You need to work with your teacher on this -- don't just show up for class one day with pointe shoes in hand! Hopefully, they'll either be able to go with you to a dance shop for your first fitting or to bring that person to your studio (like if there's a group of students that are all having their first fitting).

Fit and comfort are critical. You should try several different makes and styles within that particular make. A good clerk will know how to find what works best for you.

Happy dancing! :D

different shoes for different people however the bloch aspiration (as of many beginner shoes) works well with most beginners.
