Is it O.K. to buy shoes with room for growth?

My daughter has been dancing for a few months now. I’d like to save some money so I’m thinking of buying shoes with room for growth. Is it okay to do that?

What about ballet shoes? Which soft slippers are best?

My daughter just started learning ballet. I hear all sorts of advice about shoes, so I’m a bit confused. Which soft slippers are best? Are pointe shoes made of wood? When can I try pointe?

Many thanks
