It just means that you are breaking in your pointe shoes for the first time. If you cannot go on pointe do to a weak ankle or poor arch, then DO NOT CONTINUE TO USE YOUR POINTE SHOES. It can cause a serious injury due to the fact that you are unable to go on full pointe.
Breaking in your pointe shoes will take a very long time but if you use your pointe shoes everyday for a reasonable amount of time you might be able to break them in earlier than 6months. Just be sure not to use them everyday for long periods amount of time. This is will cause the bottom(the pice where you stand on full pointe) to wear away, for then causing to have to buy new pointe shoes.

Pointe shoes (aka toe shoes) are shoes that we ballerinas wear to enhance our performance. Contrary to popular opinion, Pointe shoes are not made out of wood, but of paper mache. The shoes give the illusion that we are on our toes, while in reality the shoes are supporting our weight and our toes are being cushioned by padding.Pointe shoes are not comfortable, though, and many blisters, bunions, and foot injuries come from dancing "en Pointe." To be able to dance on Pointe you must have had several years of dance and very strong ankles."If you are asking what Pointe shoes are then they are ballet shoes elevated to look like ballerinas where dancing on clouds.
