Grishko is a genuine Russian pointe shoe maker.
2007 - Grishko's best selling pointe shoe. Ideally suited to low profile Grecian or Egyptian foot, but popular with many other dancers. Long vamp.
Fouette - Grishko claims this quiet, flexible shoe will suit any type of foot.
Maya - a lighter weight, non-squeaky version of the Ulanova I
Miracle - super lightweight, whisper quiet, heat-molded pointe shoe. Ideal for Grecian feet, low profile, medium vamp - but built on the 2007 last, so may suit other feet too.
Proflex - Made on the same last as the 2007 but more flexible and easier to break in
Pro Quiet - Though this is based on the 2007 shoe, the extra silencing features - which make this shoe whisper quiet - noticeably affect the fit, so it suits narrower feet than the 2007.
Triumph - Grishko's second pointe shoe for wide, square (Giselle) feet with short toes. Low profile, medium vamp.
Ulanova I - the Ulanova I and II are different pointe shoes. The Ulanova I is a medium-profile, medium-vamp shoe best for Grecian feet. Ulanova II is noticeably more tapered.
Ulanova II - this shoe is difficult to find!
Vaganova - a high vamp, hand-made tapered shoe, highly recommended for Egyptian feet. Medium profile, long vamp.
About Grishko pointe shoes
Grishko is a relative newcomer to pointe shoe manufacturing, but have quickly gained an excellent reputation for their shoes, which are made at their Moscow factory.
The shoes are well-designed, which is not surprising since the company was started by the scientist husband of a Russian ballet dancer.
