Capezio’s Bella pointe shoe has a tapered box and a 3/4 shank.    It’s designed for medium to wide Egyptian or Greek feet.  The drawstrings are elasticated.  The medium vamp is 1/4 inch shorter than the Glisse.  


Capezio’s Pavlowa pointe shoe has a long vamp by Capezio standards, and a longer heel.   The V-shaped throat offers extra support for the metatarsals, though I wouldn’t recommend them if you have bunions. These are great shoes if you have...

Grishko’s Vaganova pointe shoe is 100% hand-made (no machine stitching). Especially suitable for narrow feet with high, flexible arches. The V-shaped high vamp is supportive for long toes.  No drawstring.
