Bella

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.  

Contempora

Some dancers swear by the Contempora as a performance shoe, because it’s quick to break in and looks good – but that means it’s not a great choice for students, because a faster break-in usually means the shoe dies much...

Studio

The Studio has the strongest box and hardest shank of any Capezio shoe.  It’s designed to be quieter and last longer than other Capezio models. It has an elasticised binding and drawstring, tapered box and high wings.  

2007

Miracle

Has Grishko gone too far in calling these pointe shoes “Miracle”? This pointe shoe certainly claims some unique features. The lining is sprayed with nano-silver particles to prevent the growth of bacteria and fungus; It’s “ready to wear” thanks to...

Pro Quiet 2007

The Grishko Pro Quiet was designed specifically for professional dancers and is, as the name suggests, specially designed to be quiet.  All I can say is, it works!  But just because it has “2007” after the name, don’t expect it...

Ulanova I

The Grishko Ulanova I pointe shoe gives a nice leg-line to dancers with moderately high arches. Somewhat tapered box best for Grecian feet.  Medium vamp.  Roll-through shank. The biggest complaint about these shoes is that the shank squeaks.  If you...
