Sylphide

Bloch’s Sylphide pointe shoe is intended for beginners en pointe.  It has a rounder toe shape to help the dancer roll up on to pointe.

Suprima

The Suprima has the narrowest platform and most tapered box of all Bloch pointe shoes, which gives it a beautiful aesthetic but also means it’s only suitable for dancers with narrow, tapered feet.  The strong but flexible shank is supportive...

Glisse

The Capezio Glisse was designed from specifications developed by Gine Chant.  Gine is an ex-dancer herself and also had over 10 years’ experience fitting pointe shoes before designing this shoe, and the results speak for themselves – it’s one of...

Glisse Pro

The Glisse Pro is built on the same last as the standard Glisse with a few refinements including a lower cut and less material in the heel. It is also available with an extra strength shank (look for “ES” after...

2007

Everybody loves Grishko’s 2007 pointe shoes! Grishko claim this shoe is suitable for all kinds of feet, and the range of users certainly seem to support that view.  It is tapered, though, so I doubt dancers with square toes would...

Nova

These shoes are very similar to the 2007:  the vamp is the same but the heel is noticeably lower.   The main difference is the broader platform and high, flexible wings. Like the 2007, these shoes will suit a wide variety...

Proflex

If you like the Grishko 2007 pointe shoe but find it too hard to break in, you’ll love the Grishko Proflex.  They’re made on the same last as the 2007 but are more flexible, thanks to a new kind of...

Triumph

At last!  A Grishko shoe with an (almost) square box – the widest of all Grishko pointe shoes.   So many of Grishko’s shoes have a tapered box, I was beginning to give up hope for all those Giselle girls with...

Russe

The Prima Soft Russe pointe shoe model has a plunging Russian-style v-cut vamp, ideal for short toes.  It has a somewhat tapered box (suitable for Grecian feet) with a low profile.  The graduated roll-through shank requires very little break-in.
