Airess Tapered Toe Pointe Shoe | Firm
Airess Pointe Shoe with #6.5 Shank and Tapered Toe Box
Assemblé like a principal dancer in the Airess Tapered Toe Pointe Shoe (Firm Shank). This premium pointe shoe has a tapered toe box and a 6.5" red board shank, 3/4 skived to zero that enhances arch support for long-lasting wear. Features built-in, plush inner lining for extra comfort and a platform that's hammered flat to create a secure balance when you visit the barre. Stitched pleating construction absorbs sound, making every movement gracefully quiet. Ideal for a tapered (Egyptian) foot. Pro Tip: When attaching Bunheads® ribbons and elastics to pointe shoes that have rose colored lining, a medium needle with a small eye works best. Suggested Fitting: For first time pointe shoe shoppers, we recommend a professional fitting at your nearest Capezio retail store.
