Rubin U-Cut Demi Pointe Shoe
RUBIN U-Cut – Demi-Pointe Shoes with Drawstring
For a brilliant transition from ballet slippers to pointe shoes, many pre-pointe teachers choose Rubin Demi-Pointes. More resilient than slippers – yet not supportive enough for pointework – Demi-Pointe shoes give developing ballerinas a chance to build strength and gradually discover the sensation of wearing a pointe shoe. The ultra-lightweight toe box provides the perfect introduction to the feel of a pointe box around the toes. The beautifully clean-edged toe platform helps dancers find their center for pointe alignment. The shank-free sole gives gentle resistance to strengthen the feet – especially if the dancer is accustomed to split-sole slippers – without the supportive thickness of a pointe shank. With a wide toe platform, Rubin is exquisite for feet with even-length to slightly tapered toes. Learn more about Demi-Pointe Shoes.
From us at The Pointe
The Pointe at Footlights highly recommend scheduling an appointment with our professional fitters today, for the dancer’s perfect and safest fit.
Each pair of pointe shoes purchased receive one free elastic; ribbon and all other shoe accessories are sold separately.
Many teachers use demi-pointe, also called pre-pointe, soft-block or shankless, shoes, for pre-pointe training. Demi-pointes have a shaped box like a pointe shoe, but no stiff shank in the sole. Wearing demi-pointes gives dancers a more gradual transition from ballet slippers to pointe shoes. Therefore, they are never intended to stand en pointe in.
