Vaganova, V-shaped high vamp.

The Maya II fit my feet like a glove. Sizing is exactly as the chart indicates. Comfortable for a foot that’s narrow, high arched with longer toes.
Loved that the string starts halfway back at the side seam. This means it never causes a “cutting” pressure across your heel, no matter how tight you pull on the string.
I sometimes use toe pads, so will order a second pair that are slightly longer/wider for this purpose.
Thanks again Bestpoint.com for selling this very rare style of pointe shoe.
