Based on one of the most classic Russian Pointe styles, the Entada PRO shoe has a higher crown, high heel profile, slightly higher vamp and high wings. The box is more almond or tear drop shaped with the unique feature of curving back in at the top of the wings. The pre-arch in this model breaks higher than the rest and therefore this is best intended for that higher-breaking arch, hyper-mobile foot (or “banana” foot).
This model comes of the Spotlight collection by Russian Pointe, noted for its pre-arched technology and pliable shanks.
Spotlight pointe shoes aim to highlight the arch, while simultaneously facilitate pointe work by minimizing break-in.
Best fit: sligtly tapered hypermobile (“banana”) feet
Vamp shape: V-cut without drawstring or U-cut with elastic drawstring
Materials: light salmon satin upper, cotton lining, hand-glued, natural leather machine-stitched sole
Shanks: Standard (S, M, H): give firmer support behind the toes, for the feet which need maximum support for higher-impact movements such as springing to pointe or repeated relevés and turns.
Flexible (FS, FM, FH): Russian Pointe’s unique cutout design of the stiffer layer behind the toes, these shanks allow more flexibility through demi-pointe.
