This lightweight shoe will fit best the feet which are somewhere in between Egyptian and Roman shape, with a low arch. The platform of the shoe is tilted forward so it can help weak feet to reach full pointe and really exersise their muscles. The elasticized binding along with the drawstrings will fix the shoe on the foot. Does not require breaking in.
The Développeé pointe shoes come in two shank options: #3 (very soft) and #5.5 (soft), both 1/2 tongue lenth to help and enhance the arch.
