The Brava pointe shoe is intended for even-length to moderately tapered toes. It accommodates feet which are broad at the ball of the foot (or bunions) as it opens up at the wings. This model narrows to the heel providing a nice streamline fit for a “diamond” shaped 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: "diamond" feet
Vamp options: 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.
