This shoe is based on the classic Grishko Fouette model but uses a suede machine-stitched out-sole (instead of the Fouette's glued leather one). Maya I features a broad box and a wide-medium platform, a V-shaped vamp which perfectly supports feet with high arches. This is an excellent shoe for wider, square-shaped feet with a high arch. The Maya I shoe with a softer shank or its Pro-Flex edition will be a good choice for dancers with flexible but weak arches.
Best fit: square (Roman) feet with a high arch.
Last type: Fouette, V-shaped medium vamp.
Box shape: slightly tapered
Materials: light salmon satin upper, cotton lining, hand-glued, natural suede machine-stitched outer sole.
