New Pointe Shoes Now in Store!!
We are excited to announce the arrival of the new Airess pointe shoe by Capezio! The
Airess will introduce a new sock lining. The lush, rose-colored, synthetic fiber envelopes the foot and lines the complete interior of the shoe’s upper and shank. This gives both a soft feel and gripping effect, allowing the pointe shoe to be a natural extension of the foot. A wrapped shank prevents the lining from bunching up underneath the toes.
The Airess features a low crown, narrow arch, and a reduced and rounded heel curve,
which provides a flattering appearance to the dancer’s foot. The “U”-shaped vamp compliments the arch and a short leather outsole eliminates excess material at the heel.
Engineered to provide extra support and stability, the Airess has a full wing for additional lateral support, a flat and even platform that provides stability en pointe, and elastic binding and drawstring to offer a more secure fit around the dancer’s foot. The rounded edge on the bottom of the platform eases the roll through demi pointe and reduces noise.
The Airess will also use a new shank construction with three different strengths:
FlexiFirm (with a one-half shank), Firm (with a three-quarter shank) and MaxiFirm (with a full-length shank).
We are also pleased to announce the arrival of the Grishko Miracle! Grishko has incorporated a healing technology into the construction of the Miracle. Nano-silver particles are sprayed on a layer of soft material in the lining of the sole and box, allowing constant contact with the foot to promote healing. Neutralizing harmful bacteria, this technology also works to minimize odor.
The Miracle is made on the same line as the 2007 but has a lower heel. Its flexible and elastic materials adapt to the shape of the foot the moment it is tried on. This shoe is incredibly comfortable and can be worn without toe pads!
This model has a U-shaped medium vamp and platform with a drawstring. It has an
elegant box shape, long flexible wings and a balanced platform. The heel is 5 mm lower than the Grishko 2007 model and new glue provides lightness and durability. This model has its own special shanks: LM (Light Medium), LH (Light Hard).
These shows allow movement as light as a feather, without fatigue, enabling you to reach a peak performance, the Miracle is every dancer’s dream. The shoes protect, give a feeling of comfort, adapt to the foot shape, and facilitate movement.
