Russian Pointe Lumina
|Availability:||In stock (2)|
Bask in the glow of the spotlight in Russian Pointe Lumina, all eyes on your dazzling technique. With the pliable shanks, pre-arched construction and exquisite appearance of the Spotlight Collection, Lumina features a very slightly tapered box with a medium crown and wide toe platform, and a generous heel. Dancers most likely to choose Lumina have even-length to slightly tapered toes, and consistency in width from the metatarsal area to the heel (“rectangular” foot).
Exquisite in both form and function, the Spotlight Collection combines the most advanced performance features with the spotlight-worthy elegance of traditionally handcrafted pointe shoes made entirely of natural materials. Russian Pointe’s revolutionary pre-arched construction mimics the shape of the foot on pointe, to highlight the arch while facilitating pointework and minimizing break-in. Pliable, long-lasting shanks follow your every move with support and grace. The hand-sculpted classical box and smoothly fitting heel provide the perfect embrace for the foot. In six widths, six shank options, a choice of V-cut or U-cut and a versatile array of model shapes, the Spotlight Collection earns a standing ovation for every performance.
Russian Pointe’s pre-arched construction involves an innovative design process throughout the pointe shoe, including the shank, sole and fabric of the shoe. Pre-arching creates a fit more closely aligned with the shape of the foot on pointe, helping to minimize break-in time and reducing strain on the shank. Dancers with high arches experience less pressure on the front of the foot. Those with low arches find it easier to reach full pointe. For any foot shape, pre-arched construction highlights the beauty of the arch.
