Russian Pointe Rubin
|Availability:||In stock (2)|
The Russian Pointe Rubin (“ruby”) glows and captivates with rich, lustrous elegance. The stellar versatility of this amazing pointe shoe has given Rubin unsurpassed popularity among discerning ballerinas. The low crown, wide platform size and slightly tapered box combine to suit a variety of foot shapes, while the pleatless platform gives a polished finish. Pliable, long-lasting shanks support with grace, and 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.
Perfectly cut for brilliance, the Russian Pointe Jewels Collection shines with refinement and sophistication. The pleatless toe platform provides a polished appearance, with crisp edges to enhance balance on pointe. Pliable, long-lasting shanks follow the arch with graceful support. The low crown and sleek heel work together for an elegantly molded fit, ideally suited to dancers with shallow to moderately full toes and the “diamond” foot shape (tapered from metatarsal area to heel). Lightweight and quiet, with special non-slip leather soles, six shank options, six widths and a choice of V-cut or U-cut and front or side drawstring, Jewels Collection pointe shoes are true gems.
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.
