The Russian Pointe Almaz Pointe Shoes are designed for dancers with a less-full foot and moderately tapered toes. It is a light shoe featuring a pleatless toe platform, non-slip leather sole, and next-generation shank that provides a very high level of flexibility and durability.
Almaz (Russian for "diamond"), also has a low crown, medium toe platform, and fuller heel shape for the foot with less taper from metatarsal area to heel.
This is the U-Cut version of Almaz that comes with a drawstring.
The Russian Pointe Almaz Pointe Shoes are available in sizes 34.5-44 (U.S. 5-12), 5 different Widths, and 4 different Shanks. Width 3 is the Medium width. Please note Width 6 is available in sizes 36-44 only. Almaz is available in Vamp 2 only, which is for dancers with medium length toes and is the most common.
This product was delivered in the time frame I paid for and arrived with no damage. They fit perfectly! The customer service I received was even better than the product itself. Thank you for helping us with these shoes when we couldn't find them anywhere else.
