The Suffolk Sterling Pointe Shoes have the most classic pointe shoe shape in Suffolk's line. This is a pointe shoe for compressible feet and lifts and elevates the foot en pointe.
One of the broadest platforms in Suffolk's collection, Sterling provides the ability to improve balance on pointe. The elegant line allows for proper placement and aids in alignment. Sterling has a medium profile and suits dancers that prefer Suffolk’s medium vamps.
About Suffolk's Corps de Ballet Collection
The Corps de Ballet Collection is handcrafted in England, made up of traditional pointe shoes made inside out and turned to reveal the right side of the pointe shoe after the shoemaker has hand-pasted the toe box into the shoe.
These lightweight shoes are known and loved by dancers that want the shoe to mold quickly to their foot. From the stage, dancers appear to wear flat slippers when wearing shoes from this collection. Many artistic directors favor the aesthetic of Suffolk pointe shoes made in this traditional British style of shoemaking. They are the only classic pointe shoes that feature Suffolk’s patented design which extends the life of the shoe.
