Your audience will always want more – and you’ll be delighted to oblige – when you perform in Encore! With the pliable shanks, pre-arched construction and exquisite appearance of the Spotlight Collection, Encore u-cut pointe shoes feature a drawstring, moderately tapered box with a medium crown and medium toe platform, and a streamlined heel. Dancers most likely to choose Encore have slender, moderately to significantly tapered toes, and a noticeable difference in width from the metatarsal area to the heel (“diamond” 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.
