Adult

Adult "PLIE II" Pointe Shoes

Style No: 197


Sorry, this item is currently unavailable.

New and improved!

A flattened crown compliments the natural shape of the foot while the satin binding creates a seamless transition from shoe to tight that enhances the leg line and the shorter sole is less visible en pointe. New pleating has "quiet toe" construction and the feathered toe box allows the dancer to releva with ease. A graduated shank and sole, soft cotton lining and a pre-molded shank offer greater comfort. Other features include a broad toe box, medium vamp, U-shaped throat, wide platform, three-quarter box, elastic drawstring, and a skived #3 leather board shank. For ribbons we suggest Capezio 7/8" wide ribbon.

Ribbons not included.

    Perfect Fit!

    by: NicoleB - 08/24/2015

    Comfort: 5 star rating

    Durability: 5 star rating

    I got fitted for these at my local Capezio and absolutely fell in love! Incredibly comfortable and great support. I love Capezio and find their brand works best for me. As long as you are fitted by a professional for these, I'm sure they will work out great. My big toe is the longest so I use gel covers on my big toes along with my ouch pouches and dont feel any pain. I don't have any trouble getting over my box and the broader tip makes it easier to balance. Love this shoe!

    Square, soft, minimalistic.

    by: BalletMouse - 12/22/2014

    Comfort: 3 star rating

    Durability: 4 star rating

    My first two toes are of equal length, and the rest taper. This shoe is very square and requires a lot of wool to wear without excessive pressure of my big toes, but with that modification, I love the shoe. It's quite soft, right out of the box. The demi is automatically right how it needs to be, and the shank requires little break in. If you have weak feet that wear out shanks and require something hard to hold you up, choose another shoe. These really allow the foot freedom and really only work for people who don't rely on the shank at all. It wont do any work for you. The box is soft, and the hardness stops low on the toe. The vamp is fairly low. It really allows the foot to be shown off to it's absolute maximum and work without any annoyances or inhibition from the shoe.

    Very nice for square feet

    by: Brianna - 03/05/2009

    After having several types of shoes, I have stuck with these ones ever since I first tried them on. I have square feet, so these shoes are perfect for those who do. I broke them pretty fast so I've had to order them with an extra hard shank. This makes them last a little longer. I don't think I could wear anything else!

    Awful

    by: Isabel - 02/17/2008 - California,

    I have pretty nice feet and a very flexible arch but these shoes made my feet look stumpy and archless. Getting on the box was nearly impossible. I have the Capezio Chasses now and they're MUCH more flattering and easy to work with.

    OK

    by: Lani - 06/08/2007

    Didn't take long for the box to become soft. Once box was soft, my feet sank. The low "U" vamp wasn't good for my long toes. This shoe was low profile and it was good in that way. Nice shank too.

    BAD for wide feet...

    by: Alejandra - 04/10/2007 - California,

    I'm a young dancer. Actually, these were my first pointe shoes. These pointe shoes are great, but not for everyone, especially the ones with wide feet and I'm somebody with wide feet. I recommend these shoes for people with regular feet.

    Good beginning shoe!

    by: Joan - 03/13/2007 - California,

    I really enjoyed these as my first pair of pointe shoes. However, they made my slightly wide feet look very short and stumpy! But great feel other than the look!

    GREAT!

    by: Les - 02/13/2007

    These were my first pair of shoes, and I've recently bought them again. I have wide feet so they are great for me.

    Great!

    by: Janaye - 01/22/2007 - Mt. Dora, Fl,

    I have what's called a "peasant foot" type which means I have 3 toes the same size and then the last 2 taper. This shoe is great for that! Not recommended to anyone with long slender feet. It does make your feet look a little stubby, but which would you prefer? Complete elegance and throbbing feet or a decent looking shoe that makes your feet feel so good, even after you dance? Well, if you have a foot like mine, go with this one. I've never gotten blisters with these shoes :)

    I have danced in this shoe for 5 years and never had any problems. It is comfortable and supportive. I do competition and performance work along with classes everyday. My shoes far outlast my classmates' shoes !!!

    I've tried these shoes twice because they are supposedly great for wider toe configurations, but I found them to make my feet look extra short and stubby. The toe box and the shank also break far too easily.

    Wonderful for wide feet!

    by: Anonymous - 04/01/2006

    I have wide, square feet with moderate arches and find this shoe to be quite supportive and comfortable during long classes. I love the slighly flat profile--it shows my feet beautifully. Lasts a long time, too!
