"Glisse Pro" Pointe Shoe

Style No: G115


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 releve 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 length vamp, low sides and heel, round shaped throat, wide platform and a #3 leather board shank 3/4 skived to #1. For ribbons we suggest Capezio 7/8" wide ribbon.

Ribbons not included.

  • Feels comfortable

    by: nycballerina - 12/26/2012

    These pointe shoes feel really comfy, but they did die a bit quick. I just think it was because of the amount of pointe I do, not really the shoe's shank. I currently use these kinds, but I think I would want to try a different type of shoe. Capezios do fit me best, so If anyone knows a Capezio shoe with a hard shank, that would be wonderful.

  • Comfy and look beautiful

    by: Angel22 - 05/09/2012

    Comfort:

    Durability:

    These shoes are fantastic. Each pair lasts me about 4 months, and i dance for about 4 hours each night, so they're durable as well. As soon as i started dancing in this shoe, i won't switch for any other shoe. They look beautiful on my feet, and are so comfortable. Plus, i have absolutely NO arch, but this shoe gives me a pretty one. I love this shoe, and would definitely recommend it to anyone who dances en pointe, whether they're just being put up, or have been dancing for 14 years like i have.

  • didn't last very long

    by: maddieb - 04/28/2012

    Comfort:

    Durability:

    My first pair of pointe shoe's were the regular Glisse, and because I have strong arches and a nice point, I ordered the Pro so it might last longer. My first pair lasted me 4 months. At least two months of wearing my glisse pro's in pointe class, one of my shoes was just deformed or something because in both feet, it felt like there was a rod going through my toe, and it wasn't like that with the opposite shoe. So for a while, my pointe class was VERY uncomfortable. In between each combo i would be on the floor trying to do something for it. These shoes lasted me only three months. I wouldn't recommend this shoe if you have strong feet.

    These shoes are great. I've had them for over 8 months and they're still in great condition, even with me taking dance four times a week.

  • Ugg... no really

    by: Jo - 06/09/2008 - North Carolina,

    Comfort:

    Durability:

    If you could rate these shoes a 0, I would. They are perhaps the ugliest shoes on the planet. I have never met a person who liked them and I have never seen them look good on anyone's feet. They are cut too high in the heel. The vamp is ugly and difficult to break at the 3/4 point. The shank is odd looking. Lastly, it is extremely difficult to get over the box on these shoes, even for an advanced dancer. I have met many teachers who recommend these shoes to beginners. I have only one thing to day to that. "what in the world?" So anyway... DO NOT wear these shoes. Try the Bloch Balance if you like the wide platform.

    I've been wearing these shoes for a while now (after switching from Glisses) and love them. I have wide toes and an extremely high arch and they create a great line. The high vamp could definitely be a problem for some people but it just depends on your foot. For me it's perfect, and although they do break quickly, most pro or semi pros will break any shoe in a couple of days, so it isn't a big deal for advanced dancers. NOT for people who need a ton of support from their shoe.

    I am on my 4th pair of these shoes and they are fantastic! They are comfy and create a pretty line for my foot! I have extremely wide feet and this shoe fits it better than any other shoe I have had! A great buy!
