I am not a big fan of the 2.5 yd ribbon that many suppliers are selling - I have slender ankles and shorter ribbons sometimes barely tie! This ribbon is great, with its 3 yd length. The color matches pink tights very well, it is shiny on one side, but has enough texture on the reverse side so it doesn't slip too much against your tights. My favorite ribbon!
I recently got these for my new Capezio Tiffany pointe shoes. First of all, I have to say that they are not as bright and purplish as they look in the picture. They seem to be a good quality and have a nice shine. That's all I can judge them on right now as I haven't tried them yet.
It's actually pretty rare when a company's ribbon color perfectly matches the color of their pointe shoes. But this matches Capezio pointes perfectly! It also looks great against Gaynor Minden tights. In terms of quality, it's just average; nowhere near the quality of Freed ribbon.
