Dance smarter and longer in the Elista pointe shoes! Stretch canvas and elastane provide a comfortable fit, a flexible front and rear allow for complex movement, and the polycarbonate sole creates hours of additional wear. Sole is offered in medium or hard and comes in 3/4 or full shank. Recommended for medium levels. Ribbons not included.
Available in half sizes. See sizing tab for important fitting suggestions.
The shoes size small so go up 1 size from what you think you need in width. Unfortunately, there is nowhere to try these on and they are on clearance. They will be a good Practice shoe which is what I wanted. But I may need to order again at a wider width.
I wanted to try these because I was curious about the material. The sizing chart is spot on, however the description does not mention that these shoes have a fairly high vamp.
I am returning them because they do not work for my foot shape but overall they seemed nice, just for someone else.
I love these shoes, they are a great fit for my foot shape. I have a low arch, somewhat flat foot, narrow heel, wide ball of foot, and skinny toes. I wear a 7.5 street shoe and bought these in 38.5 C, and I wear Gellows and toe spacers inside my shoes. The shank has been durable, and the soles are so wonderfully flat compared to my old Russian Pointe Rubins. My two complaints are that I wish these came in a softer shank than Medium, and the tips of the box got soft REALLY fast. Merlet's quality isn't what it was 10 years ago.
I'm pleasantly surprised by these shoes, I followed the size guide and they fit really well! I have never worn these to class but I will be using them when I go back in the fall. I also love how the canvas blends in with my tights and lengthens my legs, they feel like they will hold up well for what I need.
