Designed with the timeless beauty of a classic, the Entrada pointe shoe by Russian Pointe has a medium toe platform, high crown, and is best suited to the "diamond" foot shape, with moderate fullness and moderately tapered toes. Available in sophisticated V-cut vamp without drawstring. Pre-arched construction throughout the shoe mimics the shape of the foot on pointe. Handcrafted in the grand Russian tradition, with innovative construction to meet the exacting needs of today's dancers.
My street size is 7.5, and my grishko point size is 5.5. Does the US size mean street shoe size or pointe? What size do you reccomend?
US size does mean your street shoe size for this particular shoe. If you wear a 7.5 street shoe, Russian Pointe recommends you wear a 37.5 in this shoe. Please note, sizing cannot be guaranteed. - DDS Customer Service (10/07/2014)
So Iv'e worn Capezio plie II size M 7.5
Grishko 2007 4.5 XXXX
and Gaynor Minden 7.5 med size 4 box.... what size would I be in these pointe shoes?
Unfortunately we size shoes off of street shoe size, instead of other dance shoe size, because of the inconsistency. This shoe also has a more tapered box than the 4 of the GMP you have been wearing. Also, we do strongly recommend having a proper pointe shoe fitting since even a slightly incorrect shoe size can risk foot and ankle damage. If you do still have questions about sizing please call customer service at: 800-328-7107. - DDS Customer Service (08/22/2013)

I am confused as to the widths listed as well as the shanks
The sizing for this pointe shoe is based on your street shoe size. There is a size chart listed below the description of the shoe. Please contact Customer Service at 1-800-470-1664 if you would like assistance in sizing these shoes. - DDS Customer Service (08/05/2013)

I used to wear a 4D Capezio Infinita (discontunued years ago). How do I get the equivalent in the Russian pointe shoes? Entrada, etc... I understand the length, I have no clue as to the width system. I believe I asked this question never posted months ago.
The "D" width in Capezio pointe shoes is normally the widest width they offer. I would recommend ordering the Russian Pointe Shoes in a W4, however please be advised that sizing is not guaranteed and all pointe shoes, especially when dealing with different brands, do run differently. - DDS Customer Service (08/05/2013)
Looking at Russian Pointe Shoe sale. Why aren't the vamps listed? Looking at size 35.0 W2 MF.

We only offer this style in one vamp which is the V-cut vamp. - DDS Customer Service (07/23/2013)
The V-cut has nothing to do with the vamp number. Russian Pointe has many things to identify them...model, style, size, width, vamp, shank. Model is the name of the shoe (ie. Entrada) and Style would be if you wanted u-cut or v-cut. Russian Pointe has 3 vamp sizes. In order to get the correct size you must have the vamp number (including size and width). - Loyalcustomer (10/09/2013)
