La Pointe- Taper, Medium, Full
Made of Texon, cardboard fibre 2.0, and leather, the La Pointe Medium Taper shoe provides ample support to the arch for most dancers. For dancers with pliable ligaments, a medium shank allows dancers to stand "on top" of their platform with great ease.
The La Pointe Taper is ideally suited for the Egyptian foot, where the first toe (the big toe) predominates and all other phalanges reduce in length, with the fifth toe (the little toe) being the shortest. The last of La Pointe Taper provides a tapered fit on the inside of the shoe for maximum support. The U throat shape contains a cotton drawstring encased in a cotton binding. The construction of La Pointe Taper is in the turned method and offers pleats on the bottom front of the shoe and contains a standard crown height with traditional side and heel measurements. The platform's durability is extended by a reinforcement lining placed within the box during construction. An embossed leather marked with a decorative design, including the size, width, and shank strength provides traction. La Pointe Taper follows the UK sizing system.
