The Suffolk Solo is the original offering from Suffolk and is still considered to be one of the finest pointe shoes in the world. The shoe has a medium profile and aligns the foot and assists the dancer to go en pointe in the proper placement. The wing is comfortable yet supportive, and the strong, stable box has a lower vamp in the perfect U shape. The elegant line of the shoe and slight taper of the box allows the shoe to mold perfectly to the dancer’s foot.
The Solo is available in three shank options:
• Light - more flexible and has lighter paste on the bottom of the foot.
• Standard - 2 mm board.
• Hard - 2.5mm board.
Available in sizes 1.5-8, in 9 different widths and 3 different shanks. Note that size 8 is available in widths N, X, XX, and XXX only. Fitting suggestion is U.S. Street Size minus two and a half sizes.
