Capezio Ava #3.5 Shank Pointe Shoes

By Capezio


You asked. Capezio listened. Introducing the Ava Strong Shank Pointe Shoe! This premium pointe shoe has a broad toe box and a reinforced #3.5 shank, 3/4 skived to zero.

Ava #3.5 is built on a high and wide platform for easy balancing at the barre. One of the best "training tools" for new pointe students; this shoe gently nudges dancers to go over the box, while promoting stretch in the metatarsal and ankle area.

Product Features:
• Broad toe box
• Moderate vamp
• Slight "U" shaped throat flatters the arch
• Internal heel counter provides structure
• Removable surgical gel alleviates pressure on the toes
• High and wide platform for easy balancing
• Plush, anti-slip microfiber lining prevents excess sweating and unnecessary blistering caused by friction
• Bias side seam elongates line of the foot
• 3.5 shank, 3/4 skived to zero (3/4 Shank)
• Feathered full wing box for lateral support
• Scored ribbon motif on the ball of the foot aids with traction to the floor
• Heat embossed Capezio® logo with style number, size, width and shank on outside

My daughter’s favorite pointe shoes.

Favorite shoes!

These are my favorite shoes. I feel like I am floating the whole time, and it isn't a struggle to get over the box. Great shoes for dancers who are spending a lot of time on pointe.

Pointe Shoes

So I have been purchasing my daughters pointe shoes at a dance store outside of this one and have not been happy
After calling and talking to a representative from DanceSupplies and placing my order I was pleasantly surprised all the way around.
I found them to be attentive, responsive, and kind!
I have ordered other items since my order of point shoes and I am impressed by the fact that customer service is as good as the first time I called. This is the customer service that I’ve been looking for throughout my daughters 12 years of dancing, and even though we are not in the I will continue to order from you all as my daughter continues dancing
thank you

they last a bit longer than the 2.5s so I use them for rehersals and longer pointe classes!
