Daughter just tried these pointe shoes and they are amazingly light. Flexed into arches even with cold feet (which usually makes it harder to get fully over box in over hard shoes, but in this case she just popped up perfectly.) The low vamp showcased her low instep better than most pointe shoes, while the high wings still supported her somewhat long toes. Elastic used drawstring is always preferred by her to ensure shoes fits her tapering foot back to heel well. Really flat and nice sized platform. This shoe is the best she has found. Over the years, she has tried virtually every show and brand. This newer shoe turned out to be a win. She has strong feet, though not very flexible ankles, a lower instep, a medium arch and somewhat long toes with a med/low profile foot. This shoe is also just barely more tapered in the inside which supports all the ties while still giving a good platform.
