Mirella Whisper Pointe Shoes - Satin
The Mirella Whisper pointe shoe is aptly named, as it is "whisper quiet" on stage.
But the features of this beautiful shoe don't stop there. It also offers a flexible medium shank at the heel which allows weight distribution to transfer to the heel rather than the toes.
The Mirella Whisper is incredibly lightweight, uses non-slip satin fabric, and has a built-in toe pad for fantastic comfort. Simply a wonderful pointe shoe!
The Mirella Whisper is available in sizes 2-8, in widths of X, XX, and XXX.
These pointe shoes have a slim, delicate look. Shank molds to arch well, Medium vamp, space in crown is good. These are easy to get over the box, but sometimes look pulled back. Very comfortable, barely any blisters! Very stable platform. I have a tapered foot with a long big toe, very bony foot.
I have been wearing these shoes for about 3 years, I've tried a number of shoes such as gaynors and many styles of Blochs. I have short toes that are mostly all the same length and these shoes have been a perfect fit for me. They are padded on the inside so they're extremely comfortable. The only thing I don't love about them is that the shank gives out faster then I would like, where the box usually takes a longer time to brake. I've specifically loved the Mirella whisper shoes ordered from dance supplies, they're a lighter color, and a perfect fit that makes it so that I'm not dealing with that one pair of shoes you'll get every once in a while that just doesn't quite feel right. Such a relief going into rehearsal season!
I have had a lot of pain in my hammer toe / generally bony feet and these shoes have really changed my life. I feel so much more stable and comfortable in them and they really work for a foot that doesn't have great arches. They also last longer than many other shoes I've worn (namely Freeds and Suffolks) and the little pad inside the platform isn't bothersome at all.
