Nikolay DreamPointe 2007 (Allure) Pointe Shoes - Hard Flexible Shank
The Nikolay DreamPointe 2007 Pointe Shoes (also referred to as Allure) feature a U-shaped medium vamp with long wings and a drawstring, wide platform, and slightly tapered box. It uses a unique construction method of integrating the insole and platform with eco-friendly orthopedic thermoplastic material to provide for a wider sole and platform giving more balance and stability.
DreamPointe is built on the 2007 last, which was developed with consideration of the anatomic features of a medium width foot with a medium arch with medium or long toes. This unique construction satisfies 90% of ballerinas, and most Nikolay pointe shoe models are based on the 2007 last.
DreamPointe is an innovative model with a pre-arched shank that provides extra comfort and support to the heel. It is a paste-free shoe, and the use of thermo-formable materials help make the insole very lightweight.
Other product features include:
• The insole materials are chemical-free which gives the shoe a longer lifespan.
• The box is made of natural materials that absorb moisture and form to your feet.
• A pre-arched shank makes the shoe ready-to-wear.
• Forefront padding and pillow-like insole guarantee added comfort and coziness.
• Soft inner pad in the top of the pointe shoe absorbs load pulse during pointe work.
• Double upper helps preserve the shape of the pointe shoe.
The Nikolay DreamPointe Pointe Shoes are available in Sizes 3-8, Widths of 1X-5X, and 3 different Shanks.
My daughter had to be re-fit for a new shoe and these ended up being perfect
This is my second pair of Allures. I can shape my feet better than other shoes, the rollup/demi-pointe is easy to control, and they're quiet on the floor. Very little break-in needed but the first pair lasted me 50-100 hrs. Elastic drawstrings!
They may run wide; the pro-flex XXX which I bought ~10 yrs ago matches the Allure X.
My feet are street size 6-6.5, high arches and very compressible; I bought 4.5X.
Soft on the inside. Easy to roll through demipointe.
Hard to find this shoe in the HF shank in my daughter's size, but DanceSupplies had a couple left that worked out so my daughter was able to have some backup pairs to break in before her show She likes that they last longer than some other brands she's tried.
My favorite pointe shoes. Fit narrow feet great! Shipping was so fast too!
