Nikolay Maya I Pointe Shoes - Medium Shank
The Nikolay Maya I Pointe Shoes feature a V-shaped medium vamp with drawstring, medium platform, and slightly tapered box. They are recommended for dancers with narrow feet with a high or medium arch.
Aside from the brand name change, this is the exact same shoe as its predecessor the Grishko Maya I.
Maya is built on the Fouette last, which was developed with consideration of the anatomic features of a narrow foot with a high arch. Dancers with Egyptian or Greek shaped feet should consider SuperTriumph, and in the bigger widths (4X-5X) it can be suitable for Roman shaped feet as well.
Product features include:
• Flat and stable medium platform, balanced by hand.
• Smart paste that recalls and assumes the shape of the foot after initial use.
• Machine-stitched suede sole, making the shoe lightweight and flexible.
The Nikolay Maya I Pointe Shoes are available in Sizes 3.5-7.5, Widths of 1X-5X, and 3 different Shanks.
If you used to wear maya with 3/4 shank Medium before , it would be a good choice to choose soft shank. Pretty hard.
I have low arched feet and Maya works well for me.
