Nikolay Pro Flex 3007 Pointe Shoes - Soft/Medium Shank
The Nikolay Pro Flex 3007 Pointe Shoes feature a U-shaped medium vamp with drawstring, medium platform, and slightly tapered box. It fits all types of feet, and is specially recommended for performances where flexibility and quietness are most important, featuring a unique design allowing it to be very flexible, comfortable, and quiet.
This is the exact same shoe as its predecessor the Grishko 2007 Pro Flex, with the addition of a new suede anti-slip enhancement in the heel area.
Pro Flex 3007 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.
Nikolay's 3007 line of pointe shoes are their globally best-selling models. They are distinguished by their perfect balance and placement, outstanding durability, lack of noise, and perfect comfort. They are extra light, made with a suede machine-stitched sole that provides an easy transition from demi-pointe to pointe and back.
Product features include:
• 3/4 shank which is a Soft to Medium strength.
• Flat and stable medium platform, balanced by hand.
• Smart paste that recalls and assumes the shape of the foot after initial use.
• Sound deadening materials integrated into the pleats beneath the box to make the shoe super silent.
• Flexible material in the inner sole to help preserve muscle energy while dancing.
The Nikolay 3007 Proflex Pointe Shoes are available in Sizes 1-8.5 and Widths of 1X-5X.
I have worn Grishko, now Nikolay, for the majority of my time on pointe. These shoes are flexible yet supportive and really help me to articulate my feet better. They don't last as long because of the flex shank, but they don't pull me back when they die like other shoes I'e worn. I find they fit exactly the same for me as the 2007 model.
I've worn these pointe shoes twice, and was hoping that they would be exactly like my first pair of Grishko's made in Russia (2007/Pro Flex). I ordered the exact same size, but to me, the shank feels harder in the 3007. It's harder for me to "get over" my pointe. I'll keep wearing them, and hopefully the shank will soften up.
Excellent manufacture. Great quality!
