Great shoes and we are trying the elastic ribbons for the first time.

Michelene Cromwell (Meridian, US)
Great for showing off a high arch

I love the Nikolay StarPointe because the are a great shoe for showing off a high arch!

Alysse (New City, US)
great shoes- hard to find in stores, glad for dance supplies!

My daughter loves these shoes. They are similar to Stream pointe, but solved the problem of the heel slipping off. they have newer technology and a flexible shank, which allows less break in time. I thought that they would last longer, but they seem to be on par with Nikolay shoes, so a decent amount of use but nothing beyond the ordinary (such as with a Gaynor). regardless, she loves them.

The Best fit and duration.
