Russian Pointe Entrada Pro Pointe Shoes - U-Cut
The Russian Pointe Entrada Pro pointe shoes represent the exquisite marriage of the classical masterpiece Entrada with several enhancements that make it even better.
Entrada Pro features a medium toe platform and medium-high crown, best suited to dancers with moderately tapered toes and some fullness in the instep or toes.
Pre-arched construction throughout the shoe mimics the shape of the foot on pointe and highlights the arch while facilitating pointe work and minimizing break-in.
Pre-arching creates a fit more closely aligned with the shape of the foot on pointe and reduces strain on the shank. Dancers with high arches experience less pressure on the front of the foot. Those with low arches find it easier to reach full pointe. For any foot shape, pre-arched construction highlights the beauty of the arch.
Pliable, long-lasting shanks follow your every move with support and grace.
Russian Pointe Entrada Pro pointe shoes are highly customizable to ensure a perfect fit:
Size - available in sizes 34-44 (U.S. 4-12).
Width - available in 6 different widths, W1-W6. W3 is the Medium width. Please note W6 is available in sizes 36-44 only.
Vamp - available in 3 different vamps, V1-V3. Vamp 2 is for dancers with medium length toes and is the most common.
Shank - available in 4 different shanks - Flexible Soft (FS), Flexible Medium (FM), Flexible Hard (FH), and Hard (H).
Drawstring Option - this option is the U-Cut style (EPD) which is made with a drawstring.
The RP Entrada are beautiful pointe shoes and the flexible hard shank is good for dancers with strong feet who wear through pointe shoes quickly.
Perfect for mid to high profile feet. There are so few pointe shoes available for such feet. I wear flexible soft shanks which are perfect although they do not last very long. It is the best shoe for med-high profile, short, wide, tapered, normal heeled, very strong feet. It is extremely difficult to find this shoe in stock anywhere though due to high demand for mid-high profile pointe shoes.
These are my daughter's 4th pair of pointe shoes and her 4th pair of Russian Pointes. She loves how they are easy to stay over the box and how stiff they are. I love that they last a long time from "broken in" to "broken down". They have beautiful long lines and look very elegant on the feet.
My daughter is 17 and has been one pointe for 6 years. She has tried every brand of pointe shoe imaginable and most are hard to turn in, break down too fast, hurt or just make her feet look ugly. She is tall and has long feet with narrow heals, wide metatarsals and very tapered toes. It has taken her a long time to develop strong, arched feet. These shoes are the first time she has loved how her feet look. They fit so well that she can dance confidently in them whether turning, jumping or posing. The V vamp is particularly flattering but the drawstring U version is also pretty. She is a size 8 street shoe but orders size 40 in these which does not correspond to their size chart.
These shoes are great! They work best for my daughter. Dance supplies did an AWESOME job at getting them shipped very quickly! My daughter has tried 3 other styles of shoes, and we go back to the Entrada Pro everytime! Her feet look beautiful, and they do a pretty good job holding up!
