Russian Pointe Rubin Radiance Pointe Shoes
Building upon the versatility and unsurpassed popularity of the original Rubin pointe shoes, comes the next generation - Russian Pointe Rubin Radiance. Made on the original Rubin last with the same box shape, Rubin Radiance adds a number of compelling improvements.
A narrower heel cut allows for a sleeker fit, while a suede tip at the platform provides improved traction and durability. Rubin Radiance features a 3/4 shank, and double-lined satin gives the pointe shoe more structure. Like the original Rubin, Rubin Radiance's low crown, pre-arched construction, wide platform and slightly tapered box combine to suit a variety of foot shapes.
Features of the Rubin Radiance include:
• U-Cut design with drawstring
• 3/4 shank
• Narrow heel
• Low crown
• Wide platform
• Slightly tapered box
• Suede tip at platform
• Pre-arched construction
• Double-lined satin
Russian Pointe Rubin Radiance pointe shoes are available in sizes 34-44, in 6 different widths, W1-W6. W3 is the Medium width. Please note W6 is available in sizes 36-44 only.
Russian Pointe Rubin Radiance is currently made in Vamp 2 only which is for dancers with medium length toes. Rubin Radiance is also currently made with a 3/4 shank only.
My daughter has been wearing Russian Rubin original, but they are quite noisy so she tried this Rubin Radiance and she loves it. It is a lot quieter and more stable in turns.
Still my daughters favorite pointe shoes. Dancing in them at least five days a week. We get two pairs at a time so she can rotate drying them in between to help them last longer.
My daughter loves wearing Russian pointe and since the brand change she has found these to be the best for her feet. She was initially worried about the new shank but it has been holding up well and the suede on the tips is a nice bonus.
These are beautiful shoes that look amazing on. The baggy heel of the original Rubin is gone. I like the suede platform; it has just the right amount of "stick" These do run narrower than the Rubin. I ordered one width bigger. Also, this website has become my go-to for shoes! They have always had my sizes in stock, unlike other online dance retailers. The service is quick and efficient. Thank you!!
These shoes are really gorgeous and made my feet look awesome. I'm going into my second year en pointe (I'm 14). Only problem is that I found they do not provide as much support as the regular Rubins, so when I went up on them, I immediately was wobbling. Maybe for dancers with stronger feet.
