Russian Pointe Rubin V-Cut Pointe Shoes - Flexible Hard Shank
Don't see the size you need? We encourage you to consider the Suffolk Reign or R-Class Iridescence Pointe Shoes, which are designed with a nearly identical style and fit.
The Russian Pointe Rubin (Russian for "ruby") pointe shoes will have your performances shining like a gem! Rubin provides clean lines and flawless balance and support.
Lightweight and quiet with a sleek pleatless toe platform, non-slip leather sole and excellent stability, Rubin pointe shoes are best suited to the less-full foot with square to slightly tapered toes.
Rubin features a wide toe platform, low crown and fuller heel shape for the foot with less taper from metatarsal area to heel.
Pre-arched construction throughout the shoe mimics the shape of the foot on pointe.
Next-generation shanks provide flexibility and durability.
Russian Pointe Rubin pointe shoes are highly customizable to ensure a perfect fit:
Size - available in sizes 34.5-44 (U.S. 5.5-12).
Width - available in 5 different widths, W2-W6. W3 is the Medium width. Please note W6 is available in sizes 36-44 only.
Vamp - Rubin is available in Vamp 2 only, which is for dancers with medium length toes and is the most common.
Drawstring Option - this option is the V-Cut style (RV) which is made without a drawstring.
My dancer used to wear these until they became unavailable. Now she wears Nicolay 3007.

Love the shoe! Shipping was quick.
This is my favorite pointe shoe model. I have "peasant" feet, medium arch with medium/low instep. I feel my feet look nicer in this shoe than many other models I tried. The shank also naturally and gradually breaks to fit my feet. It's too bad the model has been discontinued.
