Muse

Russian Pointe’s Muse model has an extra-wide square box, ideal for Giselle feet.  In fact this is a square shoe in general, as the platform is also square with quite sharp edges, which makes rolling up to pointe feel a...

Brava

Russian Pointe’s Brava and Rubin models are without doubt their most popular shoes. The Brava’s wide platform make it an obvious choice for Giselle feet, but Russian Pointe claim it can work well for all dancers who have a wider...

Rubin

The Rubin has been around a long time and for good reason – it’s a lovely shoe for low profile Giselle feet.    Russian Pointe claim they are suitable for wider feet of all types.

Elite

The Grishko Elite features a broad, flat box and a low vamp – one of only two Grishko shoes suitable for wide, square feet with short, even toes (Giselle).   The other is the new Triumph pointe shoe, which is (if...

Triumph

At last!  A Grishko shoe with an (almost) square box – the widest of all Grishko pointe shoes.   So many of Grishko’s shoes have a tapered box, I was beginning to give up hope for all those Giselle girls with...
