Well suited for dancers with a wide forefoot and toes that taper. The tapered box shape gives you a very flattering line. Dancers with high arches or who desire a longer lasting shoe appreciate the moderate box and shank strength. These features are also suited for dancers building foot strength. The smooth forefoot provides good stability and the narrow heel follows your heel profile closely. The extended vamp helps to hold your foot in when you are over your shoe while still providing a little give in relevé.
