Sleek and elegant, the Alfa pointe shoe is ideal for the moderate-shaped Greek foot, where the second toe predominates or two toes of equal length.
Handmade in the classic "turned construction" method (made inside out) by craftsmen trained in age-old European shoemaking traditions, dancers embrace Alfa worldwide.
Its clean lines contribute to a moderate crown height with lowered side and heel measurements. An open U-shaped throat provides freedom in the vamp area. The throat of the pointe shoe features an elastic drawstring encased in a cotton binding. Its reinforced platform ensures extended wear, while a silicone gel tip pad applied to the inside of the shoe's platform offers additional comfort.
High wings provide lateral support to the metatarsals. A polyurethane (microfiber) insole and back-quarter panels prevent "sliding" in the shoe and wicks away moisture. An embossed leather outsole marked with a decorative design, including the size, width, and shank strength, provides traction.
Alfa is available with pre-stitched, high-quality satin or cotton ribbons free of charge. Alfa's sizing follows the UK sizing system.
