Hard Shank (Three-Quarter)
Made of Texon, cardboard fiber 2.5, and leather, Omega Hard shank supports a malleable arch with stretched ligaments. For the best support for this type of arch, a hard shank will provide the most significant support. In addition, the shank must conform to the foot’s arch. A three-quarter cut shank provides the utmost contact to the arch for maximum support while “en pointe.”

Like Alfa, the Omega pointe shoe is ideal for the moderate-shaped Greek foot, where the second toe predominates or two toes of equal length, as both pointe shoes share the same last. Omega, manufactured in the "turn construction" method (made inside out) with external pleats, is English shoemaking traditionalism at its best. Noted for its clean appearance when placed on the foot, Omega's elasticized binding enhances the dancers' leg line to become a natural foot extension. Additionally, a moderate crown height adds to Omega's eloquent line. A reduction of the side and heel measurement and an open U shape throat display the dancers' arch to its maximum potential. Its reinforced platform ensures extended wear, while a silicone gel tip pad applied to the inside of the shoe's platform offers additional comfort. Lateral support at the metatarsals is due to Omega's supportive wings. 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. Omega is available with pre-stitched, high-quality satin or cotton ribbons free of charge. Omega's sizing follows the UK sizing system.
