Made of two layers of Texon and a single layer of leather, the La Pointe Taper Soft shank provides light support to the arch and is ideal for dancers with tight ligaments or an underdeveloped arch. In most cases, a “beginner” who is starting pointe work will be best served with a soft shank. The minimal support provided by a soft shank will allow the dancer to stretch their ligaments to enable the dancer to stand fully “on top” of their platform. In other cases, a “seasoned” dancer with very tight ligaments may continue to wear a soft shank.

The La Pointe – Taper is ideally suited for the Egyptian foot, where the first toe (big toe) predominates, and all other phalanges reduce in length, with the fifth toe (little toe) being the shortest. The last of La Pointe – Taper provides a tapered fit on the inside of the shoe for maximum support. The U throat shape contain a cotton drawstring encased in a cotton binding. The construction of La Pointe - Taper is in the turned method and offers pleats on the bottom front of the shoe and contains a standard crown height with traditional side and heel measurements. The platform's durability is extended by a reinforcement lining placed within the box during construction. An embossed leather outsole marked with a decorative design, including the size, width, and shank strength, provides traction. La Pointe - Taper is available with pre-stitched, high-quality satin or cotton ribbons free of charge. La Pointe's - Taper sizing follows the UK sizing system.
