The Amelie features a medium shank and is an introductory pointe shoe, designed for dancers new to pointe work.
The graded shank allows the foot to roll up onto pointe with ease and emphasizes the line of the instep while the angled platform stabilizes the foot.
The gently curved sides of the box encourage the foot into correct alignment when 'en pointe' and the shallow box encases and supports the toes laterally and the elastic drawstring draws the shoe around foot.
The combination of these features makes the Amelie styles suitable for a variety of foot shapes especially for the beginner or elementary level dancer who requires a flexible shoe.
Ribbon and Elastic not included. See "Pointe Accessories."
