Roll to demi-pointe with ease in the Donatella #2 Shank Pointe Shoe. This premium pointe shoe has a moderate, slightly tapered toe box and a firm, 2" leather board shank. Features built-in, plush inner lining for extra comfort and a wide platform for much needed balance at the barre. The slight "U" shaped throat flatters the arch and creates an overal sleeker appearance. Ideal for a moderate (Greek) foot. Pro Tip: When attaching Bunheads® ribbons and elastics to pointe shoes that have rose colored lining, a medium needle with a small eye works best. Suggested Fitting: For first time pointe shoe shoppers, we recommend a professional fitting at your nearest Capezio retail store.
