Russian Pointe’s innovative Flexible shanks have a special cut-out design that enhances lightness and flexibility in roll-through and demi-pointe.
Standard shanks have a solid construction, while Flexible shanks are cut out behind the ball of the foot. Standard shanks are designed for strength behind the ball of the foot, for springing to pointe, hops on pointe and other high-impact choreography.
