BRAVA U-CUT – Pointe Shoes with Drawstring

You’ll exclaim “Brava!” as soon as you slip your feet into this marvelous u-cut pointe shoe, and your audience will agree! With the pliable shanks, pre-arched construction and exquisite appearance of the Spotlight Collection, Brava u-cut pointe shoes feature a drawstring, slightly tapered box with a medium crown and wide platform, and a streamlined heel. Dancers most likely to choose Brava have even-length to moderately tapered toes, and a noticeable difference in width from the metatarsal area to the heel (“diamond” foot).

Brava fits “diamond” feet with even to slightly tapered toes.

  • Wide toe platform
  • Slightly tapered box, narrows from metatarsal to heel
  • Medium crown

Spotlight Collection

Exquisite in both form and function, the Spotlight Collection combines the most advanced performance features with the spotlight-worthy elegance of traditionally handcrafted pointe shoes made entirely of natural materials. Russian Pointe’s revolutionary pre-arched construction mimics the shape of the foot on pointe, to highlight the arch while facilitating pointework and minimizing break-in. Pliable, long-lasting shanks follow your every move with support and grace. The hand-sculpted classical box and smoothly fitting heel provide the perfect embrace for the foot. In six widths, six shank options, a choice of V-cut or U-cut and a versatile array of model shapes, the Spotlight Collection earns a standing ovation for every performance.

    These are the BEST pointe shoes I’ve had in a long time!!! I was finally fitted properly and am thrilled with Russian Pointe. They fit around the foot very well and I didn’t have to rip out the sole or any other extraneous padding. I’m not a professional and I only wear them once a week, but I’m able to keep them on for the whole class and they don’t hurt. I totally recommend them and plan on sticking with this brand for now on!

    I LOVE these pointe shoes! They are the best ones I have ever tried. They are the most comfortable, most beautiful, most supportive, best quality, have gorgeous color, and they last me much longer than other brands. I have the exact foot in the description, square-even toes, and a “diamond foot”. Bravas fit my feet so well and I feel more confident wearing these! “Brava” Russian Pointe! Thank you for making this amazing shoe!!

    I was pre-professional in the 1980’s and returned to pointe work at the age of 52 (!) so a perfect fit was a must. Having started with Bloch and then GM, there always seemed to be a compromise. I decided to have a professional fitting and the Russian Pointe Brava shoe really worked and flattered my diamond shaped, rather wide feet. They were the easiest shoes I have ever sewn ribbons and elastics into and are a beautiful rose colour. Pointe work will never be easy, but these certainly help on the journey.

    I honestly LOVE these pointe shoes!! I have tried just about every brand of pointe shoes out there but always find myself coming back to my Russians. They last me a very long time which is great considering the amount of dancing I do on them! So happy to have finally found my shoe!

    My daughter has tried just about every brand of pointe shoe. This was her first time in a Russian Pointe. She has short, straight toes, a wide foot and narrow heel. Shoes always have so much extra fabric at the sides and the heel. She likes a strong shoe with a stable platform. Shoes were always a compromise. She had that magic moment when she tried them on and they are so sleek on her foot. She came home from class last night and said she can turn even more pirouettes now. I am also glad to be able to get enough supply.

    Pointe shoes are very personal, and the perfect shoe varies for every dancer. Having tried several different brands of pointe shoes before I found the Brava’s, these are by far my favourite. I have short toes, wide feet, and really high arches, so I had never been happy with my previous shoes. These shoes are perfect for me, and I would recommend them to anyone still on the hunt for the perfect shoe!

    I love Russian Pointe! My first pair were Bloch and did horrible things for my feet. I was then introduced to Russian Pointe by the owner of the studio I go to. I am 27, so comfort was a must for me! I have tried GM on more than one occasion and have absolutely hated them each time, so I keep coming back to Rusian Pointe. Then I discovered RP “Brava” and I have never looked back! These are truly my favourite shoe! I can balance a long time and feel supported the whole class and through rehearsals! They last a long time too, which is another plus! I highly recommend these shoes! My foot is just like the description too so they fit like a glove! Thank you RP for making these awesome shoes!
