RUBIN RADIANCE U-CUT – Pointe Shoes with Drawstring

Working from the versatility and unsurpassed popularity of Rubin, comes the next generation – Rubin Radiance. Made on the original Rubin last with the same box shape, Rubin Radiance flaunts dazzling new features. A narrower heel cut allows for a sleeker fit, while a suede tip at the platform provides improved traction and durability. Rubin Radiance features a 3/4 shank, and double-lined satin gives the pointe shoe more structure. Like the original Rubin, Rubin Radiance’s low crown, pre-arched construction, wide platform and slightly tapered box combine to suit a variety of foot shapes.

  • 3/4 shank
  • Narrow heel
  • Low crown
  • Wide platform
  • Slightly tapered box
  • Suede tip at platform
  • Pre-arched construction
  • Double-lined satin

Jewels Collection

Perfectly cut for brilliance, the Jewels Collection shines with refinement and sophistication. The pleatless toe platform provides a polished appearance, with crisp edges to enhance balance on pointe. The low crown and sleek heel work together for an elegantly molded fit, while special non-slip leather soles and noise reducing platform construction enhance your on-stage experience. Pliable, long-lasting shanks follow the arch with graceful support.

    An outstanding and the most beautiful pointe shoe you’ll ever experience! Lovers of the original Rubin will adore this updated shoe! I absolutely love the narrower cut heel which solves the unwanted baggy heel problem I always have. The arch fits and accentuates my feet perfectly and the suede tip allows the shoe to last longer with no satin tears at the tip. I highly recommend! Try it! You’ll live it!

    If you love the original Rubin, you’ll love this updated shoe!
    Issues I had with the old version:
    1: I would have to sew the tip of the box back together because the layers would just keep peeling off.
    2: The bottom of the shoe felt wobbly to stand in
    3: The heel cut swallowed my foot
    4: They are pretty loud shoes
    So happy to report the new version fixes ALL of these previous issues!
    Be advised these run a little smaller. I normally wear a 37 -width 3 in Rubins. I had to get a 37-Width 4 in this new version.

    These shoes look fantastic. The narrow heel eliminates all issues with baggy heels in other styles, and the drawstring keeps the rest of the satin lying nicely along the line of your foot.

    I do really wish they came in Vamp 1 and FS shank like other RPs to better fit my feet. They also take a bit longer to break in and are pretty painful during that process, and I’m not totally sold on the suede tip as I prefer to darn my own, but it has lasted a lot better than traditional tips.

    Overall, once they’re ready to go, these shoes look and feel beautiful. Definitely will be switching to this style for all future orders.

    I absolutely love these shoes!! My Rubins were great but these are amazing! The pre-arched shank makes breaking in easier and the suede platform gives just the right amount of friction with out the shoe being sticky (which is a problem when having to use rosin). The narrow heel is great for me as my heels are narrow and I always have a problem with the heel of my shoe coming off. The outer sole is probably the best thing about this shoe – adagio will be so much easier for everyone. The last thing is they look and feel amazing on my feet! I would totally recommend these shoes to anyone and everyone!
