    This is my daughter’s second year on pointe and these are “her” shoes. She’s tried many other brands and nothing compares to the fit of these shoes for her. Her feet are beautiful in them and she has never complained, even once, of any (unusual) pain from the shoe. Mom and daughter both highly recommend these! Thank you, Russian Pointe!

  2. Keri Nakae

    These shoes are amazing! I have really wide feet so I ended up getting a side 39 XXXXXX! The drawstring is so nice to have. I love my Russians!


    Amazing! I wore the same pair of pointes for 7 months and were still in great shape! Never complained about pain either! definitely recommended. I would never chose another shoe.


    Great shoes! These were great to begin pointe on and I’ve never complained once about pain! I wore the same pair for about seven months and were still in great shape! I also have very narrow feet and these didn’t have a difficult time fitting me like many other brands did. Couldn’t be happier!

    This is the best fitting pointe shoe for support and comfort. The drawstring is great for the disappearing heel. The shoe makes you foot look beautiful! I love my Rubin U-cut with the drawstring!

  6. Ella Woods

    These are the only shoe that fit my foot and I love them! I have a very wide foot so not many fit me well but these shoes do! They make my foot look beautiful! However, I have only been on pointe for five months and I’m already on my third pair of these wonderful shoes! I go through them pretty fast.

      We are very happy to hear of your success in the Rubin! In terms of longevity, the average lifespan of a pair of pointes given proper pointe shoe maintenance (rotating pointes between wears, allowing for enough drying time, etc.) is 15 hours of wear. Beyond that, it’s typically time to purchase a new pair of pointes. One other fact to consider is your shank strength. If you are finding that your metatarsals are rolling forward over your platform when en pointe, you may wish to increase your shank up one strength level.

    Love these shoes. I have been through so many types and these are the ones I’ve been able to stick with. The only thing that could make them more perfect is if there was a size 35.5. Otherwise, I love the flat platform which makes balancing so easy, and the shank breaks in just the right place.

    Tried getting back to pointe and have tried many brands for my long slightly wide feet. These fit great at initial fitting and have become my new fave!
