Prodigy Pointe Shoe by Virtisse
Prodigy pointe shoes are made using a new, modernized last which is engineered with a fuller box that follows the evolution of the shape of dancers’ feet and the use of toe pads. A machine-stitched leather sole, long wings, and a wide, flat bottom surface of the pointe shoe provide excellent balance and greater contact with the floor with enhanced comfort and less pressure on the feet. Lightweight construction, exclusive noise reducing technology in the box, Prodigy is recommended for dancers with a square forefoot, short toes and a low to medium arch.
