Russian Pointe Sapfir Details
Russian Pointe Sapfir pointe shoe is lightweight and quiet with a sleek pleatless toe platform, non-slip leather sole and excellent stability.
Russian Pointe Sapfir (Russian for “sapphire”) is best suited to the less-full foot with moderately tapered toes. Sapfir pointe shoe features a medium toe platform, low crown and fuller heel shape for the foot with less taper from metatarsal area to heel. Pre-arched construction throughout the shoe mimics the shape of the foot on pointe. Next-generation shanks provide flexibility and durability.
Russian Pointe’s exclusive pre-arched construction enhances the beauty of the arch, decreases pressure on the front of the foot (for high arches), makes it easier to reach full pointe (for low arches), minimizes break-in, and may enhance longevity.

Russian Pointe size chart and sizing tips
Sizing of pointe shoes can vary depending on the toe pad used. However, the chart below is a good general starting point.
34, for example, refers to an adult ladies size 4. The sizing chart is in reference to pointe shoes only.
At Loretta’s Dance Boutique, we sell pointe shoes in women’s sizes only because children’s muscles aren’t developed enough to dance in pointe shoes. By the time girls are ready to dance on pointe, they fit into ladies sizing.
