The Eva Pointe Shoe

After reading numerous reviews about the Karl-Heinz Martin Eva pointe shoe model, I was convinced that this model is one of the most popular pointe shoes on the market today.

I find it incredibly interesting that Karl-Heinz Martin was an engineer who decided to use his backround to create pointe shoes that really suit a dancers needs.

He created the Eva pointe shoe model for professional dancers with strong feet. The shoes are constructed with detail to high quality using the best Italian leather and satin  materials.

The Eva model has a lower profile box and tapers slightly. According to the Karl-Heinz Martin company, the “R” sole variation has the hardest shank on the market today. This shank is supposed to be even harder than Grishko’s hardest SH shank.

You can only imagine how strong a dancers feet have to be in order to articulate her foot in shanks so hard.

After I look past all of the construction elements, I find myself looking at a very aesthetically pleasing pointe shoe.

The shape of the shoe is neither too square nor too tapered. It seems to be just right……
