The Grande Pas pointe shoe is one of several pointe shoe models that Cecilia Kerche designed according to the shape and configuration of the dancers toes.
This model was made for those who have a long first toe with the rest of the toes tapering.
The outside of the box is different from the inside of the box. The outer, broad shaped box disguises the inner box shape which is tapered.
The shanks are called “memory shanks” which are created to hold their shape.I like the fact that these pointe shoes come pre-arched.
The shoes are made with Brazilian paste. This paste contains an ingredient that makes it resistant to moisture. There are pros and cons to wearing pointe shoes with this kind of paste.
Paste that keeps out moisture works well to prolong the life of the shoe. The downside is the difficulty in breaking them in.
These pointe shoes sound wonderful for someone with strong feet who needs a long lasting shoe.
