Sansha Etudes

Happiness For Short Toes On Pointe

I was so thrilled when I stumbled upon a photo and description of the Sansha pointe shoe model, Etudes! Since this model isn’t offered on the Sansha website, it slipped under the radar during my research forays.

Sansha created this model for students, but it also has many qualities that an advanced dancer can appreciate. This pointe shoe model has square shaped boxes which are excellent for dancers who prefer padding.

My very favorite design feature of the Etudes is the low, u-shaped vamp. Demi-pointe heaven!  Another great feature is being able to get it in an extra wide size.

Sansha categorizes the Etudes into 3 different variations:

Etudes 505  – medium shank

Etudes 505t-medium shank, leather toe

Etudes 506- hard shank

So many dancers with short toes have difficulty finding “demi-pointe” friendly pointe shoes that offer supportive shanks as well. The Etudes just might be the right pointe shoe model for short toes that want to be happy toes as well.
