Are there more Mexican pointe shoe brands other than Miguelito and DeVarona? Yes, there are. Thanks to a link provided by a reader, I can now share another interesting brand from the sunny country of Mexico. Specifically, from Guadalajara, Mexico.
The DanceField Company Of Guadalajara, Mexico
Checking out the company history, it appears that DanceField has been providing dance products for over 20 years to students and professionals in many genres of dance in the Guadalajara area. They have been in business since 1989 and have distributors of their quality products all over the country of Mexico.
The DanceField Pointe Shoe Model-Slim And Sleek Aesthetics
Checking out the website of this particular company, one can see that they sell shoes from other manufacturers like Capezio, Gaynor Minden and Bloch. However, they offer their very own model as well, shown below.
Vamps And Ribbons And Platforms, Oh My!
Is it me, or do those vamps seem to go and on and on? Sometimes photography does not do justice to the appearance of toe boxes and vamps, but these look like very long vamps and with a super-flat profile.
The ribbons are wide. The platforms appear small and tapered. Perhaps this shoe is for advanced dancers who have achieved maximum strength on pointe. It is certainly a shoe designed for a specialized and smaller group of specific foot issues like long, tapered toes and narrow feet.
It is always exciting to check out a new brand. Have a visit to the DanceField official website, DanceField.com.mx. Another curious thing about this company is the fact that their website language is totally in Mexican (Spanish) , but their company name is 100% English. Interesting!
