Years ago when I first began this blog, one of the first topics that I posted about was my impatience with the Cecilia Kerche website that was under construction at the time. From March of 2010 until just recently, all I did was lament and moan and anticipate the grand opening of her official website. You can read all of my lamenting by entering Cecilia Kerche into the search bar here.
The New Cecilia Kerche Dance Products Are Here
It has taken quite awhile for the official website to come together. Finally (finally!), there are products for sale with the fabulous Cecilia Kerche brand name. Including pointe shoes. No longer is SoDanca of Brazil the only supplier of CK pointe shoes.
The Cecilia Kerche Line Of Pointe Shoes
There are now two categories of shoes in her line; the Traditional models and the Professional models. The Professional line includes the CK6-Pas Classique, CK7-Bayadere and the CK8-Kitri.
The Traditional line includes the CK30-Lise, CK31-La Sylphide, CK32- Clara and, are you ready? The CK40-Cinderella. Did I mention the Cinderella model? If ever a pointe shoe held such a magical, enchanting name it has to be the name of Cinderella.
The name alone conjures up romantic images of Prince Charming, glass slippers, gold-plated horse-drawn carriage rides and ballgowns that are out of this world. The basic design specifications of the Cinderella are a little more down-to-earth, of course. Because the Cecilia Kerche official website is written in Portuguese, this is the best we can get from Google translate:
Cinderella – CK 40: This model provides greater stability on the platform and more support on the side of the shoe. The insole is made of cellulose fibers and textiles along with aggregate natural resins. These materials create a memory of resistance or spring back qualities and also allow better contact with the floor.
Even Cinderella needs some stability and support en pointe while she waits for Prince Charming…
