I love finding new and interesting pointe shoe brands! All the better if they happen to have a pleasing aesthetic and are made in pale peachy/pink satin.
Even though I now have a backlog of brands that I need to post about, the Vanassa brand has topped the list for today.
What I know About Vanassa In General
After spending some time doing what I love to do best (research), I can tell you that these pointe shoes are a Chinese brand made by the Wa Nasha manufacturing company in Hong Kong. Although I found several instances of the spelling as Wana Sha on global market websites, most spelled it Wa Nasha.
The Vanassa Name Brand Is Well-Known In Europe
The Wa Nasha company makes dance products and shoes that are sold under the brand name Vanassa. The company has been a supplier of top-quality dance shoes since 1937. There is no doubt that this brand name has a huge following of dancers. Go to Google images and enter Vanassa舞蹈鞋.
You will find numerous photos of their best-selling jazz and performance sneakers for dancers. You can also see them listed for sale on Aliexpress.com., another global shopping network. I saw this brand on several Italian market sites as well.
The Sole Design And Specifications
As far as I know, neither Wa Nasha manufacturing or Vanassa have a direct website link to their products. The closest thing to an actual website for ordering these shoes is the Chinese version of eBay, Taobao.com. Again, trying to translate Chinese wording and symbols into legible English needs a skilled interpreter.
The website where these pretty shoes can be ordered appear to have a wealth of information next to the shoe image. Sadly, the words may or may not give great detail about fitting specifications. Since my Chinese reading skills are sorely lacking, it will take more time to find out about these models. Google Translate did not help me on this one.
The Vanassa Queen is available online through a private seller on the Chinese version of eBay. You can see them here at Taobao.com. Of course, finding the official website for Vanassa dance products is preferable to adding an eBay listing to the sidebar, but for now, that will have to do.
