This model looks a bit different from many of the others in their collection. The first thing that stands out is the rosy-pink colored liner. The stamp pattern on the sole is also different.
The Airess reminds me a little of the Aerial with its wide metatarsal area and sharp taper down to the platform.
What makes the Airess special? According to Capezio, the model offers:
- 2 different toe box options and 3 shank options
- Gripping no-bunch liner for traction
- A rounded platform edge for rolling onto pointe easier
- Smooth heel aesthetics
I wish all pointe shoe models had a video showing them in action on a real dancer’s feet. As with any new model, time ( and dancer reviews) will tell if the Airess passes muster with many or flops into pointe shoe oblivion.
