Announcing Capulet's Newest Pointe Shoe

The Capulet Pre-Pointe Shoe

The Capulet Company just introduced a new pre-pointe shoe at the DRN Expo this month.
The new shoe is lined with the same D3o material but with a softer, more pliable shank enabling the pre-pointe student to roll easily through demi-pointe while still offering the protection of the D3o. The other new feature is a built-in elastic drawstring, allowing easy entry.
