The Grishko Demi Pointe (also known as a soft block) are made especially for the beginner. We strongly recommend them for use in preparation for Pointe work. They will strengthen the foot and ankles and get the foot used to working in the confined space of a Pointe shoe. It also makes the fitting of an actual Pointe shoe much easier. Also the perfect choice for an exam shoe.
These shoes have a V-shaped medium vamp, and 1/2 box which provide no pressure on the forefoot. The medium toe platform provides perfect balance and placement. The shoe is all handmade and fits standard feet. They are made of pale salmon satin with a glued smooth leather sole.
