The Hannah pointe shoe is made on a shallow curved last helping the shoe to maintain contact with the instep when the foot is 'en pointe'. The shoe arches with the foot and emphasises the line of the arch while still providing support. The vamp length is medium which supports the foot by bringing the weight over onto the platform. The shank/insole is structured to be very flexible and to allow full mobility of the foot to rise through from the flat, quarter, half, three quarter and seven eights to 'en pointe'. The flat wide box assists the reduction of pressure on individual metatarsals while the narrow profile and low sides accentuate a sleek and aesthetic profile. The generous, wide platform encourages even weight distribution.
