Nikolay Maya Pointe Shoe
The Maya I is made on the same last as the Ulanova I but features a machine-stitched suede sole, making the shoe lightweight and flexible. The shoe has a V-shaped medium vamp, a medium platform and lighter box wings. Like the Ulanova I and Fouette, it’s a good choice for dancers with short toes, toes of even length, or wide feet with normal heels.
Grishko/Nikolay pointe shoes are made in Moscow, Russia, by expert cobblers who craft each shoe individually by hand, using natural, non-toxic materials. The company designs its shoes based on in-depth study of anatomy and function, to best ensure superb performance and protect dancers' health and safety on pointe. Grishko/Nikolay's attention to detail includes balancing each shoe by hand; using cotton drawstrings to protect against tendonitis over-tightened elastic can cause; using glues that help the toe box mold beautifully to the foot; maintaining shank mobility at the heel without sacrificing support; designing both platforms and soles to be flat and stable for excellent balance on and off pointe; and selecting only the finest satin for a beautiful appearance. Grishko/Nikolay pointe shoes are considered reliable, durable and consistent. Available in Soft, Medium or Hard shanks; please specify when ordering. Ribbons not included.
