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.

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. 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. Nikolay pointe shoes are considered reliable, durable and consistent. Available in Soft, Medium or Hard shanks; please specify when ordering. Ribbons not included.
