Nova, Medium Shank
The Nikolay Nova Pointe Shoe style has a U-shaped medium vamp and a drawstring. The sole is machine-stitched. The shoe is based on the Grishko-2007 last. A heel is 5 mm lower than in Grishko-2007. The style suits most foot shapes and is recommended for both beginners and advanced dancers.
Nova incorporates several advances in pointe technology, along with design innovations requested by today's dancers. New glue gives enhanced flexibility while making the shoe exceptionally lightweight. New material in the sole provides both flexibility and silencing qualities, without sacrificing support in the shank.
Design includes a broad platform for stability and balance, longer, flexible wings for lateral support, and U-shaped vamp with a cotton drawstring. New construction helps the heel keep its shape to avoid wrinkling, and lower fabric at the heel and sides gives a beautifully streamlined profile.
