Donatella Pointe Shoe with #3 Shank and Moderate Toe Box

Roll to demi-pointe with ease in the Donatella #3 Shank Pointe Shoe. This premium pointe shoe has a moderate, slightly tapered toe box and a firm, 3" leather board shank. Features built-in, plush inner lining for extra comfort and a wide platform for much needed balance at the barre. The slight "U" shaped throat flatters the arch and creates an overal sleeker appearance. Ideal for a moderate (Greek) foot. Pro Tip: When attaching Bunheads® ribbons and elastics to pointe shoes that have rose colored lining, a medium needle with a small eye works best. Suggested Fitting: For first time pointe shoe shoppers, we recommend a professional fitting at your nearest Capezio retail store.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good pointe shoes! I am currently using these pointe shoes and I think that they work very well for my feet. The shoes have great support and hold your foot in proper alignment for dancing. However, the shank dies quickly and the box is very hard in comparison to the rest of the shoe. I enjoy dancing in these shoes and have yet to have any issues with injuries, unlike other types of shoes I have tried. I also like the inside lining, but after wearing them a few times it peels away from the inside of the shank. Overall, these are the best shoes I have used and think they work well for my dancing.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from nice but not for me I'm afraid Donatella pointe shoes aren't quite right for me. The shape of the toe box is slightly tapered, which meant going up one more size in order to feel comfortable on my feet. Having to go up one more size to have enough room in the toe box meant I had pointe shoes that were too big.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best style I've ever had The box has stayed strong longer than my other Capezio shoes and the shank is malleable enough that you can articulate your feet better. All in all more comfortable to wear. (14 years old, 3 years en pointe).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Shoes My daughter has used these for several months now. She feels they fit well and are supportive. They are a good value as well. My only critique would be they do not last as long as I would like.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Pointshoes These are my first Donatella. They are flexible, beautiful and comfortable because it has a soft arc and low toecap (capellada) for the instep
