i love these Russian pointe rubin radiance pointe shoes! i started from chacottes to bloch and capezio and then grishko, then finally to russian pointe. i love that these are the rubin but a little bit different, with great improvements. i love that there’s 3/4 shank, which helps with controlling flexibility and strengthening the foot inside, they also make my feet look great! i love that there is a suede tip to help me from not sliding or falling. the tips are also sewn in a way that it makes it look darned, which is cleaner look and time-saving.
