In order to fit the largest amount of dancers, the Elektra has a "U" shaped box allowing you to get up on top of your shoe while the "V" shape throat gives the appearance of a leaner foot. As the box is wider through the metatarsal and offers strong wings for lateral support, the low-profile and tapered shape finish with a perfectly proportioned platform.
Is the Elektra for a beginner or professional?
Both! As we want to fit the foot of the dancer and not the ability of the dancer, the Elektra can be used by a beginner, professional and everyone in between.
Can the Elektra be used as a demi-pointe shoe?
Yes! By not adding a shank to the shank housing, the Elektra is a perfect demi-pointe shoe that allows dancers to feel the box without rocking back and forth on an outsole.
Can additional shanks be purchased?
Yes! You are encouraged to try additional shanks to alleviate issues around a “good” and “better” foot. Also, extra shanks can provide options in strength for differents types of classes and performances.
How long will the Elektras last?
Although the precise numbers of hours will vary from dancer to dancer, it is safe to say it that it double the dancelife of what you are currently wearing. As the box will not soften, you will be replacing your shoe for aesthetics and not because they have lost their support.
Why is the Elektra not sold online?
We are adamant about a PURE FIT. Being properly fit is key and can minimize the possibility of injuries. All retailers that sell the Elektra will go through a training process ensuring their ability to properly fit the Elektra.
