In the 1990’s the monoblock shoe was introduced to the market using a specific type of polymer, thermoset plastic which does not offer the same properties as the Elektra. Since then, polymers have evolved into different classifications.
The Elektra has two main thermoplastic components: the box/shank housing and the shanks. Both components have been created to offer the most stability possible while allowing foot articulation through demi-pointe.
With the shanks also being made up of different densities of thermoplastic, we are able to fully customize the dancer’s shoes to their feet and needs. As the material can be heated and cooled multiple times without affecting its integrity, dancers can use this for an added customizable benefit showcasing the natural curve of their feet.
