The Jetstream pointe shoe has an EVA lined box which cushions and molds to the contours of the foot for comfort and shock absorption. This cushioning reduces the need for additional padding. The Jetstream shank/insole is not secured at the heel and gives less resistance past the break point. The dancer will feel well supported and up lifted when 'en pointe'. The lower sides of the shoe give the foot an enhanced profile. The medium/low vamp offers less resistance and allows the dancer to arch her feet over the platform.
