Pointe shoe quiz May 9, 2012

Who is the maker of these shoes?


  1. Shot in the dark here, as I can't recognize most of the telling signs, but I think they may be Freed Classics.

  2. That was a good try Eric, but they aren't Freeds. Look at the under side of the toe-box. There are no 'feathers' (pleats) there. There aren't too many makers who make styles with no pleats. I hope you'll try again.

  3. Ok Jill the quiz picture is a pair of pointe shoes that has no feathering
    One fold stitching along the outer edge of the fold.
    Also, a single stitching at the sole no making on the front part of the sole
    Tapered vamp looks like a Russian pointe shoes possible the rubin from the jewels collection .

    How did I do?

    Paul D.

  4. Hi Paul D... Yes, you are correct! the shoes are made by Russian Pointe. Good for you!
