The Premiere Collection
The Premiere Collection is our hardest working collection of pointe shoes, crafted by hand in Suffolk's own England factory. With heavy paste and high wings, these pointe shoes are made to last. The hard paste and durable shanks allow this collection to be the longest lasting pointe shoes in the dance industry. Combining the high wings with our patented design, Suffolk® handmade pointe shoes guide the foot into proper placement en pointe. When fit correctly, the design of our pointe shoes will prevent the heel from twisting off the shank. The dancer will find that Suffolk® pointe shoes allow for full articulation while stretching all three arches of the foot. Professional pointe shoe fitters love the way the Premiere Collection allows beginner pointe shoe wearers to achieve correct placement over the platform. Intermediate to advanced dancers love how long the Premiere Collection of shoes last before dying because our design discourages the dancer from sitting in the shoe.
