YOU PUSH YOURSELF
As an artist and an athlete, you expect your body to do the almost-impossible. Só Dança understands these demands and ALSO pushes boundaries to create the perfect marriage of tradition and technology.
With this, Elektra Tech was born!
After 200 years of tradition, Só Dança has married the aesthetics of the past with engineering of the future. By giving you choice, you will be able to create the PURE FIT with Elektra Tech and feel the difference
Só Dança has been tirelessly perfecting new technology that helps reduce injury and outlasts the long-established paper maché pointe shoes. With innovative engineering that respects past tradition, Elektra Tech provides comfort and safety like never before. With an interchangeable shank system that uses a resilient housing, you will be able to customise your shoes for each foot, variation, or situation.
DURABILITY - CUSTOMISATION - INJURY PREVENTION
Interchangeable shanks allow you to control the support for each foot. From barre to center and Giselle to Paquita, it has you covered.
Designed for the dancer with a Greek or Egyptian foot, Joy II is wider through the metatarsals and tapered through the toes. The ample platform provides stability en pointe while the shank-housing and box construction allow for a beautiful roll-through. Soft wings provide support through the metatarsals and create a beautifully smooth look through the toes. Joy II offers full coverage for those dancers needing a higher vamp.
For dancers looking for a similar profile to Joy II but need a lower vamp, Alegria is the perfect choice. This style offers the same features as Joy II but allows dancers with shorter toes the ability to roll-through demi-pointe properly and get completely over their box.
No break-in required! The Eleketra takes stress off of your body by being immediately able to roll through demi-pointe and relieving pressure from your Achilles as well as not decaying like normal paper maché pointe shoes, therefore reducing the risk of injuries
EXPERIENCE THE NEXT GENERATION OF POINTE SHOE WITH ELEKTRA TECH
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
