TRADITION
MEETS
TECHNOLOGY

DESIGNED WITH EVERY DANCER IN MIND

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, Alina was born!

 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, Alina provides comfort and safety like never before. With an interchangeable shank system that uses a resilient computer printed polymer housing, you will be able to customise your shoes for each foot, variation, or situation.

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 your best fit and feel the difference.

DURABILITY - CUSTOMISATION - INJURY PREVENTION

Interchangeable shanks allow you to control the support for each foot.  Hi tech shock absorbing Poron lining provides greater comfort, reducing the need for ouch pouches. From barre to center and Giselle to Paquita it has you covered.

JUST PUT THEM ON AND DANCE!

No break-in required!  Alina takes the 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

It provides more durability, greater balance en pointe, perfect adherence to the arch, elastic drawstring side adjustment, interchangeable shank versatility, elegance and comfort. It is light and very quiet offering ease of demi-pointe roll-through, favouring pirouettes and stability of the foot on the floor, as well as toe levelers and extenders for perfect adjustment inside the box

Alina I

For dancers short to medium length toes, looking for a  low vamp profile. Alina I is the perfect choice.  This style offers the same features as Alina II but allows dancers with shorter toes the ability to roll-through demi-pointe properly and get completely over their box.

Alina II

Designed for the dancer with a Greek or Egyptian foot, Alina II 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.  Alina II offers full coverage for those dancers needing a higher vamp due to linger toes.

• 3 pairs of toe levelers and 3 extenders to help provide the perfect fit and maximum comfort.
