Grishko’s attention to detail includes balancing each shoe by hand; using cotton drawstrings to protect against tendonitis over-tightened elastic can cause; using glues that help the toe box mold beautifully to the foot; maintaining shank mobility at the heel without sacrificing support; designing both platforms and soles to be flat and stable for excellent balance on and off pointe; and selecting only the finest satin for a beautiful appearance. Nova incorporates several advances in pointe technology, along with design innovations requested by today’s dancers. New glue gives enhanced flexibility while making the shoe exceptionally lightweight. New material in the sole provides both flexibility and silencing qualities, without sacrificing support in the shank. Nova’s design includes a broad platform for stability and balance, longer, flexible wings for lateral support, and U-shaped vamp with a cotton drawstring. New construction helps the heel keep its shape to avoid wrinkling, and lower fabric at the heel and sides gives a beautifully streamlined profile.
