vamp is found over the toe and its made from solidified product. The sole, made from natural leather, holds the shoe together at the bottom and supports the arch of the foot while en-pointe. They come in different textures for included or reduced traction.



Ribbons and elastic protected shoe to foot. Ribbons are crossed around ankle, and elastic bands hold shoe to the arch of foot while en-pointe. To tie your shoe, hold both ribbons in both hands and cross in front.

You would initially clean the shoes ... Especially with point shoes since they get in touch with ground a lot and you have to remove that dirt off the shoe. You would use a cleaner to get rid of the dirt and then once you've gotten rid of that dirt on a natural leather shoe, you would use a polish, whatever color would be correct or a neutral polish if you can not find a polish that matches.
