The Exam is a soft, demi-pointe shoe based on the Grishko 2007. It has a smooth, leather sole and a drawstring.
- A soft insole helps strengthen the young foot, specifically by developing ankle stability and the forefoot
- Meticulous design prepares beginners for pointe work by improving balance and familiarizing the foot to the more confined space of a pointe shoe
It is recommended that the Exam be used by beginner dancers until they are ready to graduate to the Alice model. Please note that it is dangerous to stand on pointe in these shoes.
