Check out the “Arc Angel” a project by design student Guercy Eugene that re-imagines the pointe shoe. Nike Pointe Shoes is a fascinating idea: a sort of half pointe shoe complete with an athletic tread sole and an elastic exercise band that wraps around the foot to prevent sickling. Theoretically its sneaker-y materials make it more durable than traditional shoes, too. It does look pretty cool. Arc Angel is a shoes solution which will reduce the cause problems for dancer’s feet during pointe work training. The Arc has major support offered by installed elastic bands, which will inspire correct method of this type of art. Traditional pointe shoes generally last 8-10 weeks. Using durable materials, the Arc angels will last the dancer for an extended time period.
