NovaFlex provides extreme arch flexibility without sacrificing support. It’s unique construction allows this shoe to carry the line of your foot, both on and off pointe. Innovative materials in the sole of the NovaFlex provide astounding flexibility and silencing qualities, without sacrificing support in the shank. This exceptionally lightweight shoe shares many characteristics of the Nova, including a broad platform for stability and balance; longer, flexible wings for lateral support; and U-shaped vamp with cotton drawstring. Lower fabric at the heel and sides creates a beautiful streamlined profile and helps the heel keep its shape without any wrinkling.
