The Grishko "Elite" Pointe Shoe
This toe shoe is described by the makers as:
"This Grishko® model features a broad, flat box which provides an optimal platform. The "Elite" is not pre-arched. It is extra quiet, light, and features Grishko®'s super shank. Available in Medium or Hard shanks; please specifiy when ordering. Now with drawstring."
Personally I wouldn't want a pre-arched shoe, unless it was shaped perfectly for my foot. However, if your foot matched this shoe, maybe that could work. Breaking in your pointe shoes to your own specifications is something you can learn, to ensure that all your pointe shoes support you as comfortably as possible.
Enjoy your dancing!
