Vamp
The correct vamp will provide support and hold but not restrain movement and control of weight transfer. Toes should not be showing. It's not comfortable and indicates the wrong vamp selection.
V1

Short Vamp - recommended for dancers
who have short toes or bunions, or who
wear most of the shoe on the inside
portion of the toe platform.

V2
Medium Vamp - recommended for dancers
who have a medium toe length.
V3
Long Vamp - recommended for dancers who
have long toes and high, strong arches, or
who wear most of the shoe on the outside
portion of the toe platform.

Shank

Standard Shanks:
Designed for springing onto pointe,
this design features a solid shank from
the toe platform through the ball of
the foot. It is recommended for
dancers who break shanks in the
ball of the foot.
