OMG! THEY MAKE CANVAS POINTE SHOES!?!!?!!?!!?!!?!!? I didn't even know that! haha one sec let me look it up!!.!.!.!.!.!.!.Well for me at least!. it seems that the canvas pointe shoe bunches up a bit more than per say the satin, so i like the look of the satin more, but you would think that the canvas would be much more durable then the satin!.!.!. I've only had mine for about a month a the satin is already fraying on the top of the box! But really i don't see much of a difference in the two shoes!. except for the fabric!.and the price! nobody would notice the difference of the shoe on stage anyways!. So i say, if you want to be different then GO FOR IT!!! haha and maybe talk to your dance teacher about them too!Www@QuestionHome@Com

I have used Sansha canvas pointe shoes!. They look great on stage because they give a nude look to your foot, especially if you use canvas "ribbons" or sew your satin ribbons wrong side up!. However, I wasn't crazy about the pointe shoe itself even though the fit and feel are the same as satin shoes!. I am not aware of any other brand of canvas pointe shoe, but I guess there might be others out there!.
By the way, I found no difference in the wear in regards to how long my shoes lasted!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

i didnt know they made those!!!! i think satin would be prettier but canvas more durable, so it depends on what you want! maybe get both!? :) one for class, one for performance! oooh now i want some!!!Www@QuestionHome@Com
