Bloch Balance European Pointe Shoes
The Balance European is suited for the serious student and professional. The shape closely mimics the natural contours of the foot significantly improving injury prevention for the dancer. The low profile feature of the shoe increases the amount of surface area that is in direct contact with the foot, improving weight distribution and reducing pressure on individual metatarsals. The insole shape conforms to the arch, providing a higher level of support for the ankle joint and surrounding tendons
The wide toe provides a larger balancing platform that also enhances support for the ankle transferring through to the knee and hip joints. The wide platform enhances stability and reduces lateral and medial movement when on pointe. The improved fit of the balance pointe allows the shoe to move inline with the dancer, increasing the dancers control of the shoe. The dancer can be sure the shoe will work with them, complementing their technique.
Please note that this model is also available in a strong shank.
The Balance European is available in sizes 2-8, in widths of X-XXXX.
My daughter loves these shoes. I wish they lasted longer, but that’s what happens when you are dancing 5 days a week. They look beautiful on her feet.
My daughter loves the Bloch European balance pointe shoes!
These work well for my daughter and seem to last a bit longer.
These pointe shoes are fantastic for finding a shoe that flatters wide feet. Plus the low profile is super flattering
Bloch as a co. is good -- I've had other blochs but these are not a good choice for narrow or highly compressible feet. good for short toes, and someone with a wider toe area.
