Bloch Tensus Demi Pointe Shoes
The Tensus Demi Pointe is a transitional shoe from the ballet flat to the pointe shoe. It is designed to provide the correct amount of resistance for foot and ankle strengthening in preparation for pointe.
The Tensus has been made on the y last (same as Synergy/Aspiration). It features an adjusted pointe shoe box construction, which is softer but still allows the dancer to experience the feel of a pointe shoe. The insole and outsole work together to provide the correct amount of resistance needed for foot and ankle strength development, while the padded insole cushion provides comfort.
This shoe is not designed for work en pointe.
The Bloch Tensus is available in sizes 2-9, in widths of B-D.
Beautiful pointes except I ordered 1/2 size too big. I got a 51/2 Bloch size, but should have taken a 5 instead which may afterall been too snug. My street shoes are a size 7 or 71/2 depending on time of the day!But even being a bit loose, they are fabulous. Happy with purchase. Will sew the heels in if necessary.
I've been using a demi pointe by Sansha, & I love it, but was shopping around for something new.. What I found was a new favorite. Break in was easy, has a snug fit, & was comfortable in demi pointe without pinching. I wear a 8.5/9m in street shoes & ordered these in a 7c. I will definitely be purchasing these again!
