Specially designed for ballet dancing , this pair from Bloch is lightweight. With soft leather upper and full sole, this really is a must have. These shoes are secured with the use of two elastic bands that cross in an ‘X' shape at the top of the arch. By removing unnecessary materials, the dancer's arch becomes more visible. The dancer's foot is still supported and protected whilst looking incredibly streamlined. Bloch makes a comprehensive range of dance shoes and accessories designed specifically for dancers. Working with the dancers is an essential part of designing garments and shoes that will perform well, enhance movement and feel great. Their greatest pleasure is when dancers tell them that they love their products. Disclaimer: Please note the product colour may differ from the colour shown in the photo.
