The Bloch European Balance Strong pointe shoes offer all the wonderful attributes of the Balance European with a strong shank and features a curved last that follows the natural contours of the foot, providing comfort and injury protection.

Features

  • Features a stronger shank, the Balance European allows the dancer to feel like they can stand 'en pointe' all day because the curved last and the shank remain in close contact with the instep significantly improving injury protection.
  • Tapered box with less internal space for the toes which creates a snug and secure fit. The exterior of the shoe has a more streamlined appearance without losing the width of the platform.
  • The generous platform encourages balanced weight distribution and can reduce pressure on individual metatarsals.
  • The European Balance has a diagonal side seam which reduces satin creasing.
  • The low profile of the shoe, open throat line of the vamp shape, and the elastic drawstring, creates a streamlined, snug fit.
  • Ribbons sold separately

Bloch European balance strong

Bought for my daughter and this is now her pointe shoe of choice so purchased another two pairs. She likes the stronger shank and fit really well and comfortable and they look beautiful on her foot

Wonderful pointe shoes!

My dancer has very strong feet and loves the Bloch European Balance fit. So glad to have a shoe that lasts longer than the regular shank! She has yet to jet glue a pair of the harder shank shoes. And DWC fitting staff is phenomenal! We visited the store when we were in Orlando and they tried just about every style of shoe on my dancer and we ended up in the Bloch Euro Balance shoes that she was already wearing.

Well Thought Out Design

The Bloch European Balance Strong - are the "go to" pointe shoes for my daughter. She started out with other styles/brands until she found the Bloch European Balance (ES0160). As she advanced, she stayed with the style but transitioned to the (ES0160S) - "European Balance Strong". The fit is right for her, the style is beautiful on her foot. The design ensuring more balance and reduction of injury is wonderful.

Quick Service

My daughter changed pointe shoes and the local dance store does not carry the size or style she needs because it is not common. The order was processed and shipped quickly. We will be ordering from here from now on.

Consistent Quality

Our daughter's dance director prefers using the Bloch Euro Balance pointe shoes. Their strong shank is a must for appropriate support for our daughter. We have purchased too many pairs to count over the last 3 years as she dances almost as much as she sleeps. Consistency in quality, durability, fit, and performance is paramount. We have found that in the Bloch! Our hometown dance supply store closed due to the owner's retirement, so we have to purchase the pointe shoes online now. We have had no issues obtaining the pointe shoes and no issues with quality even via mail.
