My daughter purchased these as she went through her first set of pointe shoes. These were more supportive and provided the extra comfort she needed.
I have yet to find a shoe as comfortable and that fits my foot as well as this pointe shoe. European Balance is also incredibly flattering to my thick, wide feet with slightly tapered medium-length toes. It needs be said, too, that Bloch- across the board- makes pointe shoes that better fit wide feet with narrow heels. Bloch is the only brand I've ever worn in multiple models that I didn't have to come up with complicated and ever-more elaborate methods for keeping the shoe on my heel, and EB excels in this. I just sew a single length of mesh elastic across my instep and I'm ready to go. I'm very happy with this shoe, I just wish Bloch could make them a little longer lasting for my bendy feet.
have been using these for many years. am a dancer at college and can always trust these to last and support me
