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

The best

My daughter has tried 5-6 different pairs and was never satisfied. Until she tried these. And now we’ve bought 4 pairs and it’s all she wants!

Favorite shoes

My daughter loves these shoes. She was dancing in the Balance Lisse but they were dying too quickly, she switched to these and loves them as much as the Lisse and they last a little longer.

Pointe shoes

Went to Dancewear corner for new pointe shoes for my daughter, they do an excellent job at fitting her and listening to what she likes and needs, best place around to go for a fitting.

Hard box

These shoes have a very hard box, quite hard to break in. They also have a material at the seam on the heel that provides a lot when you got en pointe. I always have to cut and sew to avoid the yards of extra fabric, that doesn’t do much to help show your feet. I buy the hard shank and I think it is good, the regular strength one isn’t as supportive. The tapering sometimes makes it uncomfortable, especially when new.

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
