Bloch European Balance Strong Pointe Shoes ES0160S


Offers all the wonderful benefits of the Balance European Pointe Shoe, but with a strong shank. Boasts a curved last that follows the natural contours of the foot, providing comfort and injury protection. Featuring a stronger shank, the Balance European allows the dancer to feel as though they can stand en pointe all day as 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 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, medium sides, open throat line of the vamp shape and elastic drawstring create a streamlined, snug fit

  • Removable internal gel cushions for the toe box for added comfort if the dancer chooses

  • Heel cushion

  • Noise reduction under the pleats 

  • A paste

  • Ribbons and elastic sold separately

Sizing: We recommend scheduling a professional pointe shoe fitting with us. If you already wear the European Balance in a strong shank, you may place your order online.

Fit:  Begin fitting two sizes down from your women’s street shoe size. For Tweens/youth we recommend choosing the same size as your street shoe size.
