Bloch European Balance Pointe Shoes - Regular Shank - ES0160 Womens

Size Guide
Bloch Women's Pointe Shoes Sizing Guide
Women should start 2 - 2.5 sizes smaller than their regular street shoe size. Pointe shoes should be an exact fit to ensure the shoes are properly supportive of your foot and ankle. Your toes should feel flat and touching the end the of shoes when in a plie at the barre. Enpointe, your foot should feel supported in the box of the shoe with limited sliding. The wings of the shoe should cover and support the toe joints, and the shank should not twist on the foot. The shoe will mold to your foot with wear.

Women should go an additional half size smaller and consider one size narrower if they intend wear the pointe shoes without padding.

For styles ES0160, S0172, and S01732, women should start 1.5 - 2 sizes smaller than their regular street shoe size.

Product sizing is to be used as a guide as the actual fit may vary. If you have any concerns about product sizing please contact us prior to ordering.

The European Balance Pointe Shoes by Bloch allows you to perform with control.

    • The Balance European allows the dancer to feel as though they can stand en pointe all day, as the curved last and 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
    • Diagonal side seam reduces satin creasing
    • The low profile of the shoe, medium side, open throat line of the vamp shape, and elastic drawstring, creates a streamlined, snug fit
    • Heel cushion
    • Noise reduction under the pleats
    • Elastic drawstring
    • Accommodates most foot shapes
    • Wide platform for stability
    • Slightly tapered to square box

Style: ES0160

Good pointe shoe

My daughter has been wearing this shoe ever since she was fitted.

Fits very small

Shoe is probably ok. I usually wear a size 5 in Bloch Sonata and the size 5 in this shoe was way too small. ??

First pair of Pointe Shoes

These are my first pair of pointe shoes. I was fitted at a store but they didn’t have the next size up of the European Balance in 0X.
They fit perfectly and are definitely the most comfortable for my feet of all the other ones I’ve tried (Grishko, Freed of London, Capezio and Suffolk).
They were delivered very quickly and in perfect condition.
