My daughter is starting her third year of pointe classes. She loves these shoes. Many people state that these are for people with wide feet. She doesn't have wide feet at all, her feet are long and very narrow. She gets these in the 5.5 1x width. They stay on her heels and the flex point is perfect for her foot. They last her for a long time. She has tried about four different pointe shoes and these are the only ones that she has asked me to purchase more than once.

I bought a pair less than a month ago and had to get news ones last week. I only wear my pointe shoes three times a week so that's not good. The boxes were hard to get one and starting deteriorating bad enough that I couldn't get onto pointe. I don't think it was a bad pair because it happened to both shoes.

      Comments about Bloch Balance European Pointe Shoe:

      these shoes are good, but they have a shank that feels too soft for my feet, after 1 month i had to jet glue them. the shank also feels too short, it digs into my heel when i stand normally. after a while the box also started to feel too narrow, so i tried to flatten the crown more and i felt like i was going to break them..... so they are good, but not great.

      Comments about Bloch Balance European Pointe Shoe:

      Good quality overall. I had Grishko 2007s before, which are nice quality, but the blochs are actually much better on my feet. A lot of girls wear this style of blochs at my studio. The pre-arched shank is very flattering, especially for high arches. They also fit my extremely narrow feet, which is a plus. The only downside is they wear out quickly, so get a hard shank if you're a more advanced dancer. I'll likely order these shoes again.

            Comments about Bloch Balance European Pointe Shoe:

            I absolutely love these shoes. I'm currently on my 2nd year of pointe and on my 3rd pair of pointe shoes (2 of them have been European Balance). These show my feet off quite well and look nice. My only issue with them was that when I got my first pair of the European Balance is that they started to squeek when I rolled up to pointe a few weeks after I started using them. I only danced 1 hour a week on pointe with them. But my newer pair doesn't do the squeeking (I use them still for 1 hour a week and have had them for maybe 2 months now), so I guess it varies.

            Comments about Bloch Balance European Pointe Shoe:

            I use these shoes multiple times a week for a half hour to an hour! I really like these shoes, when they fit right they are really good, they are hard to break in but are really great when they are broken in, but the edge of the box wears out kinda fast if you aren't careful, and that can be difficult to dance on, but over I really liked these shoes!

            Comments about Bloch Balance European Pointe Shoe:

            As my second pair of pointe shoes, I'm not exactly sure what shoe is right for me, but these were not them. The box and shank are very durable, but the fabric on the outside is quick to become dirty. My first pair might as well have been demi-pointes so these were much better. However, I've broken this pair in twice now, the shank is too short, as is the box which is a contributing factor to my new bunion. Also, the gel pad is very uncomfortable. My feet are not very strong so it is incredibly difficult to get fully on the box. Many of my fellow classmates also have these and we all have the same complaints. I use these three times a week for about a half hour, but used them between march and august last year for about 4 hours, five times a week.

            Would like for the purchase to include elastics. Couldn't find anywhere on website as to how to order elastics to sew onto the pointe shoes.

            Delivery was quicker than anticipated! :)
