The European Balance pointe shoe makes the dancer feel like they could stay 'en pointe' all day as the curved last closely follows the natural contours of the foot.
The European Balance pointe shoe is made on a curved last which closely mimics the natural contours of the foot. This allows the shank/insole to have close contact with the instep. The wide platform encourages balanced weight distribution and can reduce pressure on individual metatarsals. The diagonal side seams reduce satin creasing. This shoe's low profile and open throat line together with the elastic drawstring create a streamlined, snug fit.
