The Bloch Hannah pointe shoes are light weight and appropriate for a dancer looking to strengthen and build her foot. The generous platform encourages even weight distribution that alleviates pressure on the metatarsals. The last has a slight curve to it that follows the natural contour of the foot allowing the shank to stay in close contact with the instep. It offers a supple insole design and overall comfortable shape with many internal contact points. Material: Cotton, Leather.
