Why choose stretch demi-pointe shoes?
If you're looking for supple demi-pointe shoes that fit the shape of your foot, opt for those in stretch canvas. This stretchy fabric allows for proper foot movement and highlights the instep. The stretch canvas split-sole demi-pointe shoes can be washed by hand and should be line dried.
The split soles are made of leather for durability.
What are the drawstrings for?
We listened to your feedback:
These shoes once again feature a drawstring to help you get a better fit in the width of the shoe. Tie and cut this drawstring once you get the fit you want. Then slip the end inside the shoes each time you wear them. Clever tip: You can also secure it to the inside of the upper with a piece of medical tape.
Are there different ballet shoes for men, women, boys, and girls?
Kids and adults should choose their demi-pointe shoes according to their skill level. In general, beginners start with full-sole demi-pointe shoes before switching to split-sole demi-pointes. The difference between girls'/women's and boys'/men's is the colours. Pink and salmon options are recommended for female dancers while white and black are recommended for male dancers.
Choosing the right size
To choose your size of ballet demi-pointes, you should stand with your feet together or in first position and do a few relevés. While doing this movement, you should feel that your toes are supported and spread in the demi-pointe without being squeezed or curled.
For split-sole canvas demi-pointes, we recommend choosing your usual shoe size if you aren't able to try them on.
