BLOCH first developed the Demi-Pointe shoe in the 1960s, as a transitional shoe to help train dancers for pointe work. The Tensus Demi-Pointe is suited to dancers with narrow heels. The Demi-Pointe is more structured than a ballet flat and the sole and box provide resistance, helping to build the necessary strength in the foot and leg muscles required for pointe work. Tempered platform and u-shaped vamp, square shaped box, low cut sides and a narrow heel combine to accentuate the profile of the foot and suit the dancer with a narrow heel, full leather outsole supports the foot and creates a smooth surface and stability, cotton drawstring. The last shape supports the foot and creates a smooth surface and stability when running, walking or standing flat.
