Why wear split-sole demi-pointe shoes?
Leather split-sole demi-pointes are often recommended for intermediate or advanced students who already have good technical mastery. They are more flexible at the arch to highlight the lines of the foot and ensure proper foot movement.
We recommend that you ask your teacher for recommendations before buying your ballet shoes.
Why choose leather demi-pointe shoes?
To highlight your footwork while maintaining good freedom of movement, flexible leather demi-pointes are a good choice. The leather material of the shoes and soles extends the product's lifespan.
Why are there no drawcords?
The drawcords should be adjusted and cut to size as they are quite visible. The knot blending inside the bands for demi-pointes can cause discomfort. Because these demi-pointe shoes have an elastic trim, you don't need to worry about drawstrings and visible cords. These new comfortable and attractive cord-free styles have been approved by dance professors and our professional partners!
Choosing the right size
When choosing your ballet shoes, your feet should feel comfortable and not constrained.
To check your size, stand up and go up and down on the demi-pointes several times to see how your toes feel.If you have narrow feet, opt for your normal size. If your feet are normal or wide, choose one size larger than normal.
That little extra for carrying your shoes
What could be better than an elegant pouch for holding all your accessories? Your local Decathlon dance department sells a pouch with two compartments to keep your shoes separate from your bun kit, rosin and plasters.
