S0104 - Bloch Alpha Pointe Shoe
The Alpha pointe shoe is a highly specialized pointe shoe and it is recommended only to be worn by dancers with strong leg and foot muscles. The Alpha pointe shoe suits many foot shapes. The three quarter cut down outsole emphasizes the point of contact under the instep facilitating optimal foot articulation. The shank/insole has been prepared for the dancer to modify to their desired length. We recommend leaving the inner soft leather board for arch comfort. With less resistance from the shank/insole past the break point the dancer will feel well supported and uplifted when 'en pointe'. The long vamp supports the foot by preventing it from over arching. The platform is both wide and high to allow maximum balance when 'en pointe'. The sides of the upper are cut low and the heel contoured. Paste 'B' is used to enable the shoe to mold quickly to the shape of the foot and facilitates articulation.
