Canvas Upper, suede forefoot and heel. The Pro Elastic was developed for interdisciplinary work: ballet, gymnastics, lyrical, and jazz. It has an upper that has an upper like a ballet flat but in place of a binding and drawstring, it has an elastic piece that contours to the foot in a full range of movement. This soft elastic is ideal for floor work where the top of the foot is in contact with the floor, eliminating bruising from pressure where the drawstring is knotted. This triangular stretch canvas split sole ballet has a 100% cotton lining, pre-sewn elastics, and a forefoot outsole pad that is shaped to protect the metatarsals and minimize bulk in the arch when pointing. Made in Thailand. Original Bloch dance product. FITTING GUIDE: For women's sizes, subtract 2 to 2.5 sizes down from street.
