The Synthesis is part of the Bloch Stretch Series which
feature a unique stretch satin Upper which lengthens when the foot is
flat or on demi pointe and returns to its original form when 'en
pointe'. This eliminates excess fabric and promotes a wrinkle-free
The Last has been designed with a flat outline which facilitates extra stability when standing flat.
Shank is the revolutionary patented Relevéase which uses biomimicry to
echo the function of the human spine giving full flexion and easy roll
through demi to 'en pointe'. The shank is not attached at the heel
allowing the insole to bend high at the break of the foot and to connect
at the arch creating uplift.
The Vamp is medium length incorporating a graduated Box and the firm Wings provide extra support for longevity.
The internal suede heel grip prevents the shoe from slipping when moving between flat and 'en pointe'.
wide, tapered and low profile Platform is clearly defined to accentuate
balance and equilibrium. Under the pleats, the noise reduction
technology assists in reducing sound when on stage.
The shoes are
accompanied by attached small crescent-shaped toe cushions which are
included for additional toe comfort if required and to be inserted into
the Box at the Platform.
