Why wear split-sole demi-pointe shoes?
The split sole canvas demi-pointe shoes are designed for intermediate and advanced dancers who have a good mastery of ballet technique. The split sole makes them more flexible along the arch for proper foot movement. The stretchy fabric enhances the lines of the foot and instep. Get your teacher's recommendations before purchasing your dance shoes.
Why choose stretch demi-pointe shoes?
If you're looking for supple demi-pointe shoes that fit the shape of your foot, opt for those in stretch canvas. This stretchy fabric allows for proper foot movement and highlights the instep. The stretch canvas split-sole demi-pointe shoes can be washed by hand and should be line dried. The split soles are made of leather for durability.
What are the drawstrings for?
We listened to your feedback: These shoes once again feature a drawstring to help you get a better fit in the width of the shoe. Don't forget to tie and cut this drawstring once you get the fit you want. You should then slip the end inside the slippers each time you wear them. Clever tip: You can also attach it to the inside of the upper with a piece of medical tape.
Are there different ballet shoes for men, women, boys and girls?
Kids and adults should choose their demi-pointe shoes according to their skill level. In general, beginners start with full-sole demi-pointe shoes before switching to split-sole demi-pointes. The difference between girls'/women's and boys'/men's is the colours. Pink and salmon options are recommended for female dancers while white and black are recommended for male dancers.
Choosing the right size
To choose your size of ballet demi-pointes, you should stand with your feet together or in first position and do a few relevés. While doing this movement, you should feel that your toes are supported and spread in the demi-pointe without being squeezed or curled. For split-sole canvas demi-pointes, we recommend choosing your usual shoe size if you aren't able to try them on.
That little extra for carrying your shoes?
To organise all your ballet accessories, you'll find an elegant sparkly black pouch in your local Decathlon dance department. It has two compartments for keeping your dance shoes separated from your other accessories, such as your bun kit, rosin and plasters.

    Schönes Material

    Der Schuh bietet durch die geteilte Sohle und das stretchmaterial eine hohe Flexibilität, durch die Passform werden die Zehen gut gestützt. Auch rein optisch sagt mir der Schuh zu und ist von der Idee nicht schlechter als ein höherpreisiges Modell, dass ich besitze. Allerdings sind an vielen Stellen an den Sohlen Klebereste, was sich ein bisschen unschön anfühlt. Wegen dieser schlechten Verarbeitung, einen Stern weniger.

    Dommage qu'il n'y ait…

    Dommage qu'il n'y ait pas davantage de choix d'équipement danse pour garçon... c'est très limité pour eux ! Exemple demi pointe noire cuir taille 43 (14 ans)
