   Pointe Shoes  Demi Pointe Shoes   Accessories    Foot Aids  



The Exam Demi-pointe or Soft block shoe is made specifically for dancers preparing for pointe work. The shoe cannot be used on pointe, but will strengthen the lumbricles in the longitudinal arch of the foot, help to establish the new balance needed in the ankle joint, as well as working the foot harder to find the correct demi-pointe position.

It is highly recommended that dancers use these shoes for 6 months to a year before going onto pointe. The transition from normal flatty ballet shoes to pointe is simply enormous. Using the demi-pointe shoe for a minimum of six months will make this final and long awaited step onto pointe so much easier and safer.

This shoe has a U shaped box, which reduces pressure on the forefoot.

You may also order Demi-pointe shoes based on the Fouette or Vaganova style.
