The TotalStretch canvas ballet slipper is made from an antibacterial and wicking stretch canvas on a curved shoe to create a left and right shoe. There is an anatomically correct deep cut inner top-line sole arch design for flattering arches. The bungie memory, soft coated lingerie elastic draw string is bound by an elastic binding for an optimum and non-abrasive hold. It snugs the slipper to your foot so no straps are required. Features a split suede leather sole and heel patch, with a spongy leather sole for comfort. The short front sole and long pleats allow room for toes and arch enhancement. The strong canvas supports and protects muscles with a secure fit. Pre-sewn attached elastics.
A note about fitting: A ballet shoe fits properly when it is snug, and fits snug at the toes. When the toes are pointed if you can pinch the fabric at the back of the heel the shoe is a good fit. In a children's ballet shoe where the feet are still growing, there should also be enough space at the big toe for a small pinch (approximately half the width of a thumb). Children wear same as street. Adults should go down 2 to 2.5 sizes from street--2 sizes down for a looser fit or a wide foot and 2.5 sizes down for a snug fit or medium to narrow foot.
