Bloch's "Slipstream" slip-on jazz shoe features a breathable mesh arch for perfect fit and foot aeration. Specially shaped top line upper removes stress from Achilles tendon when pointing. The two stage molded heel gives comfort and cushioning but retains perfect foot to floor contact. Other features include an air punched insole and a high tech comfortable, moisture removing lining.
I love the shoe- but it does run small- order 1/2 size larger. I kept the 9.5 that I ordered, but my toes suffer. I find this to be the case also with my 9.5 tap shoes from Bloch. The slipstream jazz shoe was recommended by one of my teachers- and I know why. Its great for turns... and held up well. Much better than my old capezio jazz sneakers that were horrendous for turns and tore up in a year or so. II have had the slipstream for 2 years and wear them about 2 x per week on average.
