The Jetstream pointe shoe has been created with an innovative box design exclusive to Bloch. The new EVA cushioned box molds to the contours of the foot for greater comfort and shock absorbency eliminating the need for additional padding. Carefully tailored upper lining to reduce creasing. Low profile for a perfect continuation of the leg line.
I have tried many pairs of shoes to find a good fit for my feet. I need a short vamp, low profile, narrow width, but long in length. I have tried Freed Studios, Freed Studio IIs, Russian Pointe Sapfirs, and Suffolk Starlights. I decided to try Bloch Jetstream and finally found a good match. I don't know about durability yet, but even if they die pretty quickly I am pleased with the fit.
I wear a street shoe of 9.5 women's (41 European) and narrow as narrow can be in width.
My Russian Sapfirs were Vamp 1, V vamp.
Bloch Jetstreams are 7.5, A width and I love them!
I am intermediate adult dancer (grew up dancing, still going strong). I will be ordering again.
I was so disappointed with this shoe! The color is not ballet pink; it has an orange tint. Also, I am a skilled pointe dancer and I need a more advanced shoe. I chose this shoe because it was considered an advanced shoe, but the shank is so stiff and the the toe box is so big that a beginner could use this shoe. As far as the "built in padding' goes, there is none. This shoe was such a let down.
I am a professional dancer and it has taken me nearly 20 years to find a shoe I like so much. I have a high arch but short toes so to find something that supported well but didn't put too much strain on my achilles tendon has been hard. These shoes are wonderful! I feel so centered and the rise from demi to pointe is so easy, the support is fantastic. They do break in somewhat quicker than others, but they really conform to your foot nicely. And for the price, I'm not complaining! They are also quite comfortable. I do not like to wear any kind of ouch pouch or lambswool in my shoes, I'm old school, so the padded box is rather nice! Love these!! Thank you Bloch!
I don't have great feet but am a strong dancer. After having been through nearly every pointe shoe style imaginable I found the Jetstreams and love them. They make my feet look nice and are supportive while still easy to dance in. They low vamp is also great for somebody with short toes like me.
These are my first pair. I've had them for 2 classes now. They were easy to break in and they make my foot look really good. As for comfort, I wear gel bunion guards and ouch pouches with them. My feet hurt (totally expected), but I never have to adjust the shoe in class. They are gorgeous and everyone comments on how nice my feet look. They are a great buy.
I like the color and style of these shoes but they squeak a lot when you first wear them. The sizing is true I wear a 9 1/2 in street and a 7 1/2 B in these. The shank is great!!! not to strong or weak. It gives me way more support than my old Capezios. The only thing is that the box wears out really fast and I do about three classes a week on pointe for one hour each and after the first two weeks the satin toar off the bottom. Other than that this is a great shoe with good support and comfort so just give them a try and see what you think. It may have just been the floor at my dance studio that made them squeak.
