Adult "Axis" Pointe Shoes

Style No: S0190L


Sorry, this item is currently unavailable.

Bloch's "Axis" pointe shoe with ThermoMorph Technology (TMT) has a U-shaped vamp, medium shank, flat streamlined toe, lowered sides and angled seaming to minimize bagginess. This quiet shoe also features a curved last. Ribbons not included.

About TMT: Your shoes are labeled 'left' and 'right'. Once you have activated TMT with each shoe, they will be molded to the form of either your left or right foot. Until now, the process of breaking in pointe shoes has been long and painful. It is not until a pointe shoe is 3/4 of the way through its lifespan that it reaches optimal performance and comfort. To redress this imbalance Bloch has developed TMT, an advanced formula, heat activated paste. TMT enables you to drastically accelerate the breaking-in process by molding your pointe shoes to the unique contours of your feet from the very first wear.

  • Good shoes, can work for many different

    by: Galina - 07/20/2014

    Comfort:

    Durability:

    As with most Bloch pointe shoes, they seem to have a very long life. The TMT tech seemed to work well. When I blow-dried the box as directed, it got very soft, almost like putty or clay(the tip and lower area thankfully didn't). After refrigeration, they got just as hard as they came again. After a few wears they are still very hard. I will say this, however: if your pinky bunion sticks out or is wide, then the TMT will mold to it and make a very undesirable line.(Makes you look more sickled). I also activated and used the TMT in the shank. After blowdrying, it got very soft and bendable. I bent it at my arch and refrigerated and now they have a pre arch similar to Gaynor Mindens, although the shank is still very hard. It is nice because you can choose exactly where you want the shank to bend and still have tons of support without three-quartering. Just a warning, however: I peeled back the liner to see if three-quartering was an option and It seems that it would be tricky or impossible. The shank, unlike other bloch shoes, is a very tough plastic and wont separate from the sole. Basically you can't three- quarter these shoes. I have worn Bloch shoes without TMT before and the Axis are just as supportive and long-lasting. The only reason I gave them 4 stars not 5 was that they squished my big toe more than other shoes.

  • First pointe shoes and they are awesome

    by: NKay - 07/20/2012

    Comfort:

    Durability:

    I went and saw a professional pointe shoe fitter and I wound up with these babies. When I went in to get my first pointe shoes I dreaded the idea of having Blochs because I see so many girls who start out on Bloch Balance European that break down quickly, that I didn't want to be in the same situation. Luckily for me these were far better suited for me than the Balance European. I rolled up en pointe and it was like a "ta-da!" or an "ahhhhhhhh" with heavenly light shining from the sky above. They fit comfortably. Held my foot en pointe and held my foot comfortable when flat on the floor. They complimented the shape of my tapered and narrow foot. The platform doesn't scare me for how small it is, it's just perfect for being en pointe. It's also a very quiet shoe. The padding and the pleats make it really nice for when you do changement. The TMT technology certainly is a big buying point on these shoes. Without this technology I probably would be a very unhappy camper. I molded the shoes per instruction and video and they came out really nice and conformed to my feet. I made sure not to over bend the shank because you can't go back after you do that. I've had these shoes since February, so six months now and I have noticed over time that with your body heat and sweat the shoe will conform more. I can now visibly look at my shoes and can tell right from left because how they've morphed over time and body heat(I still check the tags on the inside though.) It's always important to air dry your shoes after you wear them, but I place them on my air filter where it forces clean air out. This way it dries the shoes and cools them down. If you were to put them back into the freezer you're just freezing the sweat/moisture in the shoe and the moisture will return when you warm up the shoe again. Because I'm beginning at pointe, I don't wear the shoes every day for long extended periods. I do know that breaking in was comfortable and not a pain. I can easily demi pointe, and rolling down is simple and clean. I'm still adjusting to rolling up without pliƩ because the box is long to fit my long toes. Just takes more foot/toe strength, but it's an adjustment. Overall I really do love these shoes and I'm SO glad they were my first pair.

    I just got these pointe shoes and have worn them to one rehersal and one class. I just did the TMT tonight and I think it is really going to help my break in process. Alot of people say that they are too soft but I think they are perfect! They are alot harder than normal Bloch shanks. I can't wait to use them again!

    We live in UK and got two pairs of this shoe for my daughter to dance as Clara in the Nutcracker with the English Youth Ballet. She usually wears a Suprima and we went for the same size, but one width fitting narrower than her usual. They were fabulous! The most comfortable shoe she has ever had. So durable she only wore one pair as they lasted much longer than Suprimas would have. The platform is on the small side, but bigger than Suprima and similar to any other tapered shoe. Like anything in life if it's what your used to it's fine.

  • Amazing! They harden up in the fridge!

    by: Teasag - 11/04/2008 - Washington,

    Comfort:

    Durability:

    I have had these for 5 months and they are as hard as new. After they formed to my foot, I just put them in the fridge after every class and they harden up again like new for my next class. I can't believe how much money I'm saving on pointe shoes! I've already worn through the satin and the second layer of cloth with nothing left on the tips, but they are as hard as rocks every time. I'll never switch to a different type of shoes if I can help it! DONT FORGET TO PUT THEM IN THE FRIDGE! It's magic!

    This shoe is a wonderful shoe! It formed to my foot beautifully and it actually lasted a long time for me and my high arches. They are probably the most comfortable pointe shoes I've ever had. I Definitely recommend these shoes!

    I'm really glad I switched to this shoe from the Axiom. The break-in process is really nice, I can actually get this shoe to hug my arch and support my foot on pointe.

    A lot of people say these are soft and won't last a while but I love them. They are soft but if you don't mind a slightly soft shank, they are great shoes and last quite a while. For me, they almost last about 4 or 5 months, which my mom loves.

    I have had 3 pairs of these shoes and I love them! They are really easy to balance in. I don't know why some people think they aren't! And I love the heat technology! I will probably buy many more pairs of these to come!

  • Wow these are comfy. Too soft though!

    by: Emily - 06/03/2008 - Colorado,

    Comfort:

    Durability:

    When I tried these on, they were super comfortable. I would have bought them, except for the shank. It's SO soft, I felt like I was in a constant upward battle. The shank may as well have not existed! I thought I may break the shank in the store, even with my fairly low/medium arches! Shame. If they had these in a harder shank (and let me just say I order a medium in Capezios, which most think is super soft) I would buy a bunch of these. How sad... I think us dancers need to petition Bloch!
