Split sole Silhouette canvas ballet shoe features a canvas upper, suede split sole, double strength sole stitching, triangle construction for an enhanced arch, foam protection pad at the heel, and attached elastics.
I like these shoes for my students because the elastics come sewn, but DDS is unable to keep common sizes in stock. I find the shoe comfortable with enough padding in the sole for cushioning on jumps. I typically wear a size 7.5 to 8 wide street shoe and wear a size 11N in these Silhouettes.
Great shoes! Good quality, very comfortable! Not sure how long they last, hence my 3-star durability rating, because I haven't worn them for class yet. But they fit perfectly. Highly recommend.
Please note that the buyer must sew own elastics, shoes do not come sewn. Thank you!
