Push boundaries with equal comfort, support, and ease. Bloch introduces the Blochsox - featuring built-in spin spot for easy turns, grip control lines to help hold the sock in place, brake lines for better control, compression panels that hug the foot, and a padded heel for added comfort. Great for men and women. Bloch tip: To reduce the stickiness, add a small amount of baby powder to the silicon grips. See sizing tab for important fitting suggestions.
I hate dancing in socks, I would rather be forced into a single turn because the floor is too sticky for my bare feet, than putting on socks...but these! These are niiceee, I love where the brake lines are, kinda also forces you to stay up on a super high releve. I love how the spin spot aren't too slippery. The heel grippies are going to take some getting used to but they provide pretty good grip. The compression is everything, like, right out of the packaging, they looked like they were going to be small, but they basically formed to my feet, I loved it. So wish I had thought to bought these last year when I was doing Release Technique, but I've been on the hunt for good socks to dance in and these are they!
Only 3 for durability because I literally just got them, so can't comment on that yet...also, I used them at home so far, so can't speak to how they hold up on studio flooring.
I was tired about getting blisters and generally wearing my feet down. I had no idea dancing barefoot for contemporary would be harder on my feet than pointe shoes! Regular socks are too slippery and a lot of those half shoe, barefoot things come off and are too fussy for everyday class. These are perfect. The tractions is far back enough it still allows you to glide and slink around, but it catches when grip is needed. I bought mine almost a year ago and will be buying another pair. They held up well until I forgot take them out of the wash before putting the load in the dryer. I'm a women's 8.5 street shoes and the M fit perfect. It has a compression type fit.
I am primarily a ballet dancer, but have been taking a weekly contemporary class to push my boundaries. Ballet slippers felt like they kept me from feeling the floor, regular socks were too slippery, but dancing barefoot was tearing up my feet. These are the perfect solution of protection, a turning surface, and the grips are in the right places that I don't slip and slide. I really love the compression elements and the cushioned heel. I plan to order more of these!
These are great! We were looking for something to use instead of slippery jazz shoes when practicing at home during social distancing, and these work wonderfully. Durable knit material with a bit of compression. Nice grips and a good-sized turn area that likes hardwood as much as vinyl flooring.
Will definitely get more of these for the next convention season.
I bought these for my college dance class. We often rotate through different dance styles and these have worked for jazz, lyrical, modern, etc (basically anything that doesn't require a specific shoe). The arch is fitted so you feel supported, and the grips do seem to add some stability. They fit true to size, however, if you are someone blessed with thick calves like I am, they will be a bit snug there (as most socks are). I'm sure after I wear them a few more times they'll stretch. I also wore these for a yoga class and they worked well.

I've always been extremely careful about making sure the size is as close as can be before purchasing online. I hate having to return items due to incorrect sizing description. When it comes to dance footwear I have experienced that often the sizes run very big...meaning even though I normally wear a streetshoe size of 6 for most shoes, when I order dance footwear I usually need to order a sizetwo smaller than my regular size to get the right fit. Can you please speak to how these socks run in comparison to a womans normal streetshoe sizing? If I'm normally a size 6 in regular shoes will the size that corresponds to size 6 for women run true to that sizing ? Or will I need to order downup a size? Your feedback is greatly appreciated as there are no reviews of others experience to go off of as a guide...
Manufacturer recommended sizing can be found under the sizing tab in the product information. This is based on women's street shoe size. - DDS Customer Service (07/29/2019)
