Bloch's "Elastosplit Grecian" modern shoe features the support of a 1" heel combined with increased flexibility and enhanced aesthetic of Elastosplit technology. Contemporary lyrical shoe also features a neoprene strap, suede on the ball of the foot, leather upper and a flattering instep design.
I was really excited to get a pair of teaching shoes. At first I thought they were going to be great. I ordered a half size smaller than my street shoe and they seemed to fit well. The top part of the shoe looks like it should be stretchy, but the stitching prevented it from that. I have worn them for about a month and they look like they need to be retired already with all of the stitching ripping on the top. I also think that the front of the shoe is unflattering to my square foot shape. It makes me look like I am sickling while I am pointing my foot. The last thing I need is for my students to think sickling is the proper technique.
