With even more advancements, Bloch introduces the "Dramatica II" pointe shoe, to provide you with the most innovative, and long-lasting support. Designed using Bloch's A paste, the longevity of the shoe is increased and correct placement is reinforced. Pointe shoes also feature a slightly flatter crown for more contact, a reinforced box, a U-shaped vamp, and a low cut side that creates an enhanced profile. To avoid any slipping, the shoe is also designed with a leather grip at the heel and an elastic drawstring.
i have wide but compressible diamond shaped greek feet with short toes and wear a 6.5 street shoe. i tried these, along with the bloch synthesis, and they came in very close. they are a great split sole alternative.
i got the synthesis in a 4.5XXX but had to size up to a 5XXX with the dramatica. i love the stretch satin. they hug my heels with no bagginess when up en pointe. this model does have a bit higher wings but are a smidge less wide across the metatarsal than the synthesis. i felt just a tad less supported and comfortable in these than in the synthesis, but i would honestly go with these if i hadn't tried the synthesis as well.
