Bloch first developed the Demi-pointe shoe in the 1960s as a transitional shoe to help train dancers for pointe work. The Demi Pointe is more structured than a ballet flat and the sole and box provide resistance helping to build the necessary strength in the foot and leg muscles required for pointe work.
The Aspiration Tensus Demi has a leather outsole and is made on the same last as the Aspiration pointe shoe. The last shape supports the foot and creates a smooth surface and stability when running, walking or standing flat.
The S0155 Demi-pointe has a square shaped box, low cut sides and a narrow heel. These features combine to accentuate the profile of the foot and suit the dancer with a narrow heel.
