Bloch Raffine, ballet pointe
Raffine model is inspired by the type of pointes used in russian schools. It's similiar to the Heritage model, but has a few adjustments. The insole is shorter on the outside, it fits the foot more nicely, it more adheres to it and it's slightly curved. It moves into a slightly raised heel without padding. Surplus material has been removed to make the pointe line smooth, elegant, natural. The platform of toe is oval. The medium height box with a V cut and longer wings nicely positions the foot in the box and helps maintain stability. The laces for tightening are cotton. Reinforced satin minimizes noise and makes the pointe more resistant. The sides of the pointe are lower. Package contains two silicone pads to relieve pressure on the toes. Ribbons are not included.
