BLOCH DRAMATICA POINTE SHOE
The Dramatica features a unique stretch satin upper which lengthens when the foot is flat or in demi plié and returns to its original form when ‘en pointe’. The innovative stretch satin ensures an overall wrinkle free profile.
The composite fabric encased Shank structurally complements the bone and muscular shape of the foot while supporting the ¾ break of the instep. The heel alignment is kept in place by an elastic strap between the layers of the Shank. A fortifying internal centre tack provides additional Shank resilience.
The split outer sole allows the Shank the freedom to move with foot articulation. The Dramatica is made with a unique TMT™ paste, which is an advanced formula of heat activated paste. This enables the dancer to significantly accelerate the breaking in process by moulding the Box to the contours of the feet from the very first wear.
The Upper lining is divided into three fabric sections featuring a light weight stretch fabric Box lining, a narrow section of thin material for easy sewing of ribbons plus the soft suede heel cups the back of the foot providing a non slip surface.
The elastic Drawstring is encased in a stretch satin binding.
Inside the Box at the Platform is a soft sponge cushion, which gives extra comfort and protection when standing ‘en pointe’ and acts as a shock absorber.
