Eurotard's split sole canvas ballet shoes feature pre-sewn criss cross elastics that are ready to wear, smooth suede soles for easy gliding, and an elastic arch casing that enhances the shape of your foot. Brushed cotton lines these ballet shoes for soft, breathable comfort while the multiway stretch canvas wraps around your foot for a sock-like fit. The flattened pleating under the metatarsals adapts to a variety of shapes and the slightly tapered outer sole padding creates a cleaner heel-to-toe line. A comfortable, drawstring free elastic binding wraps around the shoe opening for a streamlined look and secure fit. Eurotard Assemblé Split Sole Canvas Ballet Shoes are available in whole and half sizes. For women, the recommended fit is the same size as your street shoes. For men, fit two sizes up. Going by these guidelines will give you a form-fitting, yet comfortable, fit. For best results, we recommend you visit your local Eurotard retailer for a professional fitting in our ballet shoes.
