The best selling Balance European has a curved last that follows the natural contours of the foot, providing comfort and preventing injury. The Balance European makes dancers feel like they could be en pointe all day because the curved last and shank stay in such close contact with the instep, significantly improving alignment and stability. Featuring a wide platform for balanced weight distribution and reduced pressure on individual metatarsals, a snug-fit box with silicone comfort pad for a secure fit, and a diagonal side seam to reduce satin creasing. The low profile of the shoe, open throat line of the vamp, and the elastic drawstring creates a streamlined, neat fit.
