Since its inception, the renowned footwear brand has produced hand-made ballet and pointe shoes for esteemed ballet dancers worldwide. The company's success is driven by its philosophy of listening to dancers' needs. This philosophy has enabled the company to produce a product that meets both the rigorous demands and comfort needs of the performance stage. Each shoe is specially crafted to the curvature of the foot, offering protection and sustainability through rigorous hours of dance and movement.
Over the past 75 years, Bloch has established a reputation for excellence, making the brand one of the most trusted in the industry.
