If you are needing a little extra support from your ballet shoes then look no further than our range of MDM Dancewear Ballet Shoes.

MDM offers a range of ballet shoes in leather, canvas and stretch canvas in both a full or split sole.

The MDM hybrid sole has a split sole outside appearance combined with the functional resistance of a full sole.

With the built in Dance Base Support, the ballet shoes protect and support the wearer providing sensory feedback (proprioception), controlled resistance and critical shock absorption.

It supports the foot and arch and allows the intrinsic muscles to recover when at rest.

When preparing to move into Pointe Shoes, the perfect transition shoe is your Demi Pointe. Available in a soft or hard sole, they are the perfect middle ground to begin training your feet for pointe work.

The Demi-pointe is a transitional shoe from the ballet flat to the pointe shoe.

The Demi-pointe is designed to provide the correct amount of resistance for foot and ankle strengthening on preparation for pointe work.

The S0135 Demi pointe has a leather outsole and is made on the same last as the Sylphide pointe shoe.

The generous internal space of the box area allows the foot to be inserted deep into the shoe. The resistance of the leather sole ensures that maximum strength is gained from working in the S0135 Demi-pointe.

Ribbons sold separately

Leather outsole - Encourages the foot to work harder
Sylphide last - Deep and generous box
Wider fitting - Extra width for young and broad feet

-

The Soft Sole Demi has a soft suede sole and is made on the same last as the Suprima pointe shoe.

This Demi-pointe has a streamlined shape and fits snugly at the heel because of the tapered and narrow last.

The suede sole has a narrow waist and closely mimics the natural contours of the foot staying in close contact with the instep.

This shoe has low cut sides and accentuates the profile of the foot.

Ribbons sold separately

Soft suede sole - Less resistance and hugs the arch when pointing the foot
Suprima last - Snug neat fit with a streamlined look
Low cut sides - Accentuates the profile of the foot
Narrow snug heel - Hugs the heel and reduces creasing
Smaller oval platform - Tapered toe to streamline the foot

Finally we have Pointe Shoes. Here at Showtime we stock Bloch, Energetiks, Grishko and So Danca Pointe Shoes. Each come in a range of styles and strengths to cater for each level of dancer we have here on the Sunshine Coast.
