Wings of the shoe wrap around the ball of the foot and feather out to dancer's 3/4 arch for ultimate support
Jersey fabric on either side of the inner heel for ease of sewing
Improved fit to the heel of the foot for less bagging of material and added suede for increased comfort
Flat, oblong platform for ease of balance
Improved satin tip for longer lasting platform
A-paste for better resilience and natural breakdown
Designed to break at the highest point of the dancer's arch, the Axi Stretch will hit all major internal contact points of the foot for the ultimate 90 degree angle.
