leanne Posted May 22, 2011 Report Share Posted May 22, 2011 Hi, I am getting exceedingly frustrated with a problem I have Whilst wearing my Bloch demi pointe shoes, on the flat, doing a long attitude or arabesque exercise my shoes feel like see-saws and my arches keep twitching and pushing my feet side to side! Causing me imbalance and sometimes even totally unable to hold attitude or arabesque for longer than 5 seconds! What on earth could be causing this please? I am fine doing these exercises wearing ballet slippers or bare feet, but it's just in demi pointes I have tried shaving the outer sole to make it more flat but that didn't solve my problem. The shoes fit me fine, right length and width, size UK 4, width B. I'm a UK 4 street shoe with a narrow foot, compressible metatarsals, tapered toes. I do 2-3 ballet classes a week and pilates once a week too. I have worn both demi pointe and pointe shoes since last spring and took a break from beginners pointe but I do some beginner pointe work once a week or so too. Thanks in advance!
