The first shade to launch from this series of complementary skin tone shades will be the B29, a warm rich brown with a subtle hint of red undertones will be available in our best selling styles, Heritage and European Balance.
Three further colorways are set to launch on the 20th October:
The B31, a deeper shade of brown with a strong depth of red undertone
The B27 a golden brown with a hint of yellow and peach undertones
The B24 a paler peachy tan with subtle yellow undertones.
Each color will be available in our bestselling styles, the Heritage and European Balance.
We are dedicated to our ongoing commitment to inclusivity and embracing the beauty of diverse complexions. Over the years we have introduced a number of complementary skin tone shades into our leotards, half sole’s, ballet flats, Blochsox, foot thongs, tights and newly launched kneepad and have been listening to our dance community to develop this exciting introduction to our Pointe shoe range.
Each colorway was meticulously planned and developed in partnership with a number of incredible dancers from our BLOCH community, with a focus on the depth and importance of undertones to ensure we bring to you the very best satin shades that harmonize with a variety of skin tones.
We would love to thank the following dancers for their support and dedication in helping us create these new shades:
