Tonal Pointe Shoes
Introducing our range of tonal pointe shoes, a series of complementary satin skin tone colorways developed with dancers to represent you.
At BLOCH, we’re dedicated to our ongoing commitment to inclusivity and embracing the beauty of diverse complexions. Over the years we’ve introduced a number of complementary skin colored shades into our leotards, half soles, ballet flats, Blochsox, foot thongs, tights and kneepads, and we’ve been listening to our dance community to develop the exciting introduction of tonal ballet shoes.
Bloch Pointe Shoes: The Shades
Each colorway in our tonal pointe shoe collection has been meticulously planned and developed. We’ve partnered with several incredible dancers from our BLOCH community to get their invaluable input, with a particular focus on the depth and importance of undertones to ensure our pointe shoes harmonize with a variety of different skin tones.
The first colorway launching in the B You series is the And finally shade B31, a deeper shade of brown with a strong depth of red undertones as worn by Washington Ballet artist Ashley Murphy.SHOP B31
The BLOCH Tonal Pointe Shoe Range
Dance is for everyone, and we think pointe shoes should reflect that, which is why we’ve worked with dancers in our community to create tonal pointe shoes to suit a range of skin tones. The BLOCH tonal pointe shoes collection includes our bestselling shoe styles, the Heritage and Balance European, in all our usual sizes. You can also find our professional Stretch Satin Ribbon in all four tonal shades. Each product in the BLOCH tonal pointe shoe range offers the same expert style and quality you can expect from BLOCH pointe shoes – in shades to suit you.
“I think Bloch has done a really great job of taking the time and making sure it’s done right. The process has been really hands on, lots of shipping pointe shoes back and forth in the mail, sending color swatches and different colortones and undertones that match my skin.” Ashley Murphy, Company Artist at Washington Ballet
