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 coloured 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 colourway 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 harmonise with a variety of different skin tones.

“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 colour swatches and different colourtones and undertones that match my skin.”
Ashley Murphy, Company Artist at Washington Ballet
