Bloch's Axis pointe shoe is designed with ThermoMorph Technology (TMT) for a perfectly fitted shoe with an accelerated break-in process. The Axis features a medium strength shank, streamlined toe, lowered sides with angled seaming, and a U-shaped vamp. A quiet shoe with a curved last. TMT heat activated paste allows the shoes, labeled left and right, to completely mold to the shape of the foot. The TMT paste drastically reduces break-in time by creating a molded fit from the first time the shoes are worn.
