Bloch's split sole canvas ballet flat for men re-invents an early technique of stitching that Bloch and other cobblers employed many years ago with this type of shoe that is still in use today with pointe shoes. The elements of the Pump contain a secret combination of forces from the front toe pad and the heel cushion. They combine to prevent any material creasing under the arch, completely eliminating unsightly bunching that normally occurs when the foot is contracted.
Bloch recommends choosing two sizes down from your men's street shoe size.
