MDM Intrinsic Canvas Pink Ballet Shoe Child
The Intrinsic is a hybrid sole canvas ballet slipper that has been specifically designed to supersede the full sole ballet slipper. The MDM hybrid sole has a split sole outside appearance combined with the functional resistance of a full sole. Since the creation of the canvas split sole slipper, teachers have advised against their use for young students. With the built-in Dance Base Support, the Intrinsic protects and supports the wearer providing sensory feedback (proprioception), controlled resistance, and critical shock absorption. It supports the foot and arch and allows the intrinsic muscles to recover when at rest.
Helpful Tips for Remote Purchases
Ask the dancer for their foot length and width measurements in centimetres, then bring your ruler to the MDM foot measurement. Make sure they measure from the back of the heel to the end of their longest toe.
Do the same for the width measurement to make sure they measure the widest part of their foot - across the metatarsal area.
The number you reach will be very close to the MDM size required by the dancer.
We usually go up from about 1/2 to a normal size from here, depending on how the dancer likes their shoes to fit.
*Note MDM sizes are close to US street shoe size.
Disclaimer - We know nothing will ever be as accurate as an in-store fitting, so though this will work 90% of the time, there will be some students that you may find challenging to fit online/over the phone due to foot shape/fit preferences.
