MDM Intrinsic Reflex Canvas Pink Ballet Shoe Child
The Dance Base Support protects and supports the wearer providing sensory feedback (proprioception), controlled resistance, and critical shock absorption while the Reflex Contour dynamically expands and contracts in sync with the dramatic changes of the dancer's body, maintaining aesthetic lines at all times. The strengthening and supportive features make this slipper an important tool to prepare for demi-pointe and pointe work, while the Reflex Contour is ideal for growing bodies and various climates and conditions that can affect foot size.
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.
