Pointe shoe quiz March 2, 2012

Who is the maker of these shoes?

Returning readers have seen this photo before. As I wrote in an earlier entry “I think this image is so lovely as it is evocative of both the beauty of the shoes design and the extensive training required to wear them confidently and successfully.”


  1. Hello Jill,

    You know I was lying in my bed. Trying to relax my back Thinking, where have I seen that cross hatch pattern before.

    You know that looks like one of Jill's dancers shoes. Then it hit me ! The feathering , the makers mark location , the sole pattern . The shoe width mark .The the model number that is not seen in the picture. But, is barely there.
    The shoe looks like a Bloch SO 101. Headquartered in Australia!
    How did I do ?
    Paul D

  2. Hi Paul D! You are correct; the shoes are by Bloch which is headquartered in Australia. The crosshatched sole pattern is pretty distinctive. I'm sorry no more readers decided to participate. I didn't think this quiz was that difficult.
