The shoes look fine but there is an elastic strap that needs to be stitched on one side before the shoes can be worn. I don't know why the strap isn't already fixed in place as it is made of elastic anyway so will stretch as needed.
These are not Demi Pointe shoes. These are canvas ballet shoes. Please do not confuse them with Demi Pointe shoes. Demi Pointe shoes are worn whilst the student is practising for full Pointe shoes. Demi Pointe shoes outer appearance resembles that of a pointe shoe and it has a toe box, although the box is softer and the wings (sides of the toe box) are typically not as deep as those found on pointe shoes. Demi-pointe shoes are secured to the feet with ribbons and elastic band in identical fashion to pointe shoes. Unlike pointe shoes, however, demi-pointe shoes have no shank and, as a result, they do not provide the support necessary for proper pointe work. Demi-pointe shoes are most often used to train dancers who are new to pointe technique. They serve to acclimate dancers to the feel of wearing pointe shoes and to strengthen the ankles and feet in preparation for dancing en pointe in pointe shoes. The toe box allows the dancer to experience the feel of a pointe shoe, while the insole and outsole work together to provide the resistance needed for developing foot and ankle strength.
What is the elastic at the side of the shoe for?
perfectas para las clases de ballet de ninas
no son nada especificas, si quieres algo profesional no las compres, si quieres para alguna actividad más básica, no están mal
Muy buena la calidad y el precio
Resistentes a pesar del precio
Relación calidad-precio genial, y para el poco uso que las dan, suficiente
Tus pies tienen la sensación de ir descalza y te acompañan en cad movimiento de danza, muy transpirables
Son malísimas sobre todo la parte de abajo se notan todos los pliegues...
ideales para iniciación
Calidad es aceptable para el precio que tienen. El elástico para coser es muy corto.
Las zapatillas vienen con sus gomas simplemente para coserlas a la medida del pie. Son de tela por lo tanto ajustables y cómodas. Se adaptan al pie de mi pequeña permitiéndole libertad de movimientos.

Demi-pointe shoes are often used in ballet lessons. The differences are between 2 main criteria, which are the sole and the material. Full soles are recommended for ballet beginners of any age. They offer good support to the foot. While split-soles are more flexible at the arch of the foot and provide an attractive line through the foot. Often recommended for intermediate or advanced students who already have good technical mastery
The choice is very much a personal one, your teacher may recommend fabric demi-pointes rather than leather ones. They are more supple and stretch a little with use. They can however develop holes when they are toward the end of their life.
The toes shouldn't be able to move around within the shoes, they should be comfortable held in place without being too tight. A typical exercise to try: When trying on the shoes, stand up and try out a few movements such as flexing – on pointe and then on demi-pointe. All shoes have a tightening cord to make sure they can be perfectly adjusted to your feet. Once adjusted, the excess cord should be cut off. The remaining length should not hang longer than the shoes, nor be made into a loop.
