Ballet Stuff: Sansha Pro1c
I ganked Denis’ Sanshas, which he doesn’t wear anymore, re-sewed the elastics, and wore them to class last night. The width proved suitable, which answered my remaining question about them (I know I like canvas shoes, people speak well of them, and they seem to wear well).
I’m glad it worked out as well as it did, because I had already ordered myself a pair — size 11N, which is basically a 41 narrow in European sizes. They arrived today. I’ve sewn in the elastics and they’re ready to go.
My balances seemed more stable last night — two-foot demi-pointe balances seemed pretty effortless. Part of me thinks, “It’s gotta be the shoes.”
Anyway, the new Sanshas are the right width (finally), which means they don’t roll off at the heel, and the right length, which means they fit well fore-to-aft without cranking the around-the-top elastics ridiculously tight.
I’ll try to give them a proper review (and some pictures?) after class on Saturdy. Unless I make it to Friday class, which is marginally possible.
