Abstract (en)

The finding relates to the production of square-toed ballet shoes and namely the arch support therefor. The problem is the deformation and the next definitive break of the arch support upon getting up on point because of the lack of bending elasticity of the materials. Such problem is due to the use of arch supports of pressed board that deteriorate with the continuous arching of the foot and do not ensure a steady, constant inclination of the foot over a maximum of eight dancing lessons. The solution consists of an arch support made of soft synthetic material formed of a smooth upper portion and a lower portion consisting of five sections having two bevelled sides that ensure a fixed, constant inclination upon arching the foot. <IMAGE>
