The Bloch Fusion Sneaker is ideal for a person who is not dependent on strong arch support and loves a feather weight sneaker with great styling. Design accent features an X of sewn in ribbon in the arch area. This sewn in ribbon continues over each side of the top of the shoe forming loops where an elastic lace threads through. You can make adjustments to the fit of the shoe, with this elastic lace, by tightening the lace if you have a narrow foot. A great dance sneaker!
