Comfortable shoe, popular with gymnasts, equestrian vaulters and those taking part in Waldorf-eurythmy.
The Bleyer Gymmed uppers are produced using a matt finish nappa leather that is light and will allow your feet to move easily. The heel acts to prevent distortion of the calf muscles and relieve the Achilles tendon. The shoes are extremely flexible with a fairly sporty look. There is a Nappa leather-covered latex footbed for good cushioning and shock absorption.
This shoe is suitable for a range of disciplines including Eurythmy, equestrian vaulting and gymnastics.
The Bleyer Gymmed shoe is produced in Bleyer sizes 34-46 (UK2 to 10) as standard in all black and all white, with either suede or rubber sole. The rubber sole has a honeycomb profile.
Bleyer shoes are marked with European sizes. In most cases, Bleyer shoes tend to fit approximately one size small compared to typical European sizes. So, for example, if you normally wear a European 38 you would probably want a Bleyer 39. However, many customers purchasing this shoe are keen on a snug fit, in this case, please opt for a smaller size than your normal street size.
Although we are confident that these translations work for most people, this information is not a guarantee and should be used as a guide only.
The Bleyer Gymmed is an ideal purchase for Eurythmy teachers, aiding those who are wearing the shoes for long periods. Completed with fitted leather insole they are designed to minimise the effects of tiredness, tendon pain and muscle tension.

How They Fit...
Order At Least One Size Larger Than Standard Euro Sizes
Bleyer shoes are marked with European sizes but they always fit at least one size smaller than typical European sizes. So, for example, if you normally wear a European 38 you would probably want a Bleyer 39. This works for most people but a very small proportion of people require 2 sizes smaller than standard European. (Nobody ever requires their standard Euro size.)
International Shoe Size Conversions
These shoes are produced with whole Bleyer sizes, but we retail to purchasers across the globe so we have used our experience to translate the Bleyer sizes to different international sizing systems. This is by no means perfect and we welcome all feedback to improve our information. There are no Bleyer half sizes, in the translation approximations that means that there are half sizes in some, but not all, other international sizing systems.
This is simply as a result of the translations, so if your feet are a half size that is not listed, we would normally suggest that you select the next half size up. If you’re still not sure which size to select please call or email for advice. Although we are confident that these translations work for most people, this information is not a guarantee and should be used as a guide only.
