I was wondering in most places if it was required to have to wear socks over your tights with ballet shoes. I find them really quite irritating with my ballet shoes, especially since they are such a tight fit already. I just wanted to know if it would be wrong or disrespectful to not wear them with your tights.. :)

Depends on the school. SAB didn't (doesn't?) care, but at UBA, you must wear full-length tights, and if you choose to wear white shoes, that means white socks are mandatory.

But if you wear very sheer microfiber or cotton socks, they can be just as comfy as only tights.

Yea, more than one "sock-like" thing over your tights is a bad idea.

I am attending the San Francisco SI and they want me to wear footed tights with socks over them. You guys have said this is a bad idea. Why? And do you have any suggestions for what socks or what tights i should wear if i do have to wear both footed tights and socks.

Thanks for any info..

Peace Out! :)

I wore socks over footed tights for years without any problems. You might want to try very, very thin white dress socks, or wearing tall socks with ankle-length tights--it'll look as if you have full-length ones on, and no one will know.
