Toe Savers

Recommended Posts

I hope this hasn't been posted for already, but, I saw a couple years back in a dance magazine an ad for toe savers. They are supposed to go in the tips of your pointe shoes and keep your toes from getting blistered or something. So, I was wondering, if you get those, would you have to get a size larger in pointe shoes, or what, and what do they really do?

The toe savers are to put inside your pointe shoes against the interior platform. I believe they were created to take the pressure off of the big toe, but if the shoes fit right to begin with, then we shouldn't need all that stuff. :clapping:

 

Would you have to get a bigger size? I hope not! Shoes should fit properly with the padding just making them more comfortable, not taking up so much room thta we have to get a larger shoe to accomodate the padding. :P

My half sister did some ballet but not pointe, so I was very curious about that. Thanks! That made a lot of sense!

I completely agree. I know when I have blisters and try to use a lot of padding and gel stuff it just makes my shoes feel more uncomfortable because I have all this weird stuff in my shoes. :yes: I know I feel the most comfortable dancing when I don't have to wear anything in my shoes...except maybe some paper towel. :lol:
