You you know those days, where your pointe shoes are being stupid, you have 5 million blisters, and your shoes are either too big or too small? And then your whole class is spend trying not to cry or start riping your hair out....
Here are some of the things I have found helpful. I would love to hear what you do/use!
- For shoes that are too small- Either your feet are swelling, it was a weird pair, or summer is coming; whatever it is, you cant waste that $80! In the fabric around the heel, separate it from the satin. You should have a layer of canvas pinched in between your fingers. Now cut the canvas in a line, leaving about 1/4 of a inch my each seam.
- For tight arches- the most wonderful thing. A foot rubz :) Just trust me on this one.
- For ripping toes- cut of the fabric on the ends. I sometimes darn mine if I am having trouble sitting squarely on the box.
- Bleeding toes? Lambs wool, ouch pouches, New Skin (liquid band aid- perfect for blisters), and oral numbing cream. If I have a blister, I put New Skin over it, and then put I corn pad (like so) over it. Works every time! The oral numbing cream can numb things that hurt!
