Do you size up or down for ballet shoes?
If they are between sizes round up. If one foot is longer than the other, go with the bigger size. You may want to round up anyway to a slightly bigger size since kids grow quickly. Also, keep in mind that ballet and tap shoes tend to run a ½ to 1 full size smaller than street shoes.

Do ballet shoes have a left and right?
Is there a left and right foot? There is no left and right foot however once worn they will take on the shape of the foot.
Which is better leather or canvas ballet shoes?
Although a little pricier than canvas, leather is more durable. Many older students (teens and up) prefer canvas because it’s more flexible, sleeker, and less likely to bunch up when you point your foot. Although easier to clean, canvas shoes wear out more quickly if you dance seriously several times per week.
How often should you change ballet shoes?
Any longer and the bacteria builds up, or you get too many holes where the shoes can no longer do their job. Your feet are your best friend, and regardless of how frequently you’re dancing, you’ll want to replace canvas shoes roughly every 30 days.
What do ballerinas put in their pointe shoes?
As soon as the shoes start to break in, she puts jet glue in the tips and along the sides of the bottom to harden the shoes. Jet-gluing is a common hardening method dancers use to maximize the life of their pointe shoes.
Do you wear socks with ballet shoes?
Ballet shoes are the most critical thing you can wear to ballet class. It is not only inappropriate to go barefoot or wear socks but also unsafe as you may slip and cause injury. Always try the shoes out a bit at home first to get used to them and keep them prepped for use.
Are ballet shoes too small?
The way to tell if a ballet shoe is too small is if the big toe joint is bent. When choosing ballet shoes, please be aware that ballet shoes aren’t necessarily the same size as outdoor shoe sizes. Different materials (satin, leather, canvas) can also result in a different size requirement, even for the same foot.
Do ballet shoes stretch out?
Wear the shoe out. Most shoes will stretch out on their own, especially if they are made out of leather. If the shoe is just a little too snug and not painful to wear, consider wearing it around the house a few times. It will eventually loosen up and become more comfortable.
How do you break in ballet slippers?
Walk around in the shoes for an hour or two, until they are dry. Place the shoes in a warm place. Repeat the whole process a few hours later, and leave in a warm place each time. With one pair of socks on, slip on the shoe.
What color should my ballet shoes be?
Colour. The foot is supposed to continue the line of the leg, especially for the female dancer. Therefore I would recommend skin coloured shoes if you wear ballet tights or train with bare legs and white shoes if you wear white socks (mostly men). Black shoes may give a more masculine look for the gentlemen.
Can you put ballet shoes in the washing machine?
Washing machine. This is the most popular and convenient way to clean canvas ballet shoes. Make sure to put them on a delicate cold water cycle with mild detergent and no fabric softener. You can also put them in a laundry bag, a lingerie bag, or even inside a pillowcase to keep them safe.
