You may have already mastered those amazing moves in pole dancing, but with bare feet. This time, you need to take on the challenge of doing your acrobatic and dance routines with actual pole shoes that will be part of your final performance. Thus, you need to choose carefully and to make sure that these shoes for pole dancing will boost your act positively and not ruin it.
When you go shopping for pole shoes, you must know what to look for in order to eliminate certain styles and to really be able to come up with the best ones that are suitable for you.
Important Factors to Watch Out For When Shopping for Pole Shoes
These are the factors you have to take into account when picking out your shoes for pole dancing:
1. Comfort. It is important that you feel comfortable in your chosen pole shoes because they may get in the way of your climbs, spins, and other moves. Select a pair with manageable heels. If you are not used to very high ones, then do not attempt to buy the ten-inch shoes or even the six-inch ones. Four inches is probably safe, especially for starters. Once you purchase your shoes for pole dancing, be sure to practice wearing them even when you are going about your chores in the house. Also rehearse your pole dancing act wearing them many times!
2. Materials. Avoid metals that may scratch the pole or injure you, such as studs and buckles in the design of the shoes. Embellishments like hooks, studs, rhinestones, and laces may also cause harm. Also choose a pair with grippy type of materials like leather, vinyl, plastic, and latex. This way, you can be assured of doing away with slippage on the pole. Also look for those with a solid plastic base so the heel will not break off during the dance.
3. Style. It is best to keep your shoes for pole dancing simple so they will be safer and will not take away the attention from your actual dance. Also I would recommend to choose a style with an ankle strap so that the shoes will not fall off during the act. You may also want to opt for comfortable boots because they can protect your feet and will not fall of easily.
Have fun picking out your shoes or boots for pole dancing!
