ABOUT DANCEWEAR

Maintaining your Pointe Shoes

Drying and Re-hardening

After wearing, remove all padding from the box of the shoe and stuff in a plastic bag filled with paper towels or some newspapers to prevent them from losing shape as they dry. Pointe shoes usually need about 36 hours to dry fully.

To stiffen the shoes, use a brush to apply Fabulon® or other brands of shellacs and glues to desired areas. The shoe should be good for the next 1 to 3 years. Use more than one pair of pointe shoes at a time to prolong the wear.

Other Useful Facts

The lighter you are, the more likely that leather shoes will slide easily on floors.

Feet and toe nails should be kept smooth to maintain the shoes’ cloth lining. Uneven stress on the footwear can cause tear in shoes.
