So you’re ready for your first pair of Pole Dancing Shoes?!
Here are some helpful tips for picking out Pole Dancing Shoes
Pole Dancing shoes are a must for myself when I do a performance! They make your legs look extra long, perk up your tush and there are so many styles! Every pole enthusiast should own a pair of pole dancing shoes to unleash the sexy.
So what are pole dancing shoes?! They are Shoes for pole fitness that are made out of material which sticks to the pole and come with or without an ankle strap. They are a platform shoe with a high heel and the heel height ranges from small 3 inches to as big as 10 inches. There are also a range of platform heights available but this normally is at a ratio to the heel height which means that walking will be easy. Pole dancing shoes are also called, stripper shoes, sexy platform heels, and lap dancing shoes.
Height & Style
The most popular height for pole dancing heels are between 6-8 inches. They have a nice platform belly that is perfect for heel clacks and your foot isn’t as arched as shorter heels meaning they much so they are more comfortable.
While picking out your pole dancing shoes you want to make sure that they fit comfortably on your feet and don’t have any buckles, spikes or any sharp point that will scratch or hurt your legs and ruin the finish on the pole. The clear plastic straps are by far the most comfortable style by far. You can choose to have an ankle strap (Mary Jane) as well that will ensure your shoes won’t fly of your feet or budge while your performing pole fitness.
Will I be able to walk in high platform shoes?!
Everyone’s first concern when buying platform shoes is that they won’t be able to walk in 6 inch pole dancing shoes? Fear not it is way easier than it seems. Sexy high heeled shoes have a 1.5inch platform, which means this actually makes platform shoes with a 6inch heel only 3.5 inches high. The same as a normal pair of high heeled party shoes or less. The platform decreases the amount of heel of these sexy shoes and they also have thicker heels which make balancing in the shoes much easier. Good quality shoes like Pleaser shoes also tend to be padded so the shoes are much more comfortable than party shoes. If you’re not used to wearing high platform shoes it could be best to try a 6 inch heel as opposed to an 8 inch heel… at first.
