Ballet Shoe Insoles: Choose the Style That is Right for You

Posted on May 22, 2015 by ryozwiak There have been 0 comments

The word ‘ballet’ is French, and the language of ballet is French: relevé, en-pointe, grand pliés. Lyrical language to go with lyric dance. Unfortunately, there is another language associated with ballet, Latin. As in: tendinitis, flexor hallucis tendinitis, anterior talofibular ligament. This what you’ll be hearing at the doctor’s office, which is why you should consider ballet shoe insoles before injuries occur.

Ballet Shoe Insoles: That Ounce of Prevention

If you wear ballet shoes for any reason (dance performance or just as a fashion statement), the key is prevention, a ‘cure’ can require weeks of enforced idleness, or even surgery. Ballet shoe insoles or more generally dance shoe insoles are a one to do this.  It is important to choose the right style of insole.   Ballet Shoe InsolesMany insoles sold for ‘regular’ street shoes are excessively rigid, and dance instructors frown on anything that interrupts the natural flow of foot motion.  The ballet shoe insoles from RxSorbo are made of a material that gently cradles the foot, and is very yielding.

Walking On Cardboard

Wearing ballet shoes has been likened to walking on cardboard–they give that little protection.  This may be fine on the beach, but on relatively unyielding surfaces your feet and ankles are taking a beating with each step, leap, and pirouette. Ballet shoe insoles are an inexpensive and readily available way to keep yourself healthy and at the barre, not on the sidelines.
