CARING FOR YOUR SHOES

THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION IS BASED ON MANUFACTURER’S RECOMMENDATIONS AND IS TO BE CONSIDERED A GUIDELINE ONLY. NO ADDITIONAL WARRANTY IS OFFERED

A Dancer’s feet will sweat while dancing and this moisture goes into the leather of the dance shoes. Shoes need to be allowed to air dry before being put away. This cycle of wet/dry/wet is hard on the leather and can cause deterioration. Using a quality shoe cream will keep your shoes soft and supple. Apply once a week and after competition once the shoes are dry.

Dancing is also hard on the stitching , especially so on carpet. To help maintain the stitching use beeswax , rubbing it into the stitching where it comes in contact with the floor, weekly and after competition. Please note it is not recommended to dance on carpet with soft shoes due to the abrasiveness.

If the sole of a soft shoe comes away (because of normal wear or it can be caught on the edge of the floor) it can be reattached  using a contact adhesive for leather  (do not use superglue) . Applying adhesive to both surfaces , allow to dry until slightly tacky then press sides together. Follow instructions on the adhesive.

The normal time a soft shoe lasts for a competitive dancer depends on how often  and on what surface they dance. It is normal to be replacing soft shoes every three to four months . one way to extend the life of a soft shoe is to have two pairs and alternate wearing them.
