As a dancer, you put a lot of stress and pressure on your feet every time you slip on your ballet shoes and elegantly glide onto the dance floor. With all the hard work your feet do, it’s only fair that you go extra lengths to take care of them.
For example, foot massages and soaking your feet in warm water with Epsom salts can help relieve soreness from a long day’s work. Moisturizers and foot balms are also a necessity, as they penetrate the rough parts of your feet where you develop calluses and blisters. As essential as these remedies are, you sometimes need a bit of extra support to make sure you don’t injure yourself.
Here are 4 dance orthotics that can help keep your feet healthy on and off the stage.
Insoles for Dance Shoes
Slenderfit Orthotic Insoles for Heels
Ladies, this insole is all for you. It offers an ultra-slim, tapered profile that will fit in your dance shoes, as well as your everyday heels, boots, and sandals. The insole’s unique “S” shape shell cradles the heel and provides that arch support you’re looking for. We also added extra cushioning to this insole to provide increased comfort and support to the ball of your foot when you’re dancing and moving around.
Memory Foam Comfort Insoles
If you have sensitive feet or have a history of foot conditions from years of ballet practices and recitals, this is a great insole for you. With all the cushioning and support you could ask for, this insole has dual-layer cushioning and a plush memory foam layer that conforms to the shape of your foot for maximum support. You can also use these for your everyday shoes to give you pressure relief after you dance.
More Dance Orthotics
It’s time to put a little boost in your arch when on stage. Our arch boosters are self-adhesive dense latex foam pads that work alongside your orthotic insole. The arch boosters help prevent the flattening of your foot, and the cushion can be placed wherever you need it for more customized support.
IPK Ball of Foot Cushions
If your feet are plagued by calluses, our IPK Ball of Foot Cushions can help alleviate some of that pressure that you feel. These self-adhesive foam pads can be placed right under the ball of the foot or where needed for customized support and pain relief.
As a dancer, your feet are your most valuable assets.
