So Danca Pointe Shoe Covers - The answer to your pointe shoe cleaning woes

What are So Danca pointe shoe covers you ask? They are the answer to one of the dance communities great problems. How to keep a pair of pointe shoes spotless until show or exam day? In the past, we may have risked slipping by wearing socks over our pointe shoes. Many of us tried to whitewash our pointe shoes with calamine lotion. This chalky whiteness works in the short term. It elongates leg lines too. But what it also does is weaken the integrity of your pointe shoe. If you add water to paper it disintegrates and calamine lotion contains water and pointe shoes are made of paper! You do the math.

We need something that isn't wet, that will cover and protect the satin. This is where So Danca comes in. What they have created is a microfibre sock that covers the body of your pointe shoe.
