How To: Tie pointe shoes properly

Tie pointe shoes properly

This video demonstrates how to properly tie ballet shoes before doing ballet. First, in addition to the ballet shoes, some paper towels will be needed for padding. Fold about three paper towels together until they form a rectangle approximately 3" by 4". This will be used to pad the toes. Now, pulling the show onto the foot, pull the strap over the top of the foot and place the folded paper towels around the toes and top of foot to pad. Pull the shoe snugly onto the foot. The side straps should then be brought up one at a time, starting with the inside strap, and criss-crossed over the ankles. Tuck the straps underneath each other on the back of the heal to create a smooth appearance. Repeat this process on the other foot.
