These really help to take away the bad smell of my pointe shoes. I put them into my shoes after every class and I can tell that they dry them out very quickly. I called the seller to request a custom order and she was so sweet. She sent me pictures of some fabrics and made my order no problem. They are so cute, I love the color! She made and shipped them the same day I ordered! So I'm very happy, and I'm going to be getting another pair before I leave to my summer ballet intensive :)

About

How it all began....

I was teaching ballet at a local school and one of my students complained about her shoes. She was having to buy pairs more often than other students...the average life of a pointe shoe is about 14 hours of dancing hers was 7 hours. So why do pointe shoes last so little?? Moisture was the problem! The moisture (sweat) of the feet breakdown the box of the shoe. I came up with the idea of making DryPointe, silica filled nylon mesh placed inside the shoe after each use. The silica absorbs the moisture overnight making them ready for the next use. This made the shoes last triple the amount of the regular use. I also notice that not only took away the moisture but the smell and decided to make different sizes for different shoes. Now DryPointe is used in all kind of athletic shoes keeping them dry and free from bacteria growth, dry and healthy!!!
