Wearing a pair of sexy stilettos to pole dancing class can truly transform the way your body moves and feels as you learn the art of exotic dance, but exotic dance shoes can be really pricey. Most of us students of pole dancing are not making the buku bucks working at some Vegas gentleman’s club, so forking out a hundred plus dollars for a pair of exotic dancing shoes is not an option (especially in this economy). Fortunately, buying a pair of sexy shoes for pole dancing class doesn’t have to break your budget; in fact, you can find some great styles at Pierre Silber (there’s a link on my website:) through their online catalog for fairly reasonable prices.

If you’re buying shoes for the first time there are a few things to keep in mind: first, it’s best try on several pairs in person before you buy, as they all fit differently (Foot Worship in San Francisco is on Sutter Street, between Van Ness and Polk, and has a shoe selection that would make Carrie Bradshaw squeal with delight). Second, once you find some shoes that work for you, keep a record of the style and manufacturer so you can look them up in the future online and maybe get a better deal. When choosing shoes for pole dance class keep in mind that six-inch platforms are the standard and once you get use to them they’re the most comfortable. Shoes for pole dance class come in full sizes only (no ½ sizes) so size down if they seem too loose or you’re a ½ sizer. Try on different styles to find the right fit and make sure the shoes have a non-slip sole; really, this is the most important feature to look for. Stay away from the super strappy styles where your pinky toe hangs out a hole, and mules (shoes with no back strap) because they can fly off your foot during pole dancing spins and inversions (possibly clocking someone in the head, or poking their eye out!). Functionality is the key word when choosing a shoe for pole dancing class, save the crazy fetish styles for some “other” occasion.
