These gel spots by Bunheads are self-adhesive, all gel ovals that can be placed on the foot or shoe in any area that needs pressure or shock relief. Soft, supple gel allows full range of motion but won't flatten out like foam or felt.
These are so great. The balls of my feet are somewhat large, so my big toe is kind of awkwardly in my shoe. These help me feel the floor and add a nice bit of cushioning. They occasionally stick to my toes and come out but all you have to do is stick them back in! If you lose one they come in six pack unlike other gel stickers so you can just replace it!
I do enjoy these because they are very comfortable and help with those ouchy spots. My problem with them is they do not stay in place very long. They might make it through a class, but when the foot is removed from the shoe the spots typically come with. We have used toe tape and taped them inside and that does make them last significantly longer. They are comfortable and help quite a bit. I still would recommend them!
Yes, they make your pointe shoes much more comfortable, but they add so much bulk to the bottom of your shoe that its hard to control, and feel the ground. Also, they only stick for about two seconds and they are sort of big to put in your shoes.
This product is fantastic. It is hard to get through an entire class without them. My ballet friends are always asking if they could borrow them. The only thing that is not so perfect is that if you wear the adhesive side on your toe, it can rip through. Other than that it is a wounder product. I would recommend this to anyone who does pointe work.
These are absolutely wonderful. I currently have a cracked big toenail, and even wearing my shoes for more than 5 minutes was terribly painful. I put these in the very tips of my pointe shoes and they've helped so much! I don't feel any pressure on my toes, but they're not too bulky so that I can't move my toes or feel the floor. I recommend these to everyone having problems with pressure on their big toes.
