I prefer my toepads to be thin enough that I can still feel the floor and the inside of my shoe. Many, MANY people feel they need a thick toepad to stop all of their pain and this just isn't true. As long as you have a proper fitting shoe you should be fine. Anyways perfect balance between thick and thin, DO NOT WASH, the foam may start to shred or peel a little here and there usually after a few months they need to be thrown away. I keep two pairs that a switch on and off so they have enough time to air out.
I've been searching for a replacement for the fantastic Capezio Tipseez toe pads that haven't been produced for awhile and thought I might finally have of found them. Unfortunately I was mistaken to think these Pillows were it. On first use they seemed like they might actually have been the replacement I was looking for but unfortunately after the second use they began to disintegrate. The foam is not of a good quality, crumbling easily with use. It's unfortunate that someone has not come up with a product that comes up to or rivals the Capezio Tipseez. I'm still searching!
I love em! I recently started pointe and these pads really helped! I had no bunions or blisters! i dont know what people are talking about the pads being too foamy. Maybe since Im just starting I need more padding than others! I love these!
DO NOT GET THESE! These are the worst toepads that I have ever had! I ordered them right before a show and they seemed to be soft, but when I used them, I got blisters all over! I could have done way better in the show if I did not use those toepads. I would never recommend these.
I bought this recently and opened it today. Let me tell you, it was the WORST thing I have ever encountered. The foam felt nice on the inside but it was way too hard and stiff. And the worst part was that it didn't even fit around my toes! I'm an adult small but maybe I should have ordered a large...
