I love the way these feel on my feet. I have used these since my first pair of pointe shoes and will continue to use them. Plus they are cheaper at Discount Dance than at my local dance store.

THANKFUL FOR THESE
As a professional dancer I was having serious problems with a toenail that was consistently bruised and a pressure pain that was sending sharp pains up the center of my toe (almost as if stepping on a needle). I didn't think I wanted to go back to gel based toe pads, and there was definitely some getting used to because there is a bit of movement as the gel shifts (especially the first few wears), but this has given me enough padding to do all that I need to do en pointe but without the pain. And the bruise is finally starting to heal as well (first time in almost 2 years). I love that these have no seam as I was starting to get abrasion injury from the seam on basic thin toepads such as Gaynor pink pads.

NOT AS ADVERTISED, VERY THICK!
You know, I wouldn't necessarily rate these as bad if they weren't advertised as ultra thin. These toe pads are much thicker than the Pointe Pockets by Gaynor Minder. I mostly wear lambswool, but I have some shoes wear I need a bit more padding, the fit isn't as snug, and I wanted to explore very thin gel toe pads. This is not it. It's been a long time since I've worn ouch pouches, so I don't have them to compare, but these can't be thinner, and if it's not thinner than an ouch pouch (a very in the middle of the road level of padding), than I don't see how they can call themselves ultra thin.
I received mine in white, which was nice. The purple was my first choice, but you can't go wrong with plain white. When I tried them on sock side in, I felt a lot of sliding and springiness in my shoe. I felt very unstable. When I flipped them over, it was better. My toes sunk into the gel, that's how thick this pad is! So if you're buying them thinking you won't have the sweaty gel up against your feet, that might not be the case. IMO it's like they took the fabric side off of a thicker toe pad, and then used that as the deciding factor in it being ultra thin. It's unbelievable really.
