FAQ: Questions Frequently Asked by those New To Pole Fitness and Dancing

Here are all those helpful hints and tips we promised.

Best Brand for Newbies?

In our opinion the best brand for anyone to buy are PLeaser. They are the industries favourites although Hella Heel might be good for anyone in the UK / Australia due to shipping costs.

What heel Height Should I Buy?

The Most Popular Heel Height of Shoes bought for pole dancing are 6 Inch Heels or 7 Inch Heels Whilst that might sound a bit scary at first, it isn't really. The incline isn't so bad when you consider that there is a platform under the sole at the front of the shoes, making the heel height minimal really. You might normally dislike a 4 inch heel, but that's because their is no platform under the sole. Once you are confident in the 6inch you'll be investing in some 7, 8 or even 9 inch heels.

What should the Sole be Made From

If your spinning around a pole and you don;t want to end up on your bum (unintentionally) it's probably wise to look out for a pair of platform heels with a rubberised sole for grip and stability.

Sandals or Boots?

That's a tough one, why not buy both? Strappy sandals make your legs look long and you can reveal your pointed toes highlighting your lovely dancer lines. But if you want to add ankle support and get some grip from your footwear then boots are the way to go. They will protect your toes and they look super hot with a pair of shorts. This has to be a personal choice but maybe get both?

Do I need to Buy Platform Shoes?

No you can waer bare feet, but sexy high heels with a platform help your dancing in so many ways. Firstly they look hot!, But they also help you build strength (the extra weight on your feet when walking and inverting will do wonders for your strength). Flexibility, balance and strength will all be helped by doning a pair of sexy platform shoes.

The platform makes them easy to walk in and you can think of them as super sexy ankle weights. Plus they will make you look hot with legs that go on for miles and miles.
