Best for Australians
LUNA SOLE SAVIOURS by the HausOfHeel
These double layered, scuba knit Pole Protectors are made to save your sole and prevent scuffing to your Pleasers. Made in Australia by (wo)men. They are one size fits MOST, generally being a best fit for a size 6 – 10 (AU/US Sizing).The shine on these gorgeous blue shimmer iridescent protectors is amazing.
What are they?
Quite simply they are small pieces of material, often made from quality Lycra fabric designed to protect the platform area of the shoe from scratches and scrapes.
Most designs are simply a fabric tube that goes onto the platform of the shoe. The sole is left open, so the grip is still there. They help to keep your shoes looking pretty for longer. The amazing thing is that they are available in a range of colours and designs to match the rest of your outfit.
If you don;t want to shell out on a pair, you can wear socks, but then you lose the grip of the platform sole.
When buying just make sure that they are big enough to fit the height of your platform. It doesn’t matter if they are too deep as you can fold them over.
Why Use Them?
Well, it’s very easy for our beautiful exotic platform shoes to take a bit of battering when they are used for practice. And lets face it they don’t cost pennies. They are quite an investment so we don’t want to shell out for them just to get battered and bruised when we slam them down on the floor, scrape them when we drag walk them around the pole etc etc. There is only so much glittery nail varnish and Sharpie you can try and cover up the scrapes with.
Will the get Damaged?
Yep, it’s probably wise to order a few pairs at the same time as they are designed to take the damage instead of your shoes. They are going to get damaged during use, but better the protector than expensive precious pole shoes!
Where to Buy Them?
There are a number of online stores that you can buy these from. Etsy, Amazon and eBay. All for a pretty reasonable price. But if you don’t want to buy them, you could of course make your own diy shoe protectors.
Pole panties, platform shoe protectors, platform protector sox, exotic heel protectors, Pleaser shoe protectors are just a few of the names that these delightful shoe covers go by.
