When footUndeez were first revealed, they truly represented a shift in the evolution and construction of the lyrical sandal.

After all, remember these?

Or, how about these?

footUndeez implemented a less obtrusive, bare/natural look of the foot, while assisting in dancer’s need to turn and move on stage. The product started a trend that resulted in a fashionable/patterned line and a rhinestone line, as well as prompting several other brands to create their own interpretation of the shoe (Dance Paws, etc.). Dancers eagerly flocked to acquire footUndeez in cheetah print, camo print, and pink polka dot print (wasn’t there even a tattoo print?). They were fun, financially reasonable shoes that allowed dancers to express themselves in class and on the convention circuit.

But, the questions is, are footUndeez the best shoe choice for on-stage performance?

Are you using footUndeez on stage? Does the look enhance your dancer’s feet? Do you wear your footUndeez with or without tights (see our Tight-en It Up article for more on this topic)? Is there another shoe choice that might work better?

Or, do you prefer half-soles?
