We noticed watching dance moms that some dances the looked like they has a very thin ballet shoe.

Then we competed this weekend and noticed a few soloist had them on. Two different types, toes sticking out and toes covered. What kind of shoes are they?

I am trying to find out what these are. They have to be more sanitary than dancing barefoot.

Is this what you're talking about: http://www.dancewearsolutions.com/dws/Lyrical-Turner

They're turners or foot thongs. [smile]

No, we are familiar with the paws and Turner half soles. The ones they were wearing looked more sheer.

Why wouldn't you just go barefoot?

Calluses take a while to build up and there is also the confidence. They also have to be built up correctly so they won't tear on stage. Also, it's easier to turn with some type of sole.

As for the link, I think those are what they looked like. They make a similar shoe called shocks. I purchased the shocks but the ones that actually look like socks.

My DD has tried the MDM ones - I bought her two pairs ( one to not use until comp/ recital if needed) because they were on special for about $9 ( Australian dollars) a pair. Usual price was quoted as  $60. She says they're okay and will probably use them for recital but prefers some white slip-on flexible cloth shoes for contemporary classes - she takes them off and on instead of the socks that most of the other girls slip on. I can't remember the brand for them, they were something on special that I threw in to an order to get to free postage level.

Capezio makes a mesh half sole. They are about $10. Maybe those?
