Hear what respected physicians and therapists have to say about the PerfectFit Pointe Shoe Inserts.
"I am so grateful for the PerfectFit Pointe Shoe Inserts! They are, by far, the best way to distribute pressure across the toes and metatarsals while on pointe, especially for the dancer who has a longer second toe. Being able to feel the force distribution more evenly on the tips of the first and second toes enables the dancer to weight bear on pointe in good alignment and reduces the risk of stress reactions and ankle sprains."
Robert Kopitzke, PT, Master Pilates Instructor, Neuromuscular Reprogrammer, President of Body Concepts, Inc.
"It has been my pleasure consulting with Kelly Schmutte over the past several years as she developed the PerfectFit Pointe Shoe Inserts. As a Physical Therapist specializing in working with dancers for the past 16 years, I was very excited when I saw what Kelly was creating. I’ve seen the kind of damage poorly fit pointe shoes can wreak and all the gizmos that dancers try to stuff into their shoes while attempting to correct the problems. The PerfectFit inserts can help prevent this damage and prevent injuries. In addition, I understand the potential of what the PerfectFit inserts can do to improve the control all dancers seek while on pointe. By distributing the pressure across all the toes, dancers receive more proprioceptive feedback regarding their foot position and are able to control that position more effectively. Two thumbs up!"
