Shoes FAQs

Can I return shoes for a different size?

Yes, we accept returns. You may return your items for store credit which can be used for anything on our site. As long as the shoes have not been worn around/outside we will take them back. If shoes have been worn they are no longer sanitary for resale.

How do I break in my shoes?

We recommend heating up the plastic for a few seconds with a blow dryer. This will help soften the plastic and will help your foot slide in more comfortably. Please keep in mind when the plastic is brand new it will feel tight at first. We strongly recommend wearing your shoes a minimum of 1 hour a day starting 8 weeks out from your show. The more you wear them the more they will begin to break in. Some athletes prefer to wear socks with them to help stretch the plastic. You want a snug fit for stage.

My shoes are too small, What can I do?

It sounds surprising but your feet will shrink as you lean out. We want to make sure your shoes fit well on stage. Not too tight but not too loose. We recommend getting shoes no earlier than 8 weeks out. If you feel your stage heels are too small we will happily exchange them a bigger size as long as they have not been worn. Below is an example of how your shoe should fit.

Do you carry wide heels?

Yes we have a few styles that have a wider foot bed. These styles are Becca, Bonnie and Breanne, Suneetaand Jenn.

What’s the best style for narrow feet?

We recommend the Ella or the Sophie.

What size of heels do most competitors wear?

Generally most competitors wear a 5″ heel. However we want you to feel comfortable in your shoes on stage. If you’d prefer to wear a smaller heel we can help you find the perfect one.

How do know if my shoes are too small?

If your heel is hanging off the back, then your shoes are too small.

I’m a first time competitor, what shoes do you recommend?

We want you to feel comfortable in your stage heels. It all depends on your personal style and preference. We advise our clients to choose a shoe you really love.

Will my federation allow your heels?

It is your responsibility to check your federations guidelines for heels. We are not responsible if your shoes do not pass inspection due to you not knowing the federations rules.

I’m a half size, should I go up or down?

We recommend doing a size down. Your feet will shrink as you lean out and we want to make sure your shoes fit come show day.

Are you available for shoe fittings in person?

Yes. Our home store is located in Edmonton. We do book appointments for personal shoe fittings across Alberta. Please contact us to arrange for your own shoe fittings to ensure we find the perfect pair of heels for you.

I am tall, do you recommend wearing a 5" heel?

The standard across most federations is a 5″ heel. However, if you are tall and feel a 4″ heel would work better for you that is ok too. We want you to feel confident and comfortable on stage. You will be competing against girls in your height class.

What if a stone comes loose on my shoes?

Any of our shoes with stones come with a small bag of replacement stones in the shoe box. To replace simply hold your stone with a pair of tweezers and heat the back of the stone up with a lighter. You can reapply the stone.

This is my first show, what else do I need?

suit, shoes, jewelry, robe, suit glue, glaze, tanning services/product, hair services/product, makeup services/product.

How long will my order take to receive?

1-2 weeks unless you request rush shipping. Extra charges apply.

Is it better to wear shoes with bling or plain heels?

It’s a good idea to pick a shoe you love. Either is great on stage but the most important thing is to feel confident in your shoes.

Do you have anything to make my shoes a half size smaller?

Yes we do have foot pads that can be inserted into the shoe.

Do you have detachable straps?

Yes we do have detachable straps that will work with most of our shoes.

Do you recommend a shoe with a built in strap or are detachable straps a better choice?

They both have their benefits. A built-in strap is comfortable and definitely provides more stability. But if the strap on your shoe breaks you have to replace the whole heel. If you get detachable straps, and the strap brakes you’re only replacing the strap.

How long do appointments take?

Most of our appointments are about an hour. A lot of competitors will ask specific questions about show day and what they can expect. We try to help athletes as much as we can. However we do not discuss diet or training out of respect for your coach.

What if I don’t live in Alberta?

We do offer shipping on our website. However if you happen to order the wrong shoes you will be responsible for paying shipping cost back to us.

Suit FAQs

What if I can’t decide on the color I want for my suit?

Jewel tones look best on stage. We recommend picking a color you really love. Your suit maker can help you pick the right stones and connectors to help create a suit that you love.

What can I use to remove my tan?
