Are you an avid collector of pole dancing shoes? There’s no such thing as too many pairs, right?! Sometimes, the temptation to buy that 9th pair of pleasers because they’re on sale is just too much. Well, instead of getting yet another pair, why not add something new to the pairs you already have in your closet? With these innovative new Boot Sleeves by BOOMKATS Pole Wear, you can turn any pair of pole shoes into sexy pole dancing boots!
Pole dancing boots are great, they look awesome and you get grip benefits with wearing them. They’re also very expensive and some people find them uncomfortable. It can be difficult to justify a purchase if you’re not sure how much use you’ll get from them.
Pole dancing boots are favored by lots of dancers, sometimes for style reasons, often for comfort, yet traditional pole shoes (a.k.a Pleasers) are still the preferred choice.
That’s what makes boot sleeves for pole dancing shoes so awesome, you can take them on and take them off your shoes as you please. So if you’re not quite committed enough or ready to try pole dancing boots just yet, these are for you!
Let’s find out more.
What are Boot Sleeves?
Boot sleeves for pole dancing shoes are made by BOOMKATS Pole Wear. In fact, you can wear them with any pair of shoes or even barefoot!
But, what exactly are they?
Boot Sleeves are essentially PVC leg-warmers that zip up and fasten beneath the shoe with an elasticated stirrup.
They also feature a lace-up detail on the outside, which conceals the zip on the inside of your leg.
Boot Sleeves are adjustable and help you grip the pole with your legs.
They’re also available in 4 different colors, and you can choose the color of the lace too!
Boot Sleeves and Leg Grip
Boot Sleeves are made from a sticky, latex-like fabric. They will help your legs stick to the pole.
This is especially useful for tricks such as
- Pole seat
- Knee hold
- Bird’s nest
- Brass monkey
- Inverted Crucifix
- Caterpillar Climb
- Regular Climb
- Any trick with the pole on spin
How they work with any shoe
As mentioned earlier in this article, you can wear boot sleeves with any pair of shoes or no shoes at all! You simply zip them up and place the stirrup beneath the arch of your foot. Then, put whatever pair of shoes on top of them. The zip and the elasticated stirrup will hold them in place.
Performing heel clacks are still possible, doing so does not damage the sleeves at all and wearing the sleeves certainly doesn’t affect your ability to clack those heels!
How do they compare to Pole Dancing Boots?
These are actually more comfortable than pole dancing boots since you have the choice to wear them with your preferred pair of shoes. You get the same effect wearing the boot sleeves as you do regular pole dancing boots.
Many pole dancers find boots quite restrictive. Also, most designs are ‘closed toe’ and many dancers prefer to wear a strappy style of pole shoe. With boot sleeves, you can!
Do they slide down?
No. The lace and zip hold them in place at the top while the stirrup does its job at the bottom. Once they’re on and you’ve adjusted the laces and the position of the stirrup, they have just the right amount of movement to allow you to move freely without the risk of them slipping down your calves!
Do they come in different sizes?
Yes. There are 3 sizes available based on measurements of your leg as opposed to your shoe size.
Please check BOOMKAT’s website for a size chart.
What’s the price?
€67 + €2 worldwide shipping. These are made in the EU but the €2 worldwide shipping is an awesome deal.
