I want to talk about shoes today. I mean, is there a more universally popular topic than shoes? Well, maybe, but shoes are definitely up there. I am a loyal shoe person. I find shoes I like and I stick with them. Recently, I’ve translated this loyalty into my studio shoes. When I teach barre or pilates I usually either go barefoot or wear sticky socks with grips on the bottom. I’ve tried wearing my old ballet slippers but found that they were actually way too slippery for the intense movements in barre and pilates that require a lot of grip with your feet.
