If you are new to bikini/figure competitions, you may be curious as to which shoe is best for stage. There are so many styles and many of them look similar.
This is the correct shoe! It is by the company “Ellie” and the shoe is Brook.
- Heel measures approximately 4.75″
- Platform measures approximately 0.75″
- Pig leather insole
- Heel measures approximately 5 inches, platform 0.75 inches
- Available in whole sizes only. Half size order upThis shoe fits true to size!! I love it. You will see most competitors wear this exact shoe.Where should I get it?
Amazon.com has this exact shoe for about $25.
You can do a google search for it, but you will get lots of different Brook/Brooke Styles and heel heights.
Be sure the specs are the same as above. This is not an expensive shoe.Benefits:
The base of this exact shoe is perfect. Your toes don’t dangle over the end. Some shoes that ‘look’ like it have a more narrow base.
It’s seriously comfortable the minute you put it on for the first time.
It’s easy to walk in. Seriously easy to walk in.
Confidence level.. sky high!
When should I order shoes?
Now. If you have decided to compete, don’t wait another minute. Order your shoes! Having your shoes makes it real. You need to practice walking too.
Do I have to ‘break them in’?
I didn’t have to at all. They are awesome. Fit’s like a dream from day 1 to stage. Even as I lost body fat, I just tightened the straps.
Shouldn’t I get a strapless shoe? Straps make my legs look fat?
My first coach told me that. That’s weird. I had strapless shoes and my toes fell out over the toe of the shoe. I like this better. You can get what you want unless your federation says differently.
UPDATE 2016 I have had 2 pairs of these in the last year. I practice a lot in my shoes so I blew them out. I’m not going to lie, I bought an extra pair with me to my last show. However, I jumped on Amazon and had them the next day.
I want shoes with crystals.
You can add your own if you like. I stoned my shoes in 2013.
I actually bought this pair from Amazon too.
I thought it would be good.
I actually did not wear these in 2015 but I did in 2016. They were great.
Funny story: A girl at a show I worked, had a broken strap on her shoes. She said it broke a few weeks before the show but she was too lazy to get a new pair. Her body was banging but she walked like she was hobbled. Her T walk was terrible. I can’t even!
I wish you much luck in your competition!!
Here’s a picture of my little TatuBaby. She has no opinion of shoes.
