    GREAT CUSHIONING!

    i use these in lieu of the gel cushions that come with by blochs. the bloch cushions are pretty hard compare to these. these are squishy and and so comfortable! i have greek shaped feet so my second toe is slightly longer than my big toe. i wear them with bloch's version of the ouch pouch junior and together they provide great cushioning.

    TINY BUT MIGHTY

    They are thinner than I expected...therefore I stack the two gel pads - the smaller on the bottom and the larger on top. If they move, putting a thin layer of sheepskin helps.

    TOTAL GAME CHANGER - SAVED MY SHOES AND MY TOES

    So, I had been swapping every padding known to the dance world in my GM's and nothing was working. My toes were in pain, and not the good kind. I figured the shoes were shot. These little pads arrived, and I was able to wear the shoes again. In the meantime, i purchased Grishko 2007's. I used these pads at the fitting, a little wool on top of my toes and a bit in between (i hate with they squish-touch each other), with the thin GM toe cover over-- this cover mostly holds it all in place as it is the thinnest toe pad out there. The same setup works in both shoes! yay! Anyway, this little pad is actually squishy. It is not the GM big toe pad which is hard like a rock. I do not notice the squish, other than my toes feel great! As far as size, they are not much different. I have the large in the GMs and the small in the 2007s. I have a narrow tapered foot, GM- 8N box 2. Grishko- 5.5 X. hope this helps.

    I only started point a couple months ago but the pain on my big toe was so intense i wasn't sure i was gonna be able to continue but these little guys saved the day. I'm not gonna pretend going up on point doesn't hurt a bit. Dancing is painful in many aspects, but these make it bearable pain so i can at least continue my dancing. I cant really speak for their durability yet as i have only had them for about three weeks but i have class twice a week and I go up at least once a day and these babies are good as new so I'm optimistic that they will last.

    DON'T LAST LONG BUT HELP SO MUCH!

    So I needed something to relieve the pain on my big toes and I saw these at my local dance store and got them to try them out. I put them on the top of my big toe and can I just say WOW these are amazing I did not think they would work this good. The main problem I have is that they don't last long since I am in them so long and putting basically all your weight on them it like cut through the gel if that makes sense. It still works fine but they last for about 2 maybe 3 months each buy. I will DEFINITELY be getting these again though. Pro's: ~ Relieve SOOO much pain. ~ Comes with 2 sets ( 4 gel total ) Con's: ~ Don't last long. ~ Adhesive doesn't work to well after a while. - DancingFever

    RELIEF IS FINALLY HERE! <3

    I absolutely LOVE these things, if you're suffering from your big toes hurting while dancing long periods of time on pointe, these are for you! It's almost like dancing on marshmallows! It relieved the pain in my big toe and its joints and I was able to dance better and for longer periods of time. THESE ARE JUST PLAIN AMAZING.

    COMFORTABLE AND DOESN'T TAKE UP MUCH SPACE

    I got these after not having much luck with toe pads and i was looking for something comfortable that doesnt take up much space. I thought these were very useful if you need something to relieve pressure under your big toe.

    SIMPLY BEYOND MY WILDEST DREAMS

    I ordered these mini pointe shoe pads in an attempt to try out new toe pads in my pointe shoes. I've been on pointe for exactly one month now and tried out three different toe pads. These are my favorite. While they are small, smaller than I would have guessed, they make me feel as though I am suspended in the air, but I can feel the floor better than ever before! Paired with my Jelly Tips on my big toes, I feel invincible with these miracle toe pads!

    PERFECT LITTLE TOE PILLOWS

    These are great! I expected them to be a tougher rubber dot, but I was pleasantly surprised when they turned out to be squishy. These are not for someone who wants intense toe relief, but more for someone who's big toe is just getting a touch too much pressure. These will not take up a lot of room in your shoe, or make you feel like you have lost space between your foot and the floor. I give them a 5 out of 5.

    JUST ENOUGH

    I stuff these in the toe of my box and with the Pillows for Pointe Lambs Wool Pillows. (They are a pain to get in and the "adhesive" is a joke# My big toe is slightly longer than my other toes and this helps even out the pressure. These are softer than the Pillows for Pointe Gel Point Shoe Cushions and wear down a lot faster. After about 6 hours of wear, the pads are already conforming to my toes. They last about as long as my Pillows for Pointe Lambs Wool Pillows. The level of plushness wears away quickly, but I prefer a minimal cushion. For my almost peasant feet, it's just enough to take the pain away from the tip of my big toe. I am buying more. #If you're looking for durability, then go for the Pillows for Pointe Gel Point Shoe Cushions instead, but know that they are just as annoying to get in place and even more annoying to trim, but are great once you get them in cut to the right size#

    DON'T WORK TO WELL

    I have use this in my russian points for months and they work goodish. They don't stick!! You have to tape them down or glue them. After I'm en point for like 2 seconds it slides out of place! They don't even fit in the box of my shoe! Very disappointed , but its still worth getting. I also tried lambs wool. Worked much much better. So ya wasn't really impressed.

    I DO NOT LIKE THESE AT ALL.

    I tried these my first year on pointe because my toe savers elite were giving me problems. These moved around because the adhesive did not work. I even tried putting these under tights and it still not help but it was better than just my toe savers elite. Overall I do not like these toe pads.

    I LOVE THEM!!

    I bought this about 6 months ago... But I lost my little purple ones... (I love purple) And I thought I should but more in case I lost the pink ones... The sticky part DOESN'T WORK!! And I have big toes so It is not confortable on my pointe shoe... What I do is that I put it in my big toe and paste them with toe tape, they make my ig toe look enourmous, But they are worth it. My nails don't fall anymore. And I have really bad problems with feeling the floor, With them on I don't feel it at all. All of my classmates complain I put so much stuff on my foot (I only put the toe savers on my big toe, secure it with toe tape so they don't move and put my toe pads... IS NOT MUCH) so one day I try only putting my toe bunhead toe pads... I felt my nails were going to fall of (I cut them really short) So I love them... I do recoment this... And with the colors... the new toe savers I bought didn't broght purple... the have pink and blue.... :( I don't like blue that much and purple is my fave color, too bad. I like feeling like a princess even if nobody cares what color it is xD!!

    THEY REALLY SAVE YOUR TOES!

    I love these. I have Russian Points Hard, and it really hurts to go up on point. So my teacher told me about them. The one thing I don't really like about them is that the sticky stuff is not really helpful. You need to tap them down. Also sometimes they move around. I highly recommend these. They really save your toes!

    VERY HELPFULL!!

    These helped me so much!!! I had a big blister and I couldn't dance on pointe without it hurting so I decided to buy these to see if they would help the pain. They worked pretty good. Sometimes I put them in my tights under my toe pad or I put them on top of my tights and toe pad. Also, they aren't really thick that I can't put my shoe on. Overall they were a pretty good buy!

    Well they do work well but I have very wide feet. I take a width of E or xxxx. They don't quite fit at the bottom of my shoe. They are like the same size too. I couldn't tell them apart if they weren't different colors.

    PRETTY GOOD

    The glue on the gel pad does not stick very well to the bottom of your shoe. I used a piece of tape and stuck it inside my shoe, and taped it on. Now they stay in place when I do point. Besides that, they definitely work great.

    HELPFUL

    These help a lot when you find the perfect pair of pointes, and yet you're still feeling pressure even when you're wearing a pouch with them. They're extremely small yet get the job done perfectly.

    MY POINTE SHOE HERO!

    These are absolutely amazing! I use them on my big toe for more comfort in my pointe shoe. They are a little thin, so I stuck two of them together, using the two adhesive sides. I also discovered a little trick for keeping them in place. I turn my Ouch Pouch pad inside out and place the Toesavers on my toe. Then I put the tip of the Pouch on my toe and the Toesavers, and fold it over my foot. This trick really secures them in place, and it's so easy to do after a few tries. Thanks for making these!

    GOOD FOR BUNIONS

    I don't use these in a traditional way, so no sticking problems for me. I found they work very well if you have bunions. I use a toe separator between the big and second toe, then use this on the outside of my foot right between the knuckles of my big toe. It takes a lot of the pressure off the bunion knuckle, so I actually rely on it for comfort. It doesn't slip since it fits neatly in my toe pad.

    The way to get these to stick is to wrap them in a thin layer of tissue. They stay in the tip and the tissue keeps them in good shape. Forget the glue. Rip a strip of tissue off and wrap it around the gel.

    WORSE THAN I EXPECTED

    When I saw these, I thought they seemed very useful for my toes (my second toe is longer than my big toe). But when I used these, the stick-on would not work well. So I ended up sticking them in my toe pads because there was no other way to use them. Not bad but could be bigger and better.

    Are these used as toe separators?

    I do not use them as toe seperators, but I suppose you could trim them to use them that way. I stuff them in the toe of my box then use lambs wool or gel pouch in addition. - Dancerengineer (03/04/2013)

    You can use them pretty much anywhere you have pain. You can use them as toe separators thats what I do most of the time. - Ballerina125 (02/27/2014)

    No, they are not necessarily toe separators but more of toe pads - anywhere you need them. A problem area for many dancers are their big toes (where most of the weight is placed on pointe) so you can put these under the tip of your big toe to absorb some of the pressure and the shock. You can also use them to cushion your feet against the toe box itself - like if the top of your big toe joint tends to rub on the box and get blisters, you can place one there and it will protect your skin. I have personally tried these and they are extraordinary! - Maxride98 (02/18/2015)
