Walking in the Stripper Shoe

OK. Here is how it is mastered......PRACTICE!! :)
Yes, it takes time, and hard practice. But if you really want to master it, you just have to keep walking in them. It all comes down to repetition and balance.
First, you need to make sure the shoe fits. Then try just wearing one shoe. I know it will be weird, but just wear it around... step, step up, step, step up. Then switch feet. This will help you familiarize yourself with how your foot moves around in the shoe.
Then throw them both on. Wear them in 20 minute increments...like while doing household chores...the boyfriend/hubby will love it. And it seems to be much easier to do dishes in 6 inch stripper heels. :)
Try to stay on hard even surfaces, pile carpet is death to the sexy walk. You can always start with a wedge or chunky heel first http://snaz75.com/ts-806.html or http://snaz75.com/pl-nuwave-509.html. I personally think they are ugly as hell and I think most dancers do too because the style came and went pretty quickly. A stiletto heel will always make your legs look better too. But you can also try a wedge, some wedges are pretty hot. http://snaz75.com/el-w-manhattan.html http://snaz75.com/pl-beau-609.html http://snaz75.com/ts-601.html (my fave).
As always the more the ankle is supported, the better you feel when you do fall, so don't ever do slip-ons unless you can walk in the regular stripper shoes first.
Also try walking up and down stairs, USIGN THE HAND RAIL!, for more practice.
When you first start walking, look down at your feet, then as you become better try not looking down until you can get the hang of it. Then try walking a bit faster in them. Also try strengthening the ankle as well http://physicaltherapy.about.com/od/orthopedicsandpt/ss/anklerehab_4.htm
And just know, I've been wearing these heels every other day for over 10 yrs and I still take a little stumble every once and a while.
Good luck!!!

Stretching the Stripper Shoe.


It seems that a lot of women have trouble with the shoe and the fit. They have trouble with the part that goes across of the top of the toes being too tight. This can be a problem. In the club the girls had a neat trick. They would take a hair dryer to the plastic part to heat it, thus making it more pliable, then slip a socked foot inside (the sock prevented the skin from burning) to stretch out the shoe. They would wear it for 15 or so minutes while the shoe cooled and then repeat if necessary.
I recently had a client who had a problem where this part was too big. If it stretches too much that is where the payless shoe pads come in handy, but make sure you super glue them in or they will move around too much. These Tip Toes are a bit more pricey than payless but, same concept.
It seems that someone needs to come in and make these shoes a bit more comfortable, but in the meantime just shop around until you find one that fits. Try them on in the local store and find a brand you like and then order them online to save money.
Good luck ladies!

The Perfect Stripper High Heel Shoe!



People always ask me,"Which shoe do I buy for class?"

I like Ellie's shoes. Pleaser's is good too and so is N.Y.L.A.( but I can't seem to find them anymore). If you ever plan on doing any floor moves you need a platform. It protects the toes and helps you get down and up. The 6" Juliet by Ellie is perfect! (the Juliet is available is all inch varieties)

If you never wear heels start with a 4" with a bit of a platform. The Brooke is a good one. Ankle support and a wide toe strap is key. If you have ankle worries, boots are fun and give great support. I always loved boots.

If you can hang in heels, but are afraid of 6 inches go with 5". Like the Jewel ...pretty but functional.

If you are ready to get down on the floor you need 5 1/2" or more. The Allure is great. Again, boots really give great protection to the toes and are smokin' hot. When I danced I wore boots like the Covergirl practically every night. Good for pole climbing too.

Then you can graduate to the 6" Once you can manage those, it's on to skinny toe straps, mules (my fave) and others...the options are endless.

And then... if you're crazy, there are 7" and 8". I have tried and I always go back to 6" Sometimes bigger isn't always better. ;)

OLD NEWSLETTERS: June 2007 Update: Confidence,Summertime, Strip Club Trip, Perfect Stripper Shoe


June Update 05-24-07

Well, summer is right around the corner! And that means... more skin! Yeah! I love seein' the boys in the tanks and shorts. Yum! Boys, boys, boys! I get asked about boys and what they like all the time. I suppose women think since I was a stripper for so long that I am expert on what men like. And I suppose in a sense we had to be experts to make money. There are a few things they all like, but truthfully, they all like something different. If you are really trying to figure out what boys like, dig deeper and figure out what YOU like. Confidence radiates and man, men love that. That is the great thing about our classes, they help you feel confident in your skin. And that sexy routine won't hurt either!
But don't forget, the basics of body care are necessary too. You know, the best you in the nude. Get naked in the mirror and take along hard look. What can you fix or spiffy up(withOUT surgery)? Get that mani/pedi. Use that self tanner. GET TO THE GYM (or a Stripper Strength class)! Drink lots of water. Trim the tulips and shave your legs. Use lotion to keep skin nice and soft. Wear a little lip gloss and mascara. And start appreciating your body for what it is. If you can't, then how do you expect him to?
xoxoxo

How to wear those crazy "stripper" heels...and not fall down!
Okay, so you don't wanna wear the stripper heels because you never wear them....or they hurt, or they are too high...well it IS a learned thing. If you are going to wear "stripper" heels, I suggest 6 inch open toe (lets tootsies not get so smushed) platform heels (pumps are a whole other animal) with ankle support. That means that a strap wraps around your ankle. And make sure the toe strap is fairly thick too. Boots are great as well. And they give the ankle lots of support. They are a bit pricier, but safer for those worried about falling. Just know, even the seasoned professionals trip up every once and a while. All you have to do is make sure you can play it off ...like no big deal.
Wear them in 20 minute increments until you start to feel comfortable, then in 40 minute increments. Keep this up until you can wear them for an hour and not fall. Wear them while you do household chores or while cooking. Your partner will be pleased, that is for sure! Then try squatting and moving around....movements besides just walking. Once you can wear them and not fall, try walking faster and faster until you can do a light jog in them from one end of the house to the other. Then you will have mastered the shoes!
When you wear them, point your toes at every opportunity. POINT POINT POINT!!! If you aren't putting weight into the foot then the toes should be pointed. Even when you are standing and especially when you are doing floor moves. Even in boots! The act of pointing will engage the muscles in your leg and instantly give you better lines, so please point. If you find your foot cramping, and it will, just realize that the more you point, the more that little foot muscle gets used to it. So try to "work out" your feet more. Ex: Without shoes, point, and then flex. Repeat 50 x's. Then try "drawing" the alphabet with your pointed toes.
And as far as options, you have a lot.
BUT:
Be able to walk in 6 inches before you move to 8 inches. Please. If the cushion of the shoe is black, the ink will most likely bleed onto your toes, if your feet sweat at all. The sole of the shoe should be rubber, or you will slip around. And if you wear boots, wear thick socks too. If you find your foot slipping through the shoe, you can find cheap shoe pads at payless shoe source and super glue them into the base of the shoe. If you don't glue them in, they will slip around when you point your toe.
And NO, in reality, they aren't like walking on little pillows, but if you wear them and put on a good show, what he does to you afterwards should feel pretty damn close :)
Good Luck!
-Kimberly

One more note on shoes and feet...


There is one thing that drives me crazy ...when girls don't point their toes. ALWAYS POINT YOUR TOES!!!!!!!!!!! ALWAYS!!!!!!!!


If you aren't putting weight into the foot then the toes should be pointed ..even when you are standing and especially when you are doing floor moves . Even in boots. The act of pointing will engage the muscles in your leg and instantly give you better lines...so please point.

If your foot starts to cramp..and it will, just realize the more you point the more that little foot muscle gets used to it.


Try flexing and pointing 50 times on each foot.

Then your shoes might start to stretch out. Just by those Payless SS pads I talked about.

Good luck!

More about the heels you strip in


When you wear them, still point your toes at every opportunity. POINT POINT POINT!!!

And as far as options, you have a lot.
BUT:
Be able to walk in 6 inches before you move to 8 inches. Please. If the cushion of the shoe is black, it will most likely bleed onto your toes, if your feet sweat at all. The sole of the shoe should be rubber, or you will slip around. And if you wear boots, wear thick socks too.

If you find your foot cramping from pointing, try to "work out" your feet more. ex: without shoes, point, and then flex and repeat 50 x's. Then try "drawing" the alphabet with your pointed toes.

If you find your foot slipping through the shoe, you can find cheap shoe pads at payless shoe source and super glue them into the base of the shoe. If you don't glue them in, they will slip around when you point your toe.

Heels or no heels when you perform a striptease?




Heels or no heels?


Dammit, wear the heels. In all of my StripXpertease classes I recommend that ladies wear them.

Unless you have a guy who is wildly turned on by bare feet. Keep them on ...and for god's sake practice in them. If you are going to wear "stripper" heels, I suggest 6 inch open toe (lets toes not get so mushed) platform (pumps are a whole other animal) heels with ankle support. That means the strap wraps around your ankle. And make sure the toe strap is fairly thick too. Boots are great too and they give the ankle lots of support. A bit pricier, but safer for those worried about falling. Just know, even the seasoned professionals trip up every once and a while. Just make sure you can play it off ...like no big deal.

Good luck!!
