To begin with - the small cords at the top of your shoes are to adjust width. Placing the foot firmly on the Floor, pull the cords inwards, secure, knot and tuck into the shoe so they won’t show.

Care: to keep shoes fresh, air them after use by hanging them by ribbons from a door handle or hook.

Do not leave them wrapped in a damp towel or leotard.

Do not dry damp shoes in the oven as this does irreparable damage to the glue.
