Dancing for many hours have taught me to bring trustable shoes!
If you have already read Rave Nutrition you will know of a section dedicated to thoughts around the topic.
Today I'll give you my personal recommendation:
Vibram Five Fingers
I am very much in touch with my balance point and I've found the perfect shoes to support that.
I know some of my friends prefer the Nike Free or other kinds of light weight sneaks.
I don’t own these types of main stream shoes, because my feet and ankles fall to the inside leaving too much pressure on my knees and hips.
Da da da daaaaaaaaaa: Vibram Five Fingers
Honestly I feel like I’m dancing bare feet when I'm wearing these! The sole is thick enough to protect me from glass and stones, and the shoe is soooo comfortable. I feel like a gymnast or a tribal dancer or..
really just myself in these!
Back in the days Vibram Five Fingers would come in all kinds of crazy color totally high lighting that you were wearing something unconventional. Now a days people need to look closely before they find something is different there.
They work for me.
I've never been rejected to any club wearing these. I've gotten some: "whoooa WHAT aaare you wearing" from other ravers, but always meant in a positive way I'm sure.
I most often wear black shoes when i go dancing. You never know what’s on the dance floor. Outside raves can have sand or dust coming in. But don’t think your new shoes are safe just because you’re inside: Confetti can also make a huge mess out of a light color shoe.
And black goes with everything, no?
The only minus, and there is one, is that they don’t protect you from other people’s weight in case someone steps on your toes. OUCH. So these requires a willingness to pay attention and run for your life in case somebody drunk and heavy comes your way. Is that why people wear Dr. Martin's anyway?
I recently got a pair sponsored by the site www.alun.dk/shop
So thrilled, because this is a brand I have loved for years and the shoes I got is in-cre-di-ble.
The site offers super quick shipping and very favorable prices. Right now they have a super sale going on.
