Regular cleaning is essential. Suede soles should be brushed with a suede brush, while leather shoes can be wiped with a damp cloth. Yami dance shoes provide cleaning kits that are perfect for maintaining your dance shoes. I remember the first time I cleaned my suede soles; the difference in grip and performance was immediately noticeable.

Store your shoes in a breathable bag to prevent moisture buildup. Avoid leaving them in hot or damp places. Dance Shoes Online offers stylish and functional shoe bags that protect your investment. My go-to storage solution has always been breathable bags that keep my shoes fresh and ready for the next performance.

Anna's Tip

Anna, a dance instructor, suggests rotating between multiple pairs of dance shoes to allow each pair to air out and maintain their shape. "I always have a backup pair to ensure my shoes stay in good condition," she advises.

Jake's Advice

Jake, a competitive dancer, recommends using shoe trees to maintain the shape of your leather dance shoes. "It’s a small investment that makes a big difference," he says.


Taking care of your dance shoes ensures they last longer and perform better. Regular maintenance and proper storage are key to keeping your shoes in excellent condition. Every pair of shoes I’ve cared for has continued to support my dance journey. Learn more about maintaining your dance shoes with tips from Yami Shoes.
