Foot Tracing

Tips for creating an accurate foot tracing:

  • You will need a pen (not thick tip), paper, measuring tape and a hard surface.
  • Have someone trace your foot while you stand up if possible, as this while give you a more accurate shape.
  • Keep the pen vertical at all times when tracing your foot. The aim is not to draw around the part of the foot, which touches the paper, but to convey the accurate size of your foot.
  • Draw around your foot with the socks you plan on dancing in.
  • Do not draw between your toes.

  • Draw a line from the tip of the big toe to the heel and measure it.
  • Do this for both feet.
  • If different...
