How to choose the correct sized heel protector?
Heel protector needs to have a snug fit around the heel otherwise it can disturb dancing or even slide off. Choose the correct sized heel protector. The base and top part measurements should be the same for heel size.
Height: 2 cm
Base measurements. Measurements from inside that equal heel size:
- 1.6 cm width
- 2 cm length
Top part measurements. Measurements from inside that equal heel size:
- 1.2 cm width
- 1.4 cm lenght
Flare 2.5” heel protectors fit a longer flared heel, such as on many Stephanie and Very Fine dance shoes. Fits the Ray Rose flared heels.

How to put on a heel protector?
The narrow tip of the heel protector is very difficult to push on. Therefore, we recommend the following methods:
- Try to stretch out the top part of the heel protector
- Breathe on the heel protector and then stretch the top part again
- Now try to slide the heel in the protector. Round side first!
Your breath helps the plastic to stretch and the moisture from your breath helps the plastic to slide.
If this method doesn’t work then the other way of getting the heel protector to slide on is to use a blowdryer. Blowdry the plastic for 30 sec to 1 minute and slide it immediately around the heel. In the heat the plastic stretches which makes it easy to slide on the heel. When the heel protector cools down it has a snug fit around the heel.
