I love Capezio, don't get me wrong, but these ouchpouches just didn't work well for my feet! That being said, every shoe, and every foot is different. I tend to prefer the gel silicone pads, so perhaps it's just what I'm used to! I would recommend seeing if your local dance store has a pair that you could try on before purchasing vs just buying it online without testing it. Definitely not the worst I've ever tried, but just not the right fit for me. Still love Capezio though!
