An important consideration for any burlesque performer is whether or not to wear shoes for a set performance and if so – the style, heel height and fastening(s) must be suitable when coordinating the whole outfit. Of course the shoes must also be easy to remove and should not feature too many complicated straps or buckles.
We all know that stiletto heels flatter the posture, lengthen the leg and are the platform of the all important strut of the burlesque performer. A dramatic pair of heels can add an instant boost of sex appeal and simply kicking a pair of exotic burlesque shoes to the floor can appear excitingly erotic.
