I've been trying a few kinds of tapes lately and I haven't been able to find one I like. I've been en pointe for 2 years and I used bunheads toe tape for quite a while, but it began sliding off and not what I wanted. A few weeks ago I tried nexcare absolute water proof tape and I got a new blister every time I wore that tape! D: So, please share what type of toe tape you use and why you like it. :)

Thanks!

I use 3M Microfoam tape. It's the one that is considered the "Gaynor Minden Toe Tape" but I buy it much more cheaply by the box under the above-named brand.

Lately, I haven't had to use any tape so I'm pleased with that! :D

You don't need to use fancy medical grade tape to prevent blisters. Hockey tape is an awesome alternative and is very flexible because it's made of fabric. It is also very sticky and has only ever slipped off after hours and hours of dancing when I was taking my shoes off.

I love Pointe Bleu but it's expensive (almost $10 for a roll!). It's just perfect... sticks to itself but not skin, and completely breathable, no matter how many layers you put on. Aside from that, I use the cheapy smiley face rolls you can get at Discount Dance Supply, but it's not breathable at all, though it also only sticks to itself and not skin.

I buy cloth (not paper) medical tape from the drgustore. I like Johnson & Johnson tape. 3M Duropore is too sticky, and is generally too fussy.

I use that stretchy sports tape! I also use paper tape and smiley face tape you can get on dicountdance.com!
