Obviously, I will need to use white thread of some kind to sew the elastics on these. However, I only have 'Stitch Kits' with pink, lightly waxed thread, (ABOVE) so I will probably use double or triple stranded white 'dental floss' instead. When dental floss is used to sew ribbons and elastics, it is customary to use waxed floss. However, considering that this project involves dyeing the shoes, I will likely choose 'unwaxed' white dental floss, which will more readily take up dye than the waxed version will. In any case, I'll check this all out before I sew and decide what to use based on what 'dyes' best.

Sansha Futura 111's are available from the manufacturer in peach pink, white, red, dark blue (ABOVE) and in black. They are available up to women's size 14 (sizes 12-14 are special order), but men with small feet might be able to get away with wide women's 12-14's. I suggest you contact an authorized dealer like www.BackBayDancewear.com or www.DiscountDance.com (Discount Dance Supply) if you are interested in these 'sneaker-like' pointe shoes.
