How do you sew the elastics on a ballet cross?

How do you put elastic on shoes?

First sew the instep part of the elastic. Using a small backstitch, sew through the elastic to the inside of the shoe across the full width of the elastic. Then tack down the corner of the elastic that sticks out when you fold the rest over the shoe (this is easier to understand when you do it in person).

Do pointe shoes need elastic?

The primary purpose of elastics is to keep the pointe shoe heel secure, but they can also give a more form-fitting appearance and add a touch of extra support throughout the shoe. The most common placement is a single elastic across the front of the ankle, from one side of the heel to the other.
