Beyond a Sock

Footwear to Preserve Your Body & Passion

Dancer injury rates are staggering. Due to the repetitive nature of dance and high impact forces of jumping etc., inflammation occurs in the joints and muscles. Inflammation, which if not properly treated, will lead to chronic and possibly career-ending injuries.

Yes, proper technique, strength training, and flooring is important, but equally important of this problem is a result of dancing grueling hours in bare feet or non-supportive footwear and lack of recovery time. Apolla Shocks are the answer.

We have thousands of testimonials from dancers like you on how life-changing our Shocks are, plus satisfaction is guaranteed.

Why did a barefoot choreographer, Mia Michaels decide to partner with Apolla? Watch this series to learn why we teamed up to change the culture of dance with evidence based information and the wisdom of a legend.
