Hi, I'm Stephanie Prosenjak from Cherry Creek Dance, and I'm here to answer your question, how to fix a ballet shoestring, after it has come out of your shoe. Honestly, it's probably going to be more frustrating and give you a big headache to try and restring this. Because the shoes are generally leather, or canvas and they're pretty thick lined. For your own needle and thread, without a machine, it's going to be really, really difficult. Even if you take it to a tailor shop, it's going to probably cost you about the same amount of money for them to restring this, as you buying a new pair. Generally the shoes run between 17 and 22 dollars. As you can see, the string has to be you know, flexible. So, when you're sewing it, you have to make sure that the elastic is not getting caught in there, or the string won't move at all. So, again, I think, it's going to be better for you to just go ahead and buy a brand new pair of ballet shoes, after the string has come out. So, this is Stephanie Prosenjak from Cherry Creek Dance, and I hope I've answered your question of how to fix a ballet shoestring after it's been out.
