The importance of footwear in the Bikini Fitness competition
Think about it; your feet are the foundation of all your stage presence. If you don’t walk gracefully and decisively, your staging will be affected.
With the right Bikini Fitness shoes:
- Your legs look longer and shapelier, and your physique stands out.
- You will stand up straighter and more elegant, showing off your body completely.
- You will be comfortable to walk the stage with confidence.
- You will pose smoothly and naturally.
This is why it is very important not to choose just any shoe; making mistakes with your competition shoes can ruin all your work. They can even lead to disqualification.
We explain this in detail below.
Each federation has its own regulations on Bikini Fitness footwear
The bodybuilding competition world is full of rules.
If you’re new to competition, it can be very stressful, and it’s no wonder. As we said, not complying with your federation’s rules can lead to disqualification from a competition.
All your preparation work over months can go to waste!
We don’t want any of our Mussas to find themselves in such an unpleasant situation, which is why every model in our Bikini Fitness competition shoe catalog specifies which federation they are valid for.
In this article we will focus on the International Federation of Bodybuilders and Fitness (IFBB) standards. But if you compete in any other Federation, you should consult their specific regulations. Here are the main existing federations in Europe:
consult their specific regulations. Here are the main existing federations in Europe:
- International Federation of Bodybuilders and Fitness (IFBB), We will go into detail later regarding its regulations.
- International Federation of Bodybuilding and Fitness-Professional (IFBB PRO): In the past IFBB and IFBB PRO were a single entity, but after their separation, IFBB PRO is a fully independent federation with its own regulations.
- World Association of Body Building Amateur (WABBA): is an international federation based in Europe.
- In Natural Bodybuilding & Fitness (INBA): was founded in 2017 aiming to bring together people who do not use any type of banned substance to compete, according to their own definition.
NOTE: You should know where you intend to compete before buying your shoes and bikini. Also, depending on which federation you choose, the way you pose will also change.
What do the Bikini Fitness shoes admitted by the IFBB look like
Let’s go over the details of the IFBB competition shoes rules (you can check their complete Bikini and Body Fitness regulations in this link).
- The sole must have a maximum height of 1 cm from the footprint.
- The maximum heel height allowed is 12 cm.
- The use of platforms shoes is strictly forbidden.
- The color and style are the competitor’s decision; however, they recommend wearing transparent shoes that will not distract the judges from your physique.
With our Mussa shoes you can be completely confident, since all the models presented below strictly comply with the IFBB regulations for the Bikini, Wellness and Body Fitness categories.
