2009 Black Leather
New to dance and wanted a closed toe shoe that wasn't a pump nor too dressy so my partner wouldn't kill my toes (he's new to dance too!). The mesh is really different looking. I typically wear an 8.5W (Clarks) and ordered up to a 9. Snug now, but I'm sure they'll break in after a short time. I'll definitely reorder when these are done.
Great Dance Shoes
I have owned this style before but my feet seemed to have grown out of them so I ordered them a half size bigger and they were perfect. The shape of the front of this shoe is a little wider than the normal medium but not too wide. My toes appreciated it. As a very active senior, I dance often and a variety of dances including salsa, swing, ballroom, and country. Heading for a cruise out of Seattle shipping the shoes to me in New York would have taken too long. So I contacted customer service and they suggested shipping the shoes to my Seattle hotel. My new dance shoes arrived there the day before I did. Thank you for the great idea.
I have been very pleased with the practice shoes I bought. They are light-weight, comfortable and feel sturdy on my feet. The netting allows air in and keeps my feet cool.
Nicely padded insoles & good quality suede on the soles make them both durable and comfortable.
I have a pair of these shoes. I have worn them so much they are falling apart. I love the mesh insert as it helps keep my feet a bit cooler (especially with the heat in our part of town).Definitely a great pair of shoes for teaching / practicing or (in my case) partnering femail students for their medal exams.
