The Practice/Cuban Collection of styles are great for practice. Featuring a professional ultra soft suede outer sole, 1.5" Cuban heel, ultra light weight, increased shoe flexibility and a softer inner sole and deluxe cushioning for more comfort.
My ballroom friend ordered a different style of shoe and different size from Discount Dance and she warned me about how roomy the forefoot part of the shoe wasl She had to return them.
I decided to purchase a different style of ballroom shoes anyway because I really loved the cuban style and maybe it was just her feet. Unfortunately, she was right. The length of the shoe was perfect for my size 9; however the section where you slip in your toes was too roomy. I tried wearing two pairs of think socks and still was floating. Not very attractive with a skirt. I will need to return them.
