Capezio's Riff slip-on tap shoe is constructed with a full grain leather upper with medial/lateral elastic gore inserts. The lightly padded collar and Achilles is for pressure relief and comfort. Other features include a padded footbed with non-slip socklining, TeleTone toe and heel taps, and split-sole construction with extended leather forepart to provide additional support during toe stands.
I got these shoes because I wanted to give tap another try after taking a 2 year break. These shoes are super comfy and dont give you blisters on the backs of your ankles like some "other" brands. The only downside is that they run pretty small...as in 1-1 1/2 size too small. Theyre totally worth it for the price and alot of people in my class want some now too.
