Dance Now's student tap shoe features taps that offer maximum contact for maximum sound. The non-slip pro balance pad is located behind the tap. Other features include a man-made upper and sole, padded insoles, and soft lining. This shoe is packaged with elastic tap ties and matching ribbon allowing two choices of attachment. Taps are riveted onto the shoe. 1/2" heel.
Runs a little narrow but a very high-quality shoe which my 4 year-old loves. I ordered half size larger for a perfect fit now. Would recommend one size up for longer wear time. For wide feet, I would not recommend this shoe.
I bought these for my 3 1/2 year old dancer and I ordered her street shoe size, right away she complained they were too tight. The length is ok, but they are way too narrow. Be careful when ordering yours.
I am back to order my daughter's 3rd pair of these. We have three girls and I have no doubt they will last through all of them. I love that they come with the elastic ties, that is all her dance teacher allows as it makes for easy transition. When she outgrows each size I order the next size up. These run a little small, about 1/2 size, as she is a 2 in street shoes and her 13's tap shoes are getting small. Thank you so much for making shoes at affordable prices and excellent quality.
