Dancers who require a full sole leather, lace-up jazz shoe that is still flexible will love these. Bloch's lace-up "Jazzlite" has a full rubber sole, and is perfect for performing on slippery surfaces.
I got these shoes about three and a half years ago for a dance camp, and ended up enrolling in an intense dance school. They've lasted through four different teachers and two big performances and one time when I got lost in a gravel parking lot with them on and I ran around for a few hours. Only about a month ago have they started to get holes in the stitching because my feet are growing. I would definitely recommend them.
