"Mary Jane" style tap shoe features a secure Velcro closure, a rubber sole pad for traction and stability, screw-in heel taps, a padded sole for comfort, and a padded heel collar to help prevent blisters and injuries to the Achilles tendon. The black patent features a PVC upper while the tan features a matte PU upper.
This is the second pair I have purchased for my three year-old granddaughter. She outgrew the first pair and I didn't hesitate to order new ones just like the first ones. They fit perfectly and are well-made. She loves them so much she won't take them off. I highly recommend this purchase.
These are nice looking shoes and appear to be good quality. They do follow street sizing and possibly run a bit large. Up until now, my daughter's tap shoes in general have run really small and I've learned to size up. Don't size up for this one!
