This best selling tap shoe features an easy lace-up front and semi-flexible shank. The PU upper gives like leather and the insole and upper are cushioned for maximum comfort. 1" heel, taps come attached.
I ordered eleven of these for a tap number in a musical production. From the street shoe sizes, I ordered a half-size up for girls and 2 sizes up for boys. All but one fit, though most were a snug (good) fit. I'd recommend maybe an additional half-size up or whole size up for growing room, if needed.
They look good, they're comfy, and they have a good tone, especially for the price (sound about as good as my more expensive shoes!). They only need to last about 8 more weeks until the performance, so I won't be able to speak much to durability, but so far, so good!
They also shipped and arrived very quickly, so we had them for a few more rehearsals than we anticipated. Overall: very happy.
Got these (adult version) for my 10 year old daughter - they survived a year of tap and shows in good shape but unfortunately she's grown out of them. Buying again. They do run about a size smaller than your normal size.
