Because I have large feet, it is hard to find shoes. I was hoping these would work for my ballroom dancing. They were still tight in the toe box, even tho they were "wide". Then the elastic that is attached to the cross strap got stretched out. Then the heels started to be too slippy and felt like they would fall off, so I didn't feel solid in my turns. I am thinking of finding a way to "fix" them.
I have a pair of Sansha Salsette1 sneaker that I love. It has a nice large toe area. And I have a pair of Sansha Tutto Neros that I have danced till they have holes, but like them still.
I am going to try a different teaching shoe. I'll let you know what happens.
This is a comfortable shoe for class or recitals. The cream color is more of a pink flesh tone than off-white. Also, I would recommend ordering your street shoe size. I wear a 6, but ordered a 7 based on the sizing chart. The shoe was much too large. Otherwise, this is a nice shoe.
