    It's hard to find tap shoes in the mid range between cheapies and professional shoes, upwards of a Jason Samuels Smith or even better. We tried these shoes because it's one of the only options in the 70 to 80 dollar range, but we are having lots of issues with them. The ankle is just way to wide for all of my girls, and so no matter the size, if they fit great or not, the heel is slipping out the shoe. Some of the girls have brand new shoes but we are going to order a Capezio CG19 to see if that will work better. I worry they are building bad habits just trying to clench the shoe to their foot. Especially during tricks, like wings, pickups, and toe stands, the shoe is falling off their foot! It's not that the shoe is too big, but the ankle is just made for a wider foot. I have an adult student that loves hers and has no issues. So maybe better for adults, but not students still growing.

  • Oooo.... this is a pretty shoe with "mus

    by: dancemadre - 04/24/2015

    This is the luxury shoe for all mid-to-advanced tappers. Even right out of the box it inspired jealousy and made me wish for a minute that I was the tapper who would get to wear these. The smell was delighful, the construction top notch, and the tapping resonation was so clear and crisp! The leather feels great in the hand. This is an upgrade for us from the Audeo's and you can definitely feel it. You won't go wrong with this shoe!

    I will be wearing these tap shoes in a street parade in DC in a couple of weeks, and they appear to be comfortable enough and durable enough to last me for the event. The taps sound good too!

  • Comfortable with great sound

    by: TessaBV - 02/09/2015

    Durability:

    I've been dancing for twelve years and teaching for two and I think these are my favorite shoes thus far. I bought these after I decided that my split soles had reached a point where they were hindering me rather than helping me. These shoes sounded fantastic and helped to force me into hitting each and every sound as clearly as possible. They are extremely comfortable after you break them in and they wear with grace, showing minimal scratching and stretching after over a year of intense work. I would 100% recommend these shoes to anyone.

  • Comfortable & good looking, but bad for

    by: Anna2 - 02/05/2015

    Comfort:

    Durability:

    This shoe is very roomy. I am a 6.5 with a wider foot, and I lace these all of the way shut. I ordered this in the same size as my TapFlex shoes; 7, and they fit pretty good. I may have been able to go a 1/2 size down, but the 7 is not at all too big. The size suggestion says order 1 whole size up. I don't recommend that at all. I recommend 1/2 size if you have a wider foot,and perhaps same as street if you are medium width or narrow. Narrow feet should perhaps avoid this shoe altogether! The shoe is not split sole, but has a very flexible demi-pointe. This is good for pirouettes and maybe pullbacks, but that is all.It is terrible for toe stands. I'm surprised I haven't seen a single review stating this. I can do a toe stand in pretty much any shoe, and every tap shoe I've ever had, but I can only barely do them in these. The problem is that unless you have a very strong foot you can't get completely onto the tip of this shoe, because no matter how hard you try you can't keep the shoe straight enough, since it bends very easily right behind the front tap. Gravity and this shoe are working against you. I can do a sort-of toe stand on the back edge of the shoe for a little bit, pointing my feet very hard and bending my knees excessively, but forget any other kind of toe work. I love everything else about the shoe, but I will have to continue the perfect tap shoe hunt, and save these for teaching.

    I bought my first pair of these tap shoes 7 years ago. I have used them weekly since then. They just broke yesterday. I am very hard on them and they have held up amazingly. I wont ever buy another type other than these!

  • Comfortable tap shoe

    by: Inga - 09/20/2013

    Comfort:

    Comfort and good fit are my priority in any shoe and even more so with dance shoes. They run a bit small so I ordered a half and whole size larger pair. The half size larger fit perfectly and a fellow tapper found the other size fit her. So with two happy tappers I did not have to return the larger shoes. The shoes are well made, soft, and comfortable right from the first dance class.

  • Sadly, the shoes didn't fit

    by: Beginnertapdancer - 09/07/2013

    I wear a 6.5 in street shoe (and 6.5 in Capezio tap shoes), but based on the advice in the description and other reviews I ordered up in size, getting 7's. The 7's were huge so I returned them and got 6's and 5.5's. The 6's were still too big - my heels slipped out the back - and the 5.5's were too tiny. So, sadly, I had to return them all.

    These are my daughters first full sole tap shoes (she was a little sad to leave the spit sole) and I am very impressed. They fit perfectly and were very comfortable.

    I've never had such a comfortable pair of tap shoes. The lining is wonderful, and I love that the top of the heel is notched where your achilles tendon is - EVERY shoe should have that feature. I would say order 1 size up from street size. I did order these on clearance in the Narrow, and I'm afraid the medium width would not work at all for a narrow foot, because even the Narrow wasn't all that narrow...But if you have a medium to wider foot, you will LOVE these!

    I have been a fan of BLOCH shoes - tap, jazz, ballet, etc. and have always worn the jazz taps. This year I tried the Oxfords and fell in love with them after ONE class! However, I do agree about the flying screws and taps. After 3 classes my taps were coming very loose and I lost 2-3 screws. I do not like gluing or filling the holes as it really damages the sound of the taps, but for the price I love them. Great soft leather upper, the inside is soft and fleecy feeling and I love the Shockwave Taps!!! I would recommend these for more advanced Tappers just because they are tough to break in. I LOVE BLOCH!

    These Shoes are So soft on the inside, they will be a little hard to tap in if you are used to wearing split sole taps, BUT once you learn to tap in them they create beautiful crisp sounds, and they're loud too!

    Received them a couple weeks ago. Very comfortable. Fitting suggestion right on target. Better sounds than flex soles. Toe stands definitely harder because of non flexible sole. But as a pointe student, they are getting easier as the shoes get broken in.
