The Practice/Cuban Collection of styles are great for practice. Featuring a professional ultra soft suede outer sole, 1.5" Cuban heel, ultra light weight, increased shoe flexibility and a softer inner sole and deluxe cushioning for more comfort.
This is my eighth or ninth pair of VFD Cuban heels.
I don’t compete west coast swing often, so they’re good for routines and competition in that regard. They tend to run wide and about a quarter inch to long in the toe. However, they're a decent price point and I prefer the rough brushed sure bottom as opposed to other Wcs shoes.
This is also one of the few Wcs sandals that are easily accessible in price and shipping that come in tan.
My ballroom friend ordered a different style of shoe and different size from Discount Dance and she warned me about how roomy the forefoot part of the shoe wasl She had to return them.
I decided to purchase a different style of ballroom shoes anyway because I really loved the cuban style and maybe it was just her feet. Unfortunately, she was right. The length of the shoe was perfect for my size 9; however the section where you slip in your toes was too roomy. I tried wearing two pairs of think socks and still was floating. Not very attractive with a skirt. I will need to return them.
