Excellent for Folklorico and Flamenco dance styles, this shoe features a leather upper, nails on the heel and toe, a 2.5" leather covered wooden heel for enhanced sound, a buckle strap and a cushioned insole for a comfortable fit.
I am a Greek Folkloric dancer and desire the sturdiness of a Flamenco shoe but without the nails. Would it be possible to remove them without compromising the integrity of the shoe? Could you order a pair for me without them (even if there is a cost difference)? If so, I'm sure many other women in my troupe would be interested in them as well.
I face the same problem with Mexican Folkloric. nails are ripping off the floor and had to take them to the shoe repair guy to pull them out. cost me $20 per pair to remove the nails. would love to see HIGH QUALITY flamenco shoes offered with no nails but still have the rubber sole to prevent slips. The rest of the lyrical shoes being offered at this site have poor quality. - R2d2florida (09/14/2015)
