I bought these in the snakeskin pattern to use for modern, and they work pretty well. They haven't ripped, and the only issue I have with them is that the elastic around the top is a bit tight. I can turn in them without getting stuck on marley and they do what they need to do! I would suggest ordering up a size because of the tightness of the band.
I love the look of these foot undies, but I just got them and have already had to sew them back together three times. I would definitely get something more capable of handling the amount of turning I do daily.
the best modern lyrical shoe i know of! People might say they don't like them because they rip well that is only because they might have gotten a size too big. I strongly recommend these shoes to any dancer. If they rip o well its like a jazz shoe it cant last forever. They will not rip much, the tan mesh foot undies rip the most.
