its good shoe for a beginner but not for advanced or pro level dancers and NO I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THESE SHOES FOR ANYONE BUT A BEGINNER becouse of the poor constuction the pair I bought only lasted for 4 weaks but then I dance 8-10 hrs a day as a teacher
These shoes are super comfortable! I bought the black ones and i wish i got the tan ones.... The black ones make your tights very dirty and grey. If you don't wear your tights under them then your feet get dirty. I prefer to wear them with the strap just to make sure they don't slip off. Overall they make your feet look good when you point them, they are comfy, they can and sometimes do slip off, and they can make your feet/tights dirty.
