Bloch's leather upper, leather sole tap shoe with 3/4 heel. The buckle is attached by elastic for a firmer fit and the taps are screwed on top of a resonating board. Also featuring a rubber pad on the metatarsal that will add comfort while helping to prevent skidding.
This is the best tap shoe I have ever had. I have had many shoes over the years and these are my favorite. They produce very nice sounds and are extremely comfortable and durable. I have had my pair for 3+ years and they have just broken in. My only complaint is that they are difficult to toe stand in because of the full sole, but once they mold to your feet it is not an issue. If you are looking for a fabulous tap shoe, buy this one!
My daughter wears exactly a size 11.5 (just measured it last week) and that is what I ordered and it just fit but we are sending it back for the 12s.
She must have wide feet, as the strap was on the very last notch and the sides of the shoe rubbed her instep a little where the seam on the shoe is. (I bet it will be fine once they break in and with the 1/2 size bigger.)
These make a great sound and are beautiful shoes. It was hard to send them back for a different size.
