I bought these shoes for a beginner class and didn't want to spend a lot of money. They're good for a little while. they run a little narrow though. After about halfway through my second set of classes the sole on one of the shoes is peeling away. They are good for one or two set of classes if you're just starting out. But if you are planning to continue to do tap then I suggest getting a better pair.
