This classic lace-up jazz tap shoe features taps that come screwed on with a sound board underneath. Includes a sturdy heel counter, a non-skid rubber patch behind the taps, and a cushioned sock lining for extra comfort.
Bought size 13. This shoe was too big for my daughter who wears street size 12. Ordered up based on recommendations they ran small but was a least 1 in too big. Ordering down half size. FYI size 13 was perfect though for her jazz shoe T7802c
The sizing chart recommends using "street shoe size for children", but I have found that this shoe is small! The shoe I ended up with is 3 full sizes larger than my child's street shoe size! This may be unique to us, but it's a big enough size difference that I wanted to leave a review!
We ordered these for my daugther. This is her 5th year of tap. These shoes by far exceeded my expectations. She needed something better than the patent leather start-out tap shoe, but I didn't want to spend the money on a higher end tap shoe for her. These shoes by far exceeded my expectation. I would recommend these for sure.
Are there any problems with the screws falling out?

This is considered a value shoe. The design of this shoe is constructed more for a beginner to wear minimally per week, where as a more advanced dancer, might wear through it faster. If you encounter an issue of screws falling out after minimal wear, you might have received a defective pair which is seldom, but would be able to return it for inspection and potential refund of the product. - DDS Customer Service (09/10/2015)
Does this tap shoe (T9500C) come in a size 2 or 3?
by: D (08/18/2013)
This style does not come in a child size 2.0 or 3.0
The largest size is a child 1.5
You would need to convert the child to the adult shoe size.

I'm buying these for a 6 year old that wears a size 12 street shoe. She does have a wider foot so I will probably order them in a wide. I don't want to hassle of sending them back a bunch of times if they don't fit.
The sizing suggestion does recommend ordering true to street shoe size. However, this particular shoe does NOT come in a Wide width. You would be safe ordering a half size larger, as a half size only measures a quarter of an inch in length. - DDS Customer Service (08/01/2013)
