I bought these for a tap student recently. The first class she used them, a nail came out. Another student stepped on it by accident a ripped a hole in my brand new Marley Floor. Not happy!
Hello Melissa! Thank you for sharing your experience with these shoes. We will address the issue with the manufacturer and make them aware of the problem. One of our Customer Service representatives will contact you shortly to rectify the situation.
I ordered eleven of these for a tap number in a musical production. From the street shoe sizes, I ordered a half-size up for girls and 2 sizes up for boys. All but one fit, though most were a snug (good) fit. I'd recommend maybe an additional half-size up or whole size up for growing room, if needed.
They look good, they're comfy, and they have a good tone, especially for the price (sound about as good as my more expensive shoes!). They only need to last about 8 more weeks until the performance, so I won't be able to speak much to durability, but so far, so good!
They also shipped and arrived very quickly, so we had them for a few more rehearsals than we anticipated. Overall: very happy.
Got these (adult version) for my 10 year old daughter - they survived a year of tap and shows in good shape but unfortunately she's grown out of them. Buying again. They do run about a size smaller than your normal size.
My son is 16 and wears a size 8 shoe. Can you please suggest what size I should order him in the So Dance Beginner Tap Shoe? Thank you!
A mens 8 is equivalent to a womens 10. According to the sizing guide, you are suggested to order the same or a half size larger. Therefore, we would suggest a 10 or 10.5.
Please contact customer service for additional information. - DDS Customer Service (01/28/2016)
I need a sturdy pair that doesn't have an overly flexible arch so I can have more support on my toes.
The best tap shoes for toe stands have split soles. The Capezio CG16 ?FlexMaster? is better for toe stands and has a strong toe box for support. The Leo's LS3006L Adult Split Sole Jazz Tap Shoe is also good for toe stands. - DDS Customer Service (02/10/2015)
The suggest fit for women is to order same or .5 size larger than street shoe. Unfortunately we cannot guarantee sizing as we are an on-line company, but we suggest trying a size 7.0. - DDS Customer Service (07/17/2013)
