I love these tap shoes which I use for clogging. They are sturdy and have a nice solid sound to them. Other reviews were confusing on sizing. Some said they run small, some said they run large and some said they run true! I am normally a size 5 in my street shoes, so I ordered a 5 believing the “runs true” reviews. I could barely get my foot in the size 5! I sent them back and went up a whole size to size 6 and they fit me perfectly, a bit snug to the foot. So, I suggest ordering a whole size up from your regular street shoe size!
My daughter is in love with these shoes!
I can't believe I had tapped for so many years with just "regular" tap shoes. I love these Jason Samuels Smith tap shoes. My sounds are so much more crisp; and it's easier to get the sound I am going for. They are heavy, but don't feel heavy on my feet while dancing. I bought a whole size bigger than I usually wear. I usually wear a 9.5 in street shoes, but I bought a 10.5. They were comfortable right when I put them on. Love them!!!
