Bought these for boys to practice in before they get their drag heels. A really beautiful shoe with reinforced heels and pretty proportions. The boys are whinging mightily, as expected! Of the 6 pair currently in use, one came unglued from the sole early in to rehearsal. They were very kind to replace them for me quickly! I think SoDanca has an issue with quality control because I've had shoes that I have used for multiple month long dance shows, and I've had shoes that died after a week of rehearsal. Thankfully, DWC has my back!
I am a dancer and needed these heels for a musical. I was unsure at first about sizing because it says go a size up. My normal sneaker size is a 9 but sometimes in dance heels I'm a 9.5 because I have very wide feet. I ordered a 10 and they fit perfectly. The service was great because they arrived within 3 days. The shoe is very comfortable as much as a three inch heel can be with lots of cushion. I would highly recommend if you are looking for a great 3 inch dance heel.
I was excited when I initially made this purchase, especially based on all the good reviews. I found the the shoes are constructed totally different. The back of the heel is so low that I literally walk out of them when I try to walk. As I stand in them, they seem to be comfortable but I can't wear them for any other purpose. The return shipping was too expensI've to bother sending them back.
We had fabulous customer service from DanceWear Corner, helping us solve the problem when a buckle broke on one shoe a few days after our company started dancing in them. Later in the run a heel broke on another pair. So, I am conflicted about the durability, but they fit and feel fantastic and look exactly how we wanted, so I don't want to change styles and am hoping it was just a fluke.
I was already a fan of So Danca because of the padded insole, but I absolutely love the styling of these shoes as well. The tall heel looks great on stage and the practicality of it being thicker, rounded and reinforced means every dance step can be taken with confidence. Two thumbs way up!
