I wear ladies 9-9.5.5E/WW/XW shoes, or a men's 7.5-8W. Finding dance shoes is hard, especially with a low heel! When I saw that these weren't split sole AND came in wide I had to try them out. I bought 9.5Ws. Verdict? They're wide, but definitely not extra wide. A set of shoe stretchers and some shoe stretching spray have helped quite a bit. The sole of my foot is still wider than the sole of the shoe, but what can you do? It'll be a great addition to my collection and look pretty innocuous with either folk dance costumes or street clothes. Definitely going to recommend to my younger male students that can still get them in their size.
Loved the shoes I ordered. I had to call customer service due to a shortage of shoes for the size that I requested and the customer service rep was great and very helpful. The shoes came in a timely manner, they're comfortable, and I'm very pleased with my purchase.
I have ordered different pairs of the jazz oxford. The 7W was very small compared to my last pair of the same brand. I measured the sole to make sure! I exchanged for a 71/2 W and it is actually smaller than the 7W. The quality is not nearly as nice as my previous pair. I will look for another brand of jazz oxford.
These shoes are so much fun for a dance that needs some extra pizzazz! My kids have used them before and we love them. DWC is terrific with customer service too!
Great for teaching and ballroom light and comfy
