This is the best shoe I've found for square dancing. The suede sole slides on the floor without being slippery. The firm heel adds support but is low and comfortable. The canvas shoe has just enough give to avoid rubbing and blisters and just enough structure to be supportive. Square dancers walk miles at each dance, and this shoe is great for that!
I bought two pairs for a musical and they’re perfect! I needed something with almost no heel and elastic straps and these were the only ones I could find on any website. I recommend going a HALF SIZE UP 100%.
These are great and fit according to what is stated. We ordered a half size up and they fit perfectly. My only critique is that the elastic is quite a bright pinky orange unlike the other brands which match the ballet pink tights. But I will just paint them lighter. Still happy with the shoes and the price.
My feet are very small so I ordered the size 5 like my other shoes. I was surprised when I had to return them for a 1/2 size larger. (Return via UPS was $20; via USPS was only $13. The difference in my line dancing is amazing! The shoes glide and are SO light!! I had tons of compliments and passed on the website to several people. The only thing that puzzled me with the manufacturer was why they didn't glue the suede on the heel. A quick glue job helped solved that easily enough.
They are actually comfortable! I think I ended up keeping the ones that were about half a size up from what I usually get. The snaps came undone a little when they were new, but they haven't recently.
