Teaching 20+ years; this is the best mid-range hard sole shoe I've found. I've got a moderately narrow foot and like a snug fit (they stretch a bit over time). I followed the fitting suggestion and ordered my street size & they fit just snugly enough. If you more like room in your shoes, I'd go up a half size. If you have wider feet, choose the wide width! The sound is not as rich as the higher end shoes. If you want greater articulation, go with a split sole. For a full sole you won't find many to top these for under $100.
I love these shoes. I am a 61 year old tap dancing man and I finally found some shoes that feel good and are fun in style.
I found ascI get older that I need to find a wider width. Had to exchange first pair for wide and they were friendly, efficient and fast. I couldn't be happier.
Had an exchange & it was handled quickly & professionally!
Sizing advice was accurate. Great shoe a step above a baseline shoe.
Even better than the shoes themselves, the service is tops!
