These are great. Good fit and comfortable with a split sole.
A larger sole area provides comfort around the ball of the foot. They wrap well around the foot for a pleasant look. The wide elastic is comfortable and eliminates the need for a drawstring.
suitable shoes for dance
I have worked my way through many shoes and for me right now these are the best. They are highly recommended by many dance studios. They fit the foot very well and feel protective yet stretchy. The pad under the ball of the foot doesn't cause pain as some can do. I wear a size 9 street shoe and wear a 6 C or with this purchase a 6 1/2 B ( they were sold out of the other). These shoes last quite a while, love them!
The elastic makes this shoe fit perfectly, and I love that they come completely sewn!
