I’m pretty new to having tap heals and these are really comfortable and easy to break in! A little quiet at first but after 1-2 classes in them the rubber gets buffed down and makes the taps not muffled as much! Make sure to order 1-1.5 sizes up! (I’m a 6 US and I ordered a 7.5 and they fit great with and without socks)
Went up a size.. fits perfect
I was a bit doubtful purchasing an off-Brand non-Capezio tap, but these are very comfortable, the taps sounded great out of the box. My only concern is that the rubber is very soft and thick, thus I am unable to create a sound during a toe drop. The rubber scuffs pretty badly, I was a little embarrassed in my class at the mess I made on the floor. I suppose in time the rubber will wear away and won't leave as much residue, and eventually I'll be able to hear my toe drops as well.
I ordered a pair of these almost 4 years and they held up well until I got this recent pair. Love these tap shoes! They came super fast from Florida to California too! 4 days! Will definitely be keeping this company in mind for any other dance needs I may have.
My daughter loves them! She wears a large shoe and this was the only company we could find that carried a 13! Thank you for that!
