Tap Shoe Fit
When you are purchasing ladies tap dancing shoes, it is very important that you get the fit right; otherwise, you could end up with shoes that are very uncomfortable and which may cause you an injury from tripping and falling over in them. Furthermore, if your shoes are not the perfect fit, then the sound made by the shoes will not be as clear. It is particularly important for those beginning to dance and always remember that the size may differ to regular shoes on the high street. Your shoes should be very snug, but not too tight or uncomfortable. You do not want lots of room in the toe area as this area usually stretches out anyway. We would recommend opting for a smaller size than a larger size if you are going in between.
What many people forget when choosing this style of tap shoes is that it is not all about the style and look of the shoe, but also the sound of it too! The number of screws attached to the shoe will make them sound different, and these are adjustable to produce different sounds. Most shoes will have three screws on each.
What’s great about this shoe type is that there are lots of variations of it and what is best for the dancer usually comes down to their age and experience. Ours is perfect for beginners! They provide good support for youngsters as well as balance, which gives you an added layer of security.
