I just got two pair of shoes I ordered from Dance Store, to be able to cross off black walking shoes and white canvas shoes from my list. I have never ordered from them before, but only heard good things and I’m very pleased with my shoes. If you ordered, read the sizing tips for the shoe you are interested in. I have a European size 41 which is usually 9 ½ in USA. However, the canvas shoes I ordered in size 10 as that was recommended and I find that both my shoes fit perfectly. Another thing to bear in mind is that dance shoes needs to be re-soled if you are going to wear them outside the ball room.
The canvas shoes are just plain canvas shoes, not much to say about them. As they are dance shoes they are a bit more padded inside than usual, though, which makes them more comfortable.
The 1940’s peep-toed meshed oxfords are a bit more original, though. I love them! I’m not the world’s biggest fan of peep-toes, but in the 40’s the “pep” was much smaller than they are today, and these do have a small one. But then they are re-productions of this shoe.
They are really comfortable too and with heels that are a sturdy 2 inches, they will be comfortable to walk in.
