Help with shoes please

Recommended Posts

My dd does jazz and has been using foot thongs in class but doesn't like them for doing things like pirouettes. Some of the students wear ballet shoes but she’s not fond of wearing the shoes for jazz so it was suggested the tries the half/pirouette shoe. I however have never had to buy these so have no idea what I’m doing. Does anyone have any suggestions of a good half shoe to try? Her favourite ballet shoe is the capezio hanami is that makes any difference.  Thank you.

We did get some although DD never actually used them. They are really just a leather toe-cover and some narrow strips of elastic. So just go by her shoe size and you can adjust the elastic if necessary. I don't think the brand is so important as there's not much to them – although DC will always have favourites!
For example, on this website they give sizing info according to street shoe size: https://www.movedancewear.com/dance_shoes_contemporary_shoes-bloch_vantage_leather/1763/

DD wanted leather ones as she wears through the canvas ones quite fast ... but she couldn't get a good fit for her feet and said they were uncomfortable to dance in, so we've gone back to the Capezio canvas half shoes.

Thank you. I’ve bought Capezio canvas half shoes which dd will try tonight. I’ll let you know how she gets on.

Just to update. Dd used them for her jazz class and really liked them. She much preferred them to the foot thongs and they were really comfortable too.
