What makes a dance shoe different than a regular street shoe? This question is one I hear alot from clients. Simply, dance shoes provide the flexibility, support and comfort that an ordinary shoe can't provide.  Also, the sole is critical to the movement and performance of the shoe. Depending on the kind of dance, shoes are designed differently. For example, a shoe used for zumba dance will be completely different than a shoe intended for hip hop dancing.
When clients visit our store, we are often asked these type of technical questions. Having been in the business for forty years and having had the privilege of working under the tutelage of my father Theodore Adelson for over twenty five years, I am fortunate enough to have gained the experience and knowledge to help clients with all of their inqiuries.
