My foot problem has been acting up again, so I've been thinking about my options for great, comfortable dancing shoes. Then I remembered that back in our ballroom dance days* some of the dancers had dance sneakers, and I tried a pair on and was shocked by how comfortable but still easy-to-dance-in they were.
Then I thought, oh gee, I wonder if they come in white.
Bloch Dance Sneaker. Check out also the Capezio Toggle and the Capezio Dansneaker. Some of these dance sneakers are made with special soles that let you still twirl and swirl easily without the rubber sole catching on the floor and forcing you to twist an ankle. They also boast a split sole to allow for maximum flexibility and bend ability.
And lets be real. Nobody is seeing these under your dress, so why not change into these for maximum fun dancing instead of into some crummy old flip flops that won't let you foot rock appropriately during a swing dance?
Would you wear dance sneakers? What about when I tell you they are "only" $60?
*to those of you thinking "gah! she made him go dancing!" please keep in mind that I'm a terrible dancer with no rhythm and Mark was the dancer when we met.
