There is probably no other dance footwear with more features than women's Latin dance shoes. Let's try to figure out in an orderly fashion how to choose the right shoes for you. Let's assume that you are already familiar with some brands and prefer one of them. Also, you have already chosen the design, material and color. You have even figured out what size you need. An inexperienced dancer would think that it's enough to complete a successful choice of shoes, but no. It is where the fun part of choosing women's Latin dance shoes begins.
Choice of heel height. Usually the heel height ranges between 4 and 12 cm. For beginner dancers, we recommend a 5 cm heel. More experienced and professional dancers choose 7-9 cm heels. And in rare cases, expert dancers choose a 10-12 cm heel. The transition from a children's block heel to a junior and adult heel should be safe. Therefore, we do not recommend a heel higher than 5 cm until the foot gets used to a thin 5 cm heel.
Heel form. The shape of the heel usually affects the visual effect and stability. Therefore, when switching from a block heel to a thin 5 cm adult heel, we recommend choosing a Flare or Cuban heel form. This will be the safest and most painless transition from a children's heel to an adult one. Older and more professional dancers choose Flare, Straight or Slim heel form. A professional dancer already knows which form of heel suits him or her best. Foot stability is influenced not only by the heel shape, but also by the architecture of the shoe model. Some brands adhere to the "exactly 90 degrees" rule, which gives a more stable feel. At the same time, some brands create models where the heel line is not exactly perpendicular. Thus, if the chosen size is incorrect, then you are more likely to feel imbalanced. Also, we should not forget that properly prepared feet are the basis, and shoes are an attribute that should not interfere with you, but on the contrary, help you perform the brightest, most dynamic and most unusual figures on the floor.
Width of women's Latin dance shoes. Some brands of women's Latin dance shoes offer 5 width options. This is a great opportunity to choose shoes exactly for your foot.
