Unlike ballet shoes, tap shoes should fit like a regular street shoe. We do suggest purchasing these with plenty of growing room but not so much that the shoe is falling off the foot! You may want to send a pair of socks with your child to wear with the shoes until they have grown into them. Tap shoes must have buckles. Using buckles alleviates all problems associated with tying shoes ( such as it coming off and hitting someone, any mirrors , and using valuable class time to tie shoes for the many young ones who are still learning to tie, etc.).
BOYS-May purchase Tan Tap Boys OXFORDS. (yes these tie:)
As with any pair of shoes, please check your child’s shoes regularly to make sure they fit properly!
Please purchase shoes at a local dancewear shop. To find a store near you, look under DANCEWEAR in the phonebook.
