Hi Guys,

I think the time has come for me to buy my first salsa shoes! However, I don't know anything about dance shoes for guys, and the search function on this forum hasn't helped me much.

I don't want to buy the sneakers, but the "formal" shoes. I really like the black suede look over the shiny/normal leather ones... is that an option? Something like this:

http://henrygdance.com/dance-shoes/men-s-shoes/latin-dance-shoes/henry-g-men-s-latin-dance-shoes-black-hgb-402-o.html

Can I buy something like this in Toronto?

Also, how high is the heel supposed to be for a men's shoe? Are there different heights?

Thanks,

Ivan

Hi Ivan!

What you have shown are ballroom shoes will a higher heel. I don't recommend this for nightclub salsa. Try to find something with a very low heel like the heel on a regular shoe like this: http://www.naturalspindancewear.com/natural-spin-signature-mens-dance-shoes-ballroom-shoes-h2201black-p-11767.html

Also try to not buy suede because it will get scuffed up. You do need suede or leather bottoms but not on top.

Natural Spin, Addicted to Dance Shoes - these are good places to buy men's shoes in Toronto.

Good luck!

Hi Sharon,

Ok, so I am looking for "standard" or "nightclub" shoes on these websites and not "latin" ones. Got it.

Thanks!

Ivan
