Hi - I'm looking for a comfortable pair of dance shoes - I have plantar faciitis, diabetic neuropathy, arthritis, etc. I did try looking for your shop, Odie, but I don't have a Facebook page... do you have a regular website? Or does anyone have some good suggestions for someone whose feet are half numb and half painful, lol? Thanks!

Have you tried Diamont shoes? I know a couple of school teachers who have switched over to this brand of shoe because they are SOOO comfortable.

They ARE a lot more expensive, but so worth the extra cost when you can dance all night long in them after being in heels teaching school all day long.

I own 4 pairs of shoes from Diamant. They offer a comfort line which has an arch support and a lower heel (spanish style and Cuban style). check out Carmens Dance Shoes on line as they offer a extensive choice as well as similar brands with comfort fit. They will also free ship an exchange if you need to return for size. Karizmah Dance Shoes offer a limited Diamant line. I have dealt with both businesses and they are very helpful.

Hey Amanda!

I have about 10 pairs of dance shoes that I've bought from appledanceshoes.com. They ahev a wide variety if Very Fine shoes at reasonable prices! You can live chat with their customer service representatives and they can help you decide what shoes would best fit you. I recommend you check out the website! :)

I would suggest to get an item with mesh on the sides since it eases the tightness versus a full leather front. Take a look at some very fine styles. My wife owns C5017 from Very fine and is a happy dancer. You can purchase online. I took a look at what Bachadicta posted and they carry them. It all depends if you like the style. I hope you find comfortable shoes so you can dance the night away.

Hello Odie:
You might consider just a regular website. I'm not on Facebook, but when I did go to your website, it required me to enter my e-mail address and then another pop up to share or like came up. Not my thing. Unfortunately, I cannot browse your shoes due to that inconvenience :(

Hi Amanda,

anything with extra cushioning would work great! Have you been dancing fora long time? Maybe a short heel would help. What brand of shoes did you buy? :O

Hello Amanda,

I want to suggest ordering ballroom shoes from http://www.exoticsalsashoes.com/. Recently had the same problem with a pair I bought on ebay but came across this site and I love them! I have skinny feet so needed a Narrow width but didn't have to order narrow, medium seemed to work fine on the style recommended by their customer service. Try calling them and they will guide you in the right direction!I'll double check for the style I don't remember it off hand.

My wife and I swear by Werner Kerns (Anna Kerns). They're not cheap but she has had major foot surgery and they provide the best support and most comfort of all the shoes she's tried (and she's tried them all, believe me). I find them to be the most comfortable men's shoe out there. And they last - no breaking straps/heels/etc after a couple of comps.

We also swear by Carmen's Dance Shoes in San Diego, CA (no joke on the name). Outstanding customer service. We won't buy shoes anywhere else, even though Carmen's is 2,000 miles from us.
