Men's Aris Allen black wide oxford dance shoes come in EEE width and feature an all-leather sole and heel.
The leather heel has a thick rubber layer in the middle for extra shock absorption (see photo) and foam lined footbed - no insole needed.
Our black wide men's oxford dance shoes with classic styling are an exact copy of 1937 dress shoes.
These are designed for the intermediate / advanced dancer - but they're also great as a second pair for beginners... the ''fastness'' of the sole forces you to ''find your center'' immediately.
We find that because these are extra wide they run about a half size smaller than regular Aris Allen Captoes. So order a half size smaller than your usual men's dress shoe size.
A note about Aris Allen Men's Tango Shoes, Captoes and Wingtips -
These shoes are absolutely 100% handmade. The cutting of the leather is done by hand - not stamped out, the glue is put on with a brush, not a machine, the sewing, while done with a sewing machine, is done one at a time. You can even see the occasional pencil mark!
This means that the shoe on your foot is the product of a craftsman who sees the shoe from start to finish. This also explains why you will find the occasional imperfection. These are not stamped out, they are made just a few at a time.
These are great dance shoes because of the slideable sole and heel, and the comfort you need in a shoe that's going to be on the hardwood all night.
The footbed is lined with foam so it's much more comfortable than many ordinary dress shoes.
Our Aris Allen Raw Sole is either sanded or varnished and after a few hours of wear they become ''raw'' on the bottom and perform a lot like Chrome Leather (suede) which allows you to spin and slide, and still control the floor.
If you find the sole has picked up dirt from the floor and is slowing down, just shuffle your feet on the sidewalk once or twice to refresh it.

Note! Some of the shoes have been tried-on in our store, but never danced in. This might show slightly on the raw leather sole
