Aris Allen Women's ALL Black Canvas Dancing Sneakers feature
flexible suede leather soles which are wonderful to dance on and are
perfect for beginner or advanced dancers.
These black canvas dance sneakers are the perfect practice dance shoes to rehearse your dance steps or to wear to dance lessons.
The insoles are well padded for added comfort and are removable so you can add your own or wear them with orthotics.
These sneakers look cute whether you're in a pair of jeans or your favorite skirt!
These will probably not fit if you have narrow feet because they run very wide in the heel.
- If you own last year's model of this style (which ran 1/2 size large) then you'll want a half size smaller.
- Some of the shoes have been tried-on in our store, but never danced in. This might show slightly on the leather sole
About the Suede Leather Soles:
These Aris Allen Women's Blue Canvas dance sneakers are made with Chrome Suede Leather Soles
(suede tanned with chromium salts) which are wonderful to dance on but
require occasional upkeep (it's usually a problem with catching the edge
on a piece of hardwood that is sticking up on the dance floor).
- If you need to re-glue the chrome leather many people just use
crazy glue gel. We have also found that commercially produced shoe
repair glue (available from the shoe repair shop in your local mall)
- You're not supposed to wear chrome leather soles outside - but
every swing dancer knows that you can make suede soles faster by wearing
them everywhere to get them dirty, then dance in them until they're
shiny on the bottom.
- If you prefer them less zippy you can dull the "mirror finish"
they can get by roughing them up with a wire brush periodically. Just
remember that when they get wet in the rain they won't spin very easily
(conversely - if they're too slippery just spill your drink on the floor
and step in it!).
If you wear 8.5 or smaller you can easily wear these. Just add 1.5 to
your men's size and that's the size you should fit (i.e.: men's size 7 +
1.5 = size women's 8.5 in this style).

These run true to size - but if you're between sizes you'll probably do best in the smaller of the two.
