[Unisex Jazz Shoes] [Taygra Range] [Men's Dance Shoes] [Ladies Dance Shoes]

Wearing The Correct Foootwear is Essential

Smooth Salsa would like you to get the most out of your dancing so I have compiled a range of shoes which should help, making your dancing experience easier. I must have spent an eternity searching Amazon for dance shoes, filtering out a selected few, making it easier for you to decide.

Personally, I would recommend those who starting out to purchase a Split Sole Jazz Shoe. These shoes are without doubt the most preferred dancing shoe on the Salsa scene today and have been for the past 15 years. I have been using them for 20 years and you will still find me today teaching in the classic Jazz Shoe.

There are a few different options when selecting Jazz Shoes and they are:

Rubber Sole

This is okay and a nice all-rounder, harder wearing, meaning they will last longer

Suede Sole

Suede Soles are a great option as they give you that freedom to execute spins easier but they do collect dust from the floor and require brushing to keep the suede in good condition.

Full Sole

A full soled shoe is a shoe which is just like your average shoe with a normal sole and normal heel, this can restrict foot movement a little, making some steps a little more difficult to execute.

Split Sole

Split sole is where the Sole of the shoe only covers the front ¾ of the shoe, starting from middle to front, you then have a separate heel. This type of shoe gives more manoeuvrability whilst dancing and is my preferred choice.

The formal shoes are also a great choice as well and give a better impression when wanting to look that little bit more glamourous dressing up, however, they are more expensive.

All prices were correct at time of listing but I will do my best to keep an eye open to try and ensure prices are correct.

From the makers of the classic Jingas, take a look at the Taygra Range!

Taygras have a slimline sole made from injection-moulded, recycled PVC. Unlike rubber the hard non–porous soles generate little friction. The base is moulded into a narrow grip providing the balance of enough slip to spin with ease yet enough grip to stay in full control.

All of the Taygra shoes I have selected below have the slimline sole which should be easier to dance in. The range of colours is very broad but they don't all support the slimline sole.

Oh don't assume that these are men's shoes as some retailers advertise a lot of the slimline range as unisex
