Tap dance shoes for professionals and students; classic black tap shoes, fully leather with block heel and Tele Tone® taps; rubber non-slip patches and cushioned socklining; a tap shoe versatile enough for tap and other dances such as clogging and even square dancing – that’s just part of what Capezio has to offer, and what Ladies Wedge Shoes is excited to show you this week. Yes, we love our low wedge sandals for the beach and our high heeled wedges for eveningwear, but we also love to dance!
Mens and Women’s Tap Shoes Online
The classic buckle bar tap shoe for ladies only costs about £44.98 if you’re in the UK, or about 53 euros elsewhere in Europe. They can be ordered online from the tap dancing shoes experts known as Capezio. The mens Oxford style is a little more expensive, about £60, and offer a scored leather sole and a leather heel as well as an absorbent socklining. These black tap shoes are ideal for using in a variety of theatrical performances or working in tap.
There are also student and junior tap shoes Capezio creates that are lightweight and supple and very affordable, starting at under £20 and going up to £30 and £40 for a variety of designs. Some can also be used for classical dance training and ballroom dancing as well as tap. Tap dancing shoes can be created to measure and customized with nails and screws for taps and the trademark Tele Tone heel and toe taps as well as toe tap boards.
Cheapest Tap Shoe For Kids and Beginners
The most affordable designs are the jelly tap shoes, which are made from injected PVC, and also are enhanced with glitter and a fun bubble gum aroma. They have simple, yet effective, aluminum taps, and have a pretty little ribbon. Ideal for children in cute pink or classic black, these tap dance shoes cost only £5!
Adult and Professional Tap Shoes
For just over £70, there are the Teletone II Rayo, which are from the Premier collection and feature such things as a tunable tap, full leather shoe, including the sole, foamy cushioning inside, padded collar, and other comfort features that those who are serious about tapping will appreciate.
The top of the line designs are the tap shoes Capezio offers that are genuine professional quality, including kid skin leather that is hand stitched, and taps that are custom added to the heel and toe as required. These are naturally the most expensive, but well worth the £140 that they cost. Please be aware that when selecting this professional tap shoe design, the taps themselves are not included but purchased separately.
There are some affordable alternatives to the top models, such as the Hoof Master design that is just £12, and also offers the classic Oxford look and a leather upper and the Tele Tone taps.
Other Designs For Dancers
The split sole tap is a versatile choice for dancers who need a little more flexibility. These offer the famous Tele Tone taps as the others but are connected to the shoe with a fiberboard and feature things like a box toe and other little extras for a variety of dance techniques. These tap dance shoes are midrange priced, just over £60.
Aside from the collections of tap dance shoes, Capezio also has jazz shoes, ballet slippers and other footwear for dancers and performers. All their products are available online through a very user-friendly website that is accessible across Europe in a variety of languages.
