It's a very well put together shoe. My daughter had her last pair for 3 years until she lost one of them at a competition. They are soft and comfortable and lasts for years.

For being a wide shoe, I felt like my foot was smashed a little. I purchased leather so it would eventually stretch a little. The shoe is great to practice ballroom.
