    I love tap dancing and there are times when I am on a hard floor and at the spur of the moment, i will feel a rhythm and do a few steps and combinations. I do have several pair of tap shoes, but when I go shopping for everyday street shoes, I always look at the soles and heels to see if they are hard enough to produce a sound on the floor should I feel the need to tap. BASS shoes have great soles and heels for tapping without taps on.

    You forgot checking one’s posture in any mirror,or storefront glass reflection, anywhere.
