The right salsa dance shoe can be hard to find and confusing at first. It's
not like buying a sneaker or an ordinary dress shoe because it must fit perfectly.
If the shoe is too big, your foot could slide around or the shoe may come off while
you dance. If the shoe is too small, your toes will be too squashed and the shoe
will be too uncomfortable to wear.
Women's Salsa Dance Shoe Fitment
When you try on shoes, you need to look for a shoes that are snug when you first
try them on. Your toes should not be hanging out and the straps should hold the
shoe snugly to your foot the whole time. For some women, the pinky toe will hang
out of the shoe when you step down. If you don't want your toe touching
the floor, look for a salsa dance shoe with a mesh like the one shown below.

If you don't get a shoe that is snug when new, you may find out later that the
shoe will stretch and it will be too big. This is especially true for a women's
salsa dance shoe.
Men's Salsa Dancing Shoe Fitment
The same thing holds true for men's shoes. When you try on shoes, look for shoes
that are snug when you first try them on. When you try dance shoes it is critical
to wear socks that you will normally wear with the shoes. Some
of your toes should touch the front of the shoe and your foot should be hugged by
the rest of the shoe. Your toes should only be slightly bent from the natural position
and should not feel overly uncomfortable when you stand up and put pressure on the
balls of your feet. Also, you should not be able to stick any fingers behind
your heel. This is an indication that the shoe is too big.
Why buy dance shoes in the first place?
Salsa dance shoes are special because unlike sneakers, dance shoes have suede soles
that allow you to spin more freely. This free motion prevents your joints from
twisting keeping you free from injury.
