Ok for Practica
Igor - Toronto (Tuesday, May 29, 2012)
This is a decent pair of shoes with Ok craftsmanship. The suede is soft, the leather sole is rather rigid, with good support. The back is more rigid than it should`ve been for dancing shoes, without any cushion. Stitching quality is average. The usual problem with black suede is that as good as it looks, it immediately becomes stained on a milonga, and requires constant attention. Leather (or patent leather toes and heels with suede inserts) is definitely recommended over all-suede construction. E.g. for the first pair of tango shoes they may look just perfect, however, compared with, say, a good pair of ballroom shoes from a respected British or Italian manufacturer they loose quite significantly.
