I’d like to get a pair of ballroom dance shoes, what should I look for?

For guys, your first pair should be regular, non-patent, leather in a standard heel. Because of the softness of the leather, the shoes will stretch more than normal, so some dancers get a half size smaller than standard street shoes. For girls, we recommend any heels as long as they aren’t higher than 2.5 inches. That said, you may be more comfortable in flats, so choose whatever works best for you!  In addition, we always recommend a nude or bronze colored shoe for your first pair.
