Do Dance shoes fit the same as street shoes?
This is a tricky one. Some do some don't. All Child shoes fit very close to Street shoes, adult ones vary with each shoe. If you are unsure make sure to ask. A proper fit is very important to dancers at every level.
What's the difference between the shoes we sell and the shoes "non-dance stores" sell?
The biggest difference is the materials they are made of. If the material is too tough it not only restricts the muscles in the feet but can strengthen the foot in the wrong places. If the material is too flimsy it limits muscle development in the foot which is very important, especially in young dancers.

Is everything you have on your website the same as what you have in store?
