Anonymous said: What tap shoes are the best tap shoes?
There are a lot of different opinions here haha I don’t think one tap shoe is really the “best tap shoe” but Miller and Ben tap shoes tend to be pretty popular as well as k360s. But I just stick to simple bloch tap shoes. It’s all about preference really.
Anonymous said: Um I know we aren't really talking about tap shoes anymore, but I just prefer very hard sole shoes. I have 5 pairs of Miller and Ben's and they are so worth the money. With harder soles it's safer for your feet and you'll find it makes it easier to hit all of your sounds. Although breaking in Miller and Ben's is torture, once you get through those 3 months they are literally heaven. They're an excellent investment for those who like hard soled tap shoes!
Lol the tap shoe discourse shall never end!

I have capezio k360s w/ the savior buildup by since they're expensive, I'd go with either the capezio xtreme taps or whatever classic oxford build up shoe they have. Also. Capezio has a much better sound quality than Bloch shoes do-I've used both!!
Yeahhh team Capezio for life! Thanks! :)
Anonymous said: I'm from the east coast and full soles are definitely looked upon as more advanced and split soles are seen as more of a competition tap which is definitely more jazz based and seldom will you see a good rhythm tap dancer at a competition around here. Split soles basically make it easier to point your feet or do toe stands.
And the full vs. split sole debate continues! Thanks! :)
(Even though I suppose it’s not really a debate. I just really wanted to say that.)
