Types of Soles

1. LEATHER SOLE

This is a slippery sole for indoor Swing dance. In order to prevent confusion, we should state that this is not a suede leather sole. This is a rigid leather sole.

Dancers prefer leather soles in order to dance smoothly and  make turns and slides easily. By wearing slippery leather sole shoes, dancers lower the chance of injuries on knees and wrists. 

When you select a leather sole, then your shoes are produced with all leather sole. Since we make customized shoes, you can order leather soles with rubber heels.


 

 

2. CASUAL SYNTHETIC NEOLITE SOLE

Neolite is a synthetic sole which is suitable for indoor dance and casual usage. This is not slippery like leather and this is not sticky like rubber. But in general this material is slippery and comfortable for dance.

Dancers select a neolite sole when they do not want too slippery soles and want something medium.

In addition, we use this sole for Vegan customers.

 

 

3. CASUAL SYNTHETIC RUBBER SOLE

Rubber sole is a sticky synthetic and suitable for street usage. We mainly recommend it for casual shoes. However, some dancers prefer rubber soles for specific reasons

(i.e. to make aerials, to dance on slippery dance floors, etc). 

 

 

 

4. EVA SOLE

The softness and flexibility of the soles, combined with the shock absorbing qualities make the Eva sole ideal for dancers.

EVA tends to be softer and lighter than rubber, which means it is more flexible.

Suitable for dance since it is not sticky. Also suitable for everyday usage.

 

 

 

THE TYPE SOLES THAT WE DO ON CUSTOMER REQUEST

 

1. HALF RUBBER and HALF LEATHER HEEL

For those who want a slippery leather sole with a little bit of a brake system, then these heels are perfect for them.

Half rubber heels prevent the excessive slipperiness of the shoes. 

 

2. RUBBER PATCH

Dancers who want less slipperiness sometimes choose a rubber patch.

This is rubber inserted in a rigid leather sole. 

 

3. SUEDE SOLE

Some dancers prefer suede sole due to the specific usage. The sole is made of real suede leather.

This sole is not as durable as a rigid leather sole. In order to make it more durable, we stick suede on a rigid leather.
