Best Salsa Dance Shoes

The Best Salsa Heel Dance Shoes

With so many styles, fits and choices, choosing the best salsa dance shoes can sometimes be a little confusing, especially if you’re new to dancing. In recent years, manufacturers have utilized evolving technology to create shoes with better designs, better performance and more comfort. + Expand

At Burju, we offer a selection of salsa shoes that have been designed to not only look spectacular, as befitting a salsa dancer but to be supremely comfortable too. And with so many different salsa shoes in our range, we’ve made it easier than ever to find the best salsa shoes for you.

Our salsa shoes are crafted with soft suede soles to enable free movement on the dance floor while providing just the right amount of traction and have an arch construction that allows optimum flexibility for pointing and moving your foot. Plus, they’re designed to give you the balance and confidence to execute and display your salsa techniques correctly.

But how do you find the shoes that are going to turn your moves into some of the most spectacular moves on the floor? It comes down to 4 key elements: fit, style, heel height and fabric.

The key to choosing salsa shoes that will have you dancing like a pro

At Burju, we offer shoes in half sizes so that you can get the best fit for you. As the salsa requires to dance forward on your foot, the correct fit for this type of shoe is to have your toes at the very edge of the shoe even when standing, so that you can ‘use the floor’ to ground yourself. For this reason, we recommend that you opt for a half size smaller than your usual size if you have narrow feet, although you may want to go up half a size if your feet are broader than average.

The style of your shoe is also a significant consideration. While personal preference is a key factor when choosing your new shoes, you may want to pick a style that has straps across the toes, around the ankle and under and around the arch to make your feet feel more secure.

If you have high arches, T-straps may not be the best style for you, while dancers with toes that are uneven in length may find multiple toe straps uncomfortable. If you do have a problem with toes escaping from your shoes, look out for straps with mesh inserts as these can help to prevent your foot or one or more toes ‘popping out’ when you point your foot.

Most serious salsa competitors prefer shoes with a heel height of 3 inches or 3.5 inches which help to create a long leg line. However, if you’re a social dancer who’s purely looking for comfort or a beginner on the floor, you may prefer shoes with a 2.5-inch heel.

When it comes to fabric choice, we offer shoes in leather, satin and suede. Satin is an especially popular choice as it can be dyed to match the color of your outfit. Satin is also one of the most comfortable fabrics to dance in as it stretches to your foot shape without cutting into your skin.

Customise your salsa shoes

Salsa, by its very nature, is a showy, flamboyant dance, and if you want your shoes to match your moves, you may want to consider customizing your shoes. While we do offer an exciting range of salsa shoes, some of which are decorated with crystals and rhinestones, we also offer a customization service so that you can create the best salsa shoes for you.

Low or High Heel Shoes – Which Is Best for Salsa

There are professional dancers out there that can perform and dance just as well on a pair of pumps as a low heel shoe.  So how do you know which type of salsa heels are best for you?  Perhaps these guides will help.

Beginners – If you are a complete beginner or a dancer with moderate skills then it is best to invest in salsa dance shoes with a low heel.  The lower heel is much more comfortable for wear during practice sessions where you are still learning the steps.  Lower heels are also a lot safer since the risk of twisting your ankle is significantly lower.

Preference – As your dance skills improve you will grow a specific preference towards certain heel heights.  If you prefer a high heel, then platform salsa pumps are perfect, and if a lower heel suits your style best, then you will look just as smart and elegant when you buy salsa dancing heels from Burju Shoes.

Professional dancers – Strangely enough, not all professional dancers prefer a higher heel.  Many dancers, especially those with quickly paced salsa routines and a fast tempo prefer a lower heel because of the greater feeling of stability.  But we strongly believe that every professional salsa dancer should own at least one pair of low and one pair of high heel salsa shoes.

Music tempo – For quick paced tempos and dance routines with lots of salsa twists and turns, a lower heel might be much more suitable.  You do need a firm hold on the ground if your feet are constantly moving.
