Necessary things


Before thinking about the dress it is advisable to choose the shoes, which are essential to be able to dance at best. The choice on the market is very varied, with rhinestones, open at the tip or closed and of different heights but the important thing is that they must fit you like a glove to be practically perfect for your foot. The heel of the salsa dance shoes should be between 4 to 8 cm and not very thin, but if you are just starting, try a lower and more comfortable shoe. In addition to the heel, there is no less the sole, which must be thin and flexible, have a grip on the foot and be breathable.  Dance shoes need more attention than a normal shoe, after dancing put the shoes in a shoe tree and let them air in a dry place, also do not forget to brush the sole which is the first thing to deteriorate. These little things will make your shoes last longer.


The first piece of advice is to choose a comfortable shoe, it must be soft to avoid that wearing it for a long time can cause discomfort or painful blisters. It is always advisable to buy them in specialized points or any case not online because the shoe must be tried on for a long time and the number may not correspond to what you have for other shoes. For men, the heel varies from 3 to 4 cm if you are a beginner and you don’t feel like trying with a lower heel.
