Character Shoes Character shoes are used most commonly in jazz and also in theatrical performances such as plays and musical theatre.  They can also be suitable for beginners of flamenco dancing.  They are hard-wearing, comfortable, versatile and give a dancer the perfect amount of flexibility and support to do choreographic combinations over and over again. From the leading brands Katz, So Danca and Roch Valley, our collection of character shoes has ankle straps, t-bar straps and lace up fronts.

Women’s character shoes  are simple in construction, and most often come in the colors black or light tan or taupe. They resemble a heeled Mary Jane, with a strap over the ankle, and a pump front. Alternately, the pump can have a top t-strap. Heel height and width vary, though most shoes have a chunky rather than stiletto type heel. The crucial feature of the shoe is its leather sole, which is perfect for standing, walking, or dancing on stages.

Men’s character shoes look like a typical, undecorated, lace up oxford. They also are most commonly available with leather soles, and may be purchased with taps. Women can also use shoes of this type, especially in jazz dance or tap classes. Most shoes that offer taps come with them unattached, so wearers need only attach them if they want tap shoes.
