Updating your Salsa Shoes for Comfort and Safety

Sunday, January 8, 2012

Now that it is the beginning of the year you may have certain New Years resolutions and goals for the next 12 months.  One item that I always like to look at that is part of my dance wardrobe are the shoes that keep my feet moving.  Indeed, regularly updating your salsa shoes is necessary for not just comfort but also safety on the dance floor.

Both men and women can benefit from upgrading their shoes on a regular basis.  The shoes you wear while salsa dancing are important to the movements you make with your feet during the dance and if those shoes are lacking in support in any way it could end up hurting you in the long run.  This is especially true since your salsa shoes absorb many of the impacts from turns and jumps that often accompany salsa dancing.  Of particular note are paying attention to the soles of the shoes and the heel to make sure they are not overlay worn.   The last thing you want to happen to you while you are salsa dancing are for them to fly off your feet because of a damaged strap or heel that is lacking in strength.

So where do you start looking if you are interested in getting new shoes for 2012? One great resource online is EK Clothing, a salsa dance clothier and dance shoe provider.  They have a great array of different styles and colors to choose from (and have a great selection for men’s shoes as well).

You can find your perfect pair by visiting their website, EK Clothing, and choosing the ones that best suit your needs.

Hope to see you all on the dance floor in your new EK Clothing salsa dance shoes!
