Shop retro vintage dance shoes in the era of the 1920s, 1930s, 1940s, and 1950s. These shoes are designed for swing dance, lindy hop, vintage ballroom, ’20s Charleston, Balboa, and more. Heeled character shoes, T strap 20s shoes, two-tone Oxfords or saddle shoes, penny loafers, peep toe sandals, and wedges work well for women. Low heels are easier to dance in — save the high heels for performance. For practice, try dance sneakers or original Keds or Converse, which are popular swing dance shoes.
Men’s swing dance shoes come in lace up dance Oxfords, saddle shoes, character shoes, and black and white wingtip dance shoes. You can find these same styles made for tap dancers. Most practice dance sneakers come in men’s sizes as well. Look here for only men’s vintage dance shoes.
