What are the soles like? I'd think that proper jazz shoes' soles are not thick enough for normal wear? Mine are split soles.

there ARE jazz shoes out there and they are a thowback to the 80's..
like everything seems to be these days...

capezio is your best bet for the real deal...

tang--your description of brogues is correct i believe...
basically a man's lace up shoe...
not the same thing at all really---jazz shoes are much softer and less structured...


the shoes from the TSE show are the real jazz shoes...

I love these... I have a pair of black soft ones from my dancing days but a pair of white patent ones would be awesome with skinny jeans...

J'adore this kind of shoes! I bought mine (in black, silver and gold) for 20$ each in a flea market!

anyways, most of the canadian stores don't have a men's version. and i hear they are insanely expensive.

do you have any advice as to where they are sold as well? i have been very excited about finding the right pair of lace-ups for the last couple of years and now that they've hit the mainstream, i hope they'll be easier to find.

speaking of these on the runway, i think they're part of the 80's/japanese obsession. definitely...
i'm surprised more designers haven't caught on. "jazz" shoes...(well, whatever they're called) can make a simple dress look quite edgy. plus, they go with everything, imo.

Im a dancer so I have the Bloch jazz shoes but they cant be worn outside of class since the sole is very soft & the ones I have have a split sole... most real dance shoes wont hold up long as street wear. Ive been having a really hard time finding a pair to wear as street wear. I did finally find a white pair but cant really wear white shoes right now can I? Im really searching for a black pair right now... wish I could afford the Louboutin ones or some of those other designer ones.

Could someone explain me how to wear those shoes with a dress or a skirt without your feets looking big?
Thanks!

Hmm...I've only worn them with shorts and over-the-knee skirts...always with a loose blouse [in a brighter color] so the shoes dont get all the attention and therefore look bigger than they are.

ah, you're talking about my favourite kind of shoe:p
(i find long feet very elegant, actually, so i would never make an attempt to make my feet look smaller. i find this similarly puzzling as the popularity of small noses)
