I wear black slip-ons - laceups are SUCH a hassle, and if you ask me, they look really ugly. But some people like them (I have two friends who absolutely refuse to wear slip-ons!). The color really depends on what your studio likes. If they don't have a requirement, I'd get black, because from what I can tell, black is more commonly used. :)

I wear tan and black slip ons. Lace ups if I'm just dancing around the house so I don't mess up my other ones.

I wear black slip on's. I find them so much more comfortable. Like when your on the floor you don't get the laces gabbing into your foot, and you don't need to tie them!!!

I wear both black & tan slipons. They are so much more comfortable than the lace-ups to me, for reasons people have already said. I also have black jazz sneakers I wear occasionaly, but I wouldn't recommend them. :)

depends really what you doing! if your doing heaps of floor work dont choose jazz sneakers. go for the slip on or lace up. the slipons are more commonly used now days. laceups might come undone. if your doing hardly any floor work and alot of up standing funk sorta dance use the sneakers.
i wear my black slipons because most of my dances have HEAPS of floorwork. i spend about 60% of my dance on the floor or upside down!! hehe well thats what it feels like. :D

I use sandals because I think regular jazz shoes are too slippery and they make feet look kinda weird sometimes. Also, onstage, tan sandals continue the line of your leg, instead of cutting it off when it gets to the feet. In class sometimes, I use these things that are made for wearing under shoes for old ladies. lol They cover the ball of your foot and they're like a tubey sock thing

I wear black slipons they are way better then the lace ups. With the lace ups you always have to rush to get them on. I just dont like them

I normally wear my jazz sneakers, but I do have a pair of black lace-up jazz shoes. Also, a greater part of my jazz training is mainly commercial- so even for things like slides, the jazz sneakers are fine- they also look better for the kind of work I do. Have I mentioned that you can also wear them for hiphop/funk, and that glory upon glories, you can WEAR THEM OUTSIDE!!! Hurrah!!!

But for a lot of jazz technique I'll actually just wear half-socks (can't be bothered changing shoes half the time, I'm so lazy!) then change into the jazz sneakers when it's time for axels/barrels etc.

we use pedinis mainly... they give u some lift & theyre open... if u get em 2 big, its hard 2 leap, but turns r great in them!

i prefer 2 dance barefoot no matter what tho...

jazz slip ons r great... try blochs or theatricals (cheap & durable)

get what most ppl @ yur studio have!

I have black/red jazz boots (or some people call them sneakers) I love them. They are soon easy to dance in and are very comfy!

I wear the black, split sole sneakers! I really like them. They provide awesome support and yet they're really flexible. the only thing that you really have to get use to with them is that they can be really slippery! So be careful!

Mostly I wear my Bloch jazz/hip hop boots, but that's when I am teaching because its easier to do hip hop in tthem (easier on the toes) but when I am dancing I prefer to wear black pendinis (the sandal type) I love the look of the tan ones on stage with a nice bright costume because the tan melds into the color of the nude tights, its a much cleaner look i think.
