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!!!

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 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 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!

well i have some of the shoes you put as choices:
black & tan pedinis (sandals)
black jazz slip ons

my favorite (other than going barefoot, which i prefer) would have to be my tan pedinis... it doesn't really matter what color, but i really like how they're open & airy. once you start wearing them you don't wanna go bak.

I usually wear tan foot thongs because they allow you to turn and leap and there aren't any heels to get in the way because heels hurt my knees and ankles. Although, I will sometimes wear black slipons because they're comfortable and easy and for competition I have to wear tan pedinis

i couldn't live without my dance sneakers! they allow me better jumps because there is less harsh impact with the floor when I land and they are a lot less slippery than the regular jazz booties thingys. It is amazing how a pair of shoes can complete help or kill the way you dance.

For jazz class I wear black laceups. We are not allowed to wear the hiphop boots in that class. In my opinion, they look bad for certain dances. And my teacher said that the foot does not look as pointed in them. I have a pair of black hiphop boots for dance team though. They provide good support, but I don't think I turn as well.

I have black jazz sneakers ( Bloch of course!), black slip ons and i have tan lace-ups- which i don't wear that often. I like slip-ons heaps better cos they are so comfy as opposed to the lace-ups i reckon. I only wear my sneakers when I'm having a class just for fun, like not an exam class or anything cos we aren't allowed to wear our sneakers for anything.:(

At my studio we have tan sandals for lyrical, black lace ups for jazz, and black slip ons for hip hiop which is competition. It's neat, but it gets confusing. My favorites are the black slip ons because they are easier to break into them!

For rehersals I usually wear socks or I go barefoot (sometimes blace lace-ups, but not very often). But for competitions I am required to wear tan slip-ons (slip-ons so the laces don't come untied, because if they do we lose points).

I always bought lace-up oxfords (which I agree are HIDEOUSLY ugly). Never cared about the color. I just always had one pair with a leather sole and one pair with a full rubber sole. And I had a bunch of sandals. Most of my shoes were capezio only because there was a capezio store close to my house. I never really cared about my shoes.

I have REALLY wide feet, but I never had trouble finding shoes - probably for 2 reasons. 1) I live in Miami, and we have a lot of male dancers here. 2) I really didn't care about my shoes, so I always just bought the first pair that fit.

In my current adult jazz class we do the first part of class (warm-ups, plies, pirouettes etc.) barefoot, or almost, so we (and the teacher) can see better how we are are using our feet and pointing the toes. For this I use dance-paws (which I can rosin up for a little more traction). Then, for across the floor and combinations we use whatever jazz shoes we want. A long time ago I wore black lace-up, leather-soled jazz shoes but they did tend to make the neuroma in my left foot flare up; so I quit using them and switched to my jazz sneakers. I have an ancient (from about 1989) pair of white Capezio dance sneakers, split sole, non-slip rubber bottoms, high top in front but low at the ankle tendon (for easy pointing). They are lace-up then velcro ankle strap which really keeps my narrow-heel and wide-across the ball foot well placed in the shoe with no stress on that neuroma. I don't know what I'll do when they wear out someday.

CAPEZIO PEDINIS ARE THE BEEESTT no joke !! I have been using black slip ons forever and theyre perfectly fine , but OMG as soon as you put the pedinis on, they enhance pretty much everything . it makes your point waaay better , and releve is waaay better . like when your wearing them it is more comfortable to be in releve then flat foot and same with pointing , its more comfortable to point then flex its just natural. they make lines and expecially turns far better i really have no idea why people still use slipons at all
