Mine were these stupid roller skate looking ones with no laces, but I loved em. Once they retired I turned one of the taps into a keychain which is still being used. May you live on forever, tap shoes. :)

Mine were black with little cut out hearts punched out around the top. I guess the shoes came with the class, because the only part of class I remember is the teacher dumping a whole lot of tap shoes in the middle of the room. I spotted those, and decided that they were mine and that they were going to fit perfectly before I even had them in my hand.

I joined the pre-team at my dance school and tap was required. So I got the same kind of shoes I have now and I've been tapping ever since.

Boring ones, Energetiks low heels. But I didn't start until I was 15 or so and they were the required shoes for beginners at my studio.

That's an awesome idea about the tap keyring, I so want to try that when my current shoes get retired. I've had them for 5 years and they've been fantastic.

I vaguely remember my first pair as being white canvas type shoes that otherwise looked similar to Majere's picture. If I had any before those, I don't remember them. :)

My first pair when I returned to dancing a few years ago were almost identical to the picture, I have quite small feet so bought a cheap pair second hand from the kids section on eBay. Once I knew I was going to keep going, I treated myself to a pair of Capezio West End, which are still going strong.

Edited by GotThePointe (243546) on 2012-07-15 12:13:35 I wrote Makere instead of Majere :)
Mine looked like Majere' s, except for the pink insole. I remember I didn't like the sound very much.

Oh yes. $9.97 from Wal-Mart with that tacky patent leather and the teeney taps on each end of the shoe. I was very proud of them :)

majere, I had basically the same pair. I loved them. The coolest part was getting to change the ribbons for various recitals to match the costume!!

I loved tappin'
