Swing Shoes

I love swing dancing because the shoes are so comfy! I can dance for days and my feet won’t hurt.

If you are just starting out and don't have much $ you can buy some Ked knock offs that fit well and take them to a cobbler. Ask him to shave down the bottom enough to make them flexible and suede them for you. Miracle Shoe Care Center or Star Shoe Service can do this for you.
