Presenting the beautiful Kira – a new shoe for women

Kira

How beautiful is Kira? We are incredibly excited to present one of our favourite shoes from the latest spring 2017 women’s dance shoe collection! The Kira was designed for Argentine Tango, salsa, and all other types of Latin dance – this shoe is ready to get you on the dance floor to dazzle your audience!

The open toe is perfectly on point for Latin styles of dance and will help you grip the floor, while still being incredibly elegant and poised during your performance. The light lace and braided details really steal the show when it comes to this gorgeous shoe though. The combination is so delicate, yet impactful!

The single wrap around strap with single buckle truly takes this shoe to another level while providing incredible support. This is a shoe you can comfortably wear for hours at a time while gliding effortlessly across the dance floor.

Of course, this shoe features our comfortable and supportive suede sole that is perfect for both competition or an evening out to the salsa club.

We’re so excited about all of our shoes in the spring 2017 collection, but the Kira stands out with its unique styling and shoe stopping good looks!

Chloe: The latest women’s dance shoe from iLoveDanceShoes

ilds_2017_01_26-121-modifier-logoThe latest collection for spring from iLoveDanceShoes is in and we are so excited about some of the new styles we are adding to our site!

The Chloe dance shoe for women is one we are particularly excited to be offering. This shoe, is very similar to one of our previous best sellers, the Fantisia, except it has a solid sole, rather than a split sole.

The solid sole provides incredible support for dancers. This shoe is very comfortable and made out of cotton, which breathes very well. You’ll be able to wear this shoe for long periods of time for both practice and performances.

The beautiful tartan pattern will easily match with any outfit in your wardrobe and you’ll quickly have everyone’s eyes on you as you hit the dance floor.

We’re excited to be offering the Chloe along with the rest of the spring 2017 collection from iLoveDanceShoes!
