So What Happened?

Thank you for all of your suggestions. I found a pair at Payless. I never even knew they sold them. They weren't too expensive and my daughter loves them. She just keeps looking at them and asking when her class starts. Thanks again.

Because the grow so fast at this age you can usually piock up dance shoes that have barely been used at the resell shops.

I would recommend buying them used. They use them for such a short period of time! Kangaroo Kids on Manchester often has a good selection of used dance shoes - both black and tan. If you'd rather buy new, there is a place called Weissman's (6730 Manchester). I bought my daughter some shoes there and they seemed pretty reasonable. Good Luck!

Check and make sure your dance studio does not require specific shoes first. If not, payless or resale! I've had 6 pairs of payless over the years for my daughter and they have yet to wear out!

I've seen them at Kids Again in Florissant (resale shop).

Hi A.,

We got our daughters at Pay Less Shoes.
They had several sizes and if one store doesn't they checked the other stores for us.

Hope it helps

Payless is great. Not too expensive if they wind up changing their mind about dancing.
