After being so amazed at the difference my dance connection custom orthotics made in my level of foot comfort on the dance floor, I decided to order my first pair of comfort dance shoes. Because I wanted the option of wearing regular pantyhose with the reinforced toe and dressing up to go out dancing, I selected the “braid” style. a friend of mine who dances competitively to just a silver as a good neutral color. The 2.2 inch block heel with a nice contour felt sturdy, but still looks feminine. it took about 3 months for the shoes to be delivered to my home as promised. They fit perfectly and are compatible with my essential custom orthotics. Immediately, I began receiving compliments from both men and women when I wore them dancing – – particularly from ballroom dancers. Because I was so pleased with my first pair of custom comfort shoes, I have since ordered another pair. This time, the “braid” will be made any combination of black patent leather and a black sparkly material, along with the same sturdy block heel. they will be perfect for my little black dress on New Years Eve along with black hosiery. Finally, I must commend Grant Austin and his team for providing superior customer service both before and after the sale. As a professional dance champion himself, Grant understands the needs of his customers and stand behind all of the quality of products sold by him and his team.
