The Salsette I is a perfect combination of a jazz shoe, a sneaker and a ballroom shoe. This lace up shoe by Sansha is made of a light, durable mesh and suede upper, and is great for a variety of dance disciplines. The suede and leather sole provides easy turning while the rubber heel creates traction for stopping. The full sole is extremely flexible. Imported. Sizes: 4 to 15 Adult Whole Sizes Only Width: M Suggested Fitting: Women - order 1 to 1 1/2 sizes larger than street shoe. Men - order 3 to 4 sizes larger than street shoe.
Please add quantity you wish to purchase in each respective size box.

I used these for my University Dance Show. They worked great for all three pieces I was in (Jazz, HipHop and Kickline). Definitely order a 1/2 to full size larger. I am usually an 8 to 8 1/2. I ordered a 9 and they're perfect. The only complaint is that it's not very easy to tighten them and have them stay molded to your foot, but they are sooo comfortable.

I used regular gym shoes for a Zumba Marathon and my knees were killing me the next day. So I got these dance shoes for up coming Zumba Classes. I wear a 9 to 9.5 in regular gym shoes. So I ordered larger in the dance show figured certainly the 11 would fit. It felt awful and my toes were curled under. The exchange was easy and customer service very helpful. Got the 13 and fit great. Have not worked out in them yet but like how they feel and how light they are and breathable. Should be great. Now just have to return the first pair for a refund because exchanges take longer. So I made a 2nd purchase to get the shoes faster vs. an exchange. Good to know what works faster.

Comments about Sansha Salsette I Dance Sneaker:
This is my second pair. Perfect for line dancing as the soles allow easy turns. Lightweight and comfortable. Good arch support. Take care not to wear outside as the soles are easily damaged and not too durable.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

About Me Practical
I love this shoe. I bought this shoe to wear as practice for my ballroom and Zumba dance classes, and I absolutely love it. This shoe allows me to glide easily across the floor, including carpeted floors when practicing a home. When these wear out, I will definitely buy another pair.
I am enjoying this shoe.

About Me Athletic
The shoes don't come in 1/2 size so if your wear an 8 1/2 purchasing a 9 will work, seems a little snug at first. but they fit great, not too tight.
Great dance shoe
I bought these shoes to use as workout shoes as well as for ballroom class. Its a pretty good shoe. My only complaint I have is that it feels like there's a steel rod in the shoe where the arch is. It was pretty painful so I bought some gel and fabric insoles and put them in. So far so good. I am buying two more pairs I like them so much.
Not good for salsa dancing

Great for dancing.
Great shoe! order size bigger
Not Very Comfortable
from Monrovia, CA
I read a lot of good reviews about this shoe and how they were recommended by some zuma instructors, but after using them for a week, my arches were killing me! I couldn't even bare to use them one more day! I actually had to use some other regular shoes that were much more comfortable until I receive the next pair of zumba shoes I ordered online. I am hoping the next pair (not Salsettes) will be much more comfortable.

hard to pick a size
from Somewhere, PA
See all my reviews
Shoe shopping online can be frustrating so I want to let you know that I wear a size 6 1/2 in a street shoe and I got the 7. They are a 1/2 size too big. So my advice, if your not a true whole size I would avoid this shoe. I think a size 6 would have been too short in the toe, the seven is about an inch too long in the toe and I trip over it when I am dancing! The width (which this shoe has a wide width)is fully adjustable by tightening the laces (thank goodness). The arch is fantastic and very comfortable. Some things are best shopped for when you can try them on. If you haven't ever purchased this shoe before then you should consider getting fitted first. I would have returned them but just not worth the hassel- the shoe is made well and is very comfortable (other than the sizing issue). It is a full sole (not a split sole) and I wear them on a hard wood dance floor and they perform really well, just have to stop tripping over my toes!
