Ballroom shoes are characterised by suede soles.
The typical men's ballroom shoe is lace-up with an inch heel and patent leather uppers.
Ladies' ballroom shoes are typically court shoes with 2 inch heels. These are often made of a fabric which can be coloured to coordinate with the dancer's outfit.
Latin American ballroom dancing means a slightly different style of shoe. Latin American shoes have a higher heel which is designed to allow the dancer's weight to shift more easily onto their toes. The typical ballroom heel is designed with a shorter heel to evenly distribute weight across the foot which better suits this style of dance.
Latin dance shoes also allow for more flexibility than ballroom shoes. Women's Latin shoes have 2,5-inch to 3-inch heels typically and are usually open-toed and strapped. Even the men's versions also normally have around a 2-inch high heel.
