Trying on

We would like you to be completely satisfied with our products, that is why we highly recommend you while purchasing or immediately after receiving your shoes by post to try them on carefully. Only after that you can make a final decision whether it fits you.

  • Please stand on a clean and firm surface when trying your shoes on in order to prevent soiling and scratching of the soles. Keep in mind that soiled or used shoes cannot be returned or exchanged. We do not recommend you trying your shoes on soft surfaces such as carpet, linoleum (with a soft base), etc., because that will give you a false feeling of shoe softness.
  • As feet are different in size and shape from each other, it is very important to try on both shoes simultaneously.
  • Carry the weight of body sequentially on the right and on the left foot. Stand on the ball of the foot and step forward and backward to feel the pressure of the shoes to your feet while carrying the weight.

After that the shoes trying-on procedure should be stopped, because further random actions may lead to their unintentional spoiling, and in case you are not completely satisfied with your shoes, you will not be able to exchange them or return.

Please pay attention to the following information and recommendations

  • To provide proper stability on the floor, dance shoes should fit tightly, but without any painful sensations. You should pay special attention to the feeling in your heel, because excessive side pressure of a heel may lead later to an intense pain, and rigid conformity from the counter's apex side may lead to a painful injury in a tendon area. Even if your shoes fit quite tightly, this feeling will disappear after three or four practices. When shoes initially fit loosely, later on they lose their shape because of an intensive use and can not provide a tight foot grasp.
  • Try to use too soft shoes as few as possible, because they do not possess frame properties (a long-term capacity to keep the initial shoe shape and thereby grasp a foot tightly), and this will lead to disappointing injuries and will not let you preserve your feet healthy for years to come.
  • In the closed men's and ladies' shoes a big toe should be placed as close as possible to the inner shoe edge, but you should feel comfortable, that is why a nail of a big toe should not set against the upper shoe material. In ladies' strap shoes a big toe should cover an insole completely, if we look from above. It is also recommended for a toe to go beyond a sole edge. That will give you a possibility to control the line of a stretched toe.
  • Pay attention to an existing problem of heel protectors use. A heel height, the angle of inclination of a heel topside, and a correct foot balancing are connected with complex calculations which are used in shoe lasts and heels production. Remember that the use of heel protectors increases a heel height by 4—5 mm on average. As a result, the direction of the load to the heel fastener is changed, and this may lead to a fast heel loosening or destruction.

Rules of Operation:

  • Dancing shoes are designed and manufactured exclusively for operation on parquet and other smooth surfaces with uneven joints not exceeding 0.3 mm, treated with wax mastics, oil, nitro or epoxy varnishes (paints) or having other chemical non-abrasive coatings. Do not use on unpainted wooden surfaces (except for folk dance shoes), concrete, asphalt and other abrasive coatings.
  • Don't dampen the surface of the sole for better grip on the parquet surface or apply castor oil to the sole for the same purpose.
  • Don't use the upper part of the shoe as a working surface (various sliding of the toe or side part of the shoe upper on the floor surface).
  • To clean or stain the surface of the shoes, only special products are used in accordance with the instructions for their use.
  • For mechanical cleaning of the soles from the accumulated dirt and ruffling the lint for better adhesion to the parquet surface, special cord brushes produced by "ECKSE" are used.
  • Immediately after use, dry your shoes in natural conditions for at least 12 hours at a temperature of at least 20°C. Do not over dry your shoes, as this will drastically reduce their service life.
  • Don't heat dry your shoes on radiators, ovens, hair dryers, etc. to avoid damage to the soles attachment strength.
