Question: I'm going salsa dancing and all my shoes have rubber soles!. Can I wear them anyway!?
Best Answer - Chosen by Asker:
Rubber soles will make it rather hard to dance properly and they can be a bit of a hazard!. If you're just going out dancing this once, I'd still go!. However, if you plan on doing a bit of dancing, you could look into having suede soles put on a pair of dress shoes!. A pair of Cuban style dance shoes would run you around $50!.00!. Save your dance shoes for dancing; don't wear them outdoors!.

Good luck and have fun!Www@QuestionHome@Com

I wouldn't recommend it!. From what I've heard, the reason a lot of dancers don't wear rubber soles is because it causes too much friction!. When you're dancing, you usually want less!. I recommend shoes with a suede or leather sole!.

My instructor and other instructors, from my knowledge, prefer suede shoes- simply because they make better dance shoes!.

I have danced with sneakers/vans and other types of shoes, and trust me- it makes a huge difference!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

Yes, since you don't have any other options!. But be careful - don't twist your ankle!. Rubber soles are more dangerous to beginners that for trained dancers!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

no you cann't!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

I would suggest leather soled shoes!. Rubber shoe have too much grip and you can injure yourself!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
