Shall We Name the Shoes??

Saturday, June 14, 2014

After regularly dancing with my husband for over a year, I finally found real ballroom dancing shoes that fit me. They have leather soles. You are suppose to only wear them on the dance floor, so I designated my Disney Princess Half Marathon net bag for carrying them around. Here's a picture

They felt very good on my feet, much better than the shoes I have been wearing, most of which are too loose or too tight or not supportive enough or sticks to the floor and limits movement. (For Polk County Team, I found them very reasonably at Etoile Dance store on the south side of Edgewood Drive in Lakeland, just two blocks west of Lakeland Highlands Road. The store is only open 3pm-8pm.) This shoe style is also available in black, and I may just go ahead and get both colors.

In keeping with my good SparkFriend ONEKIDSMOM 's fun habit of naming her fitness gear, I'm considering naming my dance shoes. Darla Dancers? Maybe. Twinkletoes? Nah, isn't me. Strapped Strutters? Hmmm. Any suggestions?

    Twinkle Toes gets my vote. A wonderful lady in our morning aerobics class was a professional ballerina and we call her twinkle for shore. Great shoes! I hope you enjoy wearing them! emoticon emoticon emoticon Does Gary get to have a matching pair??? Or perhaps a pair in orange and white!

    Interesting color! We name everything too, cars and our travel trailer. I too would have to vote for "slenderella slippers!'

    Very nice dance shoes!! (I've got some too and they do make such a difference . . . support, slide, and just "feeling pretty" as well!!).

You'll be a veritable "goddess of dance" in those -- so how about Terpsichore?

    So important to have the correct shoes if you are going to take dancing seriously. I bet it will make it even more enjoyable.

    So glad you got these proper dance shoes! When I took up Zumba, I found it hard on the knees, but when I got shoes specially made for it, was a huge difference and now I can pivot and slide with the best of them!
Enjoy! I will bet you look great in them!
Happy Dancing!

    I own a pair of wonderful dress shoes with leather soles. These are regular dress shoes from years ago. I have had them resoled several times, which is something you can do when the soles are leather. These shoes are at least 15 years old and still going strong.

    Love this! My husband and I have talked about doing ballroom dance together someday. Someday sooner rather than later. How wonderful.

Hmmm, names... I am a huge fan of Dancing with the Stars, so I'd name them after some of the female professionals on that show! How about Cheryl and Karina? Or Emma and Peta? emoticon

    Cute shoes! Even better that they are functional for the purpose they were designed for. Since my spark friends played along with my name-game, I surely play along with yours. How about Gilded Gliders? Slenderella's Slippers? (Gotta get you in there as the Princess you are!) emoticon
