Appropriate Dancing FootwearThe shoemakers in the footwear department of the Stratford Festival make about 1000 pairs of shoes each year for the actors and dancers in the various productions put on by the popular theater. Since professional dancing is such a serious and athletically demanding activity, the performers often request that their shoes be made to fit certain unique specifications.

For example, for Stratford’s upcoming production of Crazy for You, many of the tap dancers asked that the sizes of their shoes be altered to allow a specific amount of toe room. The expert staff either tailors the shoes themselves or has them made off-site.

It’s always beneficial to make sure that your shoes are the right size, even if you aren’t a dancer. If you need help getting footwear that fits correctly, visit podiatrist Dr. Michael Stein of Foot Doctor of the East Bay. Dr. Stein will instruct you on how to find the best size and style of shoe for your foot type.

Getting the Right Shoe Size

Sometimes it may be difficult finding the right shoe size especially because shoe sizes tend to vary depending on the brand and company you are looking for. A size 6 for one brand may be a size 7 in another. Although many people know their exact shoe size, it can range within 2 sizes depending on where they shop.

So it is important not to always go for a size 7 just because you think you might be a size 7 universally. It is best to try on the shoe and walk around for a bit to see how it fits and how it feels. Comfort is essential and the fitting has to be well otherwise it can lead to blisters, bruises at the back of the ankle and it can also hurt your toes if the shoe is too tight for example.

People walk a lot, so it is important for you to find what is comfortable when it is possible.
