Classic and contemporary dancers flex, bend and rotate across the dance floor pushing footwear constructions to their limits. Brands are also investing in design and development processes, creating beautifully crafted men’s, women’s and kids silhouettes.

Comfort footwear was once seen as ugly but now with dancer endorsements styles are seen under a new light. Stylish, directional and practical the comfort market has upped its game.
