My latin shoes were falling apart, and I thought, "Well, poop. I can wear my old skanky ones which make me fall, but at least they're not broken...but I wonder if there's any place online that sells dance shoes that would get here in time..." And a google search later, that website appeared. The shoes arrived 3 days after ordering, no shipping cost, and they fit beautifully. Hurrah!
