Shoes for Dancing Salsa

The ideal shoe to dance salsa in is a slippery shoe, so as to release any stress one could possibly exercise on the knees.

Due to the wooden spring-loaded floor in our studio, we however have to request that no-one dance with shoes of which the heel is small.  Even though a classic woman's shoe would look as such, the heels will unfortunately damage the floor during turns.  So please ensure that the heel of your shoe is of adequate size.
