This is Bloch's professional tap shoe designed with tap icon Jason Samuels Smith. It features a leather upper lined with cashmere to reduce moisture and a double hard leather outsole with triple stacked heel. Steel resonance plates between tap and outsole create optimum depth and pitch of sound. Specially developed metal bonding procedures ensure that screws will not loosen without modification. The heel measures 1.5" and separate slip pads are included. Fitting information: If you want a very snug fit choose your street shoe size, otherwise start up 1 size.
