CLOGGING

White clog shoes with buck taps installed. No split soles. Once you recieve the shoes, please take them to a local shoe cobbler to have tan skid pads installed. Sizing quides can be found on the website. It will take a month to six weeks to recieve the shoes after ordering. If you haven’t received by the time classes start it is ok to wear tap shoes until they arrive. If you have any questions please call the company, they are very helpful.

Two choices to order. These shoes have to be ordered as they are not wholesale. You can ask them to ship you two sizes if you are unsure what size to order. You can also ask current students if you can try on their shoes to find your size.

Ms. Stomper or kids Stomper, these shoes run narrow.

Freestyler women’s or children’s. These shoes generally run true to street shoe size.

Please review the dress code guidelines for each class that your child has enrolled for this year. As a gentle reminder, we ask that students do not come to class with their mid-drifts exposed.
