Flamenco Shoes:
From what I have heard, Sansha runs small (like one shoe size smaller than street shoe). Be sure to check sizing and talk to Customer Service before purchasing. Suede are a popular buy for those that have wider feet.  Leather for those that have narrow feet.  https://www.nydancestore.com/catalog/frontend/category/id/64
