Aris Allen Swishy Skirt

  • Our Women's Red Swishy A-Line Dance Skirt swishes when you swivel.
     
  • Knit fabric and 6-panel A-line shape makes this a great all around basic skirt for swing dancing.

  • Easy care knit polyester. Machine Washable
  • Because they're Aline, these skirts are not particularly "spinnable", but because they're knit polyester, when you stop spinning they wrap around you then drop in the blink of an eye - quite a striking effect.

  • These skirts are unlined and have a 1 1/2" elastic waistband and a 3/4" hem.
  • Available in Red Only
  • Available in Small, Medium, Large & XLarge

made to fit men of average height.

  • Rise: 14.5" (the length from waistband to crotch)

  • Entire length is approx 45-46"
    (measure the entire length of a pair of your own dress pants if you're not sure these will fit)

Aris Allen 2055 BW Athletic Mary Jane
Aris Allen 2055-BK Wingtip Athletic Mary Jane 
Athletic Wingtip Mary Jane
$49.95
  • These are adorable Wingtip Mary Janes and have a very low heel and suede-bottom sole.
  • Mary Janes are great dance shoes as they have a strap that allows you to control the fit at your instep.
  • The upper has perforations around the wingtip and heel cup - just dressy enough to wear when you're dressing up.
  • Made with flexible suede-bottom soles and a soft foam footbed which is perfect for dancers of all skill levels. The design of these - with the low heel and strap - gives you almost cat-like agility on the dance floor.
  • Aris Allen is known for making vintage style swing dance shoes and reproduction models that are more authentic equipment for dancing swing than ordinary ballroom shoes are. Their philosophy being that your dancing will look more authentic if you wear the same style of shoes the inventors of the dance were wearing. And if you can't do that then you'd better be in something comfortable because swing dancing is like running track :)
  • NOTE: We are discontinuing this line of dance shoes, but we have a limited number in limited sizes. See order form below or call us at (866) 216-0220 before ordering.

1930's Satin d'Orsay T-Strap
$39.95

  • These Aris Allen Swing Dance Shoes are a perfect copy of a 1930s shoe and have a suede-bottom sole with a 2.5" heel.
  • The original was a vintage pair of d'Orsay Pumps made in Paris, France in the 1930s.
  • Looks absoluetly dead-sexy on the dance floor - has an elegant, sophisticated feel to it.

Aris Allen 8077-BK  
1920's Satin d'Orsay Dance Sandal
$49.95
  • These are an exact copy of an adorable grosgrain dance sandal from the 1920s. This model is the “little black dress of shoes” that you can wear with anything and dance or stand in comfort for hours even when dressed to the nines, and, because of its classic styling, will never go out of style.
  • The short, chunky heel that makes it so stable for dancing is called a Military Heel and was quite common on Jazz Age shoes.
  • The almost-to-the-sole cutouts keep your toes from sticking through (anyone who has danced in a sandal with straps or cutouts on the vamp hates it when their little toe sticks out between the straps on the front... this model is solid at the bottom of the vamp - keeping that from being a problem).
  • Made with flexible suede-bottom soles and heels and a soft foam footbed which is perfect for dancers of all skill levels.

  • Features the Aris Allen Raw Sole: a flexible leather sole and heel with a rubber layer in the middle of the heel for extra shock absorption.
  • The footbed is lined with foam so it's much more comfortable and supportive than most ordinary dance shoes.

Aris Allen 177-BK Dance Snealer 
Men's Retro Running Shoe Dance Sneaker
$59.95
  • This style features a Suede Sole and is styled like an old school running shoe.
  • Flexible sole. Light as a feather (not kidding!).
  • The insole is made from molded foam so it's much more comfortable and supportive than most ordinary dance shoes. And it's removable! Which means that you can get a custom fit by replacing the insole with one that you've purchased to custom fit your foot (or add arch support or use orthotics, etc.) or just wear them as is.
  • Because of its light weight and suede sole you will be surefooted on the dance floor while still being able to slide and spin. Now you can look like you're wearing ordinary retro sneakers without endangering your knees by dancing on rubber soles
