Get in Motion with this dance sneaker from Sansha. The mesh upper provides the ultimate in breathability, while the split rubber sole allows a full range of flexibility.
In 1982, Franck Raoul-Duval, a 25-year-old Frenchman with a passion for dance and Russian history, created a new type of ballet shoe. After numerous trials and adjustments, he came up with an innovation that changed the lives of dancers everywhere. The split-sole ballet slipper, with its glove-like fit, was born. Sansha now manufactures an extensive range of dance shoes for everything from ballet to jazz, hip-hop to flamenco, and ballroom to tap. Sansha collaborates with dance professionals, teachers and store owners to remain a prominent brand in the dance capitals of the world.

Sansha is known for less expensive (sometimes cheaper) dance footwear. The quality is usually ok, and it's worth the tradeoff for the lower price. A major downside to Sansha is the lack of half sizes. The sizing will either work for you or it won't. I'm a 6 1/2-7 and the 8 is very slightly big for me, but not enough to be uncomfortable. (Note I wear medium weight socks with the shoes - tights or sockless and they'd be too big.)
The shoes are in line with the grippiness of Bloch or Capezio dance sneakers on a standard vinyl dance floor. I teach Irish step dance and the cushioning seems in line with the more expensive Bloch and Capezio brands. Time will tell if they hold up as well. I did have to return one pair due to a manufacturing defect in the sole of the right shoe that made the shoe painful to wear. In general I feel the quality of all these dance sneakers has deteriorated over the past decade. I've had issues with manufacturing defects with Bloch and Capezio, so I don't consider the issue with the Sansha shoe to be a sign that lower price equals lower quality.
I was diligent on getting the sizing right, but they were not the write size. The shoes I got were too small (I wear a men's size 12 street shoe and ordered a 17). I know I could size up and I wrote the manufacturer who suggested I go up a size, but with the slipping issue, too, I will pass.
The shoes look well made and otherwise would have been perfect.
