Buying Dance Shoes in Ottawa

As a former dancer, it was difficult to find dance shoes in Ottawa. Unlike regular shoe stores, where there are 5 in every mall, there were only three stores for dance shoes. Buying shoes online is also tricky if you don't know the brand, how then fit, or how the shoe feels on your foot. Unlike clothes, you cannot take them in if they're too big.

So we are pleased to announce that there is another real, brick & mortar shoe store specializing in dance shoes opening up in the Ottawa area.

The TaggerWear Store, officially opened on October 13th, 2018. It not only sells factory-direct clothing and sportswear, but also sells Very Fine Dancesport shoes.

Very Fine Shoes (www.veryfineshoes.com) has an abundance of styles and colours -- something to fit everyone's tastes. There are shoes for:

  • Ballroom

  • Salsa

  • Latin dance

  • Hip hop

  • Swing

  • Square dance

  • Jazz

The prices range for ladies shoes $85.00 - $129.99, while the men's shoes range from $85.00 - $135.00. (These prices are going up in January 2019 to reflect current freight costs and exchange rates.)

The new Crystal Collection is absolutely gorgeous. Fully stoned shoes in a variety of styles are available to order now. In addition, you can add Rhinestone to your favorite style simply by upgrading the shoe. So any shoe can sparkle.

You can see what we have in inventory by going to our online shop or you can browse through all the shoes at Very Fine and send us a list. We can bring in the shoes you want to buy usually within 10 business days.

Don't forget to come visit our new store -- It's at 41 Grenfell Crescent, #2, Nepean, ON. Our launch starts at Noon and runs until 4:00 pm. (Then we have to get ready for an event downtown Ottawa!)

Parking is free!
