I remember being asked this question once and I was not readily able to answer. I had to ask friends and colleagues who were more into dancing than me. Aside from the occasional party with friends at Singapore dance clubs, I am not really fond of dancing. You could say I have two left feet! For this question, I looked into their recommendations and came up with this list of best places to buy dancing shoes in Singapore. Hope this helps!
Golden River Shoe is a family-run business that was established more than 36 years ago. They sell popular UK brands, Prazo and Roby. They also offer customized dance shoes that are suitable for various genres like tango, salsa, cha-cha, waltz, samba, and many more. Whether you are a beginner or a professional dancer, Golden River Shoe is worth a visit to see if they have what you are looking for. You can even consult with the owners who are very hands on with their business. One of my friends, who is a salsa dance club member, is a loyal customer of Golden River Shoe. She came in once and found her favorite pair of dancing shoes after receiving very helpful tips and suggestions from the owners. Talk about personalized service!
