    outer looks verses actual quality on stage

    Posted by Unknown on 20th Feb 2015

    Great sturdy quality. My students seem to favor the feel of this kind when they dance, as do I. I definitely would recommend the buckle style as it tends to hold much better under the strain it comes under during actual foot stamping. As stage manager, "Wardrobe malfunctions" are my biggest pet peeve.

    Problem with velcro closure

    Posted by CM, Huntington Beach, California on 30th Nov 2014

    I can't comment on the sound of the bells because I have not experienced them before. I was not happy with the velcro closure as the edges of the velcro rubbed against the ankle and was very uncomfortable. I revised the velcro closure by removing the tabs and re sewing, my own design. I will be giving them as a Christmas gift to my daughter and I'm sure she will be delighted. I would probably buy a different type of closure in hindsight.

    Very beautiful but does not make much sound as leather one. My daughter liked pretty red color without any scratches
