Modern dance shoes for the street with street-ready leather soles
. If you like to dance, you are probably already familiar with the incomparably comfortable dance shoes from Werner Kern. But did you know that many of our dance shoes are also suitable for the street because they have a street-ready leather sole? So in the future, if you don't want to take off your street dance shoes after a long evening of dancing, you can be completely unconcerned with our models - and also enjoy that feather-light feeling on the way home. In addition, the smooth leather sole of our street dance shoes makes dancing on the dance floor much easier, especially in direct comparison with usual street shoes.
We have been developing and manufacturing high-quality dance shoes for more than 50 years.
Many manufacturers develop and produce shoes for the street. At Werner Kern, we have been concentrating on designing, manufacturing and selling special dance shoes for more than five decades. We develop our dance shoes with fits that have been tried and tested by thousands of dancers for many years and decades, and that we have constantly refined. A great deal of experience and attention to detail and traditional craftsmanship goes into every pair of street-ready dance shoes.
Our dance shoes are made from high-quality goatskin, which is considered by connoisseurs to be one of the most valuable types of leather in the world. For this reason, it is mainly used to make high-quality shoes or accessories, such as our dance shoes. For the street, we have also integrated a street-ready outsole made of resistant nubuck leather in some models, so that you can also wear our dance shoes for the street on your way to the dance hall without hesitation.
Like all our dance shoes, the street-soled models are also equipped with a soft, elastic and shock-absorbing midsole. In combination with shock-absorbing heel cushioning and special heel patches, our dance shoes absorb shocks, for example during jumps, and are thus gentle on ligaments and joints. With supportive elements and a snug fit, our dance shoes offer every foot a secure and firm hold and thus outstanding wearing comfort.
Dance shoes are not normal shoes. And our dance shoes are no ordinary dance shoes. Our dance shoes are handmade in Italy by experienced shoemakers with great attention to detail. In addition to long-term relationships with our suppliers and shoemakers, we focus above all on the outstanding quality of all materials. This applies to the noble upper leather (e.g. velvet goat or lamb nappa) as well as to all other elements from which our dance shoes are made, e.g. heels, soles and decorative elements. Wherever possible, we source these from regional craftsmen's workshops that have been living old craft traditions for generations. In this way, we ensure the product quality that meets the high demands that you rightly place on Werner Kern dance shoes.
It is the unique combination of stability, wearing comfort and the feather-light feel that makes our dance shoes so special. It is also the reason why we are today leaders in the development and production of high-quality dance shoes and sell them in more than 50 countries around the globe.
