"We, at LaDuca, believe that no matter what type of dance you prefer, Character, Broadway jazz, or Tap, you should always be able to enjoy the simple pleasure of a versatile, flexible, all purpose dance shoe. Be it taking a simple jazz class, auditioning for a musical on Broadway, participating in a dance competition, or practicing the waltz in ballroom class there is a perfect LaDuca shoe for you; to be the best you must perform at your best, so wear the best, wear LaDuca."
— Phil LaDuca, Founder
LaDuca shoes founder, Phil LaDuca, has worked as a dancer and choreographer for over 20 years. LaDuca was created by a dancer, for the dancer. They are painstakingly constructed in Italy to reflect the perfection the industry demands. LaDuca shoes are made of the finest Italian leather and ensure the support and stability a dancer needs while affording the extreme flexibility that a dancer desires.
LaDuca shoes are fit off standard US street shoe sizing. When someone first puts the shoe on you want a snug fit in the width and toes to lie flat and reach the end of the shoe. The shoes loosen up as they are worn. Creasing across the toe box indicates the need for a wider width in the shoe. The shoes should be snug but not tight, LaDuca shoes should never start off painful but there should be no additional length in the shoe.
