This is my first pair of Latin dance shoes and I’m so excited to use them, they just arrived today! They look just like how they do in the pictures, my feet are a little wider than normal and hang a bit off the side but that’s usually what happens with my shoes. The cushions on the hell and the ball of the foot are super comfortable and I know it’ll happen me stay on my feet and dancing longer! The only critique I can give is I wish there were more holes to adjust the straps to make them tighter around the ankle.
I am so please with my purchase. The padding is the life saver! At first I thought it will affect my fit but that is a true life saver! It tremendously helped absorbing pressure I put on the balls of my feet! I also love how the materials! I suffer from painful bunions on both feet with other high heels but this style does not bother me at all! Love Yami shoes!
This is the second pair of Celia shoes I got, love them! I get so many compliments on them. It feels like the black ones have even better lace quality and the material itself looks more durable. They go perfectly with any outfit and they are so comfortable!
Love them! As a person with wide feet, i can customize as wide as i want. However, there's a slight discomfort on one of my toes but everything else fits great. I also have another pair in black.
Fits perfectly! I am usually a 9.5, but I measured the length of my foot and selected a 10.5 from the size chart. I am so glad I did! Please do this. I was skeptical about being a whole size larger, but this shoe fits like a glove all the way around!
Love the shoe, but it's too big. I selected the appropriate size based on the chart - which fits the foot lengthwise - but the cage of the shoe is too big.
I finally had an opportunity to try out my new shoes the other night and I'm extremely happy with them! I've been dancing for over 15+ years and these are by far the most comfortable pair of dance heels I've owned. They hug my feet without "cutting" into my skin. There's padding in the sole. I feel very secure dancing in them.
Also, thank you for the quick response when I called and left a message with questions prior to purchasing.
I just retired my first pair after MANY hours of dancing. The 2nd pair is just as cute and secure fitting as the first. Keep it up, Yami!
I love these shoes!
I have a narrow foot so finding shoes that can be laced to fit comfortably was a big plus.
These shoes are SO comfortable! They are very true to size. I’m a 7 on regular shoes and I got 7 on Yami and they fit perfectly!! I love the cushion as well.
I recommend these shoes!!
The most compy shoes i ever worn. It was a perfect fit and they are so soft on the feet.
The shoes are pretty and comfy, they just run a little small by maybe half a size. Going out dancing in them tonight ^.^
I absolutely love the fit and comfort of this shoe! I have narrow feet and being able to adjust the width for support is phenomenal. I can dance for hours on end in these!
The bottom of cushion help me not to get tired. That's very great made. But I got shoe blister on my one heel and front part of toes. More than 3 inch high heel will go down weight. I wish there is lower size than 3 inch hight. Shoes are well made.
Love these shoes. I have a black and brown paid and just received a black pair. Very very Comfortable
These shoes are super comfortable even though I chose a high heel and the style is super fashionable and cute! I’m super excited to try them out on the dance floor.
I really love these. They are snug which is exactly what i wanted, so they make me feel like my feet are kept in place which makes me feel stable and grounded. And the colors are gorgeous! I think if you have really wide feet or chunkier feet though, they might be too snug/tight. My feet are skinny which makes some shoes feel too lose, but these feel great!
these are my favorite pair of social dancing shoes, I take them every time. I hope u guys make more styles.
I was able to try on Yami shoes at an event that a rep was visiting, so I confirmed in person the size that I needed (true to my normal shoe size). I was so excited to choose not only the style, but the height and shape of the heel! They are completely worth the wait to have them made just the way I requested, and they fit like a glove while giving me all the support I need. Thank you Yami!
this is the most comfortable shoe ever worn! true to size. and the beat part, true to it all, I LOVE all the compliments I get with these.if you want comfort, BUY. if you like compliments, BUY! TRUST. AMAZING...
Fits true to size, comfortable. Looking forward to breaking them in.
***Note: Our social dances are usually at a club that has a separate dance floor from the bar, but I mistakenly wore these off the dance floor and now the suede bottoms are slightly ruined, but this has nothing to do with the shoe itself, and they're not totally ruined; I can still wear them dancing!***
I purchased these Valeria Dark Chocolate beauties at Bailame Dance Festival in Minneapolis three weeks ago, and I love them! I'm a 9.5 and I'm not sure if size may vary based on the shoe, but these particular ones are true to size, I found. (I got to try them out because there was a table at the event.) Soo affordable for such a great shoe!
I get tons of compliments on these every time I wear them, and they're comfortable too! I do have really, really sensitive feet, so I can dance in these for about 2-3 hours before I need a break. 10/10, and I will be purchasing two more pairs of Yami shoes, at least! (I'm putting a pre-order in, today.)
Love, love, love these.
I love these shoes. Very comfy. Classy. Love the color and they keep my toes feeling strapped in. I just wish there was an additional hole to tighten around my actual foot/ankle, but I can put another hole in the strap. Otherwise, perfect!
Yami does it again!! These are gorgeous, however I will need to exchange for 1/2 size smaller. I typically wear a 7.5 in Yami which is my normal shoe size, but need to size down in these. No biggie! The material is so soft. I worried because I have a wide foot but there is a nice give to this shoe. Very Satisfied as usual
with Yami Shoes 😍
THis shoe is very stylish and comfy!!! I love my Yami shoes!! Proud Yami Mami
I’ve been looking for a good classic shoe and this shoe is a great fit. This would be a good shoe for any experienced dancers as well as beginners. I love detailed reviews to help me get the best fit for my feet, so I hope the rest helps anyone reading this make a decision.
Sizing: I’ll start off by saying I have normal to slightly wide feet. This shoe felt great brand new, maybe even a hair snug. After wearing these for a couple of months, they have stretched a bit (as expected) and fit perfectly now. The knot on top is a faux knot (yay!) so you won’t get that bulge that typically hurts on knotted shoes. I ordered a 6.5 in this shoe (fit perfect) and my street shoe size is a 7. I have the Micaela shoe in a size 7 and those fit perfect. I ordered the Pro-Flex in a 6 and 6.5 and while the shoe did not fit me due to strap issues, the 6 would have fit best if the straps had fit properly. With this shoe, I would recommend going one half size lower than your street shoe size if you have normal to wide feet due to how the straps lay and narrow in at the toe. If you have really narrow feet, I would go one whole size down. If you have pretty wide feet, I’d probably order your regular shoe size. Hope this helps other people that have other Yami shoes with sizing!
Comfort: I love the Yami brand as they have metatarsal pads sewn into the shoes. I have a Morton’s neuroma in one of my feet and my ortho doctor is in favor of the metatarsal cushions to help relieve some of the pressure. The only thing I will say is that overtime the metatarsal pad does compress down from all of the pressure, so for me personally I have to rebuy shoes more often for foot health reasons. Overall has the same comfort standard as other Yami shoes.
Con: The only con I could think of is the lack of flexibility of the shoe. The perfect shoe would be a combination of the Pro-Flex and the Performer shoe. When I point my toes in this shoe, you can’t really tell at all and the tip of the shoe bar...
I love love love my shoes!!! Now I want them in Street soles!!
True to size and the cushioning makes them very comfortable. As these shoes are “lace-ups” you can easily tighten or loosen the laces, adjusting them to fit the width of your foot (and you don’t have to deal with buckles).
Very stylish and I’ve had sooooo many compliments!!!
These dance shoes are super cute and comfortable for dancing all night. You can’t beat the price either. I love my Yami shoes!
