Torn Between the Performer Latin Dance Shoe Diamond Studded or Star Performer Latin Dance Shoe Diamond Studded?

Posted by Tina Lee-Almazar on

It takes a special pair of dance shoes to stand out from the crowd. The shape, the color, the style, everything about the Latin dance shoes have to match with the outfit to look like the top performer that you are!

That’s why here at Yami’s, we’re always pushing the envelope of footwear design. We want to give you gorgeous Zouk dance shoes and Bachata dance shoes that you cannot find anywhere. And if you’ve been loving our Latin dance heels for years now, you’re probably familiar with some of our most popular designs.

For professional Latin dancers, we have the Performer series. The Performer series is comprised of fine-quality dance shoes and unisex flats with extra embellishments. Don’t be fooled by the classic shapes of these dance shoes though, they’re designed to wear like iron so you can perform complex footwork without missing a beat.

Two of the most popular models in the Performer series is the Performer Latin Dance Shoe Diamond Studded and the Star Performer Latin Dance Shoe Diamond Studded. At a glance, these dance heels look almost identical. Both models feature a flattering champagne-copper colorway, thin criss-cross straps, and an extra dose of sparkles. But there are subtle differences that make each model unique on its own.

So what’s the difference and which one is best for you? We’re here to help you out!

Performer Latin Dance Shoe Diamond Studded

Featuring a leg-skimming shape, criss-cross ankle strap, and sexy peep-toe design, the Performer Latin Dance Shoe Diamond Studded puts dancing feet on full display! 

  • Encrusted with sparkly rhinestones
  • Flexible microfiber outsoles, made for spinning
  • Ankle straps and padded insoles for the utmost support 
  • Available in Flared and Cuban Flared heels

The Performer Latin Dance Shoe Diamond Studded provides the right boost of height to highlight the leg line while also flashing those sexy toes. The ankle straps can be adjusted easily for quick changes in between performances. As far as appearance goes, the Performer Latin Dance Shoe Diamond Studded is partially covered in rhinestones while the Star Performer Latin Dance Shoe Diamond Studded is fully covered in shimmery rhinestones.

Star Performer Latin Dance Shoe Diamond Studded

Designed for the star of the show - that's you! - the Star Performer Latin Dance Shoe Diamond Studded features the classic shape of strappy heels with sexy, crystal-encrusted thin straps. These leg-lengthening Latin dance shoes are designed to wow the audience with every step while treating the feet with luxurious comfort thanks to the padded insoles.

  • Fully encrusted with sparkly rhinestones
  • X-strap that anchors the foot to the shoe bed
  • Sexy peep-toe design
  • Available in the classic Flared heel

The  Star Performer Latin Dance Shoe Diamond Studded is perfect for the diva performer, the one who loves over-the-top looks! The shoes are literally covered in glittering rhinestones so you’re making a statement with every step. 

Of course, you’ve got the adjustable ankle straps and the way that these straps are crafted is different from those you see on the Performer Latin Dance Shoe Diamond Studded. The straps are X-shape and embedded under the arch of the outsole. The straps hold the feet firmly to the footbed so you can dance in perfect balance. 

Which Performer Should You Get?

… the answer depends on your personal style as well as the kind of heels you’re comfortable wearing. The Star Performer Latin Dance Shoe Diamond Studded is only available in classic flared while the Performer Latin Dance Shoe Diamond Studded is available in flared and Cuban heels. Both models boast our signature padded insoles that absorb peak impact, allowing you to dance up to 4 times longer in heels. 

If you find yourself completely torn between these gorgeous Latin dance heels, we won’t tell if you get both! We can’t blame you, our Latin dance shoes are amazing!
