Bloch Ladies "Tap Pro" Tap Shoe*


J-Sams for short! This beautifully crafted tap shoe in partnership with Jason Samuels Smith features a triple stacked heel and The Jason Samuels Smith Taps.

Style: S0313L
  • First crafted tap shoe available with a full build up straight out of the box.
  • Triple stacked heel and double stacked hard leather outsole for durability.
  • Specially developed metal bonding procedures to ensure that the screws hold the taps in place and will not loosen without modifications by the dancer.
  • Oxfort style, available in luxury soft grain leather.
  • Canvas and Kashmir lining provide comfort.
  • Engineered to achieve maximum tap plate contact with a flat surface.
  • High quality steel resonance plate between the tap and leather outsole achieving exquisite depth and pitch of sound.
  • Shorter break-in time than a conventional built up tap shoe with counter free toe box so the upper conforms to the foot for extra comfort and fit.

High Quality February 2, 2019
Reviewer: Robyn Johnson from Huber Heights, OH United States  
These tap shoes are quite heavy (nearly one lb. per shoe heavier than my regular tap shoes) but are totally worth it! They have taken a little while to get used to, so practicing in them everyday is a must if you want to make sure your timing is correct. The taps sound very solid and loud, and the extra weight help keep me grounded and actually make some of the steps easier to execute.  They are also visually appealing.

Wonderful experience al around September 20, 2018
Reviewer: Anonymous Person  
The shipping was really fast, and the order was exactly what I wanted. These shoes are amazing. They are definitely heavier than the other kinds of Bloch so it is taking my feet a little while to get used to them, but they sound so cool. The wood makes you able to reach a whole nother type of sound not reachable by other Bloch products. They are really comfortable too! It was well worth the extra money. I got them in white and they are even cuter than I could have imagined. They do get black scuff marks on the toes but apparently nail polish removal will get it out. I still have more research to do but that was suggested to me.
Overall a wonderful product and experience.

Fabulous Shoe and Seller March 30, 2018
Reviewer: Chris from Schenectady, NY United States  
First, awesome customer service from the DanceWear Shoppe. Thank you!!
The shoes are quite fabulous. I've worn Bloch tap shoes for many years and was very excited to try these. They are similar to my Bloch Respect shoes but a sturdier shoe. Soft leather uppers (I purchased the white) and beautiful, rich sounding taps. These do run small. I normally wear a Bloch 8 1/2 to accommodate my insoles but with these I had to order a size 9. They fit the same as my 8 1/2 Respects. I think these J-Sams will be my new favorite Bloch tap shoes!!

Good, not great, tap shoes February 28, 2018
Reviewer: Nicole Morris-Anastasi from Richmond, VA United States  
These are a good-enough shoe. They're more solid than a basic lace-up tap shoe, and will help make better sounds, but they don't compare to a Miller Ben (a SOLID shoe). I've been wearing Miller Bens for 10+ years and had to purchase these shoes for a musical. I'm not a huge fan (they're mushy - I wish the sole was more solid), but they'll do. The instructions say to get a size larger than your street shoe, which is true, but they quickly break in, leading to looseness. You'll probably need an insole to avoid having to wear with socks (which I did because my costume forces me to wear tights only with this shoe). You'll also probably want to replace the laces with something larger and flatter for easier tightening.
My shopping experience was great - super nice people and the product was shipped and delivered as expected. They offer a better price than Bloch.
