Sizing concerns

AIDA shoes are measured in centimeters so to understand your size simply take your known US shoe size and add 17 to get an approximate length in centimeters. So if you are a 6US, you are most likely 23cm. For closed toe shoes please add 17.5cm.

(ie. 6US + 17= 23 centimeters)

AIDA shoes have a "break-in" period of a couple weeks depending on how often and for how long you wear them. This ensures that your shoes will take on the unique shape of your foot creating more support and comfort. When you first purchase your shoes they should fit snuggly.

Our shoes are hand crafted with a supportive heel and arch. They will soften over time to give you the proper amount of comfort as well as support.

Our ladies Latin/ Rhythm shoes are available with an extra support called the "K-arch".
