Aerosoles

This post was written by Lindy Shopper.

Aerosoles, often associated with comfortable and practical footwear, has stepped into the swing realm. I spotted Aerosoles on Laura Keat at The Experiment and on Nelle Cherry at DCLX, and wondered how they were dancing in these rubber soled shoes. The secret, according to Nelle, is to get the soles dusty and the rubber becomes the perfect consistency of slippery and sticky when you need it. Who knew? I wear Aerosoles to work for comfort, but I never thought about taking them out on the dance floor. This is great news for the people who dance in flats or heels or both – there’s a little something for everyone.

There are several things that make Aerosoles comfortable, but dancers specifically will notice the highly flexible sole, the cushioned footbed, and the soft leather interiors of the shoes. There are also some nice vintage-inspired shoes in their lineup.

Here’s what I like from the Aerosoles site:

Gingerroot shoe in pink, gray, or black leather

Out of Controle shoe in gray, tan, or black patent leather

Saprolite shoe in black suede combo or black leather combo

Ginerous shoe in purple, gray, or black suede

Reproduction Harlem Baseball Henley

This post was written by Lindy Shopper.

Shortly after I heard about the musicians v. dancers baseball game at the Ultimate Lindy Hop Showdown in New Orleans, I serendipitously ran across this reproduction baseball henley on eBay, apparently a replica from 1930’s and 40’s baseball leagues. If Lindy Hoppers were to form a team, wouldn’t Harlem be home? Go Harlem!
