The Alpha Shock is a half-sole dance shoe that fits like a sock.
Don't let knock-offs fool you! There is no substitute for the Alpha Shock. Replacing half-sole shoes, the Alpha is durable and effective compression footwear with a snug hug in the toes. It is so light you forget you are wearing it except for how much better your body feels at the end of the day.
What is the deal with traction or non-traction?
Unique traction that gives grip you can feel when you need it and takes a backseat when you don’t. Yes, it will start sticky and you wear the grip down (break it in) to the level of stick that is right for YOU, your floors and choreography. You KEEP it at your "sticky-preference" by using the E6000 Spray Adhesive. This keeps “re-sticking” the grip over and over for the life of the Shocks. If you don't like the feel of the traction, don't use the spray and the traction will wear smooth as you dance in them.
