Ever-Jazz Shoe by DSI

Add an extra kick to your guard performance with the new Ever-Jazz shoe by Director’s Showcase International (DSI). The split-sole dance shoe forms to your foot and works for both outdoor and indoor performances.

“The people who have tried it out have absolutely loved it,” says Jeff Dyson, vice president of marketing at DSI. “The first thing we hear is that it’s the most comfortable shoe they’ve ever put on their foot because it’s so lightweight and flexible.”

The Ever-Jazz is made of the same stretchy, moisture-wicking material as the Ever-Dri glove—meaning that it is also anti-odor, quick-drying and machine washable.

“We heard that a lot of the shoes out there were too stiff or weren’t forgiving enough as far as flexibility, so we saw the need to create a shoe that would form to your foot like a glove,” Dyson says. “Since it does stretch, it fits like a glorified sock on your foot.”

The split sole is sewn onto the shoe for durability. Unlike shoes where the sole is glued on, it won’t peel off or fall apart.

“It’s thick enough to withstand outdoors and thin enough to be used indoors as well and not be clunky and chunky like a sneaker,” Dyson says. “It is more durable than any other jazz shoe on the market. We sew the soles right onto the shoe, something that no other company does.”

Available in tan and black, the Ever-Jazz comes in women’s size 4 to 14 (men’s 2 to 12) in whole sizes and medium widths only. Due to the flexibility of the material, half or wide sizes are unnecessary. The Ever-Jazz retails for $34.95 in the 2013 to 2014 season.
