Reader Dave asks “Would you happen to know of any type of shoe for a street dancer? Right now I wear Pumas because they’re light and there are great styles but these Pumas are a bit tight on me.”
Dave’s right, Puma’s are lightweight but they are very narrow and shallow.
These images show two similarly designed shoes. Saucony are the deepest and widest, but the Asics are still better than the very shallow, narrow Puma, both in depth and outsole width. Just like the Puma, Saucony and Asics are also affordable.
Fortunately, most designers make similar styles, so if you’ve got your heart set on a certain style don’t despair, just try another manufacturer.
