Having the right shoes is absolutely essential for Lindy Hop. It’s important that the shoe’s style matches your outfit and looks good, but it’s even more important that the shoe’s design is comfortable and sturdy.
The best dance shoes for Lindy Hop are supportive, stylish, durable, and comfortable. And when you’re going to be on your feet dancing all night, you want to wear footwear designed by someone with first-hand dancing experience who knows what you need in a dance shoe.
Saint Savoy owner and designer Rani-Patricia is a dancer herself, so she knows how important having the best dance shoes for the Lindy Hop is. She carefully designs and, together with professional dancers, tests every shoe model here at Saint Savoy, ensuring the high quality, sophisticated vintage style, and supportive features. These shoes are also perfectly suited for everyday wear, outside or off the dance floor!
Here are some of the best shoes for Lindy Hoppers, as chosen and designed by someone who knows what she’s talking about:
Our Favourite Lindy Hop Shoes for Women
There are many things to consider when choosing the best Lindy Hop shoes for women. What heel height will be most comfortable for you? What colour and design details match your style and wardrobe?
Luckily, Saint Savoy carries great Lindy Hop shoes for women in a huge array of styles and colours!
The RIVIERA, one of most beloved models, is the perfect accompaniment for any Lindy Hopper. The classic RIVIERA models all have a heel height of 3.5 cm, making sure to put some spring in your step!
All RIVIERA shoes have a timelessly elegant design, with a beautiful t-strap and intricate openings that give your feet a bit of air.
But the RIVIERA isn’t just gorgeous–it’s incredibly comfortable too! The heel has a wide base to support your feet, as well as soft cushioning, a pliable sole, and fantastic shock absorption.
Heels not really for you? Don’t worry–we also offer the RIVIERA FLAT! All RIVIERA FLAT models have the same polished design of the RIVIERA, but with a 1.5 cm heel.
Like the RIVIERA, the RIVIERA FLAT comes in a range of stunning colours. Turn heads with the Garnet, or make others green with envy with the Scarab. For that extra bit of flash, try the Hologram or Moviola.
Another exquisite Saint Savoy offering is the HIGHBALL, which has the perfect blend of feminine and sensual detailing!
These striking lace-up heels take inspiration from a model of 1930s shoes. The eye-catching woven leather bands of the HIGHBALL elevate any outfit with the right touch of femininity and sensuality.
The lacing and cut of these shoes make them suitable for an assortment of foot shapes, including wide feet! Of course, they also have the gentle cushioning and sturdy shock absorption we are known for.
If you’re looking to really support your feet while you Lindy Hop, the GRAND PRIX is the shoe for you! Another flat heel, the double straps help hold your feet while you glide through life—functional and beautiful!
The GRAND PRIX is perennially stylish with its t-strap and elegant cut. But the GRAND PRIX also has contemporary comforts thanks to its cushy footbed and supple leather that will fit your feet perfectly.
