When I do flares or footwork with a new shoe it only takes a couple of practices for it to start getting torn in these locations.

Damaged shoe.

What are some shoe types that are built for breakdance? Shoes that I can use for a longer duration without having to worry about them becoming like this.

  • @Alec thanks for the update, I edited my question. Since there isn't a category for breakdance shoes I'm looking for the type of shoes I should buy. Are tennis shoes good? Basketball? Running? My last shoe was running shoes and it tore very easily. I need something different. My question isn't much different from this: fitness.stackexchange.com/questions/19147/…

  • Yeah, that seems more reasonable. Re-opened.

    Duct tape them up just like skateboarders do.

You can buy shoes which this part is bigenter image description here

or u can buy " Adidas Gazelle " brand is so very durable for bboys.

or while dancing, stick tape on part which torn until the time your feet won't touch the ground in practise.

but do not forget breaking is dynamic and aggressive dance therefore damaged shoes are the essence of this dance^^
