SIZE CHART


The feet are fickle (and so are your preferences). Each person will fit their Shocks differently…so below the charts are size GUIDES…SEE BELOW FOR SIZING TIPS to help get you in your best fit!


Tips for Sizing

  • The Alpha Shock is a snug toe fit and the Infinite Shock has a freedom fit toe
    • If a dancer has a very wide foot and is on the top end of the size range listed, you may choose to go up a size in the Alpha Shock
      • For example, if they are a size 7.5 with a very wide foot or you typically range between a 7.5-8.0 instead of a 7.0-7.5, you may be more comfortable in a size Large Alpha Shock instead of the size Medium. Your sizing in the Infinite Shock should not be affected with a wider foot
  • The Performance Shock/AMP Shock fits similar to the Infinite but the size chart IS slightly different so please take note! The top of each size range is borderline, here are tips to help you determine your best fit.
    • Foot size, narrowness and age may change the size up or down.
    • You may consider selecting the smaller of your border line size IF:
      • You are at the low end of a size range and are younger than 11 years of age, are very petite boned for your age, and/or have a narrower foot than average for your size
      • For example, an 11-year--old who wears a size 5.5-6 shoe would choose a size Small Infinite instead of a Medium (based on the size chart) or a very petite boned adult
      • A 16-year-old who typically ranges between sizes 6.0-6.5 street shoes and has average leg and foot size would choose the recommended size Medium.
      • A 16-year-old that ranges 5.5-6.0 with a narrower foot will likely be more comfortable in a size Small
      • Also consider if you are a 6.0-6.5 but very narrow feet or petite boned if you prefer a snug fit in the toes you may want a small, if you like wiggle room, go with the Medium.
    • Every dancer has a preference…some will love the lower profile of the Performance, some may miss the snug hug of the Infinite up the calf.
    • The Performance Shock has the same arch and ankle support and differs in:
      • Lower profile & softer opening:  the top of the Shock should hit below the bottom of the calf and goes on easier. The Infinite hits mid-calf
      • Sleeker and fitted in the toes than the Infinite to accentuate the feet and create a more seamless look on stage. But still has freedom.
  • For the Infinite Shock sizing, foot size, narrowness and age may change the size
    • You may consider selecting one size smaller if:
      • You are at the low end of a size range and are younger than 11 years of age, are very petite boned for your age, and/or have a narrower foot than average for your size
      • For example, an 11-year--old who wears a size 5.5-6 shoe would choose a size Small Infinite instead of a Medium (based on the size chart)
      • A 16-year-old who typically ranges between sizes 6.0-6.5 street shoes and has average leg and foot size would choose the recommended size Medium.
      • A 16-year-old that ranges 5.5-6.0 with a narrower foot will likely be more comfortable in a size Small
    • The Infinite has the MOST freedom in the toes of all Shock styles…so with the above rules also consider if you prefer a snug fit in the toes (go with the smaller size you are borderline for) or want some wiggle room (go to the larger size you are border line for)
  • The Performance Shock/AMP Shock fits like the Infinite but the size chart IS slightly different so please take note! The top of each size range is borderline, use the same rules of the Infinite to size.
    • Every dancer has a preference…some will love the lower profile of the Performance, some may miss the snug hug of the Infinite up the calf. Remember the purpose of the Performance is to create the perfect line on stage while providing Apolla support and the Infinite is to give maximum support and protection for long days and rehearsals.
    • The Performance Shock has the same arch and ankle support and differs in:
      • Lower profile & softer opening: the top of the Shock should hit below the bottom of the calf and goes on easier. The Infinite hits mid-calf
      • Sleeker and fitted in the toes than the Infinite to accentuate the feet and create a more seamless look on stage. But still has freedom.
  • The Joule Shock:
    • If you are border line and have a very short arch (the length of your overall shoe size is primarily made up of the ball of your foot and toes) or you are very narrow feet/petite boned, go down a size.
    • If the Joule loses it shape, wash it with normal care instructions and it should regain its shape nicely.
  • The K-Warmer Shock:
    • Measurements are given as a range that it may fit. Most likely starting about an average 13/14 yr old female on through to an adult petite/average male dancer. However, it may vary based on personal preference.
