Jazz Shoes/Dance Sneakers - know where to find them?

I need to get my hands on a pair of jazz shoes or dance sneakers. I found some jazz shoes in a shop in Winterthur, but they wanted 59 francs for them. I am trying to find a better price. Anyone know where to find cheap jazz shoes or dance sneakers cheap in the Winterthur (or even Zurich) area?

Thanks!!

do they do lessons - ask the teacher!

My sister did ballet/dance/ etc for years, and her teachers were always very particular about what shoes to buy, and where, and the cost.

And if you are looking for high end dance shoes there is "El Artesano" here

El Artesano
Alfred-Escher-Strasse 23
8002 Zürich
043 817 60 04

He sells hand made Tango, Standard and Latin shoes starting at ~200 per pair

Let me tell you, those look like real shoes and not like a charicature like most Diamant or Kern shoes.

There s also a Ballet Store in the Niederdorf, Zurich that sells all kinds of equipment. No idea of the price though. I think the store is located on the Römergasse (right off Limmatquai).
