Dancer, dance studio owner and choreographer Burju Perez recently celebrated the launch of her dance-inspired shoe line. The launch party included both a street wear/dance and bridal/special event fashion show. Models wore dresses by Kathlin Argiro, jewelry by Lisa Linhardt, and bridal gowns by Lisa Krizner-George of Vanilla Pink. Live entertainment was provided by DJ Danny Ramirez and famed salsa pianist, “Pulpo,” and the hors d’oeuvres and mini desserts were courtesy of Las Chicas Bakery.

The private 2nd floor Shoe Salon allowed attendees to touch, feel and try on Burju for themselves and order custom shoes at a discount. Burju Shoes infuses fashion with comfort, perfectly suited for hours of dancing and staying on your feet. Burju says that her shoes “fit like a sock”. The shoes are engineered like a professional dance shoe, with a remarkably flexible suede sole.

Burju Shoes are not just for dancers, but for every woman looking for all-day comfort and style. Burju currently offers over 50 styles of shoes for men, women and children. The shoes can be custom-ordered internationally at and at select retail boutique worldwide. The shoes are very reasonably priced, with clearance at $60, best sellers at $95 and “dance natural styles” at $185. Customers can customize the color combination, width, height of heel (from 1 ¾” to 3 ¾”), trim, detailing and beadwork. For those of us with petite feet, sizing starts at a size 4! Dancers, professional women and brides-to-be are able to walk and dance proudly, showing off their personal style without having to switch into another pair of shoes to maintain comfort.
