The Dinkles Black Patent Formal Marching and Stage Shoe is constructed similarly to the Vanguard but with a more formal appearance. Our Formal Marching Shoe features a high grade patent style outer for a perfect shine. Sole is made of a special rubber for traction, and shock resistant heel and sole. The inside of this shoe has a comfortable lining made of Dri-Lex, features a runner's Ortho Cup that contours to the foot and provides comfort, and the forepart pad and flex zone allow for extra flex. This item is for the Black Patent Formal Marching Shoe.
