SUEDE VS. NEOLITE VS. LEATHER SOLE
Suede is a piece of leather from hides of the cow. It offers superb flexibility that makes the shoe mold faster to your feet. You can dance on almost any type of floor except for pavement. Suede has a hairy surface that allows you to have the perfect combination of grip and slip. When losing the grip, you can brush its hair in opposite direction to stick more to the floor. Depending on how many times you wear them, you will need at some point to re-sole them because they wear out faster than leather or neolite soles.
Neolite is a smooth, bright synthetic rubber. It offers a lot of grips but you can still dance to it. This type of sole is perfect for a vegan person looking for non-animal source shoes. This sole is not rigid but is not so flexible either.
Leather is a rigid material from hides of the cow. It offers great stability and is very durable. It is more rigid and more slippery than Neolite and suede. It does not need any brushing, but some people brush it to create a grip to the floor. It is also perfect for everyday use shoes because you can step on any floor with it.
Besides selecting the type of sole you want, you can also decorate the middle outsole of the shoes with any material and color. This extra feature will not only differentiate your shoes and make them more stylish when you do your Boleos and Ganchos, but it will also make them more flexible.
