Invention of the tap

 

American Tap Dance was brought about in the early 1900s. In 1920, tap shoes were wooden soles and heels and Capezio, a major store for dancewear and shoes, had a patent on them. Later, metal (aluminum) taps were brought about and became the norm. Tap shoes come in three basic colors, tan, white, and black. A combination of the white and black tap shoe used to be common in the 1930s-50s.Today one can pick up a wide variety of tap shoes.

Wooden Sole Shoes

The wooden sole shoes were used first in the European countries through clogging dance, which includes a series of steps that are flat footed.
