Are court shoes the only style that is appropriate for Standard (e.g. in a comp setting) for women, or are other styles acceptable as well (see link below for example)? http://www.capezio.com/women/shoes/ballroom-shoes/ballroom-jaime-2-heel I'm thinking about getting a new pair of shoes, and I tend to prefer ones that are the style of the link above (with the straps around the foot, and with a break between the heel/toe box). I currently have a pair of court shoes, but I don't like them as much, even though they have a strap over the top - they don't feel as secure. However, if court shoes are the expectation for Standard (vs. Smooth), I will look for a pair of those. FWIW, my internet searches, both on this forum and outside, have not been successful in helping me figure out the answer to this so if I've missed a past thread I'm happy to take a look at that.
