Jazz sneakers are pretty good, but again without leather soles they limit the types of stuff you can do on a typical dance floor. There is a reason for this, most professional stage floors are terrible, I know tons of broadway dancers who "coke" floors before the show goes on... "Coking" is pouring Coca-Cola on the floor so it becomes sticky so you don't slip or slide. In swing, particularly lindy hop, we do the exact opposite. We use talcom powder, corn meal, or some other fine powder to make the floors more slippery. I'm not a fan of suede/chromed leather soles, mostly because the sole is so thin. A dress leather sole only used on non-abrasive surfaces will generally outlast the upper be it leather, canvas, or other. Chromed leather will last with care a couple of years depending on the dance frequency and style. Weekly use of Bleyers will generally make the shoe fall apart anywhere from three months to about 18 months... estimated.
