    The Bleyer Charleston is a high quality, classic spectator shoe with brogue detail. The detail added to the trim and the saddle makes it a very stylish shoe. It was the first Bleyer swing shoe with a heel and has since set a trend.

    Bleyer Charlestons are offered in black & white or all black matt leather finish.

    You can customise the colour of the uppers with ANY colour! Simply use the customisation options or get in touch for further information.

    The Bleyer Charleston is a high quality, lace-up, spectator men’s shoe with all matt leather uppers and leather lining. There is a fitted insole for extra comfort whilst dancing.

    Orders for customised uppers on the Bleyer Charleston are welcome with the white EVA sole option, but cannot be offered with the leather sole option. 

    The shoe is available with a choice of soles, either the Bleyer White EVA Sole or the Leather Sole.

    The White EVA Sole with Heel

    The White EVA Sole with heel is a popular sole for swing dancers. Of all the Bleyer synthetic soles, the white sole offers the most freedom of movement for sliding, swiveling and gliding easily across the floor, offering dancers a similar feel to suede. The addition of the heel makes the shoe feel more like a street shoe rather than the flat sole options. These soles are Vegan friendly. Available as standard on Bleyer Charleston, or as an option on most other swing styles

    Leather Sole

    Leather soles from Bleyer are painted, so provide a really smart and high quality look. Leather soles are ideal for the more experienced dancer to show off spins and slides across the dancefloor. With minimal resistance, they feel “fast” to dance on and force you to find your centre. Available as standard on Bleyer Charleston and New Yorker.

    We have received occassional feedback that the black sole can mark some floors, such as laminate although they are reportedly fine on waxed dancefloors. For dancers who prefer to dance on the original leather it is possible to grind/sand the black surface either by hand or machine.


    The shoes themselves are fitted on the Mens last and so they are one of the widest fitting Bleyer shoes. They fit wider than shoes produced on unisex lasts such as the Bleyer Rock'n'Roll and Bleyer Boogie Woogie.

    Bleyer Charleston are available as standard in Bleyer size 36 to 50 (covering UK 3 to 12). Bleyer shoes are marked with European sizes and they tend to fit approximately one size small compared to typical European sizes. So, for example if you normally wear a European 38 you would probably want a Bleyer 39.

    Wherever any customizations are offered, these items are classes as a “special order”. These shoes are produced on the strength of that order and based on the exact specification supplied at the time the order is placed.
