This is my third pair of these shoes used for Zumba. Love the fact they have the smooth patch on the bottom that helps not stick to floors in the humid weather. You can pivot easier without risk of injury to knees. Get 1/2 size up though.

These shoes are great for modern, lyrical, or jazz. They are lightweight, but provide the needed surface area to turn on! These shoes are overall fantastic! They are great for turning, and feel very similar to Bloch's ballet flats, most specifically I own the Synchrony and the soles are the same on these shoes. The sole has a wide platform allowing for lots of turning space! I love that I can turn like in my ballet shoes, but still have my heel open to feel the floor and provide traction. These are also a very good color match for my skin tone, and from a stage it provides a barefoot look! The only downside is that because they are canvas they do wear out pretty quickly. I had mine for about four months, and they had holes through the toes. However I danced in these shoes 5+ hours a week, all of which was pretty hard on my shoes with lots of turns and such. Also the elastic on these shoes have a silicone lining that helps the straps stay in place. In the beginning this is very effective and I almost never had to readjust my shoe. However, about the same time the canvas is wearing out though, this lining "grip strip" is starting to come off. The canvas material is very stretchy and allows for toes to spread and feel comfortable in the shoe. The shoe does run very large. According to the size chart my 8-8.5 size foot should have needed a large; however, the large was much too big, and didn't hug my foot right which made the shoe twist when I turned. This could be because I have a fairly narrow compressible foot though. I ended up with a small, which worked perfectly! I am planning on buying another pair because these feel so good, I only wish they lasted a little longer, but either way I think they are so worth it! I would definitely recommend these shoes to anyone looking for a form fitting, lightweight shoe that maintains the barefoot look while allowing for fantastic turns!

I am usually a size 9 (EUR 40) and ordered a half size larger because most of the reviews suggested going at least a half size up. The shoe fits like a glove and I think the leather will give more the more I wear them so I am glad that I did not go a full size up. I use it for argentine tango classes (beginners) and think they are perfect because I am 5'11 and do not want a crazy heel to make me even taller. My order also went through in less than a week so I did not miss a new class without them!

Unlike most of the other reviewers of this product, I found these ballet shoes to run true to size. In fact, I trust the Zappos reviewers so much that I didn't even purchase the shoes in my daughter's normal size, and in fact ordered 1 and 2 sizes down but was surprised when my daughter couldn't get them on her feet. So I went back & ordered her normal size and lo & behold, they fit. I'll still keep reading (and writing) reviews but just take note. Otherwise, the shoes are great. Exactly what you'd expect out of a dance shoe.

I bought these shoes as a replacement for an older pair of Bloch Tap Flex shoes. I was especially excited that Bloch still made this shoe in narrow. Unfortunately, in the intervening years they have changed the material of the sole of the shoe. When I first tapped in them they hurt, but I thought perhaps they just needed to be broken in. I added performance insoles; the shoes still caused pain. In class yesterday I yanked them off to return to my old pair with dead taps, and noticed that the sole the front taps are attached to are not the same material as on my old pair; they seem to be some sort of plastic now. I think Bloch cut corners, which is a shame, because now I have no idea where to get decent shoes for my narrow feet. Those of us with narrow feet have less natural padding, so our shoes matter. I do not recommend these at all.

I was excited to see these because I loved the Bloch Pro Elastic and they were true to size for me (ordering 2 sizes down from street). These seem like they'd be awesome but they just will not stay on my feet! The actual shoe fabric is stretchy which makes them very comfortable but they flopped off the back of my feet after a couple jumps. They seem maybe slightly too short but are also loose across the tops of my feet. I've never encountered a fit like this so I'm not sure if I should try bigger or smaller! I'm going back to Pro Elastic because I know they work.

I was extremely disappointed in these. There is no substance to them at all - feels like putting on a pair of socks & the bottom is rubber - so terrible for what I wanted them for. Sending them back.

I purchased these for my kickboxing/strength training classes. We work on mats, and can't wear shoes, but I needed support because of my Plantar Fascitis. I thought these would help. While there is SOME heel support, it is otherwise, like a sock - a very expensive sock. In addition, they have already started to fray along the elastic strap, and I haven't even owned them a month. Sizing is off as well. I wear a 9 1/2 in regular shoes, so I ordered the 10. I wish there was a 10 1/2.

These shoes are so comfy! I switched from Capezios and will never look back. As with all tap shoes, the size is off. I take a Women's 10, but needed an 11 in this shoe.

Very, very comfortable...but order at least one size larger! Great for salsa practice and zumba no matter how clunky they look. Worth the comfort and protection for legs and feet.

I am really pissed that these shoes are a full size smaller (if not more) than marked. I usually wear size 10½, so I got a size 11. I swear they felt like a size 9½. I could tell though that they would have been super comfortable if the right size. I am really pissed now because there is no size 12. I do not understand why the sizes are so far off.

I have not worn them yet, because I ordered my usual size, 7, and my toes hit the end. I am ordering the next size up!

I agree with the other review. This shoe definitely runs small. My daughter wears a 10 or 10.5 normally. We ordered this shoe in an 11 (biggest size they had) and it is pinching her toes, so we are returning. Probably an 11.5 would have worked. Its purpose was to be for dance (hip hop) and for that, I'd say this is a great shoe if you can get the sizing right!

These are very comfortable, beautiful shoes. They are worth the price. For me, they ran one whole size small, so size up. I have very narrow feet so they are a little wide, but it's not too problematic.

For a really snug fit I would recommend ordering your street size. Problem with the tight fit is that the toes will probably wear through faster. I am an adult size 6.5 and ordered a 7. Still a good fit, but toe area is not stretched out as much as with the 6.5. Have used these for recital only and they already show considerable wear and spots where it looks like the color is fading, but no holes.

Love the grip on these shoes. The heel support is amazing. Like everyone else, runs a size bigger.

This was my first experience with dance sneakers. I have a hobbit-shaped foot (broad across the ball; narrow in the heel). I chose this one because it had a fair number of reviews from people with width issues who liked it compared with like shoes. I normally wear a 10.5 in sneakers and other flat shoes (on the rare occasion that unicorn size is available) and an 11 in most other women's shoes and boots. It is reasonably comfortable given that my foot size and shape doesn't really exist in women's ready to wear--not too tight across the toe, not too slippy in the heel. I ordered the 12 based on other reviewers suggestions and it was the right size with a light sock. If I wanted to wear a heavy sock I might go up another half size. The support is adequate and the pivot it great (no more tweaking my knees unnecessarily!). I wear them on a hard wood floor and have no problems with slipping. The insoles come out and you could easily substitute a thin orthotic; again, I'd consider going up another half size for a bulky one. I've only worn it twice and can't speak to longevity, but it seems like a sturdy well constructed shoe.

I wear a size 4 street shoes, so I think I should have ordered a size 4D. Instead I ordered a size 3.5 C. However, I like the way it feels snuggly on my foot. I have a a high arch.

Perfect for a wider foot, especially one with bunions. The reviews are correct in suggesting a full size larger.I ordered a 1/2 size found it to be just on the verge of being too small.

Perfect shoe for dancing! I tried two other Bloch and this one has the most support! I'm usually a size 9 but I got a size 10 and it fits perfectly!
