I tried a friends 8.5, I thought it felt a little small. I ordered a 9 and it still felt small. I sent it back and ordered a 9.5. The shoe says med width but the shoebox says W and it feels wide. These shoes are comfortable to dance in and have good arch support.

I love these shoes. What I don't like about them is the sizing. I generally wear a size 9, so because of the reviews I read I purchased a size 10. I should have purchased a size 10 1/2. It was too late to send them back as I have already worn them. The check boxes below did not give you the option to check size and a half bigger or smaller or they only give you the option to check one full size bigger or smaller.

Comfortable dance shoe bought for ballroom dancing classes. I'm very glad I paid attention to the other reviewers regarding sizing of the Bloch shoes. As a result, I ordered this shoe in tan in three different sizes: my normal shoe size (5), half a size up (5.5) and a full size up (6). The size 5 I could barely squeeze my foot into, although usually a size 5 is a little loose on me. The 5.5 fit comfortably, with just a little pressure around the toes that eased as I wore the shoes around the house for the afternoon and quickly stretched out the leather. The size 6 was most comfortable out of the box, but a little too loose around the ankle and heel. I would suggest a half size larger than your usual shoe size, to permit the easing of the soft leather and still maintain a snug but comfy fit (you don't want dance shoes that are too loose, which I think the full size up would have been for me).

Definitely order a full size larger. I wear a 7.5 - 8. Ordered 8.5 and returning for a 9.

These shoes are pretty great! I haven't worn a split-sole before but they are pretty comfy and look better and more mature than regular character shoes. I love the cushion and suede bottoms. Fit was pretty good too! I normally wear a 6 in most shoes but I wear a 6 1/2 in character shoes and so I bought a 6 1/2 and they are perfect! Not too small or too big!

This is the first time wearing Bloch sneakers as I've worn capezio for years. I had to go up 2 sizes, so take note that they are made on the small side. I've folk danced with them 3 times and my feet hurt. I can describe the shoes as flat and heavy, even though they are padded and have that clear air insert in the heal. My feet ached the next day. The problem with capezio is that I was an in between size. I think I'll be going back to capezios and size up with an insert.

I love them! They are lightweight, flexible, and overall, very comfortable. Good value. Just be sure to order 1/2 to 1 size bigger than your regular shoe size. (I was told this tends to be true of all brands of dance sneakers.)

These shoes are great! Very comfortable and light. I had to buy an 8 1/2 instead of my usual size 8, though. I wear them not only to dance but also around town with jeans and leggings. Excellent buy, top quality!

I was told to get a pair of jazz shoes to use for ballroom dance practice. I have narrow feet and got these because they had an elastic gore. I ordered my street shoe side and these shoes were rather short. While the shoe fit over my instep, there was a gap of more than an inch at the ankle and hence absolutely no support. These are going back. They are not appropriate for people with narrow feet.

I wanted a shoe with a real spin spot for Zumba. These would have worked but even the largest size (10) does not fit my normally size 9 1/2 foot. As someone who has done a lot of dancing in a suede sole dance shoe, I knew what I wanted and was pleased with the sole and spin spot. I also loved the trendy colors, but had to go with the Bloch Boost DRT Mesh Sneaker because of size and also because it has a roomier toe box.

These are excellent shoes! Please order one size larger than your street shoe. I wear a size 9 Bloch tie tap shoe, but needed a 10 in these!

I love these shoes for line dancing. The turning spot is large and works well with my bad knee. Originally I ordered a 1/2 size bigger but had to send them back without hassle. They sent the next size out without delay. I appreciated that. I have other Bloch dance shoes which I like, but these are better.

My feet measure 11¼C. For the last 40 years this size has been unavailable due to most shoes past size 10 do not come in half sizes. I was forced purchase size 12 to accommodate the extra ¼" of length. Size 12 has been unavailable in a C width forever so I tried D. That was too roomy, I might as well have worn the shoe box. Size 12B was a perfect width but it narrowed the toes which caused pain. To make matters worse, I have high arches. Most shoes that I have are uncomfortable because of no arch and store-bought arches do not work very well either. I was amazed when I found these funny looking sneakers. I ordered an 11½B, fully expecting to have to return them, but they were perfect! I will buy another. I am thrilled. I have not had shoes that fit correctly... ever!

I read all the reviews on this shoe about it running a size to a size and a half small. I was desperate to find a comfortable shoe for Zumba because nothing felt good to my feet. So I took a chance and ordered this shoe 1.5 sizes larger. It was a strange thing to do since I never wore a 10.5 ! However, the shoes fit great! They look like my regular size. They are very flexible also.

Love these shoes. I wear a 7 and ordered an 8 and they fit perfect. Very nice to dance to the quick Zumba steps. Also, there toe tip is a must to have.

Love that I can order dance shoes with the ease of returns at Zappos! I ordered both 1/2 and full size up and ended up keeping the 1/2 size up (street shoe 7.5; so kept the 8 in these); Loving the flex sole; Perfect for my cha cha, waltz, salsa, etc. training; Tan elongates the leg as well! I have an average width foot and fit perfect; T-strap definitely holds my foot in with a few more knotches to go; 8.5 was too big and could feel it gappy in the heel; I imagine the shoe with stretch over use.

I don't wear these shoes just for dancing! They are lightweight, flexible and very comfortable -- and especially good for people with high arches. An added bonus is they don't make your feet look like you are wearing 2 bricks! At first, I thought they had great arch support, but after wearing them all day, I would rate the arch support at moderate. As other reviewers have stated, the sizing is a little off. I ordered one full size larger than I usually wear in a closed toe shoe. After I added my orthotics, I wished I had ordered 1 1/2 sizes larger. Orthotics make the toe box a little too snug, but these shoes are little gems. I will wear them (with comfort) as long as I won't be on my feet all day. For that, I would need to order the next size up...and I just may do that!

I haven't been able to use these yet. But I think they will do just fine. I got a 9.5 instead of my normal 8.5 in athletic shoes.

These shoes are great for Zumba! But beware, they run very small. I had to exchange them twice for a bigger size. I have never worn shoes larger than size 8. I needed a size 10 in these shoes. The shoes have been worth the trouble, and Zappos made the exchange easy.
