I got my shoes and fell in love with them. They are a comfortable fit, the leather on the shoe is soft but what got me the most is the sound of the taps! I love the way the taps sound, very crisp and clean is the best way I can describe it! I also bought the shoes one size up then I usually wear, I gave a size 10 so I bought an 11 and they fit perfectly. I am very pleased.

Being a seasoned Zumba instructor, I've found these to be extremely well-designed. Good support both through the arches, heel, and around the ankle. Excellent soles for easy pivoting. Love the color! Fun and comfy. I have wide feet due to bunions and although these are medium width, they fit very well and the mesh fabric stretches to suit my feet. However, since I normally take a 8.5 size, I feel a 9 would fit better and maybe open up a bit more space for my toes.

This is a great little shoe! I usually wear an 8 1/2, but ordered a size 9 after reading the reviews. It fit fine. I have bunions, and there was no discomfort. Am using these for low-impact aerobics combined with bands. I love the shoe because the bands stay put...no more bands sneaking up from under my foot and hurting me. They are cute too.

These are great for Zumba and Tai Chi, since the sole pivots so well. This brand runs really small, so I ordered 1.5 sizes bigger, which was fine, It's a shame these shoes don't come in a wide width.

Nice because it is very very light weight, but runs short. I normally wear a 7.5 M, bought an 8M and my big toes are smashed against the front of the shoe...going back.

So disappointed Bloch has changed its design to make the toe box narrower on all of its dance shoes. I typically wear a size 11 shoe (size 12 in Blochs). Well, if I could go up a half size, I would, but the biggest size available in this shoe is a 12. I've been wearing Blochs for years but now I'm going to have to go back to Nike, or another brand, because there's just not enough room in the toe box. Why, Bloch, why did you narrow the toe box? So disappointed.

Shoes look great and feel comfortable, but run very short in the toe. Ordered a full size larger than usual and still need to return and size up.

I bought these shoes as an exact replacement for another pair of Blochs I had worn out. I was so disappointed that the sizing had changed, or there was a manufacturing defect in the right shoe, and not enough room in the toe box--just the right shoe. I went ahead and wore them thinking I would eventually break them in. That was silly on my part. It never happened. Anyway, it's very uncomfortable dancing in them and now I'm looking for a different pair; however, the sizes are so weird on Blochs I don't know what I'm buying so I may go back to Nike. I'm so disappointed because the previous pair I owned (exactly like these!) were awesome.

Beautiful shoe - fits like a glove, as it should, since it is made by a professional dance shoemaker and has a soft leather sole for great footing on the dance floor. The buckle is a speed buckle, which greatly reduces in and out time, and there is a tiny bit of elastic to ease your foot into the front lattice. Wider heel base helps stabilize wobble. Highly recommended - only caveat: not best for outdoor events.

I bought these dance sneakers for tai chi class. They fit like a glove and yes I got a size bigger than my usual. Great arch support, lightweight, kept my feet cool.

These shoes are extremely comfortable. I am glad I followed the advice of other reviews to go up a size because my usual size most definitely would not have fit. Had Zumba today, these shoes made it so much easier to make the turns and steps. It felt a bit tight at first but now feels great. The shoe may not be all that attractive, but it is amazingly comfortable and perfect for Zumba.

I've only worn these once, but I liked them. They are very light weight and comfortable. I was able to make my turns just fine; I use them for line dancing. I have a wide foot, but the mesh on these shoes are very forgiving. I had to order 1 1/2 sizes larger than my normal size, and the fit is fine.

Typically I can wear anything from a 9 to 10 depending on the shoe. Most of the time 9.5 usually works best and 10a will have some extra room. Because this show is somewhat narrow with a fairly pointy toe I went with a 10. When I got them just looking at them I knew they were small and when I put them on they felt like I had 8.5s on!! No joke. I can't even believe how small they are. I'm going to try to order a larger size but I'm unsure if they will even have it. My advice order at least - full size up. Really great looking shoes and the quality is definitely on point however the sizing issue is a major issue.

I ordered one size larger, as was recommended in prior reviews, great fit. I wear these shoes in a Tai Chi class. Love them. Comfortable - perfect for this type of movement.

My new Zumba shoes! No break in time on these shoes. I read the reviews and they were very helpful. They do run narrow and need to order 1 size up.

I LOVED this shoe but it returns very small. I usually wear a 6 and ordered a 7 based on previous reviews. I needed to go two sizes up and order an 8 which is currently unavailable!

These run very small! I am not sure about the width and arch support, because the shoes were too small and I could not get my feet in them. They struck me as extremely stiff and inflexible. For reference, I wear a 7½ in Merrell Barefoot Pace Glove original.

I've used these shoes at Zumba 3 times now and they are very comfortable and allow me to do all of the turns without sticking or squeaking. Confession time - I have a bunion on my right foot and they swell, so I ordered a full size larger - no complaints. I loosen the laces when necessary. Now I can concentrate on learning the dance steps with less clumsiness (the shoes can't solve everything!).

These shoes run really small. I mean REALLY SMALL. I ordered a half size up from my usual sneaker size and could barely get my foot into the shoe. I compared them to a pair of New Balance sneakers in the same size and these are noticeably shorter and narrower. So my best advice is to order at least a full size up - maybe even a size and a half - if you want these to fit. If you have really wide feet, these shoes might not work for you. I'm going to exchange them - still don't know if they'll work, but they are really cute so I think it's worth trying. If that doesn't work, I'll go back to Ryka (which fits me just fine in my street shoe size).

I bought these sneakers for line-dancing as I was feeling some soreness in my feet. They are great and super light and comfortable. Just order at least one size larger as they run very small.

My daughter absolutely loved having this as her tap shoe for dance class last year. She is very picky & it took us forever to find a shoe that met her requirements: comfortable and pretty. After trying on literally dozens of other shoes, we found this one and it is perfect! The matte finish, slightly elevated heel & slightly pointed toe made her feel very grown up compared to other tap shoes that are patent leather with no heel and rounded toe. And the cute little buckle is really more of just a slide - no little stick to fit in the holes - so it's super easy to put on & take off. A winner all around! We'll definitely buy this shoe again in the next size up for next year's dance class!
