Great quality ballet shoe. I went these for my daughter because the full soled shoe wasn't available in her size. Sizing was tricky- daughter wears a 4.5 and after a few smaller sizes of trial and error I kept the size 4.5-they are only a tad bigger. Thanks Zappos for your great customer service!

I ordered a half size up based on other reviews. They fit perfectly right out of the box. I have danced in them several times and they are super comfortable. The uppers are soft and do not bug my bunions at all. The tap sound is good, though I admit that I do not have a professional tapper's ear.

I have to say that I'm glad I didn't follow most recommendations on here to go a full size up, as the shoe would have fit me too big. I also do not wear thick socks with these, but the thin no show ankle kind. I'm a 7.5 and went with an 8, which is fine, but my regular size 7.5 would have fit more snug, and that's what you want when dancing for stability. I also have narrow feet, so I think you have to consider all of those factors when choosing your size.

I bought these for a Broadway/jazz dance class. I grew up dancing but the shoes were long since gone. This updated sneaker style is very different from the slip-on style of jazz shoes we wore in the 90's! It is awesome though! There are multiple flex points in the sole, so you can really articulate your feet to whatever degree necessary, but there is still more support than the slipper style jazz shoe. I am really liking mine! I am usually a size 10, but based on other reviews saying they ran small, I ordered both a 10½ and 11½ to see which might fit. The 10½ (half-size up from usual for me) works great.

Great for Zumba! The front sole has a spin disc to make certain turns easier on the foot and knee. Great support. Size up on these, I normally wear an 8 and I take a 91/2 for this shoe. Provides great stability in ankle area.

Great tap shoes. Ordering from Zappos much easier and faster than going from dance store to dance store trying to find your size in stock, and/or waiting for them to order it.

I bought these shoes to wear during dance. I have fallen arches and shin splints, and my regular dance shoes only aggravated them. These shoes were great in the beginning, but after about a month, they caused me EXTREME pain. Do not get these shoes if you have problematic arches! Since they are so flexible in that area, they offer little to no arch support. There are many other dancers at my school who don't have fallen arches, and who love these shoes, but I can't keep them on my feet for more than 10 minutes. These are great shoes, just not if you have foot problems.

These shoes were a godsend. I was having major knee problems after my jazz and hip hop classes and after a little tlc and getting the proper support from these shoes, I'm able to dance at least twice a week now with a Zumba class or two thrown in. As others have stated, they run very small, I'm a 8-8.5 and I ordered the 10. It fit snug at first and then I danced once and they're perfect now. I cannot emphasize enough, take care of your knees and get these shoes!

Bloch has a great concept with this shoe, however the ankle strap is too tight and too close to the ankle. My foot began "falling asleep" as soon as I tried them on, and I should add that my ankles are small. I ordered both size 7 and 8, and both had the same problem on my foot. The placement of the strap also prevents the shoe from making contact with your arch. In addition, all Bloch shoes I've owned tend to run small, but this one runs large in length. This is a new design for Bloch, and I loved the toeless feature and that portion of the shoe fit perfectly. I am hopeful Bloch will make some adjustments to this design, especially the ankle strap placement, because it has great potential as a studio shoe and would fill in a gap between jazz/dance shoes and sneakers.

I read the reviews prior to purchasing a size & half larger than my six & half. I loved them but felt they weren't snug enough so I returned & exchanged for a half size smaller. The seven & half are very comfortable now & a fit perfect. Loved the pink color, enjoyed wearing them to Zumba class. Customer service was awesome & very helpful with the exchange. I plan to buy a pair of walking sneakers next.

This is the most comfortable sneaker for Jazzercize that I've found. The arch support is wonderful and my feet and knees thank me for wearing the sneaker! No more pain!

I bought these and the Bloch Synchrony. I prefer the Synchrony. On the Zenith the heel is very stiff and the sole for the heel is placed to far forward. The shape of the sole was also a bit annoying.

I love these. The sizing was a little off for me though. I usually wear a 6 so I ordered a 4 because you are supposed to order 2 sizes down. I sent them back and in the end 6.5 fit me the best. These shoes are super comfortable and show off the nice arch in you foot. I also love how you don't have to deal with that elastic band that ties.

ORDER UP 1 to 1-1/2 sizes!! These sized for dancing shoes (now I know that that means) so not regular sizing. I usually wear an 11 and a 12-1/2 fit perfect. I love them! Out of the box they were comfortable. I was looking for a supportive shoe for Jazzercize class, and they work GREAT! Love them.

Great shoe at a great price. If you order a 1/2 size to big the shoe can be tightened to fit. I ordered 1/2 size larger than my daughter's street shoe size and they fit perfectly.

If you want leather ballet slippers for a serious ballet class, these are probably the least expensive choice. Follow the ordering instructions and order 3 sizes down from your street shoe size, or at least 2.5 sizes down. My regular shoe size is 7.5W or 8W, depending on the brand. I ordered 5E in this ballet slipper, and it fits perfectly for ballet class. If you plan to use these slippers for something other than ballet class, you might not want them that snug. I was pleasantly surprised when the slippers arrived with the elastics already sewn in, saving me the job of sewing them in.

I have worn these shoes for zumba for the last 3 years and I ordered a size 10 to replace my existing size 10's but when they arrived the Right foot shoe was not the same size as my original shoes. I measured the distance between the 2 glued on pieces under the foot at the inner left side of the underside of the shoe and the recent size 10 purchase is about 1/4 inch more of a gap which causes pain on the outer back size of the heel on the right foot. Someone from Virginia commented a similar problem in the review in July 2015. I hope Zappos looks into it, because I have just sent back my SECOND attempt at size 10 for this shoe and am about to start shopping elsewhere for another brand...

I did a lot of research before I chose these sneakers. Also checked with a friend who is a professional dance instructor. The consensus...Bloch is the best brand for dance shoes! My normal size is a 7, regular width shoe. After reading all the reviews, I opted for "one full size" larger...an 8. The rep I spoke with added expedited shipping, no charge. I have to admit, these shoes look clunky, online...even my husband said so. When I opened the box, I was pleasantly surprised, and when I put them on...I fell in love with them! My feet looked very small (not expected) and they are so comfortable, feeling much like a "slipper", but with support. However, I was concerned that I could feel the tips of my toes just barely touching the end of the shoe, and felt that, after extensive dancing and exercising, my toes would be complaining. I called Zappos and requested the next 1/2 size up...an 8 1/2. The rep said she would expedite the shipping, and I should get them the next day, no charge. She also emailed me both a UPS shipping return label and a USPS shipping return label, so that I could decide which would be easiest for me use. She instructed me to decide which size fit the best, and return the other pair, within 14 weeks. I got my new pair, the very next day, and the 8 1/2 gave me the tiniest bit more toe room. You definitely need to order 1 1/2 sizes bigger than your normal size! Shoes are perfect for Zumba, dance exercise, latin, etc., on any service. I have both hardwood floors and carpeting. No strain on my knees or any other part of my leg/foot. And I love the spin spot, under the ball of the foot! Shoes have 2 different ways to lace them up, giving you more options for perfect fit. I am considering buying a second pair...just because I can. Now...it doesn't get any better than this! Best dance sneakers, fantastic price, and best customer service...I am a Zappos customer for life!

Great fit right out of the box. Very comfortable. I usually wear a 7 and 7.5 so ordered 7.5 based on other reviews that it could run small.

This is a little gem, but while most Bloch shoes tend to run small, this one runs a bit large. I would normally order a size 8 in Bloch shoes even though my regular street shoe size is 7.5. I ordered the 8 since no half size option, and it feels loose in the arch and the strap feels too tight in the ankle due to the longer length. hoping the 7 will be ok since there was no half size option.

Per the reviews, we ordered 1 1/2 size larger than our usual size. We did send it back for a bit smaller - one full size larger than our regular size worked out right. As always, Zappos service and policies are awesome!
