These shoes are wonderful for house or dancing. I wear a size 9 shoe and ordered size 7 and could have used a 7 1/2. My feet and ankles swell late in the day and a 7 1/2 would have been the best choice for me. The quality is excellent. I do some hard dancing on Saturday nights. I needed a shoe with a leather sole that would slide and couldn't find anything! These are perfect.

Very strange fit... I went down two sizes as other reviewer’s recommended but that might have been too much. If I was going to order these shoes again, I would subtract 1 1/2. The fit was the strangest thing; they were tight in the toes but gaped out across the ball of my foot. I didn't see any way to make them work.

I needed these for an adult ballet class. I wear a size 8 in dress shoes and 8.5 in boots and casual shoes. I ordered several sizes to compare the fit. Size 6 was the best fit.

I couldn't find any decent ballet shoes for my beginner daughter in big kid sizes (she is 7yo and wears a size 3). I decided to try the woman's sizes and these came in a 3. I didn't order down and I'm glad because the 3 was a perfect fit. The quality is great and so is the price. I am one happy ballet momma!

I love them! Having been a dancer in my younger years I've really been missing it, so I decided to order a new pair of ballet slippers. I always bought Capezio slippers in the past, but when Zappos didn't have my size in those I decided to try the Bloch instead. My typical shoe site is a 7 1/2 or 8, average width, depending on how pointed the toe is. I ordered a 5B in these and they are perfect. The tops are a little wide until you adjust the drawstring, which is typical of ballet slippers. I am very pleased with them.

I'd also recommend: Capezio

Much better fit for long narrow feet than other brands - I hadn't danced in 25+ years and wanted something simple for myself after my daughter began ballet classes. Size down 2.5 to 3 sizes from your dress shoe size. I am a 10 or 10.5 narrow and got these in 7.5 and 8 narrow to try both. I ended up keeping both--the smaller, snugger pair are best for dancing, but I use the slightly looser pair for yoga and pilates.
