Interested in new Bloch products?
Bloch loved watching ballet and visited many dance studios. At one such studio, he noticed a young dancer who was having trouble staying on pointe. Bloch promised he would make her a better pair of shoes, and so he did. After that, Bloch´s reputation for making good dance shoes spread rapidly.
At Bloch, the respect the company has for its clients' art is infinite. Contributing to a dancer's artistry, in even the slightest way is the ultimate Bloch goal. Admittedly jealous of their clients' artistic ability, Bloch is proud to contribute confidence and beauty through the best dance footwear in the world.

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.Read more » « Show less March 4, 2006 by Sarah

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!

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.
I'd also recommend: Didn't find anything else that would work.

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.
