I ordered this shoe in many sizes to try because ballet sizing is so different. I ended up keeping the pair that was a full 3 sizes smaller than my street shoe size (10). A few different sizes fit but because I like my slippers very snug (since they will stretch), I went with a 7A. My feet are not excessively narrow but I did not want any bagging in the toe area since my toes are long and tapered. The 7.5A felt perfect out of the box but I wouldn't have wanted it to stretch more. The widths complicate things since, for example, an 8A feels that same as a 7.5B. And it's hit or miss with the slippers having the pre-sewn elastics. 3 out of 5 pairs that I ordered were pre-sewn; I suspect the others were older stock. I would definitely suggest trying multiple sizes and widths to get the right fit since Zappos has such a great return policy.

Per other reviewers we ordered these 2 and 1/2 sizes smaller than my daughter's true size. Her toes just touched the end of the shoe, so she could have worn them at this size but...although both of these shoes were marked D as in wide width, one of them was significantly roomier and wider through the toe box than the other. That one fit, but the narrower one did not fit. Therefore we are returning the shoe and asking for a 1/2 size up in D or wide, hoping this time both shoes will be wide.

We needed a wide shoe. This is wide, but the toe area is boxy. (If your toes are not squared off...of similar length, then you will have lots of extra room around the shorter toes.) Elastic bands across arch must be sewn by hand or via machine.

I need to go down 2 size from my running shoes to have a comfort fit. I also tried 2.5 size down and the shoes were too tight. I hope this helps for those who wear medium width shoes.

Absolutely the best split sole ballet slipper. I wore Bloch split soles my entire career. I took a 17-year break from dancing to have kids, and wasn't sure if I should order the 4. I'm a 7 in a street shoe. I ordered a 4.5 B. I definitely needed a 4, as it's loose on my heel in relief!
