  • Video Description View the Video Description for this product! (Please note that the color shown in the video may no longer be available.)
  • The Bloch SFX Split Flex enables the dancer to better articulate as it works with the foot to provide a great range of movement and a beautiful, extended line when the dancer is pointing.

  • Smooth leather upper.
  • T-strap with adjustable buckle and small hidden elastic gore around ankle for a comfortable, personalized fit, allowing movement of the foot.

Love this shoe! The color is a bit lighter than shown which pleased me. I ordered a 1/2 size larger, but needed to go up a full size. Exchange was easy.

First I ordered the 9M, which was FAR too small for my TRUE size 9M right foot (my left is a true 9.5M). Next, I exchanged for a 9.5M, which is still far too snug on my right foot. I have given up on this fantastic style due to frustration. I understand that dance shoes can vary in size, but never thought I'd have this much trouble finding a pair of shoes to fit. Another reason I'm giving up: these shoes would have been worn mainly for street use, and the soles likely would not have held up for long, given their intended use.

Love that I can order dance shoes with the ease of returns at Zappos! I ordered both 1/2 and full size up and ended up keeping the 1/2 size up (street shoe 7.5; so kept the 8 in these); Loving the flex sole; Perfect for my cha cha, waltz, salsa, etc. training; Tan elongates the leg as well! I have an average width foot and fit perfect; T-strap definitely holds my foot in with a few more knotches to go; 8.5 was too big and could feel it gappy in the heel; I imagine the shoe with stretch over use.

I'd also recommend: Capezio

I bought these on specific recommendation from a thoughtful blog I'd read online, calling them a second best to LaDucas. Previously I'd owned a very firm classic pair of character shoes which had lasted for over 10 years. I'm about 3 rehearsals and 10 performances into these shoes with moderate dancing and I've lost part of a heel already. Apparently I wasn't the only one to read that blog because at least 5 other girls in my cast have the same shoes all purchased within the last 6 months. I have noticed that others have lost heels too and one has mentioned she's definitely going to need new shoes after this show. Yes the extra flex they give the arch make a pointed foot look lovely, but the strength of the shoe is seriously compromised and I feel extra wobbly on my heels because of it. All in all, they are comfortable and pretty you are only standing in a show, but the ankle injury risk and lesser quality does not outweigh the beauty.

I've tried 3 pair of these shoes - size 9.5 (my normal size); size 10 and size 10.5. None of them fit! I would swear that they're all exactly the same size! So confused! I loved the style and the look - very frustrating!

Great character shoe. My daughter is the dancer and says these are so comfortable. She is a size 5, I ordered a size 6 and it was perfect fit.

After reading the reviews I bought a size 8.5 when I usually wear an 8 in street shoes - sometimes 7.5 if open toed. These fit great. They are very well made in comparison to other brands I also purchased. Very Sturdy and secure while giving flexibility in the arch. I love them! Tonight will be the real test though...once I actually dance in them! :)
