Bloch definitely runs small. Order at least a full size up, more if you are wearing any padding to protect feet while dancing.

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.

This shoe is designed for dancers, which I am not, but it's perfect for me. I have a wide foot & most ladies shoes pinch my toes. I also find most heels excruciatingly painful. These shoes are simple, attractive, and very comfortable. I am very pleased.

I bought these shoes for a 20's theme party. They were reasonably priced, surprisingly comfortable and true to size. I thought since they weren't very inexpensive they would feel terrible, but that wasn't true. I won't be dancing in them so I don't know how they would hold up for that, but they seem great for my purpose.

These are nice shoes that are ery convenient. They offer nice flexibility for Latin dances, but one needs to get used to them (they were perfect after one hour!). After reading the reviews, I ordered a size larger. I had to request an exchange; half a size larger was just perfect. Thanks to Zappos I had no problems with the exchange, I am happy as always.

I tried a friends 8.5, I thought it felt a little small. I ordered a 9 and it still felt small. I sent it back and ordered a 9.5. The shoe says med width but the shoebox says W and it feels wide. These shoes are comfortable to dance in and have good arch support.

Comfortable dance shoe bought for ballroom dancing classes. I'm very glad I paid attention to the other reviewers regarding sizing of the Bloch shoes. As a result, I ordered this shoe in tan in three different sizes: my normal shoe size (5), half a size up (5.5) and a full size up (6). The size 5 I could barely squeeze my foot into, although usually a size 5 is a little loose on me. The 5.5 fit comfortably, with just a little pressure around the toes that eased as I wore the shoes around the house for the afternoon and quickly stretched out the leather. The size 6 was most comfortable out of the box, but a little too loose around the ankle and heel. I would suggest a half size larger than your usual shoe size, to permit the easing of the soft leather and still maintain a snug but comfy fit (you don't want dance shoes that are too loose, which I think the full size up would have been for me).
