I am a dancer and hope to clarify some fitting questions about these lovely shoes. They are built like a literal ballet slipper, meant to wear like a little leather sock, but in this case the sole is rubber instead of suede, and the whole shoe is made to withstand more than a few rehearsals. The stretching and toe bumps are the result of the shoe's ability to conform precisely to your foot and the way you move, very like a dancer's shoe. The break-in time happens quickly in these shoes because a dance shoe needs to be usable right away, and the less it keeps its shape and takes on yours, the better. If you are narrow-footed, get your true size. I have long, narrow slippers that run between a 9½ and 10½ (with a half-size difference from one foot to the other), and am frankly astounded by the perfect fit of size 10 after only a day or so of wear. I have three pairs and wear them everywhere, including onstage. It is hard to choose, but my white naplaks are my favorites and I like patent leather that feels like it has been broken-in better than your favorite sneakers. They can take a little more wet weather, too. I live in my Sloops and now suffer less from awful foot cramps because my foot is not fighting a shoe when I walk. These are made to become uniquely yours as you wear them. I would not trade mine for anything!

Great at first but after 2 amazing weeks they stretched out a size! It's hard to wear them at this point and I've had them less than a month. But what a great first 2 weeks.

I kept the faith, per a review from a dancer, that these shoes would adapt to my feet. They did not. They felt a size too small and certainly NOT wide enough. The pictures seemed to indicate a much malleable shoe. These were stiff and not adaptable.

Way too small! Very disappointing. Beautiful shoes but they came in a size 9 box (size ordered) but they fit like a 6!! I could barely get my toe in and the sole wasn't long enough for my foot. And neither shoe has any size marking on the shoe - inside or out. So it looks like they put wrong size shoes in the box. Beautiful looking. Very disappointed. Will not try again since the shoes had no size markings and cannot be sure to get right size.

I love these shoes, but they were 1/2 size too small. I have already returned them for the larger size. Very soft and feel great on!

Thanks to the previous reviewer that gave me a head's up that this works for feet with narrow heel. First ballet flat I could comfortably wear. Made me feel graceful as I walked about town yesterday!

I read so many reviews on these; some said to go up a 1/2 size, some said stick with your normal size because they will stretch out quite a bit. I almost always wear a 6, sometimes a 5.5. So since I tend to go smaller sometimes, I thought the 6 was the way to go on these. When I got them out of the box, they were ridiculously tight; barely could get my feet in them. However, someone said to give them at least 3 days of wearing to stretch out. So I did just that. Day one was tough. Day 2 a little better. Day 3, they are fine. I think I probably would have been ok with a 6.5, although I hate when shoes are too big, so I'm good with my choice. They do feel like ballet slippers now, smooth suede interior that is my exact foot shape.
