Fantastic character shoes - if only all the Capezios fit this way. Do not order up a size or your arch will be in the wrong spot - have confirmed this with almost all the other dancers I know who own this shoe. We all have had to stick to our "street shoe" size. Toes may be a tad snug (but not painful or blister causing by any means), but better than being uncomfortable and unsupportive because of the arch issue. Does run narrower than marked - is a godsend for someone like me who has very narrow feet (but fairly normal width toes. Again this may actually be where my "snug toes" feeling comes in - or why so many people say to order a size up) so I can get away with the medium, because in the dance store, the narrow was actually too narrow for me! Very comfortable character shoe. Slightly "frumpy" looking with such a low heel, but for those with hard to fit feet who normally slide too far in normal heels (I have to wear mary jane style heels in my street shoes as well because of this); they're a great fit and easy to dance in. Would buy some to use as street shoes if only Capezio would sell a version with street soles.

This is good for a learn to dance class, not for going dancing. It needs to be a little dressier for going out dancing.

These shoes do run half size small, but they are functional and fairly stylish. The heels do not hold up very long if you have a lot of walking to do. My heels were worn down after only one wearing because of lots of walking on concrete.

Nice dancing shoes! Very comfortable, nice heel height. I like them very much. I wear anywhere between an 8.5-9.0 and I ended up keeping the 9.0 so I would say they run true to size and are a great value.

Love this dance shoe! I started taking a dance class and wondered how in the world I would be able to dance with heels. I'm use to walking in flip flops and flats. However, these are so comfortable, I can dance for hours. The only problem is they run small. I had to get a whole size bigger.

Great shoe for contra dancing - This shoe has a great fit and gives a little bit of height. It is a great look and functions well for those of us who like to contra dance.

Absolutely love these shoes. They're very comfortable. I took ballroom dancing in them, wore them for my entire wedding day (danced in them too), and have also just worn them as nice dress shoes. Other reviewers were correct about the size.

I am very happy that Zappos carries a full line of Capezio Dance shoes. They arrived promptly and fit perfectly. To buy locally I would have to travel 40 miles. It's nice to know I can purchase on line from a company with free shipping both ways in case I have a problem.

Great because it has that strap that will prevent the shoe from slipping off. However, the lining on the sole and heel are slippery and take a while to wear down.

Very comfy! I bought these for dancing in and I have no complaints. I took a cross-section of the advice in the earlier reviews and bought my normal size in a wide and they fit perfectly, plenty of room for the tows with good arch and ankle support. I am not usually someone who wears a wide shoe though, so I expect this means they run narrow.

These are the softest shoes! No breaking-in necessary! If you wear "between size", go to the bigger size and they'll fit perfectly.

I normally wear a 9W in a dress shoe with nylon hosiery. I ordered a 10.5W in this shoe and it seems to fit just right. Should be great for ballroom dancing.

These are great shoes. I ordered these for my 11 year old who is in the Show Choir and needed character shoes. It's a nice for the price since she'll outgrow them by the end of the school year.

I purchased the same shoe locally when I started ballroom dancing last September, but the local dance supply stores do not carry a large selection in the wider widths. I found it more convenient to order from Zappos.com where I had a large selection of colors, styles and sizes. They shipped it right out and I received my shoes in two days! The shoes are very comfortable on my feet, and that's especially important because I have had joint replacement on two of the toes of my right foot.

Upon reading other reviews, I decided to order this shoe one size larger and am glad I did! It was a perfect, comfortable fit. Also, the heel is just the right height -- enough to give you a little "lift". Along with the trusted Capezio name, what's not to love?

My daughter wears a woman's size 7 but luckily I read the other reviews and ordered a size up. Otherwise it fits fine, and I'm glad Zappos carries Capezios so I don't have to trek across town to the Capezio store.

You may know these as kickline shoes or brown character shoes. Bought these for my daughter and I ordered them 1/2 size larger than her street shoe, perfect fit!

It took a couple of tries to find the right size. They do run small. But, hands down, these are the most comfortable shoes I have ever owned!

Wow! I ordered the shoes on Sunday and they arrived on Tuesday! After reading the reviews, I decided to buy a 1/2 size bigger. I normally wear a solid 7, and the 7 1/2 fits perfectly. I don't have a wide foot, just normal and these seem to be perfect. I bought them for an upcoming community theater production I am in.
