These shoes are wonderful for house or dancing. I wear a size 9 shoe and ordered size 7 and could have used a 7 1/2. My feet and ankles swell late in the day and a 7 1/2 would have been the best choice for me. The quality is excellent. I do some hard dancing on Saturday nights. I needed a shoe with a leather sole that would slide and couldn't find anything! These are perfect.

Very strange fit... I went down two sizes as other reviewer’s recommended but that might have been too much. If I was going to order these shoes again, I would subtract 1 1/2. The fit was the strangest thing; they were tight in the toes but gaped out across the ball of my foot. I didn't see any way to make them work.

These are such nice feeling shoes! They are basic ballet shoes, with just enough to cover the foot. Soft, almost buttery leather that is not thin either. This is a size 5½ and my shoe size is a women's 8.

Brands I'd also recommend: Avia, Saucony, New Balance, Nike

I use these as slippers in the house. We have wood floor and I feel like I just walk different in these vs. barefoot/socks. I find myself doing a little toe point while I'm cooking in the kitchen (though, I've never been a dancer, I do like to dance while I'm cooking!). Ordered down two sizes like everyone said to do. I have short boxy feet, so they are a little long, but plenty comfy.

These shoes were exactly what my daughter needed. They were comfortably and supported her the arch in her feet.

One full size smaller than normal, provided a perfect fit. They arrived in one business day, just in time for a dance recital. Am ordering another pair. Very comfortable!

I usually wear a 6.5, and I ordered these in a 5B. The shoe fit extremely well, but the leather sole was a little short, so it came to mid-heel. I also ordered these in black in a size 5.5B, and they were absolutely perfect. With the elastic laces, they were adjustable to provide a snug fit for bellydancing. I'm ordering another pair for tai chi. As for rating the sizing, it's hard as you also have to consider the manufacturer's recommendations. For me, 1 full size smaller than normal was perfect.

I purchased these for my 11 year old daughter. She is between sizes so I wasn't sure what to order. I ordered a couple sizes to make sure we got the right fit. As always, Zappos made the process easy and convenient with their return policy and my daughter is thrilled with her shoes. I order from Zappos regularly and love their service.

Love these shoes! I only ordered 2.5 sizes down and they fit like a glove. I really only ordered them because it seemed like a fun idea. I'm not in any ballet classes (not since I was 5 anyway), but when I wear these shoes at the grocery store or something I have to say they make me prance around more. I love it.

Serves my purpose - I'm wearing these shoes for my wedding - I'm taller than my fiancé and didn't want to add any height, plus I wanted something comfortable. These ballet slippers fit the bill. My only complaint is that they are pretty wide around the top - I had to really tighten up the drawstrings to make them fit. I wouldn't be able to wear them for serious dancing due to that issue, but they'll be fine for the wedding.

Comfy Shoe - I found the recommendation to order 3 sizes smaller to be true -- I was skeptical and only went down 2 and they're a little big. Plus, they are leather, they will stretch a bit.

Not as small as they say... I ordered this shoe for my daughter three sizes smaller than her actual size as recommended and they are tiny. Now I have to return them and order her regular size.

Feel like a kid again! I purchased these to wear around the house and I think they're great! I could have ordered a size smaller than I did, so if you're on the fence, go a size down.

Dancing - I had a really hard time trying to find a dance shoe with an E width. I bought a couple and this Bloch was the only brand that came close to fitting. It is still a little tight where the stitching is, but overall, I am very pleased. I would recommend this brand to anyone. Now, if I could just fine jazz shoes in an E width, I would be in heaven.

Good cheap dance shoe - I usually wear a 7.5 street shoe, but ordered a 6.5 and it fit pretty good. I could actually gone down to a 6 because it is leather and will stretch, plus dance slippers should fit very snug...but I wanted a little extra wiggle room in the toes, so I kept them. Not sure how they will last, but for now they are great.

Excellent Choice - I've only recently started taking dance classes and these shoes have been a great buy. I love that Zappos offers a wide selection in wide shoes. Elastic lace allows you to make sure the shoe fits snuggly without coming off or being too tight. Would buy again.

These shoes run true to size as far as Bloch is concerned. You need to go one size smaller than street shoe. I would go with a normal width even though you might have a wide foot because they stretch. I find them durable and comfortable as well.

Ballet slippers - We bought these slippers in white for a bride! She has very wide feet so we knew any typical shoes would not prove to be comfortable. These slippers were a perfect fit and will ensure she enjoys her day without suffering with sore feet. An added plus is the EXTRA quick shipment and easy return policy. I've ordered many times and have never been disappointed. I received your "customer satisfaction" e-mail and forwarded it to my co-workers at IBM! Wow...you're the best!!!

Brands I'd also recommend: I have loved every shoe I've ordered from Zappos!

Bloch "slipper" great little slipper - Adorable little shoe. I am using them for Tai Chi so although I didn't go as small as suggested, I did go smaller than my street shoe size. They do the job of allowing me to "feel" the floor. I don't reccomend them as house slippers though, as someone said they planned on using them for. Great shoe GREAT service

Great little beginner shoe. You may be able to find this shoe a little cheaper elsewhere, but if you must order online, Zappos' QUICK shipping and FREE return policy makes the little extra cost well worth it. I had to order TWO sizes down (not 3 as suggested).

Brands I'd also recommend: The Dansoft split sole is also a good shoe.

Bloch Dansoft - Great Value, Great Quality - The perfect shoe for my daughter's dance routine in the school play. They are great quality and fit perfectly. I plan to order a pair for myself to wear as house slippers. They look and feel great.

Fabulous! These shoes are so soft - the leather is great, very comfortable overall. I would say to order 2.5 sizes smaller than your street size for women, though, and stick with B width unless your feet are quite wide - I had to buy a C because B wasn't available and they are a bit wider than I would like them to be.

Wonderful Shoe and Service! As always, Zappos provided me with another great shoe at a great price. It is always a pleasure to receive my shipment so quickly. May I predict that Zappos' attention to quality, price and customer service will keep all of us shoe addicts happy for many years to come.
