I bought these sneakers for Zumba. I'll be honest, I wasn't a big fan of the look of these shoes, but they got such rave reviews! I'm an overweight girl, and all other sneakers were hurting my feet and cutting off the circulation to my toes. I needed a wider shoe with room in the toe box. I LOVE THESE!!! I feel like I am putting slippers on my feet, and they offer support in all the right places! I had tried a few different "dance" sneakers with a look that I liked better, but these Blochs are the way to go! HIGHLY recommended. They do run very small. I normally wear a 8.5-9, and I ordered these in a 10, and they fit great.

Too bad, the shoes are nice but way too small for the average foot. The sizes posted are at least 1 to 1.5 smaller than indicated. They should indicate in product layout that they run really small. Why waste time for people having to return them because they are so small?

Like the shoe, but what is up with the bogus sizing? I normally wear an 8. I ordered a 9. I'm sending them back. The 9 felt like a 7! Order at least 2 full sizes bigger!

I have the Black Rockitt Dance Sneaker and now I want to order the pink ones, just so I know they are the new ones. I have really enjoyed these Capezio's for my Zumba class. My feet love them, as they are not even tired after an hour of continuous dance. Love them, and several people have purchased them, as they trust my 'expertise'. Thank-you for making such a great dance shoe!

Brands I'd also recommend: The low heeled tap shoe for cloggers, as you can put the extra taps on.

Great dance shoe- This is a great dance shoe I am using it for Argentine Tango. The shoe is comfortable and has a lot of padding, which I need right now because I have an injury under the ball of my foot and can't wear high heels. You need to buy it several sizes bigger though, it is very tight, and I ended up with a 10.5 and normally have an 8.5/9. The shoe looks bulky, but that is unavoidable with this style and comfort. There is a sweet spot under the ball of the foot for turns and spins and that works well. Zappos gave great service by lowering their price to compete with another online store. I rather buy from Zappos and they gave great service, as always!

I got these in pink (SO cute), always get compliments! I heeded the advice of others regarding the sizing. I'm normally about a 7.5, so I ordered a 9 (I'm never a 9). They fit but are snug even at that. If in doubt, order 2 full sizes up, you won't be sorry. Dance shoes are sized differently!

Sometimes the only way you can figure out what you like and what's working in a shoe is to pay attention to what you choose every day. After trying Naot and Mephisto and sending all (many styles and sizes) back, I bought these and with an orthotic insert or without, they feel right on my narrow, high-arched foot. I walk a mile and a half a day to my office in them, no twisted ankles when I take the short cut down the hill and encounter gullies, no sore back at the end of the day, and they look good with straight leg and boot cut pants. I'm obviously not using them for dance although as a former dancer I do feel that my foot needs the security of a high arched shoe that also has respect for the care of the ankle.

You don't need to be a dancer to want this shoe! It is the best walking shoe I ever have bought. The arch fits wonderfully and the mesh makes it very cool. I do not wear them in the rain. It is light and stylish. I usually wear a 12 but read the reviews and bought a 13 for a perfect fit.

I love these shoes, they are super comfortable. I am writing this review because it is hard to shop for shoes online and the reviews helped me. One thing that helped a lot is that fact that I read to buy them 2 sizes bigger, I wear a 9½ and bought them in an 11½. I think I might be able to wear an 11 but 11½ works fine too. They provide great support!

Love these shoes. I went with one size larger and the fit is amazing. I took 3 Zumba classes this week and the shoes performed as promised. No achy knees from being attached to the floor with the wrong kind of shoes. This is my first purchase from Zappos, but it won't be my last. Perfect delivery time and condition of product.

As a former ballet dancer, I knew Bloch's reputation for well made pointe shoes. Their DRT Mesh Sneaker is fabulous for my Zumba class! I can't recommended this shoe high enough. Great stability and cushioning too. The sole is made for pivot turns without torturing one's knees. I won't even consider another shoe! Buy it if you want quality in a well made and comfortable dance shoe!

I love these shoes for my Jazzercise work outs! They have excellent support in the arch and make my feet feel so much more comfortable than normal trainers! I won't do my Jazzercise class without them now. :)

I have been doing Zumba for over two years now and Bloch is the only company I would buy from for Zumba shoes. I tried on other dance shoes from other companies but this black Bloch was the only one which felt comfortable on my feet. The mesh design on the top of this shoe doesn't bother my bunions. I normally wear an 8 or 8-1/2 but the 9 fit me fine.

Again great shoes and service- These sneakers make dancing more fun than ever. I read all the reviews and advice to get 1 ½ sizes larger (I'm an 8 1/2 and ordered a 10) and they fit perfectly. The speed in which they were shipped was great. I had them 3 days earlier. UPS did a wonderful job again. It is so easy to browse on Zappos, easy to order and very reliable reviews.

Love this shoe! Thanks to previous reviews, I ordered a size 10 even though I usually wear an 8.5. They fit perfectly! I bought these shoes to do dance DVDs by Patrick Goudeau. My aerobic shoes did not enable me to spin, which was very frustrating. These shoes are wonderful, they are exactly what I needed! I can spin easily, yet there is enough support and cushioning for the jumps and other moves. I highly recommend them.

Really nice dance sneaker - I just got these. I'm from Sydney, Australia so always buy Bloch if possible. I'm a professional ballet dancer postop from 2 hip surgeries. Got these to wear in physical therapy etc. Re size - I got 1 1/2 sizes up per the other reviews but they were too big and the arch really wrinkled when I pointed my foot - my arch is quite high but moderate for a dancer. I returned and got 1 size up. These fit fine although the arch does still wrinkle some when I point, I think that is probably just how they fit my foot. They look very nice and do feel good also. Much nicer than any other dance sneakers. The heel is also low enough you can point without it digging into your achilles. I love the pink but note that it is darker than in the photos, especially the mesh part. Highly recommended, just know you may have to experiment with sizes. I'm size 8 street shoe, size 5 1/4 Bloch custom point shoe, and ended up with a 9 in this sneaker.

Brands I'd also recommend: Rocket Dog clogs - great for dancers after class!

Don't be a blockhead when you order this shoe - I like the look of this dance sneaker. I got the pink, and it's very cute. Just remember, if you don't normally buy dance shoes, that this is not sized like a street shoe. I normally wear a 10, and had to get an 11.5, with thin socks. The arch is flexible, for greater dance movement, and is not for people with serious arch support problems. I use these for Salsa Dance classes, and find they work great for spinning. I have heard that they can be hard on your knees, if you wear them a lot, but if you are looking for a shoe to alternate with your hi-heels in dance classes, I can strongly recommend these. They are saving the balls of my feet. Thank you Zappos again, for your convenient shopping.

Comfortable dance shoe! I ordered the pink ones because the black ones were not available in my size. I wear street size 8.5 but had to order a size 10 so that my toes felt comfortable. The shoes are light and they fit around my feet perfectly. We do a lot of stomping in our dance so these shoes helped with shock absorption.

Class Act All Around - GREAT shoe - stylish, comfortable, helps us klutzes dance a tiny bit better :> Definitely order at least one size up for wiggle room for toes. You want a snug fit but not a bound foot! Zappos is truly one of the finest places to deal with, as well. Excellent products and service.
