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.

I am enjoying these shoes. At first I had to get comfortable with the flexibility of the ball of the foot. Now that I have I love these shoes; they are comfortable, the heel of the shoe is solid and secure feeling. I did have to return once and get a full size larger glad I did. And as always Zappos made the exchange seamless. What a great company.

I bought these for a 1930's musical I was performing in. They look super cute, the higher heel is flattering to the leg. They do run small. I normally wear a 7 and I went up to an 8 in these.

I am new to performance, so I tried some of the cheaper character shoes. These were way better! They are comfortable (in the right size -- go at least 1 full size up), they form to your foot because they are all leather, and they look good.

I read the reviews before purchasing and ordered a half size larger than street shoes. Fit is perfect and the shoe is flexible and comfortable. No "breaking period" needed.

I LOVE THIS SHOE! I got it in the tan color and it looks beautiful on my skin. This shoe is so comfortable I want to wear it all the time! As per the other reviews, and since I have a narrow foot, I ordered a half size larger and within a few wears, it feels perfect. I do wish there was an option for a higher heel, the heel on this shoe is about 2 inches. The inner sole can get a little smelly so I would suggest airing them out everyday. These shoes really accentuate my foot and look beautiful when I point. The price is great. I would recommend this shoe to anyone from a first timer like myself to a veteran.

These shoes are great. They are flexible which makes them great for dancing. I ended up getting my normal shoe size (by going off the sizing chart) and while they're tight initially they fit perfectly after breaking them in.

Very high quality shoe that fit well after reading the reviews (ordered a wide and a 1/2 size larger). Shoe color is lighter than the picture. Extremely comfortable shoes, especially after dancing for many hours.

No need to break this shoe in! I've never worn such a comfortable dance shoe. They came straight out the box, onto my feet, and we were on the dance floor. I love the easy buckle and the spilt sole. I only wish it had an option for a higher heel. Besides that, these shoes are ideal!

I've had these shoes for almost a month now, and I love them! They are so beautiful and really show foot articulation, unlike some other character shoes. I followed other reviewers' advice and ordered up a half size. I'm a little concerned that they might stretch out a little bit, but so far they're staying true to when I got them.

This is a great shoe for theatrical productions. Many of the dancers I work with love the way this shoe feels and how it allows you to actually point your toe. The sole is suede and great for dance, yet easy to rubber if that is what is needed. I love that it comes in black, too, and that it is easy to paint. However, this shoe really is a full half size smaller than what it is marked. If you wear a size 7, you must get a 7.5 or it will not fit you. Trust me. I've ordered this shoe over 20 times. Dancers love it, but you need that half size bigger to make it fit!

I was glad I looked at the other reviews & ordered a size larger than I usually wear. These shoes are amazingly comfortable. I have a wide toe & high instep, so I have a difficult time finding shoes that fit. I love these & can dance for a couple of hours & still feel great.

Reviews helped me select this shoe for the stage. I love the flex feature; and the padding keeps my feet from tiring. I can stand up for hours in these shoes. The round toe is comfy. I escaped my last production with merely some rubbing on a little toe; but my right foot is wider than my left. I ordered one full size up as recommended and it was perfect. My arches are high. Highly recommend this character/dance shoe!

I received the brock shoe in the tan color. I tried it on and I love them. I ordered 1 whole size larger and it fits perfect and feels great. Very flexible material. Definitely recommend these shoes for dancing.

A sweet dancing shoe. I usually wear a 9, but ordered it in a 10 because of my wide feet. Glad I did. They feel fine as I step and walk. Zappos is an amazing shopping experience. The process of looking for what you want and what is available is so easy to understand and see what is available. The deals are great. The folks on the phones are always so kind and helpful and never seem to be put out with you or pushy. And the speed of delivery is unbelievable! It's like the store is just downtown and someone drove it to my house the next day! Love it! The best! Thank you Zappos!

I read all the previous comments and based on that ordered 3 different pairs ranging from 7 1\/2 ot 8 1\/2. Depending on the shoe I usually fit between a 7 1\/2 and an 8 but it turns out that the 8 1\/2 fit the best. I am so looking forward to wearing them for class and at my recital.

It took two days for them to process my order and ship out my shoes, and another two days for the shoes to arrive. Personally, when I first received them I was surprised at how 'plastic' and shiny the leather looked. The heel doesn't look like 2.5 inches. It looks more like 2 inches. When I wore them they made my feet look very chunky, but it did have excellent arch support and the T-strap lengthened my legs. The buckle is nifty though! I wear a street size 8 and ordered a size 9 for these shoes. They fit perfectly.

Way too small. I wear an 11 street shoe. These don't even come close. I suggest ordering an entire size larger. They look like they would have wonderful as practice shoes for tango. Too bad they don't come any larger.

I ADORE these shoes! Super comfortable, cute, light weight, and you can easily decorate them. This is the third pair I've bought and they are worth every penny. I've performed in these shoes all over the world and they have done well on many different floors.

I just started taking serious dance lessons and these shoes are incredible. Very comfortable and easy to move in. I wear medium width and they are slightly loose, but not a problem. I usually last about 10 minutes dancing in heels before I go barefoot, but I have taken 6 lessons at 1 1\/2 hours each and one dance party for three hours with no problem!
