Both pairs of Bloch’s are at least 1 size smaller than stated size. I wear an 11M. The Sienna is a fabulous shoe, and I would love to own it, but my toes hang over the front and the width is narrow than a medium. Great quality.

I am very unhappy with these shoes. They are very painful when I dance the tango. I am very unhappy. I went my local shoe repair and had them stretched for a week and they still are uncomfortable! I would not recommend them to anyone. My friend bought the same shoe and is very unhappy.

These are among my most comfortable heels. Very cute, great for ballroom dancing, and no blisters! I wish they made them in white, I'd wear them to my own wedding.

These fit very well and very comfortable. My shoe size is between a 10.5 and 11, depending slightly on the shoe; I ordered the 10.5 at first and decided that it was a little tight, so went with the 11. Returning the 10.5 and getting the 11 was very easy and quick. The line and style of the shoe is very nice. They're comfortable to dance in - I wore them to a wedding where I stood for a couple hours as a bridesmaid, had a short break, then danced for three hours. The balls of my feet were a bit sore because the sole of these shoes is thinner than I'm used to and I was putting more of my weight there than I was used to, but I was standing for a very long time. I really like these shoes, and I'm pleased by Zappos' service.

I was looking for a comfortable and dressy shoe. My search seemed hopeless until I had the light bulb thought to look at ballroom dance shoes. The downside was the suede bottoms. I wanted these shoes for normal use. Problem solved. I found a shoe repair shop that put "normal" soles on the shoes. I plan to have a great time on New Year's Eve - dancing up a storm.

This is a lovely shoe, very well-crafted! I love how the heel is wider, offering more support and stability. And I love how you can wear the ankle strap in different ways. Plus the self-locking buckle is awesome. I have narrow feet, so I'm also really glad that this shoe actually fits me! A lovely, versatile dance shoe!

Fabulous, comfortable shoe. The bottom of this shoe is suede, which as a newbie dancer, I was not expecting. This is a good thing though! It makes turning and dancing easier. You can't wear these shoes outside because of that though. The only pitfall is that I find the heel sort of ugly. All dancing shoes I looked at were ugly to me though.

I absolutely love these shoes! I'm new to ballroom dancing and had no idea what it is I needed. On top of that I have narrow feet which made dancing shoe shopping difficult since I was told that I don't want them too loose. So, I talked to a few professional and semi-professional ballroom dancers and they gave me tips on how to fit myself for a pair of dancing shoes. Thank goodness for Zappos and its great CS! Okay, I normally wear a street size 7 and ordered a 7, 7.5, and an 8 (based on other reviewers to size up). With the size 7, my toes are all the way up to the edge, but not over. In normal street shoes, that would be an indication that the shoes are too short. Next 2 sizes up would have given me the length but they were too wide. After speaking to the dancers, I realized the size 7 was the proper fit. You want your toes to get as close to the top edge as possible without going over. You want the shoes to be fitted, but not snug (your feet will expand when you dance), and you want a nice and secure ankle strap. These shoes fit all the bills. These shoes were so comfortable! On my first night with them, I danced for 3 hours straight, no pain at all at the balls of my feet. I did get a little blister at the back of my ankles where the new leather rubbed, but that happens with just about all my new shoes as I have very sensitive skin. Nothing a little bandaid won't fix. I'm used to wearing heels, so the 2 1/4 in was not an issue for me. I could have gone higher. I might with my next pair. I highly recommend these shoes. They are not only comfortable but they are sexy looking! I got the nude and it goes with everything!

Brands I'd also recommend: No clue, I\'m too new :) But my dancer friends recommended Very Fine for practice shoes.

I am 64 years old. The most comfortable shoe for dancing all night ever. Sexy and pretty, too. Lots of compliments. However, order up a half size.

I purchased the Bloch Sienna for Ballroom dancing. I been using them for about two weeks and I love them. The shoes are light weight, simple but classic and the color matched my skin perfect. My experience with Zappos.com was outstanding-easy shopping and fast delivery. Thank you.

These are nice shoes. I bought them for Salsa. My perfect shoe was Capezio Peggi which is not made anymore. These shoes are just a tiny bit big, but are very comfortable. I use moleskin for that. The heels are very sharp. I have kicked myself. I prefer a smaller heel, even though most dancers prefer this height or higher.

I call these my magic dancing shoes! We started ballroom lessons and didn't take the plunge right away for shoes, but these make all the difference. The suede bottoms give plenty of slide and glide action, and the ankle strap makes you so confident that you're not going to lose a shoe in the middle of a turn. The heel height and width was perfect; not too high, not too skinny. A really solid feeling on the dance floor. The fit was great, but I usually need a wide shoe, so they may be too wide for a narrow person. I love the larger sizes that Zappos.com offers. This is my new "shoe store."

I love these shoes for dancing. Very well padded inside and with suede soles for pivoting. I can dance all night without foot pain. I also have Bloch Jasmin in two colors. I received these shoes in one day and they were cheaper than the dance shoe store.

This is my fifth pair of Bloch dance shoes. I have tried other brands, some more expensive and some less, but Bloch is the only brand that is consistently comfortable on my feet. Thank you, Zappos! You carry more styles of Bloch shoes than any other website I have found.

Love these shoes. I use them for salsa dancing. They are very comfortable. The heel is a great height and thick enough that it gives good support, not like a thin heel which is more wobbly. I love dancing in these shoes. I seem to like Bloch shoes the best for comfort and performance for salsa.

A great choice. They are very comfortable and can be worn for a long time without excessive foot fatigue. I wear them for swing dancing and they were great. I agree with the other reviewers, a great set of shoes and pretty on the foot!

I have purchased a lot of dance shoes, but this is the first time I have bought them online. As always in the past, Zappos has provided a product that is always what I hoped it would be. They are extremely comfortable and the fit is perfect. I bought this shoe in both colors. Thank you again, Zappos.

I like these shoes alot. At first I didn\'t think I would like the ankle wrap around strap, usually I get a t-strap style but I found that after wearing them a while, they provide more support to the ankle cup. the straps keep the foot in place instead of sliding all around in the shoe. Plus those self- buckeling buckles are a MIRACLE since I teach ballroom dancing I\'m always switching shoes and that is a real timesaver. The very best part of this shoe is the wider-than-normal heel. It is a most stable feeling, the wider heel. It\'s also a bit lower, 1.5 inch, but they feel and look very good on. Anyone who has shaky ankles or tore ligaments in the ankles will appreciate these shoes. The shoe leather is a nice quality. I may have to order these in a champagne colour as well. Also, if you look at the various shoe views, if you look at the one where you are looking at the back of the shoe/heel, some shoes have misaligned heels. the heel is crooked, not centered, making for a wobbly dance experience. Not these shoes! they are very well made. I much prefer the Bloch brand over the Capezio ballroom shoes. Nice job zappos for getting them into their stock!

These are great for Salsa Dancing - I have been salsa dancing for over 2 years, and I have been looking for some good dance shoes. I was so excited to see that Zappos was now carrying Bloch dressy dance shoes. I ordered them right away and WOW! They are awesome. I wore them to class and they were so comfortable - no blisters, no pinching, pure comfort. I also got several compliments about how nice they look. I am sold on these shoes for Latin dancing.

Very comfortable - This shoe is the most comfortable heel I've ever worn. After 4 straight hours of teaching salsa my feet started to hurt, but usually they hurt after 2! I usually wear a wide shoe, but this fit really well.

Well Made Dance Shoes - If you like quality, this is the one for you. Sturdy, supportive and flexible where needed. I love the buckles, it's worry-free since it's self-locking. It will not snag in the inner seam hemming of your pants.

I got a half size bigger since the description said it runs small, and found it to be right on. I am new to ballroom dance and these shoes have been good for helping me turn more easily. I require a lot of foot support, so I'm getting used to just the thin, flexible suede bottom, but my teacher tells me this is normal and the more I wear them the longer my feet can tolerate the minimal cushion. They look nice on the foot, the hell is comfortable. Overall I would recommend these shoes.
