Bloch

Bloch Logo
Bloch´s philosophy of listening to dancers is still as strong today as it was when Jacob Bloch made his first pair of pointe shoes in 1932. Bloch arrived from Europe in 1931 at the height of the Great Depression and began making shoes by hand in the workshop where he lived.

Bloch loved watching ballet and visited many dance studios. At one such studio, he noticed a young dancer who was having trouble staying on pointe. Bloch promised he would make her a better pair of shoes, and so he did. After that, Bloch´s reputation for making good dance shoes spread rapidly.

At Bloch, the respect the company has for its clients' art is infinite. Contributing to a dancer's artistry, in even the slightest way is the ultimate Bloch goal. Admittedly jealous of their clients' artistic ability, Bloch is proud to contribute confidence and beauty through the best dance footwear in the world.

I have worn these shoes before so I know to order 1 size larger than my regular shoes. I take a dance class 5 times a week and they are perfect. Enough cushion and support. I bought 2 pair so I can trade off each day.

Based on a previous purchase and current recommendations, I opted to go a full size larger than I normally would, and thank goodness! This feels fine now, though there is still a little pinching sometimes with the tongue/laces (one of the crosses hits the tongue in a weird spot if I don't adjust it). I got these for Jazzercise, which is the same purpose I had them for about 5 years ago. I'll be honest -- I should have remembered the slight feeling of instability when moving laterally. It still happens, which shouldn't be a surprise, since the soles round in at the edges. Sigh. If it wasn't for that, I think they'd be pretty great. They are DEFINITELY a studio shoe, though, FYI. The sole is split, which means do NOT wear them outside, ever. : )

I normally wear a size 8, and I need a generous toe box. In this shoe, I needed a size 9.5. Once I got the correct size, I was very happy with the shoe. It is super comfortable, light, and perfect for dance exercise classes.

Full 3 sizes too small! I was relieved to eventually get the size right. My son needed these for a stage costume. He is a size 7, and this worked in a 10. The material is soft and forgiving, without any hard pieces to dig in.

I wear a size 10 street shoe and thought that a 10 1/2 would be large enough, given the comments from others. However, these were way too small and too tight, so am returning.

Like the Capezio shoe in similar style, these fit well in the foot but were too short in the toe bed.

This tap shoe is beautiful for the price. I do reccomend that you buy one full size larger than your street size. I take a ladies size 10 and I needed a size 11 in these and they fit perfect with a moderate thickness type sock. Please Note! They come with grips that are optional and if you are not an experienced tap dancer YOU NEED TO HAVE THEM APPLIED at your local shoe repair which cost me an extra $15. Well worth the price because the soles of these shoes are a slippery metal type sole and that extra grip made the whole difference in my dange steps.

I ordered a size up as other reviewers suggested, and these shoes fit my middle-schooler perfectly. I had intended for there to be some extra room for growth, so I should have ordered an additional half size up. She reports that they are very comfortable.

This is well made and by all appearances a comfortable ballet shoe, but the sizing is not standard. Follow Zappos recommendation to order 3 sizes down from your regular shoe size. I followed one of the “most helpful” reviews in which the person said they ordered their daughter’s regular shoe size. These were huge and unfortunately she started ballet the following day so she had to go barefoot for her first class. A little embarrassing. So if you want them to fit correctly, Zappos knows what they’re talking about, follow their advice.

I'm usually a solid 8.5. I ordered size 9.5 and it was still too short. As others have said, the sizing is crazy. Why bother to give sizes when they're that inaccurate? This is an odd-looking shoe; I kinda liked it in black. But given the odd sizing, I just returned them.

I absolutely love them! I could dance easily and freely. Definitely one of the best sport shoes I have purchased. The size runs almost two sizes smaller. I normally wear size 8.5 and ordered 9.5 after reading customers reviews and still didn’t fit right. I ordered size 10 and it did fit perfectly. Thanks to Zappos for delivering both purchases super fast!

These would be great for most dancers, but unfortunately I have hard to fit and sensitive feet. The shoes were very small! I usually wear 7 1/2 or 8, but I ended up needing a 9. The wide width was fine, but the shoe itself was very hard and so I returned the shoes worried they would rub and irritate my feet bones.

The manufacturer recommended ordering down 3 sizes. The first pair I ordered was too small at 2 sizes down. I ended up with the 5.5. I’m a true 7 in street shoes. I would recommend 1.5 sizes down from you regular shoe size.

I ordered a size 9.5 even though my street shoe is an 8. This has worked out great - especially with using an insert for additional arch support. I use these for line dance classes. They are quite comfortable.

This is a great dancing shoe, but you need to get right size, I normally wear size 7, but this one end up 9 is perfect size. I bought a pair of 8, a little bit small but I decide to keep it. And I'm buying another pair of 9 so I can have better fit.

I normally wear an 8.5 in a flat, sometimes an 8 in a heel. I ordered a 9 and the size is perfect. I have a very narrow foot, and could have used a narrow width, but the strap on this shoe keeps my heel from slipping out. I chose a shoe with a strap for that very reason. I wear these for ballroom dance practice - never outdoors. They were comfortable right away and a huge improvement over the non-dance leather-soled shoes I had been wearing since I started lessons. They're not the most stylish shoe, but they are perfect for practice!

These sneakers have no arch support that I can realize. They are a bit weird looking. If it wasn't for the reviews I would have ordered my size, 5, but I ordered a 6. I'm mainly returning because the right heel has a clicking sound every time I step down. At first I thought there was something stuck to the heel, but there wasn't. Returning :(

I read the reviews and they were very helpful. I'm a 5 and I ordered a 6 and they fit. They are a little weird looking. The lace ties too low and doesn't give the ankles any support. I have to return these because the right shoe has a clicking/suction sound on the right heel. I thought at first there was something at the bottom of the shoe that was sticking to the floor but there was not. And that is why I need to return these. :(

I was scared that these wouldn’t fit my daughter because they look so small but they did. She is probably more a 8.5 and I purchased 8 but it fit with no room to spare. Fortunately it does the trick for her musical. She has the same jazz shoes now as all the rest of the kids so she’s happy.
