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 quality 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. Today, their offerings have expanded to include crop tops, leggings, shorts and coverups. Bloch is proud to contribute confidence and beauty by offering the best dance footwear and clothing in the world.

I was really hoping for a revolutionary Jazzercise shoe after reading other reviews. But the ball of the foot is really flat - no grip - and I felt like I was sliding all over the floor. I think if you came from a dancing background, this might be ideal, but really didn't work for any lateral movements.

I followed the advice and got size 10 when I normally wear a 9. I also got wide which was nice as that’s normally not available in shoes I buy. Overall very comfortable. I like the lower heel and I wear flat canvas shoes 99% of the time and these still felt comfortable although I haven’t worn them in the wild yet.

I had originally purchased 2 different sizes as I was not sure about this brand. But it turned out this brand/shoe is True to Size! I was super happy to find this in Narrow, and it fit perfectly. Also, it is a good looking shoe and sounds great for Tap.

This is my fourth pair of Bloch sneakers for dancing. They run a little small. I normally wear a size 8, but I wear a size 8.5 in these shoes. I don't have a high arch, so the arch support provided in these shoes works for me. I teach a cardio dance class and these shoes truly have saved my knees. The pivot pad on the bottom of them allows for easy and safe turning that doesn't jam my knees. I highly recommend these to anyone who takes any kind of cardio dance or Zumba class.

I ordered a full size larger than I normally do. But the size that came and the width are perfect for me. I have a narrow foot and having the laces allows me to cinch them tight. Unfortunately they DID NOT improve my performance at Zumba, but the glide and slide were much better than I had in my used running shoes.

I ordered the super jazz and neo-flex, and in the end stayed with the super jazz in a size 8. I usually wear a 7.5 for dress shoes and 8 or 8.5 for running and hiking shoes. The super jazz was really comfortable for salsa. After an hour my toes were sore, but they are great shoes for spinning around.

I’m usually a size 7.5 and but I sized down to a 5.5 wide and this fit me. I purchased for adult ballet classes and they are generally effective at their job! Reasonable price too! Fast shipping so I can’t complain!

The pair I received looked washed out as if they had been worn, cleaned and then returned. However, they were so comfortable on my hard to fit feet, I decided to keep them. I wear a 7 N in most shoes or a 71/2 S. This pair was a 61/2 M.

These are lightweight and they make it easy to point your toe. I have a VERY narrow foot, so I have to pull the laces as tight as possible, but it works OK. Too bad they don't make them in narrow widths.

These run really small -- I'm not sure if dance shoes are supposed to fit more closely, but these hurt my toes, even a half size up from my usual size (11 instead of 10.5).

They need an option for TWO SIZES TOO SMALL. These are very, very small. But I knew that because I already had a pair that lasted me for years doing Jazzercise and Zumba. I only bought new because my teacher says to replace shoes after 100 classes, but the ones I had still felt new. Love these shoes for their support (I have plantar fasciitis) and comfort. But be prepared to order 2 full sizes up (I had to go with an 11.5, which is insane).

I originally purchased this shoe in my size but they were too tight. It was easy to ask for an exchange and the replacement came in a few days. I decided to get a full size larger which seem to work perfectly. I have used these shoes for my dance class and was very pleased. They are great dancing shoes.

Pain relief! I have painful calluses on the bottom of my metatarsal area and these shoes are cushy enough to relieve almost all of the pain. I wear them for BeMoved Dance. They look bulky, so I was surprised at how flexible they are, allowing full range of motion. I normally wear a 6.5 in other shoes. After trying several sizes, 7 was the right size for these shoes for me.

After reading the other reviews I ordered accordingly. The shoe appeared to be good quality but was not wide enough and the toe area was cramped. Sadly, we are returning!

I would have loved this shoe for ballroom dancing if it had been just a bit wider. I normally wear a 5 Medium but this was very narrow and tight in the toe area. I would not be able to order a larger size because the rest of the shoe fits as it should from toe to heel.
