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 bought these to wear to my salsa dancing class. I did a lot of research on which size to buy and got a 10 according to the recommendation by Zappos and other reviewers. I normally wear 8.5 to 9 (9 in Nike Women's) and have a fairly wide feet. I wanted to wear thick socks with the shoes, so I sized up to 10. 10 feels too big even with thick socks but the shoes are too narrow for me to wear even thicker socks. The problem is that the lacing doesn't go up far enough for me to cinch the top of the arch without cutting off circulation to the rest of the feet. I am swimming in these shoes! In addition, the sole is too grippy for turns even though there is a pivot point. I am very disappointed but I cannot return it as I've already worn the shoes to class twice.

it was hard to determine how the shoes fit overall because they felt a full size smaller. Width seemed appropriate but hard to determine arch support due to smaller fit.

I bought my 10 year old daughter these ballet slippers in a size 3 and a size 3.5. She is a 3.5 or 4 in regular school shoes and the 3.5 Dansoft was too big. The size 3 fit her just right. My only helpful suggestion is that Bloch should include even just a black and white print out of how ballet slippers should fit (they should fit differently than regular shoes..no space at the front of the toes), and how to fix up the laces and tuck them in. I am a new ballet mom, and I had to google and youtube both answers. I also bought Bloch Endura tights in size Large, the Capezio High Neck Tank Leotard in Large 10-12 in black, and the Bloch Matea V-front Shorts in 8/10 for Jazz. Aside from the 3.5 ballet slippers, everything fits great on my average-skinny 10 yr old.

I wanted shoes for Zumba class to wear instead of my sneakers. Unfortunately, these were super hard in the soles. I have no idea why the reviews are good. You can’t jump in these unless you like hard landings. Dancing in high heels would provide the same level of comfort. These went back and I’m back to my sneakers which are way more comfortable and cushiony.

I ordered 1.5 sizes larger at the advice of a friend who already owned a pair. They were out of black at the time, so I bought pink. I liked them so well, I'm now ordering a black pair. I thought about trying another brand in black, but why mess w/ success? If you do Zumba or line dance, they are terrific, allowing turns w/o torqueing the knee and hip. I do both and can hardly dance w/o them. I highly recommend.

This size 8 shoe fit my daughter perfectly. We first tried the Capezio Footlight, Jr. in a 7.5 Medium, and it was way too small and too tight, even though she normally wears a size 7 to 7.5 in all other shoes. A few reviews said the Bloch Broadway Lo was a bit wider, and we found this true. Also the quality and footbed cushion are better than the Capezio. By sizing up to an 8 (most reviews say go up one size), she got a comfortable fit for standing in long choral performances and walking between venues.

I read the reviews prior to purchasing and it's all over the place so I sized up a full size and they are too small! I ordered two more sizes to see which will work. The people at the UPS know me pretty well now... constantly returning!

This style runs slightly smaller than other Bloch split-sole ballet slippers and is a little rougher on the inside. Consider buying a half size larger. I prefer the Bloch Pro Elastic ballet slippers, but Zappos doesn't sell that style.

Bought my reg, shoe size (8) although in open toe dance shoes I wear a71/2 or 8. I could barely get my toes into the shoe w/o crumping my toes and could not stand up. I returned them for an 81/2 and these were still to short in the toes and the general fit of the shoe was to wide so they had to be returned. To bad because the heel height was perfect and they had leather full soles. I must say the service was triple A and I will use them again. A.C

I had read the reviews & ordered accordingly-I thought. I usually wear a 5 1/2 so started with the 6. Returned that for the 6 1/2. Even tried the 7. Sometyabout the toe box didn’t work for me. I was disappointed because this is a good and stylish shoe in soft leather. I’m glad I checked it out and -as always-this company excels in customer service. Never a hassle and ever accommodating!

I wanted a shoe for Zumba and these shoes are perfect! They allow me to move and glide easily through the dance steps. They are lightweight and very comfortable. As others have mentioned, they run small so I advise ordering at least 1/2 size up. The fit should be snug but not tight, so I wear a lightweight ped-type sock with them and they are fine. Zappos customer service is wonderful in every aspect!!

I love theses shoes I ordered a half of size up I wear a 5.5 I ordered a size 6. I have not tried them in with tights or stocking so u may want to order one size up for toe room, but don’t forget they stretch. Adorable . I put a vintage shoe clip on it too dress it up if I decide to wear to a special event. I can’t dance in high heels no one should dance in high heels unless they want issues down the road. These shoes are made for dancing and that just what they will do. Adorable and comfortable sexy shoes
