Purchased for salsa dancing classes. Very flexible and thin sole and many ways to wear the strap. Wish the straps on the toe were a bit tighter so a full point would look more attractive.

I line dance, and this shoe fits the bill. Has just the right amount of slide for all the twists and turns. Love them.

Not completely happy with these as I had hoped to be. I wear a 8 1/2, so I ordered a 10 and too large, just barely. However, I will return without replacing them because there is no cushion in the heel at all. Otherwise, good shoe. Wish they worked.

I love these shoes! I've been doing Zumba and other aerobic classes for years now and just assumed that I would have to live with the knee pain and tingling, numb feet that came with it. These shoes, though, have quite possibly changed my life! I usually wear a 7.5 and run a little wide but not enough to wear a wide width, and I finally ended up fitting perfectly into a size 9 in these shoes. These have a large toe box (in a good way) and a sole perfect for twisting and turning. The split sole makes them super flexible while the wide base gives great stability. I will be ordering several extra pairs just in case they're discontinued!

I'm on a mission to find the perfect exercise shoe! I purchased these shoes specifically for Zumba. It's the first time I ordered THIS style of shoe and I found that for me, I still needed the support of the full sole going all the way across the shoe. I have high arches and a high instep; they just felt awkward. The other thing I didn't like was the top sides of the shoes. They are very nicely cushioned (a little too much for my feet)but they felt and looked awkward on my feet; maybe because I typically wear a size 5. I think they needed one more eyelet at the top for a more supportive fit. I think this is a well-made shoe just not the right style for my feet. I will try the Ryka Transition as it has so many great reviews. Zappos is GREAT for free shipping and returns. I know I will eventually find the perfect shoes!

Comfy dance shoe! My feet get hot very easily and the mesh helps them breathe. Based on other reviews, I did buy one size larger -- I'm a size 6 and a size 7 fit perfectly. (I originally got a size 7.5, but that felt just a little too loose and I had to pull the laces very tight.) And as always, A+ to Zappos shipping. The shoes arrived the day after I ordered them!

Wow, these feel great but I should've read the reviews. They do run about a size or more small. Will order the larger size for sure.

I bought these for line dancing. I do like the arch support but the soles are not slick enough for turns like the Capezio, so unfortunately have to return them even though I like the support and cushioning better.

I love these shoes. They fit perfectly and are very comfortable. I bought my actual street size and they fit better than Cinderella's glass slipper.

These are the most comfortable shoes I have bought. LOVE THEM You Should not wear these if you have to climb ladders as I was on a tour of a lighthouse and almost fell coming down the ladder. I was going to buy a pair for my granddaughter, but am afraid she might fall on the playground equipment.

Alert for people hunting for men's dance shoes... None of the Bloch dance sneakers he liked seemed to come in mens sizes, so I bought these for a man who wears 8.5 in mens shoes. My internet search said to go up 2 sizes to convert to mens sizes from womens, but we had to go up 3 sizes. 8.5 to 11.5. He's very happy with them.

These shoes look exactly like the picture online. Usually when you get something they aren't as bright. I like the way they fit and they were great for jazzercise. When I ordered them I was a little apprehensive about the smooth bottom because when they wear out from class I use them as a walking shoe and was concerned about slipping. They were a little slippery in class a few times, but they are manageable. I like them enough to keep them and the price was right. You will want to order a half size larger than normal though.

Definitely run small in length -- I'm normally a 9.5 or 10, and the 11 fit my foot length unfortunately these are made for a very wide foot. My narrow foot was swimming in this shoe, even with an added insole. Returning it. The leather is very stiff as well, not like the supple leather in my other dance shoes.

I normally wear a 10 or 10 1/2 dress shoe, and size 11 in athletic sneakers. The size 12 in Bloch sneakers fits perfect. I teach Zumba, and these are my preferred shoes. And, of course, you can't beat Zappos' service.

I took the advice of other reviewers and ordered a full size larger than my true size, and they fit perfectly. The upper and sole are both very flexible, which is okay for me but might be uncomfortable for someone who needs a lot of arch support. Super cute.

I made a mistake in the size shoe that I ordered. I am a size 10 in Men's shoes. I ordered a 10.5 but it was still way to small. what size do you suggest I order? I like the sneaker but I need a larger size.

I purchased this shoe for Groove (dance similar to Zumba) class. I ordered my size 10.5 and needed 11. Zappos, with their excellent customer service, sent out the new pair same day I received the original. I received next business day just in time for my audition to become an instructor. This is the first dance shoe I have ever purchased. I work out 5-6 days a week and have always used various sneakers. I love this shoe. I will never dance in another tennis shoe again. This shoe is very much underpriced for the feel, comfort and results it produces. I found it easy to move from side to side, elevate to my toes, spin around, squat down, open and close my legs quickly. Although, I have not had them for long and cannot speak to the durability, if I get 6 months use out of them, I will just purchase another pair. At this price, it will still be less expensive than the sneakers I usually purchase. I like that the shoe is solid black as it will match all my Zumba gear; no attention will be drawn to my foot. I have no complaints, and I will surely recommend this shoe.

This is my third pair of these shoes. I have been wearing the Bloch Boost Mesh Sneaker style for more than 10 years. I love the flexible arch, and that I have full of range of motion in these shoes including mobility in my ankles. I am not a dancer. I wear these as regular shoes in informal settings (including where I work). I like that they are lightweight, and I have found no difficulty with them in the rain. They generally last about 3-4 years of regular wear. They are not hiking or long-distance shoes, but they will hold up for regular about city walking on concrete.

Comfy, light, and ready to wear right out of the box! They're not the longest-lasting canvas slippers I've ever had, but that's okay. I used the Bloch website to determine my size, and had no problems, and I love that they come in Narrow. I've already ordered a second pair.

I bought these for line dancing after trying several different brands. These are comfortable, light weight and flexible. They pivot easily on the floor but are not too slippery. Other brands I have tried are heavy and clunky. These shoes run a bit small - I wear a size 7 and ordered these in an 8. They fit perfectly.

I bought these for my daughter for her school play. She said they were comfortable and fit her well. In her dance class, she dances barefoot, so can't speak to whether these work well for Jazz class.
