Love these shoes. I wear a 7 and ordered an 8 and they fit perfect. Very nice to dance to the quick Zumba steps. Also, there toe tip is a must to have.

Love that I can order dance shoes with the ease of returns at Zappos! I ordered both 1/2 and full size up and ended up keeping the 1/2 size up (street shoe 7.5; so kept the 8 in these); Loving the flex sole; Perfect for my cha cha, waltz, salsa, etc. training; Tan elongates the leg as well! I have an average width foot and fit perfect; T-strap definitely holds my foot in with a few more knotches to go; 8.5 was too big and could feel it gappy in the heel; I imagine the shoe with stretch over use.

I don't wear these shoes just for dancing! They are lightweight, flexible and very comfortable -- and especially good for people with high arches. An added bonus is they don't make your feet look like you are wearing 2 bricks! At first, I thought they had great arch support, but after wearing them all day, I would rate the arch support at moderate. As other reviewers have stated, the sizing is a little off. I ordered one full size larger than I usually wear in a closed toe shoe. After I added my orthotics, I wished I had ordered 1 1/2 sizes larger. Orthotics make the toe box a little too snug, but these shoes are little gems. I will wear them (with comfort) as long as I won't be on my feet all day. For that, I would need to order the next size up...and I just may do that!

I haven't been able to use these yet. But I think they will do just fine. I got a 9.5 instead of my normal 8.5 in athletic shoes.

These shoes are great for Zumba! But beware, they run very small. I had to exchange them twice for a bigger size. I have never worn shoes larger than size 8. I needed a size 10 in these shoes. The shoes have been worth the trouble, and Zappos made the exchange easy.

These shoes are very comfortable. I purchased them for zumba. The pivot is very smooth and promised great turning. However, my big toe hit the inner edge of the toe box even though there was some room at the tip. I normally wear a 7.5M and had tried sizes 8.5 and the 9. With room at the tip in the 9 I did not want to size up to the 9.5. So even though the footbed is wide enough to accommodate a wide foot, the shape of the toe box led me to return these shoes - sadly.

Comfortable, slip and rotate excellently. Lightweight. Good support and grip on the foot. Safe for dance. 6.5-7, use size 7 and perfect fit. Lovely colors, combined with everything. I love! This brand is excellent. Bought a Zumba brand and had detached bands of the sole in the first dance.

Like age, size is just a number, but...this shoe is beautiful but a full size too small. Take a whole size larger. It's just a number.

I bought these on specific recommendation from a thoughtful blog I'd read online, calling them a second best to LaDucas. Previously I'd owned a very firm classic pair of character shoes which had lasted for over 10 years. I'm about 3 rehearsals and 10 performances into these shoes with moderate dancing and I've lost part of a heel already. Apparently I wasn't the only one to read that blog because at least 5 other girls in my cast have the same shoes all purchased within the last 6 months. I have noticed that others have lost heels too and one has mentioned she's definitely going to need new shoes after this show. Yes the extra flex they give the arch make a pointed foot look lovely, but the strength of the shoe is seriously compromised and I feel extra wobbly on my heels because of it. All in all, they are comfortable and pretty you are only standing in a show, but the ankle injury risk and lesser quality does not outweigh the beauty.

Dance shoes need to be snug, but these shoes are not sized right. They seem sturdy and perfectly designed for dance exercise classes, but they must run at least a size too small. Even when they seemed to fit, they also didn't feel right.

Buy 2 to 3 sizes larger than what you normally wear. My shoe size is 6.5, and I wear 8.5 or 9 in these. Once you have the right size - they're fabulous. Excellent arch support and cushioning. They accommodate a wide foot. Perfect for my dance classes and they look good too.

You need to order a whole size up from your normal size in these. They are quite comfortable and I say that as someone who needs a lot of cushioning in my shoes. They are great for salsa dancing.

These are comfortable tights. Just be careful what you wear them with - as cotton, they can catch on your skirt! But I do like them.

It is very cute, well built and supportive. I always wear a 9.5 and these were snug. Will return for the next size up!

I've tried 3 pair of these shoes - size 9.5 (my normal size); size 10 and size 10.5. None of them fit! I would swear that they're all exactly the same size! So confused! I loved the style and the look - very frustrating!

I love this shoe for Zumba! Super light and comfortable for dancing. I normally wear a 9 in New Balance running shoes. I thought I could get by with a 9.5 in this shoe but ended up returning for a 10. 10 fits perfectly and am super pleased! Totally worth the purchase!

This shoe may not work if you have wide feet. I ordered the size I normally wear in Bloch Salsa shoes but the width of this jazz shoe was way too narrow for me. I'm going to have to switch to a different brand to find the wide width option. (I always shop with Zappos since they have the best return policy!) Aside from the width this seems like a nice shoe. The heel is soft and comfortable right out of the box. Although it doesn't have the traditional arch support you would find in a sneaker, the material really hugs your arch and ends up providing more support than a ballet slipper would.

These Bloch shoes are very nice. Need to order at least a half size larger though. Maybe a whole size larger.

The shoes are great and perfect for dance class. When was wearing gym shoes to zumba, the traction on the shoes held my foot in place when I wanted to turn. The result was a twisted knee. With these shoes I have traction where I need it, but I'm still able to glide and pivot on the floor. No more twisted knees! I usually wear a 9, I ordered a 9.5. The shoe is still a little tight, but I'm hoping it just needs to be broken in.

Two sizes too small. Great shoes...but I would have to cut off my toes. Looking at the reviews these are clearly mis-sized for the American consumer.
