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.

This is an adorable sneaker for someone with a narrow foot. It runs 1 full size small as well. If you don't have a narrow foot, don't order this shoe.

These are great dance shoes - I actually wore them for my wedding reception because I wanted something pretty that I could truly dance comfortably in. They were about 1/2 inch higher than I'm used to with a ballroom shoe but they were fairly stable and stayed comfortable for hours.

Big mistake buying these shoes. My feet had been hurting a lot during and after zumba, and after reading reviews I thought these shoes would help. Turns out they made it worse, because they have zero arch support. I've gone back to regular running shoes for zumba, with lots of arch support, and it is helping with my heal and soul pain.

Fit well but 1 size up. Sound is good. The strap is a little tough to get tight over the top of the foot but overall very happy.

There is something strange about Bloch ballet slippers that doesn't suit my foot. The heel pad is situated so far (toward the foot) that the stitching on it hits the middle my heel and that is intolerably painful. I've noticed this on the Zenith and the Dansoft split sole. Had to return.

I used this pair of shoes for Zumba. They are maybe better for other type of dance but they are not right for Zumba. I did not provide the size or width information about the shoes because: 1. the material of the shoes is so stretchable, my feet slide inside the shoes 2. the back of the shoes are so low that when my feet slide forward, the shoes come off I bought them a half size bigger so that I could slide the arch support inside but that made things worse; just 5 minutes dance after I put on the shoes, the shoes popped out twice. So I quickly had the arch support removed. After another 20 some minutes, I felt pain on the bottom of my feet; my feet later got blisters right above the arch near the center of my feet.

Wow. I had a wonderful pair of 10 year old Blochs that just gave up on me, so I decided to order comparable ones. These shoes are a piece of crap, and horribly uncomfortable. I have 3 pairs of Bloch jazz shoes, 2 pairs of Bloch tap shoes, and a pair of Bloch character shoes -- and I love them all. I am so disappointed in the quality of these shoes. I expected more from Bloch.

I bought these sneakers to do Tracy Anderson dance cardio. For me, they didn't have enough support. I felt unsteady and as though I was going to develop shin splints. Returning. PS - I followed other reviewers' advice and ordered a size up. These run quite small and narrow so it was definitely a good idea.

I bought these tap shoes for my 11 year old son. They are very high quality and he loves them. They are comfortable and very nice sounding. They are far superior to the cheaper ones available for kids.

I took everyone's word here and ordered a size larger and they are way too big. But they are great, comfy and stylish in a geeky, what kind of shoes are they kind of way. And I love the sweet spin spot and the way they make me want to leap all over my house.
