These canvas shoes are required by our studio, so I bought another pair after having the last ones only 2 months. However, they get dirty fast and have a gap in her heel. I do like how they tighten with the tie and they are a nice pink color. However, the price here is very good. She wears a size 1 in street shoes and about a 13.5 in the ballet shoe. Honestly, I miss the ABT leather ones we used to buy.
I like these shoes for a couple of reasons--they fit well, are inexpensive, and they have only one elastic. The trend for two criss-crossing elastics is unnecessary for children(and most adults), and just makes the shoes more difficult for them to put on by themselves!
