    THese are WAY too small. The size chart is inaccurate. I agree order 2-3 sizes up.

    When ordering these shoes, go UP by 2 sizes (2 or 3 letters depending on what size). For instance if your child wears a size 2 street shoe. The chart says to order an "F". You would actually need to order an "I" which is 2 sizes bigger but 3 letters up. If your child wears a 10 street shoe you would order a C instead of an A which is 2 sizes up and 2 letters up. It's a great shoe if only they could get the size chart corrected! Hope this helps!

    I have ordered these twice now. My daughter wears a size 1 street shoe, so I ordered an EM first, too small, next went up to FM again too small. The sizing chart for these ballet shoes are waaaaay off. They need to adjust so that people like me do not have to continually order, return, reorder etc. I suppose there is a chance I am reading the chart wrong, if I am shame on me, but I will no longer purchase shoes on line because of this way too much of a hassel.

    Great Slipper-Be Sure to Measure

    by: Leight - 11/13/2015

    Durability: 5 star rating

    I usually just go the instant gratification route and pick up a pair of slippers at Target. We needed specific ones for my little one's upcoming performance. Bought these based on her usual size 1 and it just barely fits. Ordered them at work when she wasn't there and was worried about timeliness...next time I'll wait and measure first. Great slipper otherwise!

    After reading reviews I went with one size bigger. Daughter is an 11 so I ordered the C which says it fits 12-12.5. Arrived the next day. They looked really small, but I still wanted to see if they would fit (this is her first pair) Slipped right on and tightened them for a perfect fit! She played around the house in them for a bit and didn't want to take them off!

    Too Small!

    by: sdtorres - 07/21/2015

    Durability: 4 star rating

    I ordered a size C (size 12) according to the size chart. Unfortunately, they were way too small. I could bare put them on my daughter's foot (11.5). After reading the reviews, I've decided to go two sizes up. I'm hoping these will work out *crosses fingers*. I'm sure the bungee string will help if they're a little loose. Other than that, they seem to be of good quality.

    Decent ballet slippers, but run way too

    by: AngelMommie - 07/17/2015

    Comfort: 5 star rating

    Durability: 4 star rating

    The only problem I'm having with the Sansha Ballet slippers is that they're running extremely small. If you have a pair of Sansha's it's easy, you just go up in size, but for my Daughter this was the first time converting to a Sansha pair and the conversion scale is just completely wrong. Size J is supposed to be equivalent to a street size 4.5 which is a size bigger than my Daughter's street shoes currently are and the Sansha ballet slippers are too tight. She can get them on, but they're too tight, which means after a bit of serious training her toes will poke a hole through the front. They'll do for the Summer ballet classes right now, but when the regular Season restarts in September she'll need a bigger pair. So even though I went a size bigger on the Sansha's than the conversion suggested, they're too tight. Other than the sizing issue, Sansha Ballet Slippers are great, they're nicely constructed and very comfortable canvas.

    We always prefer canvas shoes for ballet after years of trial and error with my oldest girl, and we always begin with split sole as it's the easiest transition. These run true to size, seem good and durable for a beginners shoe and great price!

    Have never really liked this shoe

    by: dancemadre - 04/24/2015

    Comfort: 1 star rating

    Durability: 5 star rating

    Going against the grain here, but despite their Russian name and your dance store steering you to these shoes with their pretty little mesh bag, I really don't like these shoes. Both daughters complained about them being uncomfortable in the heel area. When I looked into it, I could see that the heel cushioning definitely hits the foot in a weird place - not centered under the heel. We got out of these as fast as we got into them. One season! Try the Capezio Juliets (which have the bonus of pre-sewn elastics! Yeehaw!!)

    Our "go-to" slipper

    by: LaurieA - 07/29/2014

    Comfort: 5 star rating

    Durability: 4 star rating

    After years of leather, we switched to canvas and have found these to be our favorite. My daughter dances 5-7 hours per week so she really beats them up. They take the hit and (if she doesn't grow out of them first) usually hold up around six months. For the money, you can't beat them. She also says they are the most comfortable.

    "Runs small" is an understatement

    by: Danceur - 07/19/2014

    I followed the ratings and ordered a size above her street size. Painfully small. So, I measured her feet with a tape measure and ordered according to the sizing chart. She can still barely walk in them. I have to purchase ANOTHER pair, so I'll end up spending over three times the price!

    I am a dancer- and I ordered these ballet shoes for my niece to wear for her recital so she would have clean canvas shoes and they were at a great price since we would be purchasing a new pair when her classes begin again in August. The size chart says to order up a size from the street shoe- but the reviews said they size up they had ordered was still snug- so I ordered a size and a half up. She couldn't even get them over her heel. The shoes is beautiful and soft- but the sixing is incredibly incorrect.

    Sizing Nt Accurate

    by: mandy0567 - 05/16/2014

    shoes didn't even come close to fitting. I ordered per sizing for street size of a 3 and she wears a street size 2. So I even went big and the shoes were way too small. The sizing instructions should tell people that. Especially when you charge $6 to return them plus you pay the shipping to receive and return. Very disappointed. It isn't even worth returning them.

    Size G with a 7 year old and street size 13 - 1 was fine for a while and when she pulled the string out for the second time because she was saying they were too small she has been able to wear it without the string for this short period she was without any. buying H and I cause they last long enough. May need second for performances if used all year and requirements are strict.

    This is the second pair of these shoes that I have purchase for my daughter. She wears a street size 1 and I purchased a G, which were a little big, but by pulling the string, they fit comfortably with a little room to grow into. My daughter said these are the most comfortable shoes she has had (her first canvas pair, she had worn leather previously). The price can't be beat. I purchased the shoes in H for when she grows out of the G. The color is great, and on stage- looks the same as the other girls' shoes. I was initially worried that the canvas would soil more quickly than leather, but that does not seem to be happening. Awesome price, fast shipping- will continue to buy these shoes as she grows!

    by: LoriB - 07/20/2013

    Durability: 5 star rating

    My daughter wears a USA street shoe size of 1. Her feet measure 7 1/4 inches and a 1 corresponds to 7 1/4 inches on the size chart BUT she most definitely wears an H which corresponds to a size 3!!! The H fits her very very snugly with no heel room or toe room at all. If I had ordered her the E it would have been 3 sizes off! So be sure and order 3 sizes bigger than what is suggested.

    Seems to run big

    by: Katie - 01/12/2010 - Charleston, Sc,

    Comfort: 5 star rating

    Durability: 5 star rating

    Fit: Runs very large

    I cannot rate these as far as how they wear, as I bought these for my daughter when she outgrows her current shoes. I bought the C and D sizes since there seemed to be a lot of differences among reviewers as to how these fit, but they are both currently too big. Her street size is a 9 or 9.5, and she now wears Bloch Dansofts in 8.5. I anticipate her being able to wear the Cs next year. My only concern is that they might end up being a little baggy on her because she has very narrow feet and at first glance, they seem wide. But maybe after wearing them they will conform better to her feet. It's hard to find ballet slippers that are narrow. I like that they come with a bag. That's nice. Considering I paid 18.50 for her current shoes at our local dance shop, I really hope these work out because you can't beat the price.
