    Fit: Runs very small

    Love the look, and seem like they would be comfortable but sizing is WAY off. It said to order street size. Street size wasn't available so I went up half a size hoping it would work and not be too big. It is the complete opposite - they are way to small. Same with the tap shoes we ordered and the dance shoes I ordered for her last year. Other than sizing issues the products are great but I can't keep buying shoes that don't fit. Think I will have to go local from now on.

    Hello Coleen! Thank you for sharing your experience with this shoe. We will address the issue with the manufacturer and make them aware of the sizing discrepancy. One of our friendly Customer Service representatives will contact you to rectify the situation.

    heel wouldn't stay on!

    by: TinyDancer7 - 05/21/2015

    Comfort: 4 star rating

    Durability: 3 star rating

    I am a dance teacher and was eager to try these in hopes of finding something my students could wear that would be very sleek and form fitting, yet supportive. They are VERY comfortable and light feeling, which I love, but the heel would not stay on! I have a slightly narrow heel, and every single time I go into a high releve the heel pops right off! So disappointed I can't wear them :(

    Runs SMALL!!

    by: frustrateddancemom - 01/28/2015

    The product itself it fine. However, the sizing is WAY off, even according the how to order. I have ordered these shoes 3 different times. According to the website my daughter needed a 6.5.....too small, went to a 7.5...too small....8 same thing. FINALLY went to a 8.5 before its was correct. With shipping fees and return fees it gets to be a hassle and a lot of unnecessary spending. It also happened to two other families in our studio!

    Comfortable great for flexibility

    by: krisdancemom - 09/04/2014

    Comfort: 5 star rating

    Durability: 3 star rating

    My daughter loves these shoes...she has had 5 pairs in 3 years. Those were for new sizes and after 9 mo. wear & tear we wanted a new pair for competitions. It allows her 100% flexibility and movement through her foot. Even though it is very thin and lightweight she has no issues with it staying on her foot when she turns. My only complaint would be is the top coating/color wears off very quickly and eventually a holes, this is b/c it is thin. Have to take the good with the bad. We had caramel color and were able to cover it with foundation makeup.

    This shoe is perfect for Marley floors.

    by: CeCe1 - 06/27/2014

    Comfort: 5 star rating

    Durability: 4 star rating

    This shoe is perfect for Marley floors. I love them! The way they work with the Marley gives a feel more similar to a ballet shoe. The leather sole allows easy turning without the resistance the rubber soles create. There is no heel to speak of so if you are not used to working in ballet shoes, you may find this shoe does not have enough substance for you. They run a bit small so I recommend a half size or full size up from street shoe.

    why not just advertise that this shoe is child size and make suggestions for adult sizes. I am so disappointed that I don't dare take a chance and order a larger size. I still cant believe how tiny the adult size 6 1/2 is and I have a small narrow foot. I can't imagine any adult able to get a foot in these shoes. sorry. just awful!!

    Extremely comfortable

    by: DanceTeacher6 - 05/05/2014

    Comfort: 5 star rating

    Durability: 4 star rating

    I purchased my first pair of Freeforms several years ago and I have bought nothing else since! They breathe well, conform to the foot and make the arch look beautiful! A few words of caution that I have discovered along the way: the black shoes are a little stiffer leather than the tan and take a little longer to stretch and they tend to dye the feet black. The more you use the shoes, the less dye will rub off. I teach dance, rather than take class, but they have held up well for me. Yes, they have a shorter life span than most shoes, but the comfort makes up for it 100%. They are so comfortable and look amazing! My students have commented multiple times on how 'cool' the shoes are and asked where they can get them :)

    It's A Tradeoff: Not Durable but Feels Incredible

    by: cvoz - 03/28/2014

    Comfort: 5 star rating

    Durability: 3 star rating

    I bought this shoe after dancing a year in a Capezio's 'E Series' slip on jazz shoe. I started taking a pretty intense jazz class with lots of turning and found them sticking to the marley on my turns which became very difficult. I was drawn to the suede bottoms on these shoes, and while I was hesitant to buy them due to some of the reviews, I am *so* glad I got these! This shoe is insanely comfortable... I feel like I'm not even wearing shoes at all when I have these on. The mesh arch makes allows your feet to breathe and makes you feel like you're barefoot which I personally love. The little strips of neoprene between the leather gives your foot plenty of stretch as well. The power mesh arch also melds to your foot and makes them look amazing when you dance. I fell in love with them at the first point of my toe. A huge difference in feel from the 'E Series'. And I got the turnability that I needed for my class! These things turn like a dream on marley, however, I tried this on wood and it was super slippery! So I would take that into account when ordering these. I also love the little detail of the strap on the heel as well. It gives it a nice little point of interest. I saw some reviews of others having problems with these straps falling down/off, but they have worked for me. I actually ordered a half size down after my E series stretching out a half size too big and found that is the case with these shoes as well. They were a little tight at first, but after the first few classes, they fit perfectly. I think ordering down helps with the strap issue as well. Okay. Now the sad part. These aren't going to be the shoe that you wear for years and years and years. If you are a beginner dancer or just trying out a class for fun and looking for something that is going to be super durable, I would wait and get these shoes later on. I haven't had any major issues yet, but can I already see the leather wearing down a little bit on my toes and the stitching for the suede bottom starting to loosen just a little bit and I've only had them for a few weeks. But honestly, the turnability and the feel on my foot are TOTALLY worth it. I'm thinking about ordering the beige and putting them aside only for auditions. If you are willing to trade durability for ease and turnability, definitely give this shoe a shot!

    the leather at the toe wear out really fast. I guess it depends on how much and how hard you dance in them, though. Other than that I love the shoe.

    Durability: 3 star rating

    When I first bought these, I thought they were my perfect shoe. Turning was a breeze! They had the perfect amount of traction on wood, marley, you name it! All of my dancer friends bought them. About a month later we had all gone back to our old shoes. The problem is there are so many seams on the inside! Every time I move my foot some random flap of fabric on the inside flips up! I will re-adjust, dance again, and some OTHER seam/piece of elastic/flap of fabric will bother me :/ I Would NOT recommend these to anyone!

    I am absolutely in love with these shoes. They are extremely comfortable and very easy to dance in. The sole of the shoes make them very easy to turn in. The only problem I had was they got a hole right under my big toe from how much I turn. I also can't wear the strap on my heel, I have to wear it across my foot. Besides the durability they are fabulous and really make you work your feet. :)

    Comfortable and Airy

    by: WITeacher12 - 02/05/2013

    Durability: 4 star rating

    I have ordered these several times in the Light Pink and have loved them. I recently tried them in the Black and found that there was a bit of a sizing difference. The Pink I would say are about a half size larger than the Black. They do tend to get a hole in the toe but it does take some time. I wear these about 6+ hours a week and the Pink ones have lasted as little as 6 months and as long as a year. Which for how often I wear them is pretty good. Any other shoe I have tried I replace with the same frequency. The Black ones however only lasted a month, I think the main reason is that I thought they would stretch out and didn't return them for the half size larger like I should have.

    I ordered these in the same size I ordered all the other capezio shoes she needed for classes. These run very small. I had read the review saying purchase a larger size and did not take the advice offered. I am returning the shoes and ordering an 11 for my daughter who wears a street size women's 9. I had ordered her a 9.5 previously. I will try to remember to post again after receiving the larger size.

    I liked how light these shoes are, almost like a ballet slipper. But they constantly slide off my heel. There is a heel strap that does practically nothing, that I ended up putting over my arch, rather than around my heel. Its very frustrating to keep pulling up your shoes while trying to dance!

    GET A SIZE LARGER THAN YOUR STREET SHOE.(Mine are too tight so I'm hoping they will stretch out and the bottom of the heel will be in the right place.) The leather is soft on the inside of the toe area and turning is real easy. Besides being too small I really like them.

  • HI! I ENJOY DANCING BAREFOOT TO LIVE BANDS, BUT HATE DIRTY BLACK FEET LATER. WILL THESE BE GOOD FOR

    by: JENNI SUN (03/17/2014 - Key West, Fl 33040, Usa) Age: 45 to 54

    HELLO! I AM CONSIDERING ORDERING THE ADULT "FREEFORM" SLIP-ON JAZZ SHOE BY CAPEZIO! I WEAR 7.5 (SANDALS), FOR 8 ARE TOO WIDE. I'VE READ MIXED REVIEWS ON SIZES RUNNING SMALL OR LARGE... WHAT SIZE SHOULD I ORDER? WILL THESE STRETCH OUT? HOW DO I CLEAN THEM? WILL THESE FREEFORM JAZZ SHOES BE SLIPPERY ON THE DANCE FLOOR? OR WILL MY FEET & SHOES HOLD ME TO THE DANCEFLOOR WHILE OFFERING ME FREEDOM OF MOVEMENT ALSO?! I DO LIKE TO SPIN A BIT, AND LOVE INVENTING MY OWN INTERPRETIVE DANCES, & OCCASIONALLY DANCE WITH OTHERS, BUT I DON'T WANT TO SLIP & FALL DOWN!! THIS IS ALL FOR MY FUN & ENTERTAINMENT IN KEY WEST, NOTHING PROFESSIONAL. DO YOU HAVE ANY OTHER SUGGESTIONS FOR OTHER SHOES/SLIPPERS FOR ME TO TRY FOR MY NEEDS? I WAS CHECKING OUT THE DANSOFT LEATHER #S0205L . THANK YOU FOR ANY HELP YOU CAN OFFER! ~ JENNI SUN

    The sizing that is recommended by the manufacturer for this shoe is that you order your street shoe size. These will form to your foot as well. The suede sole patches will help with the slipping.
    - DDS Customer Service (03/19/2014)

    I would get a size 8 these fit fairly tight to your foot and generally run a little small. Yes they do stretch as they are elastic. These might be slippery at first as the bottom will be very clean and smooth but that will go away with your 1st wearing. These shoes don't hold up like a formed dance or jazz shoe as the color might wear off the toes as they are fairly thin BUT will feel like you are in your bare feet. - Krisdancemom (09/05/2014)

  • sizing

    by: none (09/24/2013) Age: 35 to 44

    The reviews have conflicting references for sizing for this shoe. should you order 2 sizes up for the adult size as well? I wear an 8 street shoe. Some say the color you order plays a part in it as well. I plan on ordering the caramel shoe.

    Suggested Fitting: Women order street size This information is shown as a guide only and not a guarantee. Actual fitting may vary.
    - DDS Customer Service (09/26/2013)

    I recommend that you get the street size shoe that you have. I ordered a half of size bigger and they were slipping off my feet. The color doesn't play a part in having a bigger size shoe. - Princess (01/30/2014)

    All the reviews about the shoe running small are correct. I do have very small feet, so finding a shoe to conform is difficult for me. I wear a 5-5.5 in a street shoe and order a 6.5 in the Freeforms. The black leather is not quite as supple as the tan and takes longer to stretch. With the tan, they fit very well and are very soft which is an added plus. I would recommend ordering a full size to a size and a half larger than your street shoe in the caramel. - Danceteacher6 (05/05/2014)
