    Fit: Runs large

    My son started out in ABT shoes from Payless because I put off buying shoes until the last minute and then when I had time to buy shoes the dance store was closed, and my stepson was dancing at the time, so I ended up with a 1 and a 1.5 in ABT shoes. I was surprised, then, since this web site says to order street size, because when I finally went to the dance store to have him fit in Blochs (since they're cheaper than the ABT shoes, and nicer) that he was in a size 1 with room to grow. He was going into size 2 shoes at the time. So for my son I order a full size smaller than his street shoes. I love these shoes, but will probably end up switching to a canvas split sole soon, as he is getting older and his feet are getting stronger.

    Fits for my narrow foot dancer

    Durability: 4 star rating

    We needed to get white ballet shoes for the nutcracker. All of the local stores only had the Capezio brand, which ran small in length but horribly wide (even in narrow). She uses bloch in the b width for ballet class, and these fit just like her pink ones... perfectly. She's now ready to perform!

    Run large but beautiful and well made

    by: ditbean - 07/09/2014

    Comfort: 5 star rating

    Durability: 5 star rating

    I used the chat option to speak with a representative about these ballet shoes. They are beautiful, well made and very comfortable. I bought two pairs for my girls who are both in ballet (ages 6 & 8). I followed the manufacturer's suggestion to buy them a half size larger (10.5 and 1.5) than my daughters regular street size in shoes (size 10 and 1). They are too big by about an inch/thumb size. I am hoping that they will grow in to them. I also asked what "B, C, D, E" meant next to size when you order. That refers to width. B is the narrowest. I ordered C for my girls which is fine once the shoes were tightened but otherwise would have been too wide. My girls wear regular width in their street shoes not narrow or wide.

    by: MM1013 - 06/20/2014

    We went to our local dance store, but they didn't have my daughter's size in stock so we ordered online. The shoes arrived quickly in excellent condition. The sizing has been close to street size (possibly slightly bigger but once the front ties are tightened it's perfect). Very happy with them.

    Durability: 5 star rating

    This is the 2nd pair of Dansoft ballet slippers we have owned. I bought the first pair a year ago, and purchased this pair because my daughter is a bigger size. I am really happy with these ballet slippers, there is practically no wear showing on the smaller slippers (also Bloch "Dansoft"), even though they were worn for almost a year. I will stick with Bloch because they are a great value. I know I will get at least 2 girls (if not 3!) to wear them for a full year of dance class!

    Very nice quality and product; however, my 7 year old's foot grew more than I realized, so the shoes fit too snug. Had to return, but would have kept if sizing worked (again, my own fault).

I ended up getting my shoe in 2 days, and for the same price I would've paid at the store! (after paying for the priority processing!) Very happy with the service. . .

    After reading the other reviews that you should order a size larger than your child's normal shoe size -- don't do it! They were way too big. I ended up sending it back and ordering her standard shoe size, which fits just perfect.

    Nice shoes but they run very small!

    by: dancemom44 - 08/16/2013

    Comfort: 4 star rating

    After reading other reviews, I order a pair of these shoes for my 4-1/2 yr old daughter. I order a 10.5c because she currently takes a 10 in shoes and she has normal width feet. Well, she couldn't get them on entirely, they're way too small! I'm going to have to return them and guess on another size. I think an 11.5 would fit, so I'm ordering a 12c so she'll have a little room. Other than small sizing, I really liked the quality of the shoes. They are a soft leather with what appears to be a durable sole. They seems better than the previous two pairs of shoes she wore from other manufacturers.

    Great Shoes And Fast Shipping!

    by: DMP1 - 10/11/2012

    Comfort: 5 star rating

    Fit: Runs very small

    I bought these for 3 of my daughters ages 3, 7 & 8. Their street sizes are 2.5, 1.5 and toddler 9. I bought the exact same street sizes in these for each of them and the are just the size that I wanted, which is a good fit with a little extra room for their growing feet. There is only about a half of an inch of "room to grow into" so it's not a lot and they will not be trying to dance in shoes that are way to big for them and I know they will last the whole year. I would suggest going a half a size smaller than the street shoe size for the "propper" fit. Other than the sizing confusion, these shoes are great and the shipping was VERY FAST! I ordered Mon 9am and they were shipped The Same Day at 3pm and arrived three days later all with the standard shipping process!!! AWESOME! :)

    Fit: Runs very small

    I read a bunch of reviews about the sizing being off. I was a little worried but these fit my daughter perfectly. I ordered her street shoe size and they're fine. There's a 1/2" to 1/4" room at the toe, which is a lot if you're a grown up, but perfect for a five-year-old, and just starting ballet. I ordered a "B" width and they're a little snug. These are leather and very soft and will stretch when they're worn in. They'd be too loose if we ordered wider shoes. They're perfect! We've ordered Bloch shoes before for my older daughter (for years) so I know they last. Good shoes!

    nice shoes

    by: beginnerballetmom - 07/14/2012

    Comfort: 4 star rating

    Fit: Runs very small

    I ordered these for my girls, and used your online recommendation of 1/2-1 size larger than their street shoes. Well, they arrived yesterday and they are WAY TOO SMALL. I had to go to a local shop to have them sized/fitted and we ended up getting a full size larger for one daughter, and 1.5 sizes larger for the other. Should reflect the recommendations accordingly. Now I have to pay to return them! too bad. If they were too big that would have been preferable to TOO SMALL. I don't know about durability, as we've had them less than 24 hours.

    Fit: Runs very small

    I read the rest of the reviews left on this item. I agree with some other mom's about choosing the correct size for these ballet shoes. My daughter wears size 9 in regular shoes. I got size 8.5 they ended up to be to small super tight. I just purchased a new pair from the store again hopefully I purchased the right size. I will post another comment once the new size arrives. Hopefully the new size 9.5 should do the trick. Stay tune for a new update. I like these ballet shoes very nice

    Strap is tight for high arch

    by: Jennifer P. - 03/05/2010 - Nj,

    Comfort: 4 star rating

    Durability: 4 star rating

    Fit: Runs very small

    This shoe seems ok for my 5 year old, but my only complaint is that after her dance class, which is one hour, she takes the shoe off and has a mark where the strap was, like the circulation in her foot is being cut off. She doesn't really complain but it looks painful! She does have a high arch though, so that may be why. I thought maybe it was just a defective shoe, so when she outgrew them we bought the next size, but they did the same exact thing too. I am afraid to cut the elastic in case the shoe falls off. Then I'll have to buy another pair. Her first shoe ever was capezio, and I don't remember that happening with those, so we may try capezio again. My other complaint is that the ties are really stiff and are always coming undone, which means my daughter runs out of class 2-3 times to have me tie her laces. ugh

    These shoes are great for just starting ballet but the strings keep on going back into the shoe and don't let you point your feet very easily. And after a while the soles start to harden up and can make you fall very easily.

    by: Stina - 08/27/2007 - Washington State,

    Fit: Runs very small

    This shoe has been used at my ballet school for the past 14 years by our 3yrs - pre-pointe level. The older girls like the split-sole kind but only if they are on pointe, can they switch. It's nice looking, forms to point of foot, it helps them strengthen their feet, it holds up, and a great price. Ballerinas stick the drawstring in so no worries about shoes coming untied. My daughter had her first pair last year and we made it all year in the same shoe. We just bought a 1/2 size bigger for this season. If your child has a very wide foot, you can get D and E width from your local dance store.

    Comfort: 4 star rating

    Durability: 4 star rating

    Fit: Runs very small

    We've just purchased our third pair of these shoes, so I guess my 3-year-old likes them! They are soft leather, and very durable. My daughter insists on wearing them as street shoes EVERY DAY, and they hold up until she outgrows them. The reasonable price makes buying three pair in one year more bearable as well. My only complaint about these (and my reason for only giving 4 stars) is that I am constantly having to tie these for her - - the elasticized ties come undone constantly, no matter how many knots I put in them. Still - I recommend them!
