  • Basic Ballet Shoe---as expected!

    by: Barre7 - 07/27/2015

    Comfort:

    Durability:

    I teach in a multipurpose room. They try, but the floor is not pristine. sigh... So I bought black ballet shoes for the first time since I was 5! And I knew I'd need leather for durability. But I didn't want anything cheap that would just frustrate me. These are perfect! All the features I needed for dealing with that sub-par floor without cutting corners for my feet!

  • Excellent Ballet Slippers

    by: Rick - 05/16/2015

    Comfort:

    Durability:

    Bloch Dansofts are among my favorite ballet slippers. Besides wearing my Dansofts in the studio, I also wear them to the gym and around the house, so I've given them a pretty thorough testing over a span of years. I've found them to be very comfortable and durable as well as exceptionally good-looking, and the quality of workmanship and materials that goes into them is excellent. The value for the money is great, too. These slippers do run a bit large, though, so when ordering, choose a half to full size smaller than your street shoe size. You won't regret ordering a pair (or more!) of these awesome slippers.

    I wear a 7.5 in street shoes and so I sized down to a 5.5c but they were just too tight in the toe. I was going to exchange but I have a friend who they fit so happy birthday to her! I may buy another pair in a 6 in the future

  • Runs Large!

    by: BalletRebound - 02/12/2015

    Comfort:

    Durability:

    I couldn't tell if my old pair were a 3.5d or a 5.5d because the bottoms were so worn so i ordered how the instructions suggested: by ordering steer size. It turned out I needed a 3.5d rather than the 5.5d, which i didnt figure out until I got the 5.5d home and they were way too big! Returning them was fairly easy as well as the exchange process.

  • basic, durable, good ballet shoe

    by: Lovediscountdance - 12/28/2014

    Comfort:

    Durability:

    I'v worn these shoes for a long time and I know I can always count on them. I wear a size 8 in street shoe and and the 6 in these is perfect. Because they are leather, these ballet shoes stay cleaner and generally look better than any canvas shoe. However, these are not great at articulating the arch of the foot, the material tends to bunch up. If you are looking for a class shoe to practice your arch with, I would go for the Elastosplit X from Bloch. But if you need a shoe for performance, stick with these!

  • love this slipper

    by: MilitaryMommy - 11/20/2014

    Comfort:

    Durability:

    I bought this pair because we have the same in a child size and they are very durable and a great product for the price. My only complaint is that it is a bit hard to figure out the fit for a child. I bought a size 3.5 adult for my daughter who wears a size 2 kids after reading the sizing guidelines and other reviews. It was still about half a size too big. So I will order again to get a better fit. I think it may be just better to order the half size above what the street shoes are. I will order a 2.5 this time and try it.

  • Trouble sizing for kids sizing

    by: Wisconsin - 10/08/2014

    Comfort:

    I could not figure out the sizing for my 8-year old girl that wears a street size 2 and has a narrow foot. I read reviews, sizing charts (both on the website and off), and contacted customer service. I went up 1.5 sizes to convert to ladies, and down 2 sizes for dance shoes. I thought the 2B would give a little to grow. It was way too small and wide. I am ordering a 4A. I wish there was a place to try on shoes first or at least a length measurement for online purchases.

    by: ME12553 - 09/29/2014

    Bought these for my daughter and I should've listened to the size chart. These run big I think about 1/2 to 1 size bigger than regular shoe size. Couldn't rate durability and comfort because she never wore them we had to return them.

  • Perfect!

    by: inHISgrace - 03/16/2014

    Comfort:

    I have been looking for a few years for a full-sole ballet shoe that fits my foot comfortably and without sliding on my foot. This shoe is perfect! It comes up to the top of my heel and doesn't slide at all. I am a women's 9.5. My foot isn't wide, but in shoes that have narrow toes I have to go up to a 10. I ordered the 7.0C and am very happy with it. I've only had them a week, so I can't speak to durability, but they feel like they're good quality.

  • comfortable shoes definitely keeping

    by: ErinM - 02/03/2014

    Comfort:

    Durability:

    I bought a pair of these ballet slippers and a pair of the Adult Leather Split-Sole Ballet Slippers (SD10), because I ordered them online and wasn't sure which pair would fit better. I ended up returning the SD10's and kept the Dansoft pair. The Dansoft pair was really comfortable, true to size and fit (I wear a street shoe 9M and ordered the Dansoft shoe in 6.5C#, and had a nice full heel cup #which I prefer, as I don't care for a shorter heel cup#. The fully sewn elastic strap was nice, not too tight or too loose, and timesaving of course. My last pair of Bloch shoes #not sure if they were Dansoft or not, as I bought them in 2007 and they are well worn) was a split-sole, but I wanted to work on my arch a bit more so I bought the Dansoft full-sole for that. I would recommend these shoes.

    Im not a fan of leather shoes, but these seem like they will last a long time. Im a 6.5-7 Narrow but ordered a 4.5B, which fit perfectly but I shouldve gotten A. Note that the pink color is not the color in the box, more of a brown color, not matching satin ribbons.

  • Excellent quality great price!

    by: Chele21 - 09/07/2013

    Comfort:

    Durability:

    My six year old uses these every year and by the end they are still like new. We are able to pass them down to someone else to use again. Very comfortable. My daughter has a wide thick foot so we ordered a "D" width which fits great and we followed the sizing chart which was accurate for us. She wears a 2 in the junior (child 1-13.5)( junior 1-?) So we had to convert to adult according to the chart, anyway we followed the directions then ordered a .5 size bigger than recommended and its great she has enough room to grow through the year so we won't have to purchase another pair halfway through. Love them!!

    by: DebC - 09/06/2013

    Comfort:

    Durability:

    I got one pair of these years ago to work on my arch a bit more during classes. I've been looking for black street-shoes ballet flats at the mall, dsw, everywhere, but couldn't find any that were comfy! so I said, why not go for the real thing? so i recently ordered a pair in black...I put some insoles in, and they feel almost like normal street-shoes, but you can feel the ground more, which isn't a bad thing! =) For reference, I wear a 7M in most "dressier shoes" (like ballet flats or heels), and I get a 5.5 C in these.

  • Great fit

    by: Mom2Grlz - 08/27/2013

    Comfort:

    Durability:

    I got these for my 9 year old for her level 3 ballet class. She prefers the full sole to split sole and we are required to have leather ballet shoes. We ordered a size adult 2c. She normally wears a size 3 street shoe and these are a little big on her. Not so big that she can't dance in them, and they will probably fit her well by the end of the dance year (we just put a thin sock on and they fit fine). We usually buy secondhand, but these were such a good price I couldn't resist. She seems to like the Bloch brand the best.

  • Love these!

    by: Brielle - 08/14/2013

    Comfort:

    Durability:

    I've done ballet and other forms of dance off and on growing up. I bought these for a beginning ballet for non-majors college class, and they've served me well. They lasted through a whole semester of three classes per week, and they look like they'll be good for another while. They're very comfortable and easy to move in, and if you go by the sizing recommendation listed, you should find that they're true to size. I wear a 6.5 wide in street shoes and ordered a 3.5C (very meticulously measuring both my feet beforehand to make doubly sure, as I wanted to avoid the hassle of exchanging for a different size later on), and they fit perfectly! I hadn't owned another pair of ballet shoes since I was about 9, so I can't compare these to any others because I honestly don't remember, but as a beginning-level dancer with only a meager amount of experience, I think these shoes are wonderful.

    by: sddancer - 07/25/2013

    Comfort:

    Durability:

    I am a 4-5yr old assistant instructor and I just started Adult Ballet classes. I love the quality and the color of these slippers. I agree with the recommendation to order 2 1/2 sizes smaller than your street size shoe. Originally I ordered a size 6C (my street size is 8 and my foot is a little wide). They were a little too long. I exchanged them for a 5.5C and the fit is perfect! Slipper is beautiful and well made. I will purchase these again for sure. Very comfortable.

  • Average Ballet Slipper

    by: LillyPointeShoeReview - 02/17/2013

    Comfort:

    Durability:

    These are nice ballet slippers. They are average, but nice. As they are full sole, they won't look as nice on a low arch. If you have a really low arch like me, try a split sole shoe. I chose these because they were on sale at my local ballet shop. I also love that they only have one thin elastic, instead of two. If you are looking for Bloch pointe shoes, try Serenades. I bought them and these ballet slippers at the same time.

    This is my second pair of ballet slippers. I am a 6 1/2 street size and ordered a size 4 in these and they fit very tight at first, but after wearing them to a class they stretched a little and conformed to my foot. I don't have a very high arch and these shoes showed nicely what little I have.

  • Durable!

    by: BalletMomDeb - 12/16/2012

    Comfort:

    Durability:

    My DD's dance studio recommends a different brand of shoe which were fine 3 years ago. Around 2 years ago they must have changed production in some way because the pink started peeling. I gave up on the recommended brand when I opened a brand new box of shoes to find the pink peeling off before they were even worn. We bought these instead and have been very pleased. These have minimal scarring despite her classes and rehearsals increasing by double. The other brand would scar within weeks, but hers just started showing (6 months of wear). The only reason I'm buying a new pair is because they're looking a little tight and I want the next size up on hand when she finally outgrows them. The full sole is stiff which is great for young dancers looking to build foot strength. No pre-pointe work just yet for my little one so these are perfect.

    Comfort:

    Durability:

    Fit: Runs large

    These shoes do run big- I'm normally a size 8-8.5, and a size 7 is the perfect fit. Compared to the Amercian Ballet flats from Payless, these are ASTOUNDINGLY good quality for the price. Comfortable and perfect for beginners. They feel easily breakable though- avoid concrete/sidewalk because they'll rip!

  • Okay shoes

    by: Kat - 11/18/2009 - Florida,

    Comfort:

    Durability:

    Fit: Runs large

    These shoes are okay. They wear out too fast! I have had them for only four months now, and they already have holes on the toe! The leather also gets dirty very quickly. I need a split sole shoe next time, because my arch is too high for these! There is a giant white space in the middle of the arch in my shoe! I hope I can find a leather split sole shoe, because my school won't allow us to have canvas ballet shoes. Anyway, I would recommend these shoes to any dancer who dances a small amount of days a week. I only dance four days a week, yet I already need new shoes!

    Durability:

    Fit: Runs large

    I ordered two sizes of the shoe as I wasn't sure which would fit better. I'm normally a 6.5 wide or 7 medium in womens and I ordered both 4C and 4.5B. The 4C was comfortable but had a little extra room in the toes (not much, so if your feet are still growing it'd be good for you, but my feet aren't going to grow anymore) and the 4.5Bs are tighter on the width of my foot. I'm keeping the 4.5Bs as I don't want excess material on my toes. This is my first ballet slipper and I haven't started class yet so I can't speak to how it performs or compares to other shoes.
