    Perfect!

    by: Threelittles - 09/16/2015

    Comfort: 5 star rating

    Durability: 5 star rating

    I ordered these shoes for my 7 year old daughter. She typically wears between a 1.5 and a 2. I ordered these in the women's size 4 and they fit perfectly. A little room to grow, but not too much. I love the flexible, comfortable fit they provide. With all the different options to choose from I am very glad that I chose these and I will purchase these again when she grows out of them.

    exactly as stated

    by: kmc3 - 01/21/2014

    Comfort: 5 star rating

    My daughter is new to tap. Wears a 7.5 in ladies. Ordered her an 8.5 (one size larger, as recommended on the product page on this website.) Shoes fit perfectly! She is very picky about shoes pinching her feet, rubbing on her feet, etc. She said, after wearing them for about two hours (some practicing in garage, some just wearing them around the house to break them in) that they still felt great. Plus, the small heel makes her feel like she has "big girl" tap shoes, but is still managable for someone not used to heels. (She's 9 years old.)

    Warning: Runs Very Small

    by: PilotGal - 01/14/2014

    My daughter wears a woman's size 6 shoe so I ordered a 6 1/2 since I read that the shoes run small. The shoes, in fact, run VERY small. I compared the size 6 1/2 shoe I received to my daughter's size 6 street shoe. The tap shoes were at least 1 inch smaller. I'm returning these for a 7 1/2 instead. When ordering, I would order 1 1/2 sizes larger than the size worn for street shoes. Once we get the larger size, I'll be able to post a review on the shoe's comfort and durability.

    Sizing guide about half size off

    by: BNichols - 09/11/2013

    Comfort: 5 star rating

    Durability: 5 star rating

    I followed the sizing guide exactly and these are about a half to 3/4 size too big. Not enough to exchange them, but these seem to run a bit larger than the ballet & jazz shoes that I ordered. They seem very well made.

    Returned Twice

    by: Peace - 08/28/2013

    Comfort: 2 star rating

    Durability: 3 star rating

    I wouldn't have ordered these if this teacher at my new studio didn't insist... though I do not know why unless you're a beginner and have never worn a decent tap shoe. Maybe it's a power thing... It's important to order an entire size bigger than you expect; the width is really wide and I have a totally normal width foot. Most importantly - and this is really important - the "pitch" is horrible. It's nearly impossible to get your weight out of your heels. If you're used to wearing a theatrical-type tap shoe, this will be utter misery for you. The sound is very hollow and tinny. Upside? They're inexpensive. Needless to say, I didn't have to wear them to a single class to know they had to go back. If you're looking for this style, try the lace-up Capezio version.

    Nice shoes but they run small.

    by: Idontdancedontaskme - 06/04/2013

    Comfort: 4 star rating

    Durability: 4 star rating

    My daughter has used these this year and they are very durable. The only problem is that they tend to run small and she grew out of them very quickly when she had a growth spurt

    I just ordered these shoes on Sunday and received them today, Wednesday. Amazing service. I ordered as recommended a 1/2 size larger for my daughter and they fit beautifully. She has had trouble with the straps on other shoes hurting but these fit comfortably. I am very pleased because not only do they fit but the low heel is perfect. She is a tween and just moved from children's shoes to ladies and we had a terrible time finding dance shoes that didn't have a high heel but weren't baby-ish. This was the perfect pair.

    by: wheresmytiara - 05/30/2009 - San Diego,

    These were my first ever tap shoes in black. Loved them. I then went to the lace up screw-on tap shoes by Capezio, which are still my favorite lace ups and I use them in competitions. I have tried the Bloch lace ups; however, I did not like them, I could not stand on up on my toes. I just now got the tan pair and absolutely love them. I have a costume that is a skirt and needed tan taps and these shoes are perfect and cute. These shoes have wonderful sounds, hold up wonderfully during toe work, and look adorable. Great for beginners to advanced. I will be using these for competition and they are perfect. I would suggest these shoes to everyone.

    Great Tap Shoe!

    by: Trinalouise - 11/03/2008

    I usually have issues with blisters with new shoes, but these tap shoes were comfy right out of the box. No breaking in period, no blisters, just ready to tap. Nice sounding taps, and they have a flattering look to them. For a non-professional, these shoes are really good quality real, soft leather. I went with the "suggested fitting" and ordered 1 size larger than I wear in a street shoe, and I got the perfect fit. I usually wear an 8 (sometimes 8.5 street shoe), and I ordered a 9 in these and couldn't be happier.

    "I love these shoes". They are very awesome and work fantastic! They sound great & are very comfortable. I would recommend these shoes to everyone, but buy one size up to grow in if you're a preteen like me. All my friends in my dance company loved them and wanted to buy them for themselves!

    Best ever

    by: Anonymous - 07/14/2008 - Gtown, Ma,

    I love these tap shoes! I've had them for 3 years now (using them once or twice a week) They're great! The tan color matches most tights. The taps sounds really good. Toe stands are a breeze in them. I would recommend these shoes to anyone!!!

    I bought a size 8 for my daughter who has a size 7 street size shoe. It is a little bigger but wearing socks made it better. She loves wearing it, although it's rubbing against the ball on the side of her foot. Overall, it's great for beginners. I'll probably opt for the softer split sole later. The most I was happy about is how quick their shipment was! INCREDIBLE!

    Toe stands are easy again!!!

    by: Anonymous - 07/11/2007 - New York,

    These are the BEST buckle tap shoes I have ever worn! (I've worn Capezio U-Shell, Capezio Mary Jane, Illinois Theatrical brand and many others). I had to use these for competition and I was freaking out about toe stands. They have never been easier! It's like they're steel-toed or something. The taps sound good and I really like the color. I have a wide foot but these are fine. I like my tap shoes tight so I ordered my street shoe size (they're leather they stretch) and they work well, but I'd say go with a half size bigger if you like a little space.

    I have owned these for a couple months. The only thing I like about them is the sound they produce. They wore out way too quick to the point where I couldn't even dance in them.

    by: Mandi - 07/06/2006 - Wisconsin,

    Since I'm a beginner, when it comes to tap, I haven't tried a lot of shoes. BUT these were the first shoes I used and I really like them. They're comfortable and look pretty sharp. I've had them for almost a year now and they still look great.

    I don't actually own them, but I have tried them on before, several times. It's a very cute shoe, it's cute and it's durable. These will be my next pair of tap shoes.

  • leather

    by: Bobbie (01/21/2013)

    are these a real soft leather like the flex shoe?

    This is a different brand than the tap flex(capezio). The leather quality is different and this shoe would not be as flexible as the tap flex only because it is a different shoe.
    - DDS Customer Service (01/21/2013)

    Hi, Bobbie. No, they're not. They are a harder shoe but look durable. - Pilotgal (01/15/2014)
