  • Great, but very small!

    by: stephkest - 02/22/2016

    Comfort:

    Durability:

    I wear size 8 street shoes, and read in the reviews that everyone was having issues with the shoes being too big. I decided to get an 8, and it was probably 1 to 1.5 sizes too small! I am sending these back and reordering them in a larger size. Hopefully this will work out!

  • Good shoe

    by: TaraFlowers - 09/04/2015

    Comfort:

    Durability:

    My daughter has really been wanting a tap shoe with a flexible sole. I bought these and they are great, but I believe they run large. I chose the size based on the size chart. She is an 8, but I think they are really a 1/2 to a full size larger than "actual" size. She wore them so they cannot be returned which is a bummer. Since we are purchasing online, we depend on the size chart to be accurate, I always use it to choose which size to order. Maybe her foot will grow still, she is 12.

  • Too big and not flexible

    by: Dancer928 - 10/16/2014

    Comfort:

    Durability:

    This was the 2nd pair of tap shoes I ordered. The first ones I got were too small (I got size 9, my usual street shoe size). I got these in 9.5 and they were wayyyy too big. I tried to do a toe stand and was afraid of breaking an ankle, even with socks on :( I don't know what to do since there seems to be no tap shoe size that works for me, I guess I have to search in stores. Very disappointing. My old tap shoes are size 9 so I'm not sure why these ones weren't working for me. They also were very clunky and didn't seem to conform to my feet like my old ones do.

  • Good tap shoe

    by: JenR - 09/15/2014

    Comfort:

    I recently purchased these Bloch Tap shoes for my 10 year old daughter. She tried them on and said they felt great. She wore them to class was was very happy with the shoes. They didn't rub her ankles. The shoe part is a softer leather and the taps themselves have a nice sound. My daughter wears a street shoe size 6-6.5 and I bought the adult 6.5. She has some room to grow. I am hoping they hold up so that my younger son can wear these taps once she grows out of them.

    As a tap teacher these have been great. The quality is nice and they are pretty comfortable. I normally wear a 9-9.5 street shoe and am happy with these tap shoes in a size 9. They are a tiny bit snug but i like them fitting that way. Love the split sole bottoms.

    After being out of tap for 20 years, I am thrilled to throw out my old, uncomfortable character tap shoes and trade them in for comfort! I am 45, and loving the ability to tap away in comfort!

  • Too Big, Trying Again

    by: kash - 05/19/2014

    Comfort:

    Durability:

    I'm taking my first tap class as an adult and found these in my local dance store. I normally wear an 8.5-9 in street shoes so the girl brought me out a 9.5. They fit fine when I tried them on, but once I started tapping in class I realized they were a bit too long. I don't feel like I can fully use my front tap because it's too far away, if that makes sense. So I am trying a 9 and hopefully that will work. Because otherwise these are a great shoe. Super comfortable, the leather is supple and soft and you can tell they will last forever.

  • Great Shoe, hard to get size correct

    by: KDance86 - 05/07/2014

    Comfort:

    Durability:

    Like other reviewers, I was not sure what size to order. I looked at 2 other pairs of full-sole taps shoes that I already have (1 Bloch, 1 Capezio) and they are both size 8. I orderd the 8 and it was too long in the toe box. I went down to my street shoe of 71/2 and they were still too big. My toes are kinda short and they were like an inch from the tip of the shoe (NOT good for tip rolls...) So I sent those back and finally ended up with a 7. These fit great and are sooo comfy. I've never had split-soles, so these are fantastic! The good news is, it is very easy to make the returns to DDS, just follow their procedure for shoe returns. Definently worth the great price, just choose your sizing wisely.

    by: g9stein - 03/02/2014

    Comfort:

    Durability:

    Shoe is good quality soft leather, toes are stiffer than rest of shoe. The sizing chart recommends same or 1/2 size larger than street shoe size. I definitely needed the 1/2 size larger.

  • Wonderful

    by: ViviLovesToDance - 08/31/2013

    Comfort:

    Durability:

    I bought these shoes to replace my So Danca tap shoes, and while I was a little bit iffy on the price at first, it was totally worth it. You definitely get what you pay for with tap shoes. These shoes look great and make clear, loud sounds, and are durable. The split sole is great for toe work, which causes the sole to split from the shoe on full soled shoes. They are also extremely comfortable. I used to have to wear socks with my So Dancas, since they gave me blisters on my achilles tendon, whereas with these I can wear them without socks and not have a single blister. They may be a little pricey for a first time tap dancer, but if your an intermediate/advanced tapper and need great tap shoes that last, I would highly recommend these.

  • Great Shoes!

    by: tinydancer500 - 08/06/2013

    Comfort:

    Durability:

    I've had two pairs of these and I absolutely love them. I've had the ones I'm wearing now for about a year and a half and they're still in great condition. The middle of the sole of the shoe doesn't have a shank of any sort, as many tap shoes do, and this quality makes toe stands, wings, etc. much easier. They are very flexible and easy to move in. As far as sound goes, it's average. Compared to expensive, professional tap shoes, the taps are a little high pitch and not as rich in tone. But for the price, the sound is pretty good (you can just replace the taps if you need a richer tone). Get these shoes, they work well for both beginners and professionals. For sizing reference, I'm a 61/2 or sometimes a 7 and a 6M is perfect for me.

    I love these shoes! The inside lining is so soft and provides great comfort on my feet. The sound of the taps is so clear and loud. Only thing that I wish were different is that the shoe laces were longer because they are shorter than I would like. Although shoelaces are easy to purchase elsewhere. Other than that, I am completely satisfied with these tap shoes!

    I previously owned the Bloch full soul tap shoes and needed to advance to split sole. My old shoes were a size 10 and they fit perfectly. I wear a 9 1/2 street size so I ordered a half size larger like instructed and they were WAY too big. They are very comfortable just like my old ones, but the sizing is way off.

    I love these shoes. They're very comfortable, the tap tone is great and the flexibility far surpasses the Bloch shoes I had before (which after 8 years just had to go!)

    I bought these in March of this year and have been getting great use out of them. They fit great with or without socks and I can point my foot in them as well as I can in a jazz shoe. The tap sounds are very clear and I feel like I have really good control of my feet. I love these shoes!
