    Fit: True to size

    These shoes are great! I'm usually a 8.5 in street shoes and I got a 6.5 and it fits perfectly. I absolutely love the elastic instead of drawstrings it makes everything easier. I've had these shoes for about 8 months and they don't have any tears or anything like that. My only complaint would be the heel of the shoe is kind of bunchy but its not that big of a deal. These are pretty good pair of shoes overall. I definitely recommend them!

    Fit: Runs large

    This is a good comfortable shoe that lasts a long time. The only reason I'm not giving it 5 stars is for the way it fits in the heel. There is too much fabric where you can almost pinch an inch at the base of the heel. I've tried smaller sizes, different widths,but nothing gets rid of it. I also tried shrinking them in the dryer which helped. Other than that, super comfortable and otherwise look nice.

    Fit: Runs large

    These were the first pair of ballet slippers I bought (for classes, but then the studio closed, so I just do at-home workouts). I have weird feet - they are on the wide side with really high instep and fairly high arch and I have long toes (hammertoe-like in that in a totally relaxed position, the first knuckle from the bottom is bent. My normal sandal size is a 7 or 7.5 and wide if it's an option. My normal non-sandal size is a 7.5W-8. These are comfortable in some respects - there is some bunching up around the toes and especially at the heel, but that doesn't bother me. What makes them unwearable for me is the elastic - what is supposed to make the comfortable - it just digs into the tops of my feet at the front and the elastic criss-cross strap is waaay too tight across my instep to be comfortable for more than a few minutes. I would say if you have a foot similar to mine, you'd probably be best off trying a different one. But if you don't have my foot issues, then these would be really comfortable. They do make the arches look super high! Oh, I got a size 6C in these.

    Fit: Runs very small

    I wear a size 9 shoe, I saw that the shoe runs small so I bought a size 7 and they were HUGE! I then bought a size 6 and they are still too big! they're ok enough to wear to rehearsal but they look funny so I'd never wear them to perform. I need a 5 or 5.5. I love the elastic around the top to take pressure off where a regular tied slipper pinches my heel. If you get the right size it's worth it but watch out.

    Fits like a glove

    Comfort: 4 star rating

    Durability: 4 star rating

    I've been using Bloch split-sole leather shoes since I started dancing 15 years ago but have wanted to try canvas. I went 3 sizes smaller and picked the same width as my leather shoes. These are a perfect fit, but I can say they run much narrower than the leather shoes. My only complaint is that the heels are a cut bit low and there's not much padding on the ball of the foot. Otherwise, a beautiful, soft shoe that makes my feet look great.

    We usually use the Elastosplit, but tried this because the Elastosplit was on back order. My daughter wore it ONE WEEK and it split at the seam on the bottom. There was no way to repair it. Something is wrong with this style. We usually love Bloch shoes.

    Bad Fit and Bad Color

    by: Booch - 11/16/2015

    I bought these because a friend recommended them. However, when I finally received my order, I was very disappointed. I followed the sizing directions (which were not helpful at all) and they were way too big. They made my foot look extra long, were baggy around my toes and overall not flattering. With my ballet tights, the color (pink) was awful and interrupted my line. As I said, a friend recommended them to me so I am sure the shoe works for some people, but I would strongly recommended trying them off before ordering them (if possible). If you have to order them online, order small, at least 3 sizes!!

    Seemed Weird At First, But I Love Them Now

    Comfort: 5 star rating

    Durability: 5 star rating

    The toe and heel when I first purchased these shoes seemed a little weird and big. But after wearing them for a few classes they fit like a glove. They're super flattering, and they look like you're almost not wearing shoes. It's now almost two years later and these shoes are still going strong! They have a bit of wear on the toes, but that's to be expected with any canvas shoes. I will be re-purchasing these shoes after they are completely worn out.

    Excellent Ballet Shoe!

    by: Sooz - 10/07/2015

    Comfort: 5 star rating

    Durability: 3 star rating

    Runs a bit large because it's made of canvas, but if you figure out your correct size, it's great! I'm used to a tight-fitting ballet shoe so for me 3-1/2 sizes smaller and 1 size wider than my street shoe was the ticket. Canvas doesn't last as long as leather but the comfort from 1st putting them on is lovely. No breaking-in these babies! And the elastic all around the edges makes for a nice, snug feel. Have had 4 pairs, will have many more [as long as they keep making them!].

    Love these!

    by: Mackenzieh3 - 08/27/2015

    Comfort: 4 star rating

    I have always worn leather slippers because my studio required them and finally I am allowed to wear canvas shoes to class so these are my first pair of canvas ones! I am usually a size 8 in street shoes and have a normal/ slightly broad foot (i wear normal width shoes). I used the size chart and decided to order a size 6c ( B is a narrow foot, C is normal feet, and D is a wide foot). When I tried them on the width was perfect and they were super comfortable however they were slightly too large in the heel. So I'm going to exchange them for a 5.5c. I love the elastic band instead of a normal drawstring, it hugs my foot better and shows off the arches that I don't have ! I haven't danced in them yet but I definitely love them so far!

    Looked like an awesome shoe, but I just dont think its the right fit. My foot is wide but it was still snug on the side, and did run big in the toe and heel. I would have exchange it but the price for exchanges are ridiculous so I shall make them work.

    Great shoe, love the elastic

    Durability: 4 star rating

    I got this product fairly quick, and when it came in the mail I was so exited. My street shoe size varies from an 8.5 to a 9, and I have a wider than average foot, but not really enough to be called wide, so I got 6.5C. When I tried on the shoe, it gapped on the heel, and was too long in the toe area. I took it to my ballet instructor, for her ideas on how it fits, and she said that they were on the bigger side, and to order a half size down, but with the same width, so I followed her instructions. When I got the correct size, they fit like a glove, and all of my dance friends are jealous, since they had to cut their drawstrings, and tuck them in. Overall, I love this shoe, itreally makes my arch look great, since I don't have the best arch.

    Comfortable shoe, not the right fit.

    by: LizzP - 07/15/2015

    Comfort: 3 star rating

    Durability: 4 star rating

    Sadly, my long and very narrow feet made this shoe impossible for me to wear, despite getting the narrowest width, and I had to return them. It was snug in the arch, but baggy on the sides of the toes and heel--despite the fact that length wise they were a bit short. I liked the elastic instead of a drawstring, because those tend to put too much pressure on my achilles. Friends of mine have worn these and loved them, and they've had no problems with durability or size; but alas the shoe is not for me.

    I love these ballet flats! They feel so light on my feet and form to my arches so well. Before these, I danced in Sansha Pros and now I don't think I could ever go back. I normally wear a B width in Bloch though and I had to get a C width in these shoes. My friend also had the same issue. I think they run a little narrow.

    My daughter is an advanced dancer and is in the studio approximately 8-10 hours a week for classes and another 10 for rehearsals when they are in the middle of a season. Granted about half of that time is probably on pointe, but she goes through these shoes which she loves and states look and feel amazing in about 2 months.

    Durability: 4 star rating

    My girls really love this ballet shoe, and I love it because I don't have to sew the straps in! We have tried leather ballet shoes as well but these provide the most comfort for sure. They both wear a size 8 1/2 street shoe and the size 6 in these fit well! So I would say go at least 2 1/2 sizes down from the street shoe size. My one daughter has an average to narrow foot and she goes with the C width and my other has a somewhat wide flat foot and she likes the D width. If they dance 2-3 days a week they will wear out pretty quick but we can usually make them last one full season. Overall great shoe especially for the value!

    I wear a size 9-91/2 show and I followed the sizing guide and got a 7 1/2 and they fit perfectly. Well, as perfect as flats can fit for me. I have a long big toe and my other toes are dramatically shorter, but these shoes are my favorite. It helps me that there isn't a drawstring because having the clump of the knot of a drawstring pressed against my foot eventually bruises.

    I bought this in a size 6.5C for my size 8 wide feet. It is very comfortable, and very durable. My first pair has still not broken after a year of wear. I recently bought another pair because they are just so comfortable, and they show off your arch well. The only reason I did not give this product 5 stars is that it is a little baggy in the heel and toes, so some people might not prefer the style, though I don't mind. Great ballet shoe overall!

    Not super attractive or durable, but very do their job

    Comfort: 5 star rating

    Durability: 3 star rating

    These shoes are not very attractive or elegant, but I think they do their job. The large pad for the ball of your foot is pretty cushiony and comfy (especially at first) However, I find the material at the point of my foot very baggy, and sometimes hides my shapes. The material under the arch is very nice, and hugs the shape of my arch very well. I have to get a new pair every year, which isn't too bad, but if it isn't elegant and it has low-durability, then I think I probably wont buy these again. (I've had two pairs)

    This is my first try at canvas shoes and I love them! These are so light weight and comfortable and I loved not having to sew in the elastics myself. I also enjoy the stretch of these so that there is no need for a draw string. I read other reviews of this shoe that mentioned they didn't get the shape they wanted with this shoe because they felt it was too bulky. It might be that I got the perfect fit, but I'm not having these issues at all.

    Nice quality, but not the right fit.

    by: masj - 11/03/2014

    Durability: 4 star rating

    This shoe has many pros: no-sew elastics and comfortable, however there are cons to counter these two benefits. While the shoe itself is good quality, it is not as flattering as other canvas ballet shoes I have tried. The material seems to be very baggy at the heel and in the toe area. There is no adjustable drawstring, which I believe contributes to the bagginess at the heel end of the shoe. I am a size 9 in women's street shoes and ordered a 7B. Length-wise the shoe fits just fine.

    by: TexasMom - 09/26/2014

    These are comfy and affordable. They fit exactly according to the size chart by which I ordered. The only thing that would make them better is if I could wear them without tights. (They are a little sticky on the inside by the seam.) But since most dance schools require tights anyway, that is really not a big deal. And I love the fact that there is no drawstring. I can never get those to stay tied!

    Easy shoe for beginners, not for advanced

    by: Svetlana - 08/30/2014

    Comfort: 2 star rating

    Durability: 3 star rating

    The overall feel is rather "baggy", a lot of material that is not exactly thick but loose. Performance wise, the large padding at the ball of the foot does make for better balance for beginners, but as the working foot the padd tends to shift forward and make the toes appear less pointed. It does not form the sleek/advanced foot very well, there is just a lot of loose material and does not show off the shape of the foot. The shape of the leading edge forms okay for both tapered and squared off toes. Though it does seem to favor tapered forefoot with the 2nd toe longer. For beginners this may be a good slipper, the elastics are already sewn and no drawstrings. The elastic that replaces the drawstring is not overly burdonsome but it rides rather low.

    Everyone in my studio has switched to this shoe. It is so much better than what we used previously which was sansha split sole canvas. Thlis one is like wearing a sock with split soles. They hug and conform to the foot with no wrinkles.It shows off your beautiful arch and pointe. It will make bad arches and pointes look better. They are flattering to ANY foot. IF they look ugly then they are probably too big even though you think they fit. They need to be SNUG with no heel room. I don't mean tightly squeezing. I mean snug like a sock. Order at least 2.5 sizes smaller than street. Even that is too big for me. I wear 3 sizes smaller. I am an 8 so I wear a 5 nicely.

    I have worn these shoes for two years and they have been very durable, pretty and long lasting. Comfortable as they are, they don't mold to your foot and that makes them not very flattering. There is a huge bump on my heel and the toes are baggy. I will probably try a different pair of shoes next time. If they fit you they are a good buy but they're just not for me.

    uncomfortable and unattractive

    by: Diane568 - 03/22/2014

    Comfort: 1 star rating

    Durability: 4 star rating

    First of all the product looks nothing like the picture. It covers an oddly large amount of the front of the foot and moreover is saggy at the toes and heel but too tight on the elastic (and I have thin feet). It does not highlight the arch well at all and feels as if there is something in the shoe that you're stepping on at all times, very distracting. I would not recommend this product.

    Love this shoe! Their really comfy and make your feet look so pretty! They're not baggy around my feet like other shoes I've worn in the past, and the elastics come sewn on!! I mean, what more could you ask for? Also, no strings to worry about!

    Love these!

    by: GradStudent - 02/09/2014

    If you have found other types of ballet slippers uncomfortable, I recommend giving these a try. I love the flat elastic (which seems to put less pressure on the foot than a drawstring), the wider metatarsal pad (which means there are no seams under your foot when you are on releve), and the roomy toe box. As for size, I wear an 8.5 M in most street shoes, and the 6.0 C in these is just right. Everyone's feet are a little different, but these are perfect for me.

    My favorite ballet shoes by far, hugging my arch nicely and without the annoying drawstrings on other ballet shoes. Mine were tight the first couple classes, but once the broke in, I fell in love. They are a tad big in the toe, but with feet being slightly different sizes, what can you really do? ;) I had my first pair for about 3-4 months before they ripped in the arch.

    amazing fit with the right size!

    by: tspetit - 10/18/2013

    Durability: 4 star rating

    I have never had ballet shoes that formed perfectly to my feet before, I have very narrow small feet with a bit of a curve (naturally like this) and I've never felt so comfortable in flat shoes before. The canvas that usually require being tied and worn under the foot (or alternatively sewn to the sides) have an uncomfortable padding at each of the split soles of the shoe. I just ordered these in a flesh color (since reviews said only really tan people order that color) and I'm of filipina descent so my skin is naturally tan but they did not work, the color did not compliment my skin tone so I returned them and just reordered these in pink. I'm a size 5.5 in my street shoes and ordered a 3.5B in these and they fit wonderfully! Unlike many other shoes, these really show off the arch in your feet (and I don't have a super arched foot either) so get these already! When I have the money I'll probably just order a couple pairs so I won't have to worry about getting more pairs in the future. I dance and teach 4-5 days a week and it's almost like dancing barefoot or in very thin socks - its that lightweight! The elastics come pre-sewn so that's another pro to these. Can't really think of any cons to these specific shoes.

    I love these shoes! The fit is fantastic! No more crunched toes. I finally found a shoe that gives my toes room to point and flex uninhibited while still maintaining a snug, secure fit around the foot. While it is true that the elastic edges of the shoe are slightly less attractive than traditional drawstring slippers, the comfort and fit are most definitely worth it. If you want comfy shoes, look no further. I would say they run slightly small but I also like my shoes with a tiny bit of toe room. I wear a street size 71/2 and ordered a 51/2 and they fit perfectly. Tight around the foot but still give my toes room without crunching.

    I love these slippers mostly because I dont have to sew them.. And I don't need to deal with the draw strings... They are very comfortable and I love the way my feet look when I pointe in them.. I recommended the slippers to my dance friends and they loved them... But if you dance a lot though you will start to see holes form quickly.. and if thats happening I recommend getting another pair before a recital or whatever.. because I didn't do that and they were not too pretty... I'm a size 7.5-8 and I got a size 5.5C because I like a little room.. But if I want it to be snug I would get a B. ~Sedonia

    Comfortable and stylish shoes.

    by: Hypatiah - 08/27/2013

    Comfort: 5 star rating

    I'm a belly dancer instructor, and these shoes are really comfortable, I teach 3 hours on a row 4 times a day and I didn't have to brake them. They run large, I'm normally wear 5.5 street shoes, and these are only 4, regular wide (C). You can get them for narrow, normal and wide feet. I read some reviews and some people are complaining that they don't look stylish, and they do if you get your right size, I can see how they might look if you get a larger size. It wasn't my case. They recommend to get 2 sizes down, but I wasn't that comfortable, so instead of getting 3.5 I got 4 and they work fine for me, maybe next time I might try 3.5 but I'm not sure.

    I was first tempted to purchase these shoes after suffering a tear in my achilles. I am so glad I did. These are without a doubt, the most comfortable pair of ballet shoes I have ever owned. With the absense of the draw string it puts no extra pressure on your achilles and gives your a foot a beautifully clean finish. I have sinced re-ordered these numerous times and also purchased them for my 7 year old daughter.

    Bloch Pro Elastic

    by: dancerforall - 06/28/2013

    Comfort: 5 star rating

    Durability: 5 star rating

    Great Ballet Slipper! I decided to try these because a lot of our company dancers have started using them. I love the elastic border instead of the drawstring AND I LOVE the fact that the straps are ALREADY sewn on! Talk about "Sew" easy! Very comfortable and molds to the foot's shape very well, even though the canvas is the non-stretch type. This surprised me because I'd been using the stretch canvas Merlet Scarlett's for years to get the smooth fit, but then they changed their vamp height and drawstring casing and I had to go on a search for a new shoe. I ordered 4 different brands - 3 stretch canvas types and these, and these won hands down. One tip definitely order smaller than you think. I wear 6.5M street shoes and based on the Bloch instructions I ordered 2 sizes down and got a 4.5M, but these were still an inch too big at the heel. I returned these and got 3 more pairs in smaller sizes to see what fit. The size 3.5M fits perfectly. Try this shoe, I think you'll love it!

    I have been using these shoes for the last couple years. I've gone through quite a few pairs of them and keep coming back to order the exact same shoe every time. Since I teach and dance 5 days a week, I usually run through a pair of shoes quickly. These are not much better than any other canvas shoe on durability, but they are definitely the most comfortable ballet shoes I've ever worn. Even some of my adult and teen students have switched over to them. I usually wear a 4.5B in bloch, but a size 5C in this shoe gives me a little bit more room and seems like a better fit.

    The first thing I love about this shoe is that there is no draw string around the crown of the foot. It's all elastic which gives a great deal of comfort. You don't nee to tuck the access string under the front of the shoe which can sometimes feel uncomfortable on the knuckle of the toes. I wear a 7-7.5 street shoe and I ordered a size 5...I think I could've even gone up to a 5.5 on these. This shoe almost just feels like you have a foodie sock on. It hugs nicely, doesn't move around, and is very light. I Love this shoe.

    Lightweight and comfortable!

    Durability: 4 star rating

    These shoes are amazingly comfortable. I've only worn them once so far, but already know these are going to be one of my favorites for comfort. The shoes feel almost like having nothing at all on my feet- the wide and flat forefoot outersole is very easy to turn on, and the shoe conforms pretty well to my foot, even though I have tapered Greek toes. The heel was bunching on me, but I washed the slippers, and let them almost dry in the drier- and wore them the rest of the day inside- the bagginess in the heel is diminished. The elastic on the Achilles is much more comfortable than shoes with a drawstring, although the elastic is a bit tight- but not annoyingly so. I do not think these are pretty shoes- they look like house slippers on me- but I will wear them for the comfort factor. The pink color isn't very light and doesn't match any of my ballet pink tights at all- the color is more a beige pink. I'm not sure how durable they will be- the weave structure doesn't look as tight as some of my other canvas shoes (like the Grisko Ultimate canvas- my favorite shoe- or the Mirella Balloon canvas), but for the price, I don't mind if they wear out quickly. Finally, for size comparison, I normally wear a size 6 medium in dress shoes, and the 4B fits me well. Overall a good shoe, and would recommend!

    My favorite flat ballet shoes

    by: TiffanyM - 03/31/2013

    Comfort: 4 star rating

    Durability: 5 star rating

    Over the years, I have tried multiple different ballet shoes and brands. I got so frustrated with my string elastic that I would have to tie that I pulled it completely out during a Christmas show I was performing at! Oops! I went searching for a good pair of shoes and got exactly what I wanted in these. These shoes compliment my arch very nicely (I have very high arches) and are very comfort able to dance in. I prefer them over jazz shoes and FootUndeez in both Lyrical and Jazz class. The only problem I have had is when I first broke them in, the elastic was tight on my heel and where the elastic that crosses over my foot meets the shoe was a little bulgy at first. After they broke in, though, they were fine. I would also have trouble with the lining coming apart in other shoes and, so far, that hasn't happened. I wear a 7 street shoe and ordered a 5.5 B. There's a tiny bit of room above my toes, but nothing too dramatic. Overall, these are great shoes and I highly recommend them.

    Worst shoes I've ever worn, personally. I wanted to like them since I love canvas shoes and I hate sewing and drawstrings and thought these should be perfect. The shoes have an odd fit, and will not stay in place. They bunch and shift and twist constantly. Trying to turn in them is a joke. I wear a lot of Bloch styles and usually they fit me well, but this style and my feet are just not compatible. I have never hated a pair of shoes more than these.

    I hate sewing elastics so I love that these come pre-sewn. I wear a street size 10B and the 8C fits me like a glove. I found that the B was too snug around the elastic so if that's your concern, go with width C. SO comfortable! Fit beautifully on my arch. I've worn these for 2-6 classes per week for a year and I finally had a blowout in each one at my big toe (yes, I alternated R and L.) But that's a long time for a canvas shoe to last! I would just pop them in the washer every once in awhile and air dry. I like the flesh tone as I'm not a pink tights/pink shoe kind of girl. Love these!!!

    This shoe was alright. The flat elastic was nice during splits because there wasn't a knot to dig in like traditional drawstring slippers. However the elastic was too tight, it dug into my heel. I have more flat feet and these shoes gave my friends and I all such bad cramps during temps-leves. The pre-sewn elastics were also too tight. They help up decently until I performed on stage in them.

    I've written a review for these already but it was right when I got them. Now, I've been using them since about January. They did break in and feel pretty good most of the time. Sometimes my feet are a little sore after wearing them but it's not a big deal. It's worth it because they're just so much better than regular ballet shoes with a drawstring. For the price, I'll definitely order more in the future. Maybe I'll go wider next time though because they are a little tight around my arch. They are very durable though. I've worn them for performances outside a few times even and there are a couple holes now but only through the outer layer so they are still very usable. I wear them in dance all the time, not just ballet. I prefer them over jazz shoes. They have a good amount of grip, and are not slippery like leather shoes.

    I wear a size 7/7.5 street shoe, have wide feet and ordered the shoes in a 5B. These have been the worst ballet shoes I've ever owned. I saw a girl at the summer intensive I attended this past summer with these shoes on and I had fallen in love with how they looked so I thought I would give them a try. I love the fact that the shoes have elastic across the top rather than having to adjust the string, but even after using the shoes for 2 weeks, they are still uncomfortable. The elastic binding squeezes my feet and I usually fit a size 5 in Bloch ballet shoes and the length of these shoes are rather longer than expected so the fabric at the heel sticks out making my heels look really boxed. The elastic straps are tight as well even after re-sewing them. I'm really disappointed with the shoe, not only are they uncomfortable overall, they don't look great on my feet. I'm not sure if its just because I have wide feet, but I do not recommend getting these if you do.

    Comfort: 3 star rating

    Fit: True to size

    These slippers are alright, I ordered a couple sizes to try and originally was very happy with the size I chose that I felt fit the best. They didn't do much to accentuate my high arch and the fabric at the front of the shoe bags when I point, as do my other pair of Bloch slippers. They have pretty much no support and the color is a little strange (sort of a light strawberry pink vs. muted pastel pink). All in all, these slippers would be alright for a casual dancer but a serious dancer would most likely want a better fitting, more attractive, and more supportive shoe.

    good technique shoe

    by: kocicka - 08/17/2012

    Comfort: 4 star rating

    Durability: 4 star rating

    Fit: True to size

    I wear between 7.5 and 8 street shoe, medium width, and usually 5 or 5.5 in technique slippers. I took these Bloch ProElastic slippers in 5 B. One thing I hate about canvas technique slippers is that the drawstrings are so difficult to get right, making the slippers bag on the sides of the foot. Since the binding on this slipper is entirely elastic, it molds beautifully to the foot. For me, although they felt pretty tight during the first class, after about five or six hours of use the slippers relaxed and were broken in just right, and no side gaps. They are slightly long especially on my four smaller toes, but I have definitely tapered/Egyptian toes. I think these slippers are generally quite flattering, my arch looks good and the colour matched the different shades of my tights well enough (though the Prima Soft in ballet pink was probably the closest match). The pre-sewn crossed arch elastics are very convenient, though it is a slight problem if you prefer one elastic across your arch. If you are looking for a new technique slipper, I think this is as good a choice as any, especially if saggy-baggy canvas slippers are making you crazy :)

    I'm always looking for a good pair of canvas ballet shoes, so I bought these about a year ago after seeing the reviews. These shoes are very comfortable and well-sewn. They are also flatter your arches very nicely. I have average-sized feet, but when I got them the criss-cross elastic was a little snug for my taste. You may have to resew the elastic, but other than that this is a great shoe! They are very durable; I wore them often and outgrew them before they wore out. Overall fantastic quality and good price.

That's good but also bad because I have to reorder the smaller ones. I usually wear 6-7 street size so I orders 3 1/2D

    Beautiful Arch - Flattering!

    Durability: 4 star rating

    Fit: True to size

    I've been wearing these for 3 years now and I love. Yes, they are canvas so durability isn't going to be incredible, but they fit my feet beautifully and hug the arch better than any other shoe I've ever tried. I haven't had any problems with the heel slipping. I've washed mine a few times and they still hold up and fit well. I've gone through 4 pairs in 3 years dancing just about every day, but I do switch the feet and pairs out occasionally. They aren't for everyone though. My friends with flatter feet do not find them as comfortable. I normally wear a 9 in street shoes and wear a 6.5 C in these.

    ABSOLUTE BEST shoes ever!

    I've tried MANY brands of ballet flats, these are by far the best. I LOVE the elastic surround, it cups your foot without being constrictive and flatters your arch. I wear a size 8.5 to 9 and in these shoes I wear a 6.5 M... I have a narrow-ish foot, so the medium is fine, and plenty of room. I love that they come pre-sewn, so you just put them on and go... I wore these shoes for a year, and am just now needing to replace them, due to holes in the toes. I actually switched the feet (so the holes were now on the side) and wore them even longer. BEST shoes ever!

    I love these ballet shoes! But they run really big. I wear a size 6-7 and I got a size 3 1/2. I got them last summer and they now have a hole in them. I like how they come sewn so I don't have to sew them myself!

    I wear shoes sized 9, 10, and 11, (depending on the brand) though I usually consider myself to have size 10.5 feet. I wear narrow (A) shoes when I can get them, but usually survive in the normal width. I got size 8 in these ballet shoes, and if I had it to do over, I probably would have gotten 7.5. The 8s fit fine, they are just not snug in the front. That said, they are comfy and quick to put on and take off. I've been wearing them for about a month and love them.

    I haven't decided if these fit right yet. They were a little tight in some areas at first but tights keep the straps from digging in. I wore them around the house for a while to get a better feel for them and after a while my feet felt sore, as if I had been running or something. I'm hoping they just need to be broken in a little because I love these shoes. If you have pretty wide feet, maybe you should order a D because I could probably use a little more room.

    So far this is a good shoe. I started taking belly dance class for exercise and needed something to be able to do turns as my feet stick to the floor. I took the advice of one poster. I wear a 9 wide most times in shoes. I ordered a 7C and it fits fine. Just have to get used to the heel, again as Iím not used to "shoes" like this. So far so good, but I only wear them once a week and have had them a month. Good price also.

    I could not stand dancing without them

    I have continually come back and bought this show for years now. Its suggests to buy a couple sizes smaller, definitely do, but even if you get a 1/2 too big its no problem, just keep in mind if you get them right or tight they'll stretch out. These shoes also last a long time. I love the price and the few times when I couldn't order these online and had to go to the store I could not stand dancing without them and had to order them the next day.

    I love this shoe! I wear a size 7.5 street shoe and ordered the 4.5 (same size I wear in my Bloch serenade pointe shoes) and they fit perfectly! I see some other people are saying the elastic is too tight, but I just got the "D" width and that gave some more room on top. They make my arch look great and are so comfortable!

    This shoe was recommended to me by a friend who thought it would look good on my feet. I have wide feet and I very much like the way it looks on them.

    The shoe cut off right where my pinky toe is! The elastic scoops way low... or my toes goes too high! I don't like them :( They look really cool though!

    I love love love these shoes! I was a little nervous about ordering them online because of sizing but they fit great. I have a size 6 1/2 foot so I ordered a 4 1/2 C. They are a tad big so a 4C would have been better but I am in love with the shoe. No annoying drawstrings and the elastic is already sewn for you.

    Definitely the best shoes I've ever had. They are super comfy and really show off your arch. The material is really flexible and doesn't squish your feet at all.

    The shoes are great! They really show off the arch and they are really easy to turn in. I bought these in August and I wear these 6 days a week to dance and teach and they are now just getting holes(it is December 1st).

    Loooovely!!! I fell in love with this slipper. I just wear them today, and everything felt so nice. They make your arch look really nice. For the price, you get a nice and beautiful shoe. Go with 2 sizes smaller, unless you have very narrow feet. I'm a 7, and I'm wearing a 5C in these Blochs.

    So comfy!

    This slipper is, hands down the most comfortable ballet slipper I have ever worn! First off, unlike in the picture, the elastic is the same color as the canvas, and the color is much lighter - your standard ballet pink. The fabric is very soft and "fluffy" and does pick up some lint/debris, but I don't think it gets dirtier faster than any other slipper I have. The elastic keeps the shoe molded to your foot and now I never feel like my shoe could twist off. No more digging in my heel! The arch insert hugs the arch very nicely. The padding is perfectly placed just where you need it. Only downside is that the bottom sole is suede, so turns take some getting used to if you've never had that before. But the suede does wear down and the problem goes away after a few classes. And the price! For the amount of money, you have to give these a try.

    These shoes run slightly big; I usually wear a 7D in Bloch shoes, and I wear a 6C in these. I really like the elastic that replaces the drawstring. It helps flatter the arch and "hug" the shoe to the foot. The sides of the shoe are cut slightly lower than I would like, and the canvas is sort of a little bit "fluffy" of felt-ish so floor dirt sticks to these shoes really badly. All around, they are a comfortable shoe.
