Bloch's modern "Foot Thong III" is virtually invisible on stage and features a silicon lined rubber support that is double stitched to the suede pad under the arch and is placed around the instep of the foot to prevent the thong from slipping forward. The foot is protected by a durable fine suede sole, which is double sided for maximum absorbance with non-slip tendency. Pull on without any need of Velcro or laces and once on, it molds to all foot types like second skin. Ideal for modern and contemporary lyrical dancing.

    I purchased these for my nine year old. When they came I was impressed! Very well constructed, soft but durable. They are snug and comfortable, she LOVES them! I have already recommended them to other dance moms!

    Difficult to put on

    Durability: 3 star rating

    My daughter is in a dance program that requires her to change costumes and dance styles very quickly. Because this product requires her to thread the "thongs" between each toe, is takes her too long to change between routines so we had to get a different type.

    Durability: 5 star rating

    I really did like like how fast they came because i was extremely eager to get them. I wanted to get the foot thong because the pads on the foot undeez came of after not even a couple months of using them. And the foot thong is just like one big soft pad so i don't have to worry about it coming off. My biggest issue is the comfort of the foot thong. It was okay for me but some may not like the fact that between each two there is a piece of fabric. so it fits like a glove. But i got use to it.

    Stays put

    by: T3rps1chore - 05/15/2013

    Durability: 4 star rating

    I have wide size 9 feet and size L is small on me. If they offered a size XL, I would try that. (Men would probably appreciate an XL as well.) However, there was enough suede to cut the toe holes a little larger, and that worked. The shoe stays put really nicely, and protects the whole ball of the foot right up to the toes. Nice design.

    These are the only "barefoot" modern shoes that have ever worked for me, most do not come close enough to the toes and you have to turn on the balls of your foot rather than up on releve. These cover where you need them for a proper turn, but the elastics will turn your toes purple.

    Great Shoe

    by: MicheleInDavis - 07/12/2012

    Comfort: 4 star rating

    Durability: 4 star rating

    Fit: True to size

    I love these shoes. They are remarkably durable. I wore mine for months, including hours and hours of rehearsals plus two weekends of shows. I think they only reason they have a hole is that the stage at our local theater is really rough so they didn't survive the last show there. I like that they conform to my feet and cover the whole surface of the ball of my foot. They are tight to start, but they loosen a little with wear. The product review said that there were 4 toe holes, but my pair seem to have holes for all 5 of my toes.

    The elastic goes in between each toe which even though I love wearing toe socks, I can't get use to these. I'm trying to give them another chance now, but still not liking them.

    Takes some breaking in, but good

    by: Jenna - 08/08/2011 - Vancouver, Bc,

    Comfort: 2 star rating

    Durability: 4 star rating

    Fit: True to size

    I wear a street size 8.5W (wide), a Bloch full-sole ballet shoe size 4.5D, and a Bloch split-sole 5B (as they stretch more). I ordered a large in these, as I read in reviews that ladies with size 8 feet were fitting the large better than the medium. When I first tried them on, they were very uncomfortable. My 2nd toe seems to always aim for the 3rd toe hole when I'm putting them on, and the divider between the 2nd and 3rd toe is the most uncomfortable. I considered trimming or removing some of the dividers, as others reviewing this shoe have, but first I wanted to see if I could stretch/soften them at all. I'm glad I did! I worked all of the elastic, stretching & twisting it, then started working on the dividers. I rolled the sides of the dividers forward & backward (pinch them so that they're folded in half, making the whole divider skinnier), and after just 20 minutes the dividers are now soft and flexible enough that they don't hurt my toes anymore. If you aren't happy with the way the dividers feel, try doing this before cutting them away! I suspect that the shoe won't stay in place as well without them. I LOVE that they are smooth enough to turn in, yet have enough grip that I'm not slipping all over the place. When I practice at home on the wood floors, I find barefoot too difficult because my feet don't slide, but my ballet shoes are dangerously slippery. These, on the other hand, are just right. Finally, a shoe I can wear to practice outside of the studio!

    I used to wear the dance paws, then I went to the kind with the mesh and the toe holes, and now I wear these. These are amazingly comfortable and excellent to turn in. I will not be switching in the near future!

    by: JulieB - 06/09/2009 - Bothell, Wa,

    Comfort: 2 star rating

    Fit: True to size

    Daughter has size 6.5 wide feet. She wears size medium Dance Paws in class but needs Bloch for recital. She has a pair of the Bloch II in a size large and they are too big. I didn't realize these weren't the same when I ordered them. When she tried to put them on today, her feet would not go in them. They are just waaay too narrow. The elastic isn't very stretchy. I even tried to help her. We could only get the big toe in. The other toes wouldn't go in and she doesn't have overly large or fat toes.

    I have medium-wide feet and wear a size 8 and chose the size Large in these shoes. They fit perfectly, are easy to turn in and protect just the right amount of my feet. These shoes are a lot less obvious than Dance Paws and the color disappears onstage. I have been wearing them for about a month now and love them!

    These are the best modern shoes I have ever worn. They are comfortable and have just the right balance of stick and slide for turns. If you have wide feet, you might want to go up a size since they fit around your foot, not lengthwise. If you're looking for a good modern shoe, buy this!

    I love these shoes! I have an 8 shoe size, so I ordered a M. They were a little tight at first, but loosen up and conform to your foot very quickly. They do not slip off or rip easily, and the suede is excellent for turns. I highly recommend them!

    Fit: True to size

    I have wide feet and these fit just fine if you get the large. I wore them intensively for more than a year and they lasted through about 5 shows within that year. They finally tore and I am buying them again. They may be a little uncomfortable within the first week, but after that they are absolutely amazing. They have perfect coverage of the entire ball of my foot, including right under the toes. Other girls in my class buy footundeez and they tear within a month. I would highly recommend buying these, they're a much better value than other modern/lyrical shoes.

    My last review was a five but after wearing it for a few more dance classes, I hate it. It was a complete waste of my money. I mean, they fall off my feet and I got a small and they're still too big. I wear an 8 1/2; I don't have narrow feet.

    These might work if you have really narrow feet and skinny toes. Order up a size though. I wear an eight in street shoes so I bought a medium, but they cut off my circulation in less than a minute! They have straps that go between each toe, so not the best option if your toes aren't really small. I wound up selling them to a dancer friend because it was going to cost more than they were worth in shipping to send them back.

    I think that these are WAY better than FootUndeez. Everyone at my studio got FootUndeez[except me] and everyone's have ripped. I got Foot thongs and they haven't ripped yet! I have had them for almost a year now and everyone else only had them for a month! Overall, Foot thongs last WAY longer than FootUndeez.

    I was required to get these shoes for one of my modern dances. One of the toe separators broke within the first 5 minutes of wearing them, and I wasn't even dancing! They are extremely hard to put on, unless you have at least five to ten minutes, these are NOT a quick change shoe. My classmates and I all had to cut some of the separators off in order to make the shoes more comfortable. But even so, these shoes are not extremely comfortable. They were fairly easy to dance in. Although, I prefer a closed toe shoe, but after all the issues, they ended up working out for us. Not something I will recommend to anyone any time soon.

    I haven't had a class in them yet, but if you have demented toes like I do, they're a bit of a pain. My toes have minds of their own and move subconsciously. So I have to pin them down in order to slip them in. They're a little tight around the toes as well. I recommend that if you have a wider foot and a size 7 - 8.5 street size, that you get size "L".

    Reading through reviews for this shoe, it seems that most of the problems people have had are related to improper fit. The thickness and width of your foot have a lot to do with sizing, in addition to your shoe size. If you are a size 8 but have a very thick foot, you may need to order a large vs. a medium to accommodate. Like any shoe, these are uncomfortable if sized too small. Of course the straps and the toes would dig in if sized incorrectly. Mine fit perfectly, don't slip, and are very comfortable. I can even wear them inside my ballet shoes for a quick change, since they do take a while to put on. Once you find the right size, these really are a great buy.

    I use these foot thongs for my modern class, and they are so comfortable. They blend nicely so it's actually easy to forget that you're wearing them. My only complaint is that the bottoms get dirty pretty fast... I really like them though, and would certainly buy another pair to continue using them.

    While these foot things feel very sturdy, they caused my toes a lot of discomfort. The toe holes were too tiny and they pinched at the base of the toes. They were very easy to turn in except for the pain they caused me. I'm switching back to the foot thong II's for comfort.
