    Fit: Runs very small

    The shoes looked nice but I bought a half size bigger than I take because the reviews said they run small. Because of all the shipping costs coming and going I will not order from this company again.

    Fit: Runs small

    I have not had much experience with character shoes, but I needed them for Madrigals. My teacher ordered some cheap, uncomfortable, stiff shoes that were hurting my feet to the point that my feet would go numb after awhile. When I was told we would be dancing a bunch of swing dance numbers in our character shoes, I immediately decided to buy a better quality character shoe. These shoes are amazing! In contrast to the character shoes I was bought, these shoes are soft, comfortable, and they have enough flexibility in the material to comfortably move my foot without the shoe being floppy. I only ordered a 9, which is half a shoe size bigger than what I normally wear, but I ordered them wide because I was having more issues with my toes being squished.

    Comfortable shoe that ran true to size

    by: commtheatregeek - 11/13/2015

    Comfort: 5 star rating

    Durability: 4 star rating

    I purchased these shoes for a show I was in. I made the mistake of ordering on the large size (some reviews said they ran small) but found out they are true to size same as street shoes. Unfortunately they dont have return shipping and that was costly. Otherwise I am a person with sensitive feet and found them to be comfortable once I got the right size. I would definitely recommend them.

    Character Shooes

    by: PrincessesMom - 10/26/2015

    Comfort: 1 star rating

    Durability: 1 star rating

    We were told this item runs true to regular shoe size. Yet what arrived that was labeled as her regular size was clearly 2 sizes too big. Since she needed them for rehearsals immediately there was no time to reorder. Returning these and have had to find a store that we could drive to and try them on. The cost is that I have to pay shipping both ways for an item that is not satisfactory.

    Great shoes but..

    by: LaCarlotta - 12/25/2014

    Durability: 4 star rating

    I am National Honor Thespian so I wear character shoes pretty often. These are some of the most comfortable I've ever worn. They seem nice, but I have to send them back for a smaller size. I normally wear a 7, but most of the reviews said they ran a half size small, so I ordered a 7.5 and they're to big. Other than that I really like these shoes and will be recommending to my Thespian Troupe!

    Durability: 4 star rating

    Excelente precio para la calidad de la cual están hechos. Empezamos usando este calzado para las clases y prácticas ... pero ahora , lo estamos utilizando hasta para las presentaciones. Lo único que a las estudiantes no les gusta mucho es la hebilla del zapato, pero funciona. Excellent price for the quality they are made. We start using this shoes for classes and practices... but now, we are using them for performance too. The only thing girls don't like so much is the shoe buckle, but it works

    marshmallow shoe

    by: novice - 04/29/2014

    Comfort: 4 star rating

    Durability: 3 star rating

    This shoe looked very puffy and big on my foot, like a marshmallow. Was a tag big and looked awful. Immediately returned and kept the other pair of a similar style that were much slimmer and better looking on.

    The buckle is a slip buckle. My daughter accidentally turned the strap before putting it in and it got stuck. But even the right way it is hard to adjust.

    Durability: 4 star rating

    The shoes are very comfortable but what I really liked was the service. Somehow the size on the box didn't match up with the shoes inside so they didn't fit. When I called they were so polite and I got my replacement shoes just a few days later. Fantastic service! They chose to donate the first shoes so I got them to a local community theater.

    Cheap

    by: Foxxy - 12/12/2013

    Comfort: 5 star rating

    Durability: 1 star rating

    Pros: These look great. They feel comfortable. They were inexpensive compared to similar character shoes. Cons: The buckle broke within about 2 of 3 weeks of wear. These are obviously cheaply made. I'm now keeping my shoes on with a twisty tie.

    Adequate character shoe

    by: Worshipdancer - 11/13/2013

    Comfort: 4 star rating

    Durability: 5 star rating

    We bought my child's true size yet in a wide width, because her foot is on the wide side though she wears normal width shoes. I figured from the reviews that I'd rather her have room than have squished toes. She says it's rubbing a little on the side but that's to be expected. I'd buy this good value again.

    Comfortable dance shoes

    by: RuthC5555 - 11/11/2013

    Comfort: 5 star rating

    I have actually only worn these shoes one evening at this point - two classes - cha cha and Argentine tango. They were quite comfortable and I think they'll be great for all my ballroom/Latin classes. I can't say anything about durability since I've just started wearing them!

    Sturdy, pretty shoe

    by: TucsonMom - 10/12/2013

    Comfort: 4 star rating

    I bought these shoes for my daughter, who is taking a dance class as well as theater in high school. She will be able to wear these pretty, comfortable, and sturdy shoes in her classes, as well as wear them out during a dressy occasion. They're well made and have no rough edges anywhere inside the shoe. I am definitely impressed and would recommend them.

    I have ordered these shoes twice for my daughter, and she still does not have a pair that fit. Her regular shoe size is a 6, and other reviewers said to order a size up. I ordered a size 6.5 and they were huge. I then ordered a size 6, and they are still too large. Now I have two pair to return, and don't know what size to order. Overall, these shoes run very large.

    Sizes run large, and one other issue

    by: Nmarie - 09/01/2013

    Comfort: 2 star rating

    I am solidly a 7.5 street shoe, and ordered this shoe in a size 7. It was still about a half size too big. Besides this issue, on one of the shoes, the buckle was sewn on backwards! Not that it would have mattered much if it was sewn on correctly, because the buckles on these shoes are not like normal ones, and slip loose easily. 0/10 would not recommend.

    Good, Affordable, Stylish and Durable Shoe

    by: LinaKay04 - 05/20/2013

    Comfort: 3 star rating

    Durability: 5 star rating

    I bought these shoes because they were cheaper than the other character shoes and most of the reviews were good. I wear a size 7, but i got a size 7.5 and they fit perfectly. I also got the M and not W. My feet are not very wide, but they are also not slender, so i was a little weary about this. They fit my width perfectly though. I definitely recommend getting a wide if you consider your feet to be wide. I am using these shoes for a jazz dance and they work well. they are very slippery, but are better with rosin and after they have been worn on the bottom. they were also comfortable overall. I tried them will tights and socks, and my toes were not squished. The only part that was uncomfortable was that the shoe dug into the sides of my heels. It wasn't unbearable though, just uncomfortable. This might just be part of all character shoes, I'm not sure. Anyways, i hope this helps!

    I ordered these shoes for my theater class and all the reviews I read said try ran about a size to a size and a half small. I Haeckel a street size 8.5 so I ordered a 9.5 when they came they were about a half size big and now I wish I ordered a 9 :/ still fit okay and I'm still going to wear them but their not as small as everyone says they are.

    Shoes run very narrow

    by: Dbdzr - 06/27/2012

    I bought these shoes for my daughter who has a long, narrow foot (most shoes are too wide for her) and even she could barely squeeze into them. The length was perfect to size, however, I would estimate they're an A width and not the B (medium) stated in the description. The overall quality appeared good, however, I cannot attest to their comfort or durability as she never got the chance to wear them. If you have a very narrow foot, these may be the shoes for you.

  • Shoe Sizing Enquire

    by: Sara (03/31/2014) Age: 18 to 24

    Hi everyone, I am normally a AU size 7 ladies. The site says to go one size smaller, but i notice you say go .5 larger. I also have narrow feet. What size do you recommend? Thanks in advance

    The suggested fitting for this shoe is to order 1 size smaller than street shoe. This shoe also tends to run narrow.

  • Shoe Sizing?

    by: Anon (02/14/2013)

    I'm usually an 8.5 street shoe size. I've heard this shoe runs very very small. How many sizes up from my regular shoe size should I order this shoe!?

    The sizing for this item does state to order the same as street shoe size. If you would like a little more room for a more comfort fit, you can go .5 size larger.
    - DDS Customer Service (02/14/2013)

    I'm a street size 8.5 and heard they run small so I ordered a 9.5 and their too big so if I were you I'd order a 9! - Dancerdancer (02/21/2013)

    I heard this also before i bought them. I wear a seven in street shoes usually, and i bought a 7.5 in these and they fit perfectly! If you have really wide feet i would recommend getting a W. My feet are in between narrow and wide and I got a M and they fit perfectly, but they are slightly narrow shoes. these shoes are comfortable, but the only thing is that they kind of dig into the side of my heels, even with tights. It isn't unbearable, just a little uncomfortable. Hope this helps! - Linakay04 (05/20/2013)

  • does this shoe have the rounder toe box or the more tapered narrower toe?

    by: Lori (01/23/2013 - St. Louis, Mo, Usa) Age: 55 to 64

    My first Capezio shoes were the t-strap character shoes and were comfortable from day one. When I replaced them with last year's version, the toe box was more tapered and pinched my toes so badly that i've never been able to keep them on for more than 5 minutes. I've now decided I will try the shorter 1.5 inch heel, but don't want to bother if this has the tapered toe box.

    The toe in this shoe is more rounded than tapered. I guess it's somewhere in between. - Tucsonmom (10/12/2013)

    These have a round toe and are very comfortable - Lacarlotta (12/25/2014)

  • Do the adult 11/2" character baby louis shoes run narrow like someone said in a review?

    by: jeanbean (09/29/2012)

    Our Theatricals Department says that they have not had any comments on the medium width of this shoe running narrow, however the T9800 Baby Louis that comes with the taps attached runs a little wider than the T3100.
    - DDS Customer Service (10/01/2012)

    width seems appropriate. The size runs small by 1/2 size. Daughters foot measured a size 5. Size 5 too small. 5.5 fits. - Haymom (06/10/2014)
