This 1.5" character shoe is made of a genuine imitation leather upper with a scored leather sole. Other features include a soft breathable lining, an attached ankle strap with a pin buckle, and an improved heel lift attachment. Excellent for tap or stage!
Don't be fooled by the sizing. They do not match street sizes at all. I had to return the shoe immediately as it was half the size of my daughter's foot. Am hoping the replacement adult shoe will work.
I bought these for my child who needed shoes for a Character Dance class. These are well made, sturdy and pretty. The heels are about 1 1/2 inches high. They run about 2 1/2 sizes small. My child wears a 13.5 in regular shoes. In the "Baby Louis" shoe the shoe that fit was the size 3. Aside from the buckle of the shoe having no pin, but a "grip style" buckle instead, which is difficult for small fingers to get on and off or adjust quickly, the rest of the shoe is very nice!
The suggested sizing is to order same as street. Well I actually ordered 1 size larger than street and the length of the shoe was clearly 2 sizes TOO SMALL still! So I would order 3 sizes larger than street shoe.
ALso they are very very narrow and would be uncomfortable for a medium foot and impossible for a wide foot.
