Bloch's Adult "Pro Elastic" Canvas Ballet Shoes is the ultimate choice for dancers seeking comfort, flexibility, and support. These split sole ballet flats feature pre-sewn elastic straps and wide flat elastic in place of traditional binding and drawstring closures.

The "Pro Elastic" ballet shoes feature a canvas upper with an elastic piece that replaces the binding and drawstring. This innovative design allows the elastic to contour the foot in a full range of movement, providing a secure and snug fit. Additionally, it evenly distributes tension around the foot, relieving pressure on the Achilles tendon and ensuring maximum comfort during long hours of practice or performance. The split sole construction enhances flexibility and articulation, enabling dancers to move with ease and precision.

Whether you're practicing in the studio or performing on stage, Bloch "Pro Elastic" Canvas Ballet Slippers offer the perfect combination of style and functionality.

    STRANGE FIT 😕

    The cross pieces of the elastic were way too tight! I could barely get my foot into the shoe. And was not comfortable because of it. If there was a way yo adjust it I would have made them work. Realized that I’m a stretch canvas lover.

    LIKE THESE SHOES

    This is the second time I have ordered these ballet slippers. I only teach twice a week for a few hours so I can not speak on long term durability but they lasted most of the year before the inevitable big toe blow out. They are comfortable and I like the way they fit my foot for a canvas shoe.

    HUGE AND BUNCHY

    I really wanted to love these shoes, but I don’t think they’re for me. I wear a street 5.5, so I ordered a size 3 in these shoes, and they seemed to fit okay, but there was unnecessary heel baggage and after the first use I felt like the toes were bunchy too. Maybe I just needed to get a size smaller. I also feel like they don’t flatter my arch at all, and I have pretty nice feet, so...I’m pretty disappointed with this shoe.

    I followed the advice of the other reviews. It’s a tad bulky at the heel, but that’s OK because if I got it a half size smaller it would choke my feet I think. but it still looks nice.

    SIZE VERY OFFSET FROM SYNCHRONY

    The feeling is similar to Synchrony in my opinion, but the sizing is extremely different... I wear Synchrony 3C and I love those shoes, but I feel like I should wear size 2 for pro-elastic. It's too big.

    SIZING OFF

    Before ordered called in to double check on the sizing. My daughter street shoe size is a 7 M . They told me to order size 5 but it is too small ,she could barely put her foot in. Most likely you have to order 3 size smaller than your size.

    GREAT FOR OVERALL USE

    This pair lasted me almost two years, so great! I recommend trying in store before buying though, since sizing in ballet shoes is odd (it’s not a big deal, just takes a bit to find the perfect fit) I am a size 8.5-9 in street shoes, size 7X in Bloch pointe shoes, and a 6B in these shoes. I have narrow feet, and these shoes really hug that and show off my High arches.

    MOST UNCOMFORTABLE

    I have never gotten blisters from flat shoes before these shoes. The elastic was scratchy and gave me blisters through my tights. The canvas was stiff, instead of soft like the So Danca flats. Bloch is a good brand, but I was not pleased with this product.

    I really love these canvas shoes. They fit nicely and compliment the shape of my foot. They are not the most durable, however, last a reasonable amount of time given the frequency of use. I would highly recommend them!

    These run large. I wear a 7.5 street shoe and needed size 4. I do wear my shoes very snug. They look great thru the toe but the heel seems a little squared off and sticks out a little and doesn’t conform to my heal.

    HER FAVORITE SHOE

    My daughter has been wearing this shoe since they first came out with them. According to her they form to the foot quite well and look great. Because they are made to hug the foot closely you might think that they feel too tight but they aren't. Of course they don't last as long as a leather slipper and because she dances for 4-6 hours, 6 days a week and about a third of those hours are in slippers versus point shoes. She goes through about a pair every two months. So I couldn't quite give them a excellent rating for durability but they are very good.

    I wear a street size 8 I ordered these in a 6 B these are the best ballet slippers I've worn in my ENTIRE career. So comfortable! I stopped dancing for about two years so now I'm trying to develop the callouses on the balls of my feet. I can really feel the floor in these shoes they honestly feel like wearing nothing and they create beautiful looking lines in my feet. Seriously I'm about to order 3 more pairs of these... just to have

    I used to love these shoe and have worn this type for years. They fit well, looked good, and lasted a long time. But somehow things have changed. The last pair I got started to tear on the bottom of my foot within just a few weeks of use. Luckily it didn't interfere with my dancing, and I thought I must have just gotten a bad pair. So i reordered them, but this time the heel has so much extra fabric it looks utterly ridiculous!! I have tried getting a smaller size, but it looks just the same. What happened? I am so disappointed. Will return these an shop for a different brand.

    I love Bloch and have worn their ballet slippers for teaching for many years. Although this shoe is convenient and comfortable, it continues to fall apart within weeks. All my pairs have several tears vertically from the elastic that replaced the drawstring.

    This has been my "go to" shoe for a couple of years. I love the fit, look, comfort, pre-sewn elastics but......I have noticed a substantial decline in workmanship quality. The shoes split on the underside arch seam AND across the top of the foot vertically after only 2 weeks use. Usually the toe gives out after reasonable wear, so this is all a change. What gives? I see others have noted the same issue. Discount Dance ought to address this directly with Bloch.

    Hello! Thank you for sharing your experience with these shoes. We will address the issue with the manufacturer and make them aware of this incident. One of our Customer Service representatives will contact you to rectify the situation.

    After going through about four different pairs of slippers of various styles I at last came to this one. The convenience of not needing a drawstring or having to sew on the elastics alone should be enough to make you want to try these. In my case it was the best fit i have thus far experienced. They conform very snugly to the arch which is helpful for those of us who have trouble making an obvious curve when pointing, and the elastics around the edge prevent shifting. I still had to take in some excess fabric in the toe (since most shoes are not made with an egyptian foot in mind) but other than that perfect fit. For reference i have short, wide, deeply tapered "egyptian" style feet.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    My daughter wears a size 5. The 5 was too big so we sent them back and ordered a 4. Then the 4 was still too big. Now I don't know if I should order a 3 or 3.5.

    These shoes are great! They are super comfortable, fit well, and make your feet look amazing, almost as if you were bare foot. They were down at the normal speed of most canvas shoes but are so worth it I definitely recommend. Will be buying again once mine wear out!!!

    SPLIT AT SEAM AFTER ONE WEEK!

    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

    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

    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!

    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!

    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

    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.

    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 really did not enjoy these pair of ballet slippers. They run fairy large on my daughters feet. I really think that you should order 2 sizes smaller to your regular street size. Overall I don't think I would recemend this to any of my friends.

    GREAT SLIPPER

    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.

    LOOKS GREAT BUT DOESN'T LAST LONG

    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.

    GREAT BALLET SHOE!

    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.

    GREAT FOR WIDE FEET!

    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

    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)

    COMFORTABLE!

    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.

    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.

    GOOD SHOE, GREAT PRICE

    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

    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.

    GREAT SHOE!

    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.

    NICE SHOES

    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

    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 THESE!

    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.

    GREAT

    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!

    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.

    FINALLY HAPPY FEET!

    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.

    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.

    NICE SHOE

    I wore these shoes for a year and they worked great! they are really comfortable but they didnt make my feet look good and were a little baggy even though I have big feet. If you have narrow feet I would not recommend them but if you have wide feet they would work great! Hope this helps!

    BUY THESE SHOES

    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

    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!

    EXTREMELY COMORTABLE!

    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.

    WONDERFUL!

    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!

    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

    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.

    TOTALLY WRONG FOR MY FEET ANYWAY

    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.

    FAVORITE SLIPPERS EVER!

    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!!!

    HIGHLY IMPRESSED

    After having worked in these slippers, all my other shoes feel like boats! I am amazed at the technoliogy in the design of Pro-Elastic. Super-snug, supportive, and shapely. I especially love the pads under the soles; they are wider and rounder than any others, super comfortable! These shall be my only choice of ballet slippers in years to come. (Sizing: My street shoes size 7, I have a snug fit with pro-elastic at 4.5B)

    OBSESSED

    I bought these in flesh and they match my skin tone so well! They also make my feet look amazing with their snug, elastic fit and overall, my line is just so much nicer with these shoes. They're really comfortable too. I wear them even to jazz or contemporary practice, not just during ballet. They made my feet look so nice a friend bought a pair as well and she loves them too. Highly recommend these!

    CRAMPS

    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.
