Bought my 7 year old who wears a 3 in street shoes a size 6 in womens off of the sizing chart and they fit perfectly... I was a little worried cuz it said to add 2 from street size and then chose the women size that goes with it ... So make sure you follow the sizing chart :)

Fit: True to size
I am a 67 year old former dancer who wants to tap dance again. I have wide short feet and wear orthodontics in my regular shoes. I got these shoes in a wide and they fit like a dream. With the buckle I can adjust for the type of sock I am wearing. I particularly like them because the leather is soft and required no break in time. They feel like ballet shoes while giving off a clear sound when tapping.
I ordered these for my daughter who is 10 and she normally wears a size 3, so I went ahead and ordered a size 4 to be safe. Boy, was I wrong....WAY TOO SMALL...these shoes are not true to size! Disappointed....
I've ordered these shoes for my studio for the last 2 years and Capezio has been shearing off their screws to fit the shoes rather than designing new shoes, so that the screws are falling out and now every trick I have for keeping screws in no longer works. Supposedly they are finally looking at fixing this problem - but I'm changing over to Bloch cause they took too long!!!
These are the worst tap shoes I have ever had! I am back taking adult classes after a 10 year hiatus from dance. I am so disappointed in spending money on shoes I hate. They do not fit well (too big - the next size is too small) and I can never get good sound out.
