The size chart was right on for us with this shoe. My son wears size 8 street shoe, and he orders 11M. He has these for everything! The Flesh color is his favorite, because he likes it to blend in with his foot. However, he also has black and white, because sometimes those are required for class or performance. Durability is as expected for a canvas ballet shoe. We buy several pairs per year.
I needed a "flesh" colored shoe for a part I was understudying. Based on the pictures of the shoe labeled "flesh" I thought that even if it wouldn't quite be my skin tone, it would be pretty close. When the shoes arrived they were a strange deep orange color. My friends all agreed that they couldn't think of anyone who had a skin tone that would match these shoes. Also when I put them on (because of the color they could not be used though) they ran pretty small. I think besides these two main issues of color and size, they could have possibly been a great durable shoe.
I like these shoes for my students because the elastics come sewn, but DDS is unable to keep common sizes in stock. I find the shoe comfortable with enough padding in the sole for cushioning on jumps. I typically wear a size 7.5 to 8 wide street shoe and wear a size 11N in these Silhouettes.
Great shoes! Good quality, very comfortable! Not sure how long they last, hence my 3-star durability rating, because I haven't worn them for class yet. But they fit perfectly. Highly recommend.
Please note that the buyer must sew own elastics, shoes do not come sewn. Thank you!
