We ordered a size 6.5 for a girl's wide foot that typically takes a size 8 street shoe. They fit for the entire dance year, though it was too snug at the recital to fit a pair of thin socks. Reordering now, in one size larger, hoping they will fit the entire year again.
So I got these for myself, and I discovered that this is men’s size. My foot is normally a little wide but I got a normal and it fit nicely, but lengthwise it was a little small. I recommend to go a half size bigger than what they recommend, and do a size M unless you are a man with huge feet... hope this helped
I can't speak to durability yet, but these fit my son perfectly and were a great alternative to the more expensive shoes for a beginner. I ordered his regular shoe size and it fits perfectly. 8.5 mens in street shoes equates to 8.5 mens in this shoe.
I ordered about a dozen pair of these for our upcoming musical production of Mary Poppins and luckily I was able to swap around and size down then then return and exchange for most because they all ran at least a size larger than street size for men.
I was so excited when these arrived at my door only o be disappointed that they were too big. I normally wear a 9.5 or 10, depending on what it is. I read the other review to order down, which is what I did but only by a little. Definitely order down but other than that the shoes sound nice and look very sturdy.
If you are a woman ordering this shoe, the size guideline is off. I ordered a size 7W for a student who wears a size 8 and has a very wide foot, however the 7W was way too big and instead fit another student of mine who wears a size 10. This is men's sizing and although I did not order for a man this time, I think, based on my experience as a long time dance teacher ordering dance shoes that they would be a a size too big even on men. Unfortunately, they do not carry them smaller than size 6, at least at this time.
