Fit: Runs very small
These shoes are super cute HOWEVER they run about 2-3 sizes TOO SMALL! If you are ordering these absolutely order 2 sizes bigger than your child needs. Our whole Hip Hop class had to either sell or exchange the shoes that they ordered because none of our daughters could even get their feet in the shoe.
ORDER 2 SIZES BIGGER!!!
The website says that the child sizes and adult sizes are same as street size. THIS IS NOT TRUE. The child sizes are 2 sizes too small. My daughter is a 4 street (child) and ordered a 4 child. It was like a child 2 and thus we then ordered an adult 7, thinking that if the adult 6 was same as child 4 (per the Discount Dance conversion chart) then she needed a 7 adult. Well, the 7 adult were huge, so we had to overnite a 6 adult. It fit. Called the company 9-19-15 advising they update their website.to indicate child sizing 2 sizes small.
Many in our dance company had to scramble to re-order and/trade these shoes with one another, as the girls's sizes run extremely small. The 4 was actually visibly smaller than my daughter's 2.5 street shoes (both New Balance and Converse). She ended up wearing a 5.5! If you use these, be prepared for lots of back and forth to find the right fit.
