I have now had to send this product back twice and pay shipping four ways. I suggest buying from a site that offers free shipping because the sizing is so off. My daughter wears a childs size 1. So I ordered that first. WAY SMALL, so then I returned and ordered a 2.5. STILL TOO SMALL! I guess we need to go somewhere she can actually try them on.
Comfortable, well-made shoe.
I bought a size 1 for my daughter, who is generally a size 10 or 11. The shoe fits with a bit of room to grow. It's certainly not huge. The shoe cups her heel so it doesn't slip out. I would agree with the comments to go up two sizes.
My 3 year old daughter needs hip hop shoes she wear size 9. Any ideas?
This particular style, along with style DS03C, run small. The recommended fitting suggests ordering 1.5 to 2.5 sizes larger than the child's street shoe. The size 12.0 in either style would probably work, even though the child would have a bit of room to grow into the shoe. - DDS Customer Service (01/31/2014)
My three year old wears size 9 wide tap, and size 9 for ballet and street shoes, I need to order black hip hop sneakers for her hip hop recital. Not quite understanding the sizing of the kids shoes. The ones she is suppose to buy run too big at her dance shop the smallest being 10.5 in another brand. Can someone help me with preschool aged sizing or are these like older kids sizing?
Our sizing is based on the child's street shoe size. Most of our sneakers do not come in sizes as small as 9 or 9.5
Please contact Customer Service for assistance in sizing your child for a sneaker. - DDS Customer Service (01/28/2014)
The sneakers run super small. My daughter is size 10/11 normally, but I bought her a size 1. It's a little large, but not unreasonably so.
Have you tried on the 10.5? That might be just right. - Mom2lulu (05/02/2014)
