International dance superstar Sophia Lucia and Capezio have teamed up to bring you this exclusive signature Pirouette dance shoe! Inspired by Sophia Lucia's Guinness World Record of 55 consecutive pirouettes, this half sole features a wider EVA sole patch for maximum floor coverage, soft leather that shapes and conforms to your foot, and a more rounded toe shape for perfect lines. Special details include the Sophia Lucia "Lovely Heart" embossed into the leather and her signature on the outside lining.
Bought 4 pairs as my daughter needs 2-3 at all times. I bought the 2 med based on her shoe size 7-7.5 and they were too small. The 2 large fit her but she if she grows anymore, she won't be able to use them long. Now I have 2 pairs sitting since I forgot to return them being the start of the season and 30 days runs real fast these days.
Too bad if I used the local company for sizing they charge just to try on. I was hoping that she'd be able to have the large to grow into, but that didn't happen. If I knew it was this way, I would've just bought them locally.
This half sole is perfect if you our your daughter is a turner. My girls are especially my youngest. The sole is made similar to the Bloch Neoflex that my girls dance in on a regular basis. Both of my girls love the fit and comfort. I was worried about size since most reviews say they run small. My oldest wears a 9 in ladies and the XL fits perfect for her. My youngest wears a 7 in ladies and the L works great for her. I hope this review helps!
I purchased a Medium pair online for my daughter who wears a 6.5 street shoe (Size 7 Bloch super jazz) from another company. The shipment was extremely delayed, and she needed them for a performance, so I took her (and my little daughter) to a storefront to buy them. I'm so glad I did. They run extremely small. She needed a Large. My younger daughter who wears a street size 8.5 Toddler was able to fit into the child Mediums with just a tiny bit of growing room. They are very well made and have shown little signs of wear in the few months they have had them. The elastics are still in great shape and the leather is heavy and durable. All in all a great shoe, just very misleading sizing.
Going by the sizing guidelines, I should've ordered a small. I'm typically a 6 1/2 in all dance shoes, but usually veer towards a 7 to be safe. The medium suggests size 8-9 which my feet would never come close to, so I thought the small would be the best choice. After receiving them, the back band is so tight that I'd be afraid it'd snap if I danced in them even once. These will go back. Sadly so, too. They seem to be made very well, just very small.
I can't speak on the quality of these shoes yet as my daughter has not worn them yet. She wears size 8-8.5 shoe so we ordered the M per the sizing chart. They were way to small (she could barely get them on). They went to a dance friend who needed this style. She wears 7-7.5 shoe size and they fit her snugly (the girls thought they would stretch a little). I am re-ordering the L for my daughter.
