I received these shoes on November 13th, 2021. I put them on for class today, December 4th, and there is a HUGE hole over my right big toe. I take a 90-minute ballet class twice a week, and we had a week off for Thanksgiving, so I wore these shoes for literally four classes before they fell apart. It's a shame because they are very comfortable and aesthetically pleasing, but they just don't last. I will not be buying these again.
I love these shoes, and just wish they could last longer. Although they start showing tear and wear at around the expected time, once there's one hole, it grows really really fast. I imagine it's the downside of any stretch material - the holes get stretched too. For sizing references, I'm a standard 6.5US (37EU) in street shoes, and I wear 5.5B or 6.0B in these.
My daughter received these ballet shoes and absolutely LOVES them. When I asked her how her 1st dance class went with them, she responded with "INCREDIBLE!" She said they were so comfortable and smooth in turns. The fit is comfortable and the added padding in the heel is GREAT! Can't say enough positive things about this ballet shoe. Will definitely be purchasing this brand and style again when she outgrows or wears out her shoes - whichever comes 1st. Would highly recommend this shoe to other dancers. It does run small so be sure to order a whole size to 1.5 sizes up.
We have been searching for a good pair of canvas ballet slippers for my daughter. She has tried on other brands and styles but was not thrilled with any of them. These arrived in the mail and it was love at first fitting. There is a cushion between the toe pad and heel, giving just enough cushion for jumps and leaps. The elastic is strong but very soft. The shoe is a tad big on her but her feet are still growing. One complaint she has had about canvas shoes is how low the sides and heels are. She always feels like they are coming off of her foot. She loves exactly how this shoe hits her heel and toes. In ballet shoes, she wears a 7.5, which is what we ordered and they are perfect. I cannot wait to order more Mariia Shoes. The quality, fit and prices are perfect
I previously had Grishko or Russian pointe ballet shoes that were so uncomfortable and extremely narrow on my metatarsals. It made it hard to balance or even make my feet look nice because they were so squished and it bunched at the tips of the toes. I decided to give the new Mariia shoes a try since I am a big leotard fan of theirs and these do the exact opposite! They are so incredibly comfortable and allow my wider feet to breathe while also being hugged just enough for a nice pointed foot. The no elastics is such a bonus because there's no need to tuck them in and have them digging. The ankle elastics already come pre-sewn so no need to worry about that!
The sizing is a bit off but what they recommended works. I'm usually an 8.5 sometimes 8 depending on the shoe, so I did the .5 size down and they fit well. A little bit of a long and minor heel bunching which could either be due to them being ever so slightly big at the heel or just for a longer heeled person.
On the bottom of the heel, there is a sort of tiny cushion? It doesn't bother me and is quite nice and lifting for a rather flat-footed person. I haven't been able to wear them to class yet but in practice, they look and feel very nice! Lastly, the mesh bag at the bottom of the box was a total surprise and it's so cute I can't wait to wear them.
