So this shoe is awesome. They are comfortable and look great. However! They will absolutely get holes in them within months. I try to have my daughter only wear them sparingly during rehearsals, mainly to break them in, and save them for competition and recitals. Since they are fabric the old ones will stretch with their feet and are what she uses for daily use. 2nd, they tell you street shoe size. THIS IS FALSE! You will most likely need at least 1 size bigger, but dont' be surprised if it's more like a size and a half.
