    These shoes were not comfortable when I bought them, but after breaking them in they fit comfortably. The grips at the bottom are sort of falling off after about 2 years of use, but that's to be expected. I think these shoes are fine for what I paid for them.

    I bought these shoes for a show I was in and within one week, the buckle had broken and the bottom of both shoes started to peel off from the heel. The shoes are comfortable, but for the price, should not be falling apart like they are. I am hoping this was just a bad batch and this is not normal, but I will probably not be buying these again.

    The Shoes are 2.5" inches NOT 3. They are flimsy and came looking as if they were already broken in. They are tight in the front and wide on the sides and I feel as if any time I dance on them they are going to break. They feel cheap as if they were made out of paper and cardboard and ONCE AGAIN THEY ARE NOT THREE INCH HEELS. Also, the straps are already tearing apart.

    Using for a high school musical and the slightly higher heel makes a dancer's legs look great. Leather is really soft and comfortable right out of the box. I did order a full size up to get the right fit. I wear a 7.5 to 8 in street size and the 8.5 shoe is perfect. Just got them so no sure how durable they will be but picture displayed on-line shows a pin in hole buckle and that is not the case. It's a slide pressure buckle that is not as physically secure. Hoping I don't have an issue.

    Strap on right shoe broke the first day I used them. Did not have time to contact Discount Dance show schedule was two days off. Fortunately, costumer for the show was able to repair the strap over night. Hoping this was an exception

    These shoes are incredibly disappointing! The 1st pair started to break down after 4 hours of wear! The leather sole wraps up under the arch of the shoe and finishes on the underside of the heel. At the bottom edge of the heel, it began to come un-glued and detach from the heel, exposing the interior of the heel structure. So, I bought a second pair as I am in a show and couldn't be without shoes. The second pair arrived, and they are doing the same thing! I bought these because the theatre had the same style of Bloch shoes for me to borrow, but in the wrong size. They appeared to be older but in great shape, which is why I thought it would be smart to buy my own pair. Not so. I'm guessing manufacturing and materials have radically changed over the years. Since both pairs are faulty, my conclusion is the brand quality overall is now low.

    I have two pairs of these: one with a 3" heel and one with a 2.5" heel. After 4 years, they are still holding up. These have survived about ten dance heavy shows, including rehearsals. I would buy these again in a heart beat

    This shoe runs VERY wide. I have a "normal" width foot, and these shoes swallowed me whole. I felt unstable and would never be able to dance in them. I am disappointed and will be returning the shoes.

    I ordered them a half size larger on account of my wider foot. They fit rather well and quite comfortably. If you don't have a wide foot like myself, you can probably order your regular street size. I am quite satisfied with these.

    3" T-STRAP BLOCH... 2.5" REALITY

    Disappointed I bought as a gift for a friend. She wanted a 3" heel like mine for auditions with other girls who have custom heels to give her a more professional look, and edge. I agree 100%. I thought I would help with this shoes... Yikes! F.Y.I. discount dance supply. When you measure heel hight you measure from middle of heel up to the sole...NOT from back of heel to sole. (see two pix I posted showing the difference) Sincerely, Saddly Disappointed

    The shoes arrived on time and were more than I expected in terms of quality. These shoes are sized a little smaller than normal. My granddaughter ordered a half size bigger than normal and they were almost too short.

    Strap connection

    I am looking for the older style strap that does not have holes for the buckle - it just tightens as you thread it through. Do you have any tan 7.5 in that style?

    I'm sorry this is the only style of this shoe available currently.

    Can you add taps to this shoe?

    You could fit this shoe with taps but you would have to fit them with the fitting guide and have a cobbler attach them.

    Are the soles of this shoe leather? Are they suede?

    This item would have leather soles.
