I wear size 8-8.5 in street shoes. I got the size 9. I was like Cinderella's stepsister - fughedabboutit! Could hardly get my foot in them. They're also very narrow. I was also dismayed at the materials - very low quality. Returned for refund.
Great lightweight shoe for any movement that requires lateral movement
by: J Lee - 10/23/2018 - Austin,TX
Fit: Runs very small
I knew from previous purchases of this brand, and the comments on the site to order the shoes a couple size larger than typical - so no surprises there, but those not familiar should be forewarned. ..... I love the extreme lightweight of these shoes, while still being durable and super functional. Plus, I love the look of them too. They are great not only for dance movements, but also aerobics, sprinting type of sports (like tennis) etc. where you need arch support especially for lateral movements and be able to remain light on your feet too.
the sneakers fit as expected. Your Bloch shoe size is different from street shoe sizing. This has ALWAYS been this way. I go a size up for all Bloch, sneakers, jazz, tap, ballet, and the fit is perfect. Years of experience tells me so.. others saying runs small, well it would, but you have to read the fit guide, and through experience, all Bloch, goes a size up ! simple. Lightweight, great flex in arch, allowing for articulation of foot. Spin spot is spot on, and comfortable heel support. Love them.
Wish I had known these sneakers run small in size, as I have had no problems in the past always buying the same sized shoe. But the shoe looks to be of high quality and I look forward to using the pair that properly fits.
I'm glad that I read the reviews before purchasing ... the shoes themselves are very comfortable and I really enjoy the spinning support on the ball of the foot. However, the shoes run small - I needed 1 1/2 sizes larger than what I normally order. Other than that they are comfortable and a great buy.
I'm a Salsa Dancer and was looking for a sneaker that would allow me to perform spins easily. I've worn them several times at different venues and they're fantastic! I used to dance in regular (everyday) sneakers but found that performing multiple turns was almost impossible (too sticky, especially on non-wood floors). A few of my favorite leads have noticed the difference in my turns and really like it as well! I'm still adjusting to the spin spot!
I teach Zumba and spent months looking for the right shoe. I wear a 9.5 regularly - Bloch size 11 fits perfectly.
These shoes offer my foot the right amount of support and cushion without needing inserts. They're also super light. Pivots are a dream - no pull on the knees or hips at all.
When my feet and shins start to burn, I know it's time for a new pair. I can get between 6 and 8 months of use depending on how many classes I'm teaching/taking and on what kind of surface.
I cannot comment on the comfort or durability of this shoe because I have yet to order a size that fits. I'm on my 3rd try getting the right size. The sizing description says to get your street shoe size or 1/2 size larger. I got the 1/2 size larger, too small, sent it back, went a whole size larger and am sending those back today. So now I'm up to a size and a 1/2 larger. Hopefully, this will do the trick. It is, however, a good looking shoe.
We always discourage from wearing your dance shoes on the street. Teachers typically do not want shoes scratched on the street then scratching the dance floor. However, these have a hard rubber sole on the ball of the foot and the heel. The arch is exposed allowing to get wet. They would be ok to be worn on a dry, solid ground. - DDS Customer Service (06/01/2015)
