Do not follow the sizing chart. These run small. The chart needs to be updated so that customers can accurately order without the hassle of exchanges or returns.
I did read the reviews and ordered one size up and way too small. I'm going to go up another 2 sizes so that means I will be going 3 sizes up from my daughter's street shoe size. The chart says same as street shoe.
Besides the sizing the shoes does seem of good quality and is soft with a lot of stretch.
The description says to buy according to the child's shoe size. I ordered a 10 for my daughter that wears 9.5 street shoes. There was no way to squeeze her feet in these shoes! Wish I had looked at the reviewer that said to buy 2 sizes bigger. That would probably would have been the right size.
My younger daughters size 10 slippers from another store is getting a bit snug on her. Her older sisters size 11, from the same store, have room to grow. I ordered these ballet slippers in size 11 for my younger daughter. They are so small and tight I can barely squeeze her feet in. I know ballet shoes are supposed to be snug, but these are squashing her toes in and cutting into the back of her foot. I got them at a discounted price during their Black Friday sale, and t is not worth it to return them and pay the shipping cost. I will pass them to a friend who’s daughter has small feet, and order the correct size for my daughter.
Other than the size issue the shoes are very durable and very cute. I think once I get the correct size, my daughter will be very happy with them.
I found these ballet shoes to fit true to size (but a tad smaller) for my daughter who wears a size 9.5-10 street shoe, she wears the size 10 ballet shoe. However I am picky about the fit and don't like to buy shoes that are too big, so if you want the shoes to fit with room, you may want to go up a half size.
The best thing about these shoes is how narrow they are. We have also worn the Sansha star split, which is a great beginner shoe. However, for my daughters very narrow feet, they were baggy looking. These ballet shoes however look fantastic on her feet. And I love that there's not elastic to tie at the top of the vamp of the shoe.
For Children the size chart says order same as shoe size.I would recommend Order 2 sizes up from shoe size. My daughters wear an 7.5 and an 11 regular shoe. The daughter that wears the 7.5 needed a size 9 and and my daughter with the size 11 needed a size 1. These shoes have a nice stretch to them that conform to the feet, but also run a tad on the narrow side. I ordered these for my daughters and all of the younger dancers I teach because the shoes didn't have the drawstring in the front (if you've ever taught or dressed little ones you know that bow never stays tied and wastes a lot of class time retying them). All the dancers also needed to be ordered 2 sizes larger for the correct fit.
