    It was and always is a pleasure to work with your representative Denise Vance. My order was process to be delivered during a hurricane. My family and I had to evacuate. When I called and told her what was going on she tracked my package and assured me she would make sure I would receive my package. After returning home my package arrived 2 days later.

    These tap shoes look great in every aspect except that they smell, really bad. I realize that they are man-made, but I have never had a pair of shoes smell so badly. I have to keep them outside because they were making the whole house smell. I just hope that the girls in my daughter's class don't notice. I purchased these for my 10 year old daughter who has out grown her Maryjane tap shoes and needed to go to an oxford style. I didn't want to pay a lot as her foot is still growing. These seemed to fit the bill. I ordered a women's size 8, which is also her street size. The tap shoes have a little bit of room in the toes but does not slip off her heel. They look decent and extra screws were included. Have not tried them to comment on the sound.

    My daughter is a vegetarian and it is hard to find dance shoes that she can wear. She is an advanced dancer and needs a split sole. These fit the bill. It would be nice if they had a toe box.

    This is my second time to write this review. If you want honest opinions, you should post peoples reviews! These shoes are fine but they wreak of mothballs. Smell is hard to get out. Has taken over a month of storing them in a bag full of activated charcoal pellets. Smell is better but still there somewhat.

    I purchased these shoes for my daughter because she had outgrown her other pair of tap shoes. I ordered one whole shoe size up from her other pair. (I also went by the size chart listed with these shoes.) We received these shoes and this brand is less than 1/8 of an inch longer than her size 5 Bloch pair! (I ordered a size 6 in Theatricals.) Most frustrating is that I have to pay return shipping to return these and get a different size that fits. I will be hesitant to buy shoes online in the future because it is too much of a hassle to get the correct size.

    The front soles are formed and longer than I'd like, which makes straight-legged toe stands doable but harder than they should be. But since the shoes I'd really like (I have a clogging pair that I can go en pointe in quite easily and I adore them) are about $80, I'll put up with the less-than favorable front sole on these. If I start doing more tap, I'll get a pair of those. :) Runs true to size. Only used then a few times so can't speak to durability.

    Got these for my daughter, as tap just got added to her schedule. For the 1/2 hr class, these work great. They do run small - her street size is a child 2, so I got an adult 4 - which fits great.

    This shoe looks nice and is very confortable :) I can´t say much about durability because I only have been using it for a week. That´s why I didn´t give a 5 star total rating. It has a good price, I think it´s worth trying it! I would say true to size, if there is any difference comparing to street shoes I would say it´s a 1/2 size larger than my street shoes. I can´t leave without saying that the best in Discount Dance is CLIENT ATTENTION. Congratulations!

    My dancer daughter is very happy with these! Her teacher recommended split sole when we realized she had outgrown her previous shoes, and she had never tried split soles before. They arrived and she tried them on immediately - she is thrilled at how easy it is to articulate her feet in these, and is excited to try them in class. They fit true to size and she says they are very comfortable!

    I ordered these to "test drive" them for my students. For the price, they are a good buy, but they do not have the sound quality of a higher end tap shoe. For the once a week student who does not perform at competition, this shoe is a good choice. It runs true to size in the adult sizes.

    These shoes are good for a single performance. They will not last you more than a few months. They look good and feel good but mine fell apart after 2 weeks and I tap only 2 hours a week. You're better off buying an expensive pair that will last you years.

    They lasted me less than a month and I only take like an hour and a half of pointe per week. I wasn't expecting much from them though. My feet are really narrow with an egyptian shape and I found these pillows to be really small. I usually have problems finding a pad that is not too large for me.

    Runs small. My daughter wears size 4 street shoe. I bought a size 5 and it was too small. She said it is very comfortable and flexible.

    I had to place 2 different orders, as when I received my first shipment, the shoes were too small. the tap shoes are sized very higher than normal sizing. I had to go up 3 sizes to get a size my child could wear. You could possibly go up another 1/2 size and still be safe.

    Is the sole flexible enough to do toe stands easily?

    How do these tap shoes run?

    There is no info on sizing.

    The suggested fitting for this shoe is to order street shoe size. This is just a recommendation since sizing is not guaranteed.
