This 1.5" heel Pro "Chorus" Character shoe is constructed with an unsurpassed breathable, soft, leather-like, man-made PU upper for softness and support - the ultimate in heel comfort. Shoe also features a leather sole, an easy to set pin buckle strap, a cushioned lining, and a wrapped heel for uniformity throughout. Durable and flexible. The Chorus shoes feature a performance caramel color option that is slightly darker than the caramel in regular Theatricals models. The Theatricals PRO line features upgraded, tailored, shoes for the ideal fit. Professional quality for the professional dancer. A BEST VALUE product.
The shoes did not fit. The suggested fitting for these character shoes was "same as street". I read the previous reviews so I decided to order the shoes 1 entire size larger than my daughter's street shoe size (just in case). These larger shoes are still way too tight. Now I have to, of course, ship back at my own expense. I am not sure why they don't size accurately so the customers don't have to guess and in my case, waste money and time.
The shoes appear to be well constructed, but I can't really rate durability or comfort since my daughter can't even get her feet into them.
These shoes were comfortable but very poor quality! After wearing them to rehearsal for 2 months, they appear as if they are 2 years old. Plus, even more disappointing, is that opening night is TONIGHT; and last night, at rehearsal, the heel broke off during a dance number! Now I will be spending all day trying to find a cobbler or a dance store that hopefully will carry a similar product.
I ordered these for my 8 year old daughter. She says they are comfortable and she's never worn a shoe with a heel before. These do run small. As stated in the description, order 2 sizes larger than street shoe size. She wears a size 2 in street shoes, so I ordered a 4. They fit her very well.
I bought these shoes for a show I'm currently in and ordered them a week and a half before we opened. Thank goodness they really are true to size, at least they were for me. I'm a size 6, and the 6 fit perfectly, both when just wearing them and when dancing in them. These shoes are verrrry comfortable, and the buckle works great--no digging in to the top of my foot. This shoe requires lots of dancing, and I've never had a day of discomfort in them. Breaking them in seems to have been a breeze! I'm very happy with my choice. I didn't know about this brand, and was worried that I would rue the day I didn't buy Capezio...but these are great! I gave only 4 stars for durability only because I haven't had them that long, and can't fully judge on that yet!
