    I've had these flats for a little over a year, and I really like them. The foot bed is slightly padded, making these more shock absorbent than most flats, and while they took some time to break in, they are now very comfortable. I would like to point out one thing though: the Amazon sizing is inaccurate. I'd recommend buying either your regular European size, or half a size bigger than your usual US size since the conversion is off by half a size. For example, I wear a 7 US and bought them in 37.5. They were a bit tight at first, but after wearing them for a few hours, they have molded to my feet. I'll definitely be buying more colours!

    I love the Bloch Fonteyne flats - ever so comfy. I have many pairs in 37 and they fit perfectly. I just ordered a grey and pink in 37.5 (thought I would size up a bit for stockingless summer wear) The 37.5 were way too tight. Have they changed their sizing? This is a most comfortable shoe - but beware of the sizing change.

    These shoes are very comfortable, and I love the look. I give them four stars because I ordered one half size down (as I always do with ballet flats) and they were too small. I returned them and ordered my actual size which is still a little small but i'm sure will slowly stretch. Other than that, they are very comfortable, almost like wearing real ballet slippers. I am thinking of getting another pair in black.

    My significant other gifted me these and they are absolutely perfect! I had been searching high and low for a quality pair of black flats, researching the best brands and reading tons of reviews. I am tired of all this cheap crap that keeps falling apart less than a year of wear and tear. After purging my closet from said crap, I have started replacing and collecting the essentials that will (hopefully) last me years. Anyway, I came across this brand when someone mentioned how durable and well-made their shoes are (and also being a dancewear company, they should know how to make ballet flats). I initially wanted the prima ballerina pair in black, but they were sold out in my size. Somehow I managed to find this style in black and in my usual 38 (I'm a solid 7.5), and I immediately wishlisted them. No sooner had I done so, they went on mega sale! Lucky for me, my s/o bought them for me as a V-day gift (and received $ back from the price adjustment). When they arrived, I was so excited to try them on. I was a little nervous from previous reviews because the sizing sounded like it was all over the place (TTS, too big, too tight), but I went with my gut and received the 38s. I have other EU sized shoes that are 38s, and to the commenter stating that the US/EU conversion is off, I agree. 38 = 7-7.5. These are buttery soft, and the heel area is snug. I love that I'm able to adjust the bow. These will need a little breaking in to help the leather mold to my feet. Other than that, I am extremely happy with my shoes! A quality flat at a fast-fashion price, definitely a bargain! BTW, on the box it says 38 = 24 cm (if it helps anyone). I just wish online retailers could list sole lengths, not just the shoe size - it would help so many of us out.
