good choice for an inexpensive ballet shoe
on September 13, 2011
I am pleased with this purchase. My three year old daughter's foot was measured at Stride Rite recently, and they said she is a perfect 9 and could wear a medium or wide. I bought her a 9.5 in Stride Rite so that it could last the season. She can also currently still squeeze into her Stride Rite 8.5s. (I'm including this info so you can get a better understanding of how this ballet shoe fits.) I ordered the 9.5C Bloch Dance Ballet Slipper for my daughter. The width is good, and she still has a little growing room left in the toe. I know that normally ballet shoes are supposed to fit exactly, but there isn't so much room left in the toe to give us problems, although I think I could have ordered a 9 for now. Many of the other girls in my daughter's ballet class purchased their shoes from Payless. They paid about the same for what they got as what I got, and clearly, the quality of the Bloch Dance Ballet Slipper is a lot better. I would recommend this shoe.
