Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Capezio Toddler/Little Kid Jr.Tyette N625C Tap Shoe (Apparel)
Do not buy these. They are so poorly sized it is just a pain in the rear to get the right fit with this brand. My daughter wears a size 9.5 toddler shoe, so I bought a 10 thinking she would have plenty of room to grow. She was horribly dissappointed when they arrived in the mail and she literally could not even get it on her foot. It was not even close. I sent them back right away, but to add insult to inconvenience, they charged me return shipping. I did not make a mistake in ordering the wrong size. They made a mistake in making the sizes wrong. Very displeased. Go to Payless. Same price, much more accomodating.

Dance shoes don't always run the same size as street shoes. I went to a store that sells dance shoes and got my girls sized. They both were a size bigger in Capezio shoes than their street shoe sizes.

This seems to be typical sizing for dance shoes. You have to buy a couple of sizes larger than their regular shoe size.

I think dance shoes have different sizing. My daughter currently wears a toddler 8 shoe. Today we had her sized at her dance class, and she needed size 12 ballet shoes and size 11 tap shoes.

I was a dancer and never had this phenomenon. I have always taken true to size in dance shoes. This is just bad cutting on Capezio's shoes.

I agree with the other commenters. My daughter wears a size 10 street shoe, and was sized in her dance studio at a 12.5. I don't think it's a problem with the brand or shoe, I think there is just a difference in sizing between dance shoes and street shoes.
