Thank you for your feedback.
True to size - I am a 7.5 / 38 and the 38 fit me like a glove.
They fit true to size and can be adjusted slightly with the pull string.
Fits true to size, leather quality is great.

    Size: 37.5 M EU / 7.5 B(M) USColor: Caffe Verified Purchase
    I bought the Caffe color and it is a very dark brown with a slight sheen to it. It looks nice and matches with everything. The shoe is comfortable for about 3-4 hours if you are walking around a lot. After 3-4 hours, the shoe itself doesn't rub, but your feet will start to hurt because the shoe is very very flat and doesn't have any support. Overall though, I am impressed that I did not get any blisters after wearing them the first time. The leather seems to be high quality and the lining is soft. The leather is very supple though and does start to crease in a few spots after you wear it a few times. It doesn't really bother me but others might not like it.

    About the sizing issue, Amazon/Bloch have an incorrect Euro to US size conversion chart, which is why a lot of people have said this runs small. For example, they convert a Euro 37 to a US 7, when actually the real conversion is supposed to be a US size 6. So, the shoe runs pretty much true to size if you just convert your US size to the Euro size correctly. I usually wear a size 7 in US shoes (sometimes 6.5) and I got a "7.5/37.5." It was definitely very snug but it has already started to stretch a bit. I probably could have gone with a "8.0/38" (which is actually supposed to be 7.0/38) as well and it would have been slightly looser.

    Size: 39.5 M EU / 9.5 B(M) USColor: Black Verified Purchase
    This shoe is a great deal for the price, keeping in mind you do get what you pay for. This is not a high end shoe, but the leather is very soft and after wearing a handful of times, doesn't show any scuffs or other distress. It does not have much padding in the sole of the shoe and the ties do not function like they do on a ballet shoe - I pulled one to try to get a more snug fit and it just stretched out and no longer matches the other bow.

    I would order this shoe again for the fact that the leather is so soft and did not require any breaking in. I have bony feet and often find ballet flats initially rub blisters on my heel, pinky toe area, and just under my ankle bone; these shoes didn't do that at all.

    I typically wear an 8-8.5 and I ordered the 39.5, which fit perfectly. I don't think the chart that correlates US size to European size is accurate in the listing.

    Size: 39.5 M EU / 9.5 B(M) USColor: Rutabaga Verified Purchase
    i have been looking for a cheaper but still well made ballet flat because i can't afford purchasing Tieks in every color. so when i came across these, i was so happy because as an ex-ballerina as well i figured these could be my new lucky shoes! first off, i am an 8.5 /9 and after reading the reviews decided to get the 9 because they said they ran small. small is not the word. the 9 felt like my foot was in bondage. so i exchanged them for a 9.5. the 9.5 is still too tight. and strangely enough, the left food even though it says 9.5 on it, still feels as small as the 9. i thought perhaps if i wore them a bit and stretched them out with foot stretchers they'd eventually be ok. boy was i wrong. my big toe on my left foot is bruised and hurts like hell. and i started walking on the side of my foot because the pressure from the sides hurt too much. i could barely walk home from dinner in them. i'll be honest, i wore them all day but i work in an office and sit most of the day so i didn't even walk around much. i am so disappointed because they really are adorable shoes!. and i know some of you might be saying well, maybe your left foot is abnormally larger than your right. well while that may be true, i've never had an issue like this before. stay away to avoid hassle. i should have just saved instead of now wasting my money and waited to get the Tieks.

    Size: 39.5 M EU / 9.5 B(M) USColor: Black Verified Purchase
    I read the amazon reviews for this product and ordered a size 40 rather than a 39. Perfect fit! Very comfortable! Went back and ordered a second pair. I was not going to spend 300 dollars for the French competitor. These UK ballets are just fine, even though they are not made in the UK. All leather inside and out but with a small rubber tip on the heel. Could not be more happy! And Amazon sale price sweetened the purchase of both pair. I will come back for more when more colors in my size appear. I bought black.

    Size: 41 M EU / 11 B(M) USColor: Black Verified Purchase
    I love these flats - they are the most "classic" black flats I could find. I usually wear a 9 1/2 or 10, and the size 41 fit me perfectly! They are leather lined, and so comfortable! The leather is incredibly soft, and the shoe really conforms to my foot well.

    Size: 39 M EU / 9 B(M) USColor: Stone Verified Purchase
    I wasn't sure I would like BLOCH flats as I generally purchase high end designer flats but I will never purchase another brand of flats again as the quality of BLOCH flats are amazing. These feel as though I have worn them several times - no blisters, no need to break in! The bow is functional as it can be used to adjust the fit of the flats. I have now purchased 6+ pairs of BLOCH flats from Amazon and each one I've loved. I did purchase a 39 in this style based off reviews (normally I wear a 38) and it was a perfect fit.

    Size: 39.5 M EU / 9.5 B(M) USColor: Prune Verified Purchase
    I ordered the flat in a 39.5 based on the customer reviews. It arrived, the quality of the leather was beautiful and nicely made. The shoe was way too small ( I always wear a 9M, if I know a shoe runs small, I go up to a 9.5). I reordered a 41, it arrived and it was way too large. I am now in a quandry. Loved the color, loved the leather, would love to wear the shoe, do not know if I need a 40 or a 40.5. Therefore, I am doing nothing. I may call the manufacturer for help since there is not any at the site. Note: Amazon is amazing to deal with regarding returns.
