FYI: These have no arched middle (no sole at the arch). VERY short laces. DO size up. I'm a consistent women's regular (non-wide) 8, but for these, size 9 fit me like a glove.
The bad: there is very little support in the shoe. The snugness and fittedness of the toe looks great, but after a month of owning them and going to classes I developed a Morton's Neuroma, caused by shoes that do not allow the toes room to move around. And without the support, they just were quite bad for my feet. The neuroma was caught early and I am undergoing physical therapy for it, but I would not recommend these for anyone whose foot is wider. I actually do have standard width feet, but I am now buying the So Danca dance sneaker in a wide width to prevent further injury.
On non-carpet surfaces, they also work well. You can easily spin...but there's enough grip to keep you from sliding/skidding all over the place.
Also my ball of my feet isn't lining up with the rubber grips beneath but instead Tallinn in the space in between! Wish I could return this but my mum already through away the packaging etc!
MY ONLY HOPE IS FOR IT TO STRETCH OVERTIME ....that however still will not fix the ball of the foot issues!
.ABOUT SIZING: Bloch dance shoes run 1 to 1 1/2 sizes higher than street shoes. It is just the way they are sized. These seem to be about 1 1/2 sizes larger as they are longish in the toe bed and short in the arch. If you have a long arch, you will probably need 1 1/2 sizes larger. If you have longish toes and a short arch, you may (possibly) be able to use a shoe 1 size larger than your street size.
