FIT: ORDER BIG. I'm not kidding. That's the biggest comment in all the reviews and I took them to heart. For example, I wear a size 9, usually narrow and ordered a 10 1/2 which fits perfectly. They're amazingly light and fit like a glove (literally) even with my orthotics inside. (I have really high arches) The shoes envelope your foot nice and snug yet without impeding your mobility. I find them a little tight in the outer toes, hence only a 4 star rating but they're brand new. I'm hoping they'll stretch out a bit with wear.
MATERIALS: They're very light and feel a lot like my old ballet shoes with just a hint of athletic shoe on the heel and ball of the foot. The material does not seem to be particularly sturdy but I think thats probably deceptive as they're made well and appear to be engineered of a seriously considered design. Time will tell..
FUNCTION: I've worn them for each type of class, on a wooden gym floor, a proper wooden dance studio floor and a thick gymnastics mat. Work GREAT on all three surfaces. Just enough slide vs grip and my knees are fine at the end of the hour. For some of the more balance-intensive yoga moves, I do miss the stabilization of my regular sneakers but this just makes those core muscles work harder - and that's the whole point, now, isn't it?
SUGGESTIONS FOR FUTURE DESIGN: Black with the little color stripe is fine but it would be REALLY nice to have some wild colors available: Red and Purple, Fuchia and Lime, Teal and Tangerine.....
I read a lot of reviews on this product before I decided to get it and all mentioned to get it a size and a half bigger, which was great for getting a larger size...I am a size 10 and I ordered a size 11.5 and it was a perfect fit!!!. So much so that I will be buying another type of Bloch shoes soon for other gym classes, great quality indeed.
I would recommend this item to a friend.
I'm in love with the look & the comfort. 😍😍
I'm so glad that I read the reviews first and sized up. I normally wear an 8 so I got a size 9. These are RIDICULOUSLY soft,comfortable and flexible, yet durable! I got these for Zumba since my regular workout shoes hurt the sides of my feet to the point of me having to stop 15 minutes in ( out of 1 hour) duebto my feet hurting. These shoes make me feel barefoot! There is no doubt in my mind that I have finally found the perfect dance fitness shoes!
I can't wait to go to my Zumba class later on and try them out!
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!
