A note on SIZING:
Many dance shoe sizes do not correspond to street shoe sizes. For these shoes, buy two sizes down from your US women's street shoe size. So if you wear size 8 shoes normally, you will need size 6 in these ballet slippers.
Width: The widths are A,B,C,D,E with A being very narrow and E being very wide. I actually recommend buying these from a local store at least the first time, so you can try different widths. If that's not an option, search "shoe size width chart" and you can find a good chart. (Amazon won't let me post a link to a chart.)
Also know that leather will stretch slightly after some wear.
My only complaint is the stitched in elastic is a little high on the foot. Its supposed to sit between ankle & toes, but its right against the ankle. Nothing a seam ripper/needle thread cant fix. I like the criss-cross elastic, so I will add another piece while I'm fixing this.
All in all, great shoe for the price. I know others will be ordering from our Ballet class as they like the full sole.
I went to minimalist and barefoot style shoes in January 2013 and absolutely love it. Most of my foot pain has gone. However, it cost a lot to switch all my shoes out. I have a few pairs of expensive barefoot style shoes from merell that are ballet shoe style. They have Vibram soles. They cost 70$ on sale, and after a year they are dirty, worn, and the soles have become very smooth (dangerously so...I almost busted my butt) after I left them in the sun to dry. This is exaclty the same concept except I would not wear them for streetwalking (hehe). But since I mostly just wear them to go from the house to the car to work they are really only exposed to smooth flooring and have held up pretty well. The inside elastic was rubbing my foot raw, but I cut off the heat sealed end and it no longer bothers me (nor has it frayed).
If you are not a dancer, and are looking to get into barefoot/minimalist shoes, this would make a cheap introduction. My only suggestion is to buy a half size up and put an insole in until you get used to it as there is no padding at all.
