My daughter has these as her first ballet shoe and they are working out perfectly. As previously noted, definitely order a whole size larger. Also, the previous concern of a rigid sole was not an issue, as there is a flexible leather sole, with the inside of the shoe lined with fabric. Would buy again!
I got these for my daughter for the dance class I teach and they were great until outgrown.
Her's were about a shoes size bigger than her street shoe size and that fit great. Now it is time to order the next size. She's growing fast which is why cheaper priced shoes are nice.
