I would never buy another shoe now that I have found this Balera slip-on. They are the same design as the Capezio for less than half the price. The only downside to this shoe is that Weissmans is constantly changing their sizing recommendations for them. I order these shoes all the time and I still think the best way to size them is +2 sizes for all kids shoes and + 1/2 size for adults (the original recommendation). I have probably ordered 50 pair of these shoes this year and they have all fit if I have stuck to that sizing suggestion. Best of luck!

Good for the price. Inside lining tares easily. Outside is pretty durable. Order full size up from street shoe. Comfortable. A bit slippery on gym floors.

2 Sizes Small
By Dance Teacher
from Salinas, CA
This product has been frustrating to purchase. I have ordered for students and then had to reorder. It seems that it runs something more like 2 sizes to small, not just 1 or even 1.5. It also runs a little high on the front of the ankle, like a jazz boot, so if it is too tight, that causes discomfort. Don't get me wrong. I like the shoe. Just be forewarned on sizing.
from Los Angeles
I order these all the time for my students. They fit well if you follow their sizing guidelines. They easily last a year, and usually 2-3 years.

Great jazz shoe
By Jazzy one
from Warwick, RI
These shoes are great quality for the price. Great for young students as you don't have to worry about shoes coming untied... The sizes run really small, so just order at least 1 to 2 full sizes up.
