Love them! These are a bit tight, but I like tight shoes. The sole is hard at first, but is slowly getting softer. I love the way this hugs my feet! These also look really good on my feet, another plus... many people ask where I got them! I'm very happy I chose these instead of a pair I tried on in store.

This would be the perfect shoe, however due to sizing issues, it is not cost effective. I purchased this shoe for my daughter 1 size larger. The shoe info states that for children's sizes, order true to street shoe size. She could not even get the shoe on her foot. I called for sizing information and they stated to try another size larger. I ended up paying $16 in shipping (and we live 10 miles from where the product ships). I did not want to risk another another $16 dollar turn around shipping charge and thus ended up buying 2 1/2 sizes larger than her street shoe. They fit perfectly. Plus it was a 3 week turn around. Unless you know the right size, this may not be the purchasing route for you...

Comments about Balera Slip On Jazz Shoe:
Sizing is ridiculous. Order 1 to 1 1/2 sizes up, they say. My daughter is barely in a 1, really is still a 12.5. I ordered a 2 and a 3, and the 3 was at least an inch too short. Like a baby shoe.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I own a dance studio and I recommend this product to all of my students' parents. It is a cheap product that is very long lasting. The shoe is very well made and a great color! It is a great fit as well. If you order the same size as street shoe, it should fit perfect. My dancers really do love these shoes!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

These shoes seem to be a good quality product but the sizing is really off. My daughter's jazz shoes in a different brand were 1.5 and her size in regular shoes is a 2 (with plenty of room). I had to order these shoes in a 4.5 to fit her and they just fit! Will probably be buying another pair from somewhere else really soon as there is no room for growth in these shoes.

These shoes lasted me 6 months and I wore them twice a week. Great durability!

Way to small, my daughter could not get these on even tho we ordered 1 and one half size bigger than street shoe, I will return them, not sure what to suggest since you cannot try them on. I wish I would not have bought them, a waste of money :(
Great Shoe for the price

About Me Trendy
Shoe is great color and ordered 1 size bigger and they where perfect.
had to reorder because of size
See all my reviews
I ordered the same size (5) in the same style of tap shoes, and the difference was huge. I held them together and there was two inches of length difference. The tap shoes were slightly big on my daughter, so I just ordered one size larger for the reorder on jazz. I would say there is two sizes difference between a 5 in jazz and a 5 in tap. My daughter wears a 2 or 3 in street shoes, but we had to end up getting a 6 in jazz shoes.
Very pleased and happy with the shoes

My dance team girls use the shoes for dance competitions and we are very happy with them,
WAY TOO SMALL
By Frustrated mom
from Central Texas
Seems to be a good shoe, but the sizing is WAY off. You have to order at least two sizes bigger, and then it's still anyone's guess whether it will fit or whether you will have to return it and try again - very frustrating. My nine year old wears a size 2. On our reorder, we got a size 4, which still seems really tight. Apparently, the size 4 is considered an "adult" shoe at "adult" shoe price. I found this laughable because my daughter is only in third grade and has the smallest foot in her class.

The shoes are great! Y only concern was at the beginning because it was the first time getting shoes for my daughter, who is 13 now. But, I read almost all the comments, and based on that I decided the size. She is 5 and 6 on street shoes (for kids) I got size 7 for woman and they are really good. The quality good, and she loves them! So if you want to get them, think about 3 or 4 extra sizes.
