    NICE FIT FOR NARROW FEET

    I am street size 7 or 7.5, typically narrow. Ordered 7.5 M and it fits perfectly with very thin socks or bare feet (or tights I would imagine). These are my first pair of jazz shoes in about 25 years (I teach ballet) but I don't remember the leather on Capezio shoes being quite so tough. When I danced jazz back in the 90s, the leather was very soft and contoured to the foot much better. These feel more like the full sole shoes they used to sell. I like that they fit snugly and the rubber sole is not too sticky on my marley floor.

    GREAT BASIC TO KEEP ON HAND TO COVER ALL NEEDS

    Great "catch-all" shoe. It can stand in anywhere in a pinch, and is decent for jazz class.

    LIGHT AS A FEATHER

    These feel great! I've never had a jazz shoe so light and unobtrusive. Maybe I'm out of touch and this is just how all shoes are right now but I feel like I can fly in these. I've been dancing mostly in socks lately and these don't feel much different. I hope they last!

    TOO SMALL

    I ordered these shoes a half-size larger than street size, thinking I'd be safe, but they are way too small. They say to order street size, but I would say order one size larger. It's too bad they don't have these sized correctly because now I have to send them back and pay the shipping costs all because I believed their sizing and even went up a half-size. This is unfortunate.

    I ordered my street size women's 9 based on other reviews. Shoes are way too tight, can barely squeeze my toes in. Will try to exchange for size 10.

    COMFORTABLE SHOE

    Nice jazz shoe for beginners, does run a little large. I would order one or one and one half size larger than street shoe not 2x as recommended.

    GOOD BASIC JAZZ SHOE

    I bought these jazz shoes for my son. I ordered a size 2 sizes above his street shoe size and they fit just fine. He has only had them for 2 weeks so I can't really speak to durability.

    PERFECT BEGINNER BOY SHOES FOR IRISH DANCE

    These were the perfect starter shoe for my 2nd grader boy in beginning Irish dance. His teacher didn't want the young boys to have much of a heel at all. And the price on this site can't be beat! I sized up 2 from his street shoes like the description suggested, and they fit perfectly. Couldn't be happier with this purchase! And I'm so grateful not to have to buy $100 shoes for a beginner!

    SLEEK AND COMFORTABLE BLACK JAZZ SHOE

    my son (9 years old) is in a musical for a local acting school for which a pair of jazz shoes are required for rehearsal and performances. my son has very long skinny feet and wears a size 4 in kids street shoes. when I followed the chart his kids 4 converted to an adult 6 (which fit him perfectly). Initially I followed the additional instructions and added 2 more sizes (because he is a male) but realized when we got the size 8 pair in the mail they were way too big and that I should have just completed the child to adult conversion and stopped. So, I ordered the 6 (and again, they fit perfectly!). I have returned the size 8 pair for a refund. I have not rated the durability yet as he has not worn them yet for me to tell how long they will last but considering the brand and other reviews I am confident they will be a good investment.

    ADULT "E-SERIES" LACE UP JAZZ SHOE

    Ordered 2 of these pairs for my boys who needed them for a play they were in. I wasn't sure if they were boys or girls or unisex shoes. I ordered a wide in their size and hoped for the best. They were true to size and very comfortable for them.

    NICE QUALITY, TRUE TO SIZE

    These leather jazz shoes run true to size in both length and width. I thought they might run snug or slightly small, but they didn't. I ordered these jazz shoes for my teenaged daughter. Had to re-order (street shoe size) since we bought 1/2 size larger on the first attempt. Very pleased with quality and flexibility. Will order new size, and return the other pair for refund. (Exchanges can take up to 3 weeks, they say.)

    NIFTY FOR AUDITIONS

    I got these for a musical audition. They fit pretty true to size. My current sneakers are 8W and that's what I ordered in the jazz shoes, and there's the same thumb-width of space in front of my toes that my sneakers have. The jazz shoes WERE a bit snug when I put them on, but they're dancing shoes and they're supposed to fit your feet a bit closer than sneakers, etc. By the time the dance workshop was done, the leather had stretched out to a much more comfortable level. They looked smart and professional and helped me feel that way. The only real drawback was that I could feel where the patch of sole (sole patch? :-P) under the balls of my feet ended and after standing for a while it did hurt. That may lessen the more I wear the shoes, and my feet tend to hurt anyways.

    This items runs much smaller. I ordered 2sz bigger than street size and the shoes were still tight. Now I will have to return them for a bigger size. over all I like the feel of the fabric and I'm sure once I get the right fit they will be awesome.

    FEMININE, FLEXIBLE

    Street size (to fit extra heel-length of orthotics): 13W (E-Series size 14W). Full-length padded orthotics fit nicely. (Padding needed for minimal-interior shoe with exposed cloth inner surfaces.) Toe box fitted with folds beneath toes & ball of foot so area of sole outside of turning-pad will wear but I haven't used them enough to give wear-potential, and only use them up to one night/week (Social English Country and Contra dancing). I'm grateful for a shoe that's large enough and also tan rather than black. It's trim-looking and very flexible.

    How do sizes run?

    I need a men's size ten jazz shoe in tan. Are the sizes on chart men'swomen's?

    Thank you for your inquiry! According to the sizing tab, these shoes are sized in general adult sizes. The sizing tab also suggests for men to order two sizes larger than their street size. so if you are typically a size 10 as your street size, we would recommend going up to a 12 in this product.

    mens?

    My son's show choir instructor linked the Capezio E series shoe for his costume. However, the picture makes me think it is a woman's shoe. He wears a size 9.5 MENS shoe! Suggestions?

    This shoe is sized for women. Men must go up 2 sizes from street shoe to convert to women's sizing and then follow the sizing recommendation.

    Is the sole (outer) rubber or leather? Could I use this for a practice shoe for ballroom dance?

    The outer sole on this shoe is rubber.

    Split-sole, with "rubber" (firm, fingernail-dentable plastic?) thin ball of foot and 3/8" thick heel. It moves well, is very trim & flexible (and obviously flat). - Sasquatch (05/27/2013)

    Yes, if your child wears a child size 2.0, please increase the street shoe size by 2 and follow the sizing suggestion for the shoe being ordered. The 4.0 would be the suggested size for this style, although sizing is only a suggestion not a guarentee.
