Bloch Pro Elastic - Flexible canvas upper.
This style runs larger than marked. The manufacturer recommends going two to three sizes smaller than your normal size.
When I signed up for an adult ballet class, I decided to take a risk and buy some ballet slippers online. I have a pair of leather Bloch slippers from 15+ years ago that were just too narrow for my feet. Based on the sizing on those, I went with the 3.5C. (Street size 6-6.5). Remember, ballet shoes are anywhere from 2-3 sizes smaller than your street size. I've since taken three classes and the canvas shoe is much more comfortable than my old leather slipper! The added width really helps my toes grip the floor. Risk: panned out.
This is a terrific slipper. I have painful bunions but with this slipper, I never feel any pressure. The shoe fits perfectly and it's great to have the straps pre-sewn. It makes my arch look good, too. I just love these shoes! They fit like the proverbial glove. I take 3 ballet classes per week and would be lost without these slippers.
This is my first pair of ballet slippers, purchased for a beginner adult ballet class once a week. They are super comfortable & I was fortunate enough to get the size right on my first try. Yay! I wear a size 6 & got a size 3.5. Great quality. Very pleased.

I love these ballet shoes; I'm about to order a second pair. They are comfortable and functional. I wear a 6.5 street shoe (I have very wide feet.) and 3 D in these is perfect for me.
