I ordered a medium and I'm usually a small. I could not zip the back and it took me a while to get it over my hips. I guess this is cut different and will need to go to a store next time.
This is the shoe our team uses so my daughter had to have it. My older daughter didn't originally prefer them. However, this was before my discovery that I should have ordered a full size up from her street shoe. My younger daughter, who also dances, likes these shoes and never complains about them. The shoe she wears is also a full size up from her street shoe. They have held up well over the season, but we reserve them for contests and performances using a different pair for practices.
these seemes more than a full size smaller - I am usually a 7.5 and these said the 9 would fit 7.5-8 but they were still too tight in the length for me
The material was soft and easy to move around in.
I love the shoes I just wish there was a bigger size than 10. I can't really enjoy them bc they're a little too tight.. Oh well. For people w smaller feet they're awesome!
