Bloch

Bloch Logo
Bloch´s philosophy of listening to dancers is still as strong today as it was when Jacob Bloch made his first pair of pointe shoes in 1932. Bloch arrived from Europe in 1931 at the height of the Great Depression and began making shoes by hand in the workshop where he lived.

Bloch loved watching ballet and visited many dance studios. At one such studio, he noticed a young dancer who was having trouble staying on pointe. Bloch promised he would make her a better pair of shoes, and so he did. After that, Bloch´s reputation for making good dance shoes spread rapidly.

At Bloch, the respect the company has for its clients' art is infinite. Contributing to a dancer's artistry, in even the slightest way is the ultimate Bloch goal. Admittedly jealous of their clients' artistic ability, Bloch is proud to contribute confidence and beauty through the best dance footwear in the world.

I can not imagine why Zappos would suggest sizing down 3 sizes for these. I did, and they were 3 sizes too small! I know dance shoes fit differently, but this was way off.

Second try ordering the Neo Flex in Black. I returned a size 10; wanted a size 10.5 which wasn't available so I went with a size 11. Turns out, they were a comfortable fit. For reference, I wear 9.5 W-10 M shoe.

Extremely lightweight and comfortable dance shoes that provide support while also allowing your foot to flex. This is my second time buying these dance shoes and I love them! They allow me to easily turn/swivel on the dance floor, thus protecting my knees. Highly recommend. They hold up very well. I bought my last pair more than three years ago and while they show some wear and tear, they are still good to go! One note: They run small. I needed to go one full size LARGER (I usually wear a size 9, but bought size 10 for these shoes).

These aerobic dance shoes are great for Zumba! The smooth soles glide easily over the floor---- none of the gripping action that leads to knee injuries during pivots and direction changes. The shoes are well-made and hold up extremely well. However, they run small. Order one size larger than your street shoe size for a good fit.

If you plan to wear these bare foot, buy 1/2 size larger. If you are wearing tights or socks, get one size larger. They are comfortable and are nice and light.

I ordered these for my daughter's upcoming dance season. She wears a children's size 2 shoe, but with the Bloch jazz slippers she fits into a 4.5. I knew from previous seasons that this slipper runs different from her actual shoe size.

Exactly what I was hoping to find for barre and jazz classes. So glad, too, I went with pink instead of black. The color is soft with hints of mauve—as understated as pink can be. If you decide to order, believe all the reviews that warn this shoe runs a full size or as much as a size and a half too small. I usually wear 9.5 and ordered 10.5, which was snug with very thin socks. I thought I might be happier with an 11, but there was little difference in the toe box width or length. The 11 was wider at the heel and mid-foot and slipped on my heels even with the laces secure. I kept the 10.5. I would have liked to wear the shoes with thicker socks, but they are perfectly comfortable with thin socks and perform as I had hoped they would.

The shoes, which I ordered in my regular size street shoe, were too small. I re-ordered them in a 1/2 size larger and will see if that works. I also was able to get them in the larger size in the preferred color, which was not available in the size I originally ordered.

Stop reading reviews and follow Bloch’s recommendation of ordering two sizes down from your street shoe. I ended up ordering one size down after driving myself crazy with reviews. My daughter is using them but a size below would have been perfect. She wears a Street shoe women’s 8, I ordered 7, should have ordered 6.

These were really hard to judge on the size. I was told to order up in these by other dance moms. They ended up being a little big. I would do research on the size needed before ordering.

These are the fourth pair of Bloch DRT Mesh Sneakers that I have owned. I buy a new pair every year. I use these exclusively for Jazzercise and my feet are never sore. I have tried a lot of different brands, including Ryka, before settling on these. I wear an 8-8.5 show and have to order these in size 10. They have a nice spin place on the soles and the split sole is perfectly comfortable with excellent arch support. With the mesh, my feet are never hot either. My only problem is taking them off after Jazzercise so I don't wear them on the street.

This is my second pair of Bloch mesh sneakers used for dance. Runs small best to get 1 size bigger than your regular size shoe. I only ordered 1/2 size up but wearing thicker socks my toes are snug to the end of the shoe. Once I wore it for awhile it will be good for dance exercise.

I have been wearing Bloch sneakers for Zumba for over 8yrs, These sneakers provide excellent arch support but this recent purchase proved to be 1 1/2 sizes smaller than my usual size in shoes. I am usually size 6 1/2 -7M, ended up with size 8 1/2 in these sneakers for a comfortable fit.

I love this shoe and it has a great fit. The sizing runs about 3 sizes smaller than your street shoe. I am so disappointed that the straps came sewn on and were too tight. I had to return because elastic was an inch shorter than my current pair and way to tight.

Wear US size 6.5 shoe - purchase US size 8. Shoe runs size and a half smaller. Once you know this, you can't beat this shoe for dance.

These shoes felt a full size smaller. I ordered up a half-size and they were still small. The arch didn't line up with mine at all. Width seemed fine.

I have the worst time finding shoes that fit - depending on the brand and style I have everything from an 8.5 to a 10! So I fully expected to have to exchange these a few times, but to my surprise the 9.5 was perfect. I never wear heels (it's been maybe 5 years since I last wore a pair?) but I'm in a show that requires them so... anyway, I've only been able to wear them twice so far but lasted the full rehearsal in them, no blisters or major discomfort, and I feel steady in them while dancing. I ended up with Bloch for my first pair of jazz shoes and now I won't order any other brand.
