For Sizing Information please read! Aug 26, 2011
Ballet shoes (and even different brands) all have their own strange system of sizing - the sizes do not compare to normal street shoe sizing. According to the Capezio manufacturer, their toddler/little kid ballet shoes are to be ordered one full size up from their current street shoe size. Bloch brand kids ballet shoes are to be sized up 1/2 size. (If you order adult shoes, they're often sized down 2 or 3 sizes...) Any dancewear store will have this information, but unfortunately Amazon doesn't provide this tidbit, so it can be quite confusing as to what size to order. I hope this helps any future purchasers!

sizing confusion resolved? May 16, 2011
These are cute and sweet ballet shoes, and Capezio is a stalwart in ballet wear. I saw all the confusion on sizing, and noticed that the size chart Amazon provides is the chart used by Amazon for all footwear. Having a few dance years under my belt, I'm familiar with the tendency toward sizing discrepancy in ballet shoes. I looked on dancedepot.com to find Capezio's size chart: [...] According to that chart, style 205 (this shoe) is one of the ones that runs comparable to street size. Best bet is still to measure your child's foot anyway. Might I STRONGLY recommend going to a shoe store so they can do it with their magical slidey foot scale. It's *made* for measuring feet for shoes (unlike the tape measure in your sewing kit). Besides, if your (3-5 year old) is like mine, they'd much rather play along with the nice shoe store salesperson than Mama (eyes roll)...

Sizing info Jul 27, 2012
I did not purchase through Amazon after reading the reviews about sizing issues; we ended up going to a dance apparel store to have her fitted. My daughter is between a 6.5 and 7 size toddler street shoe. The size 8T medium capezio Daisy 205 was a good fit with room to grow (but not too loose). The elastic around the outside of the shoe allows for adjustment. She is very petite but the narrow shoe seemed like it could become too tight as her foot grows. Hope this review helps other moms choose a size! The quality of the shoe is just a good as I remember when I took dance for years. I definitely think this shoe will get us through a year of ballet classes.

These are nude, not pink. My comparison between Capezio vs. Bloch toddler ballet shoes. Aug 13, 2014
I am not a dancer nor do I have any previous experience with ballet slippers, but I do know a quality shoe when I see one. I wasn't happy with the options at retail stores in my area, so I found these on Amazon for less than what I would have paid in store.
My 3 yr old wears size 8.5 normally, even fits into a size 8--so I read these reviews and ordered up (size 10 D). "D" is the normal width and was perfect. These fit with only a little room to spare, so I think I will actually exchange them for size 10.5 D. They run extremely small.
I ordered both the Capezio Daisy 205 Ballet Shoe (Ballet Pink,10 N US Toddler) and the Bloch Dance Bunnyhop Slipper Ballet Flat (Pink,10 D US Toddler). Please see the pictures for comparison that I posted in the image gallery.
Both shoes are extremely well made and have nice leather flexible soles for movement.
The Bloch Bunnyhop shoes win in my comparison. I wanted a PINK ballet slipper to match the other shade of pink that is sold in most dance shops for leotards, tights, etc. These are perfect!! The lining in the Capezio shoes is nice, and I like the name tag. Unfortunately, they look too "nude" and won't match the pink leotard and tights that we own. And for that reason I will be sending them back and keeping the Block Bunnyhops.
The other reason that I like the Bunnyhops is that the elastic string can be pulled tight in the front, and it cinches up the rest of the shoe all the way around the ankle, for a tighter fit. The Capezios have an elastic string but it wasn't efficient in cinching up the shoe to make it smaller or tighter. It was just for looks.

Just right! May 31, 2014
I read most of the reviews carefully before ordering. I wanted to make sure I had the right fit. My daughter is three and wears a toddler size 8. She also has a pretty wide foot, so it was nice that this shoe came in a wide option. I ordered one up from street size as recommended. I went with a toddler 9 wide and it fit great with just a little bit of room for growth. This shoe is great quality and affordable!
