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)...

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 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.

Cute shoe but terrible sizing Sep 10, 2007
By Boca Mummy
I bought this ballet slipper for my 5yo daughter for her first ballet class. The shoe is very pretty, but the sizing is way off. I ordered her a size bigger, but it was still far too tight, and as her feet are pretty narrow, it was also way too wide. I returned this slipper (in the end, it cost me a ridiculous amount of money due to return shipping) and bought her ballet slippers at Payless which are her size and fit.

Size Chart is WRONG Apr 14, 2011
By J Koz
My 3 year old daughter wears a size 7 in toddler shoes. Because of my years of dance, I know that ballet shoe sizes are usually not the same as street shoe sizes. We don't have a dance store within an hour driving distance from our home, so I had to order all of her dance supplies online. Because of this, I measured her foot 3 times to make sure that I got the correct measurement. Both feet were just under 5.5 inches long. When I looked at the size chart for this shoe, the length of her foot matched with a size 7. I know that some brands have converted their sizes to match street shoe sizes, so I thought that maybe Capezio had done the same. Wanting to be on the safe side, I ordered a half size bigger - a 7.5, thinking she'd grow into them if they were too big. When they came, I could NOT believe it. There is NO WAY that someone with a 5.5 inch long foot could wear a size 7.5. Absolutely NO WAY. I'd say that she probably could have fit her foot in a 7.5 back when she was wearing a street size 4. That is a BIG difference. She was so disappointed, and so was I. It would cost almost $6 just to return them, even though they shipped for free and weigh almost nothing, so I have kept them for my younger daughter to grow into. Now I'm trying to find the time to drive 2 hours to the nearest dance store to get her a pair that actually fits since there is no way to tell for sure what size she is based on the size guide provided.
