I have both tan and black. I find the canvas much more comfortable and flexible than leather character shoes. They are sturdy, incredibly lightweight, and well-fitting. I sized up ½ size from street shoe. Particularly love the closure: Elastic straps that snap on at both ends, which is so much easier than adjusting a tiny buckle on the outside of your ankle, which I've always found awkward. The black shoes come with both black and pink elastics. As for working with Dancewear Corner, they were fabulous and got the shoes shipped out quite fast. (I batched them with a pair of 3" heels my daughter needed.)
I have wide feet that are very difficult to fit, so I was quite hesitant to order the shoes because the shipping cost to Los Angeles was $9.25 and would cost at least another $9.25 to return them if they didn't fit. I have been so desperate to find comfortable shoes that I decided to take a chance. I wear a size 7-1/2W and ordered the size M8L. I was ABSOLUTELY THRILLED that they fit and were so comfortable - I give them 10+ stars!!! =)
I already own the black version of this shoe. I got these in hopes of having the same great shoe for a different costume Unfortunately, they are much darker than I expected so I had to return them. :( The shoe in general is very comfortable and I would recommend them.
I live these low healed comfy dance shoes!
My daughter grew out of her shoes a month before recital and had to find a replacement fast. The shoes are comfortable and ran true to size. The elastic straps were a little small for the shoe size (7).
