I had to replace my old pair that had broken. Lyrical sandals are popular with many dancers but few companies sell them. This new pair work fine but aren't as good as my old pair. The fit is a little loose even though I order 1 size smaller. The strap between my front two toes is a bit wide and will take some breaking-in. They seem designed out of heavier leather so are less comfortable but more durable. The sole pad could be a little wider as the outside of my foot palm still rubs the floor. I used them last night for about an hour of intensive dance and they were only a distraction at first as they were breaking-in. Seems the price is a little high, but, it's a product difficult to find. I would have bought at a dance store but even they didn't carry them, except by special order which I just did myself.
For mens, don't order same street size, maybe a half a size small or maybe even one size smaller. Runs big
