Good value for young dancers

Date:January 14, 2013
Pros: value, durable
Cons: flimsy laces come loose too easily!
My 5 year old has danced for 2 years and these are our go-to shoes for her classes. They are comfortable and durable. They even lasted as hand me downs for baby sister to play ballet dancer in. Now that baby sister is old enough to join in ballet classes as well I am returning to buy her own shoes from Payless and the same brand. Good value, pretty color, and durable. My major problem is the laces. They are always coming undone, as others have reviewed - they come loose even after double knotting, so I just got them off. I can't stand retying them over and over again. But thats just me - perhaps a dollop of clear nail polish might keep them secure? Either way they aren't so loose that they fall off or come loose so we continue with these shoes.

Terrible

Date:December 14, 2013
Pros: not too pricey
Cons: uncomfortable, ugly, bad quality
I bought these to wear for my performance at church because i didnt want to destroy my good Capezio shoes on the carpet. These shoes are full sole, which do not look good when you point your feet, and they bunch up too. And, when you tighten them to stay on your feet, it pinches your ankle and is VERY uncomfortable.

Sizing

Date:June 27, 2013
These shoes are great! The only issue I had is with the sizing. The website does advise to go down a full size from your street shoes. I ordered my girls these shoes in their street shoe size and they were SUPER TIGHT! I have researched online and sites advise to go up to 2 sizes bigger than your street size for a comfortable fit.

Best Value and Quality

Date:January 6, 2012
Pros: true to size, durablility, look like expensive brands
Cons: laces won't stay tied (just tuck in)
My girls ages 2 and 5 have worn these ballet shoes. My 5 year old has had 2 pairs now (1 for each year of dancing.).
Sizes....ballet shoes can fit different than regular shoes. Right now she is wearing the same size as her actual shoe size. I am ordering her 3rd pair today.
The laces don't like to stayed tied (i think this is true of all brands) We just tuck them in and they look just perfect. (Even double knots come undone).

Great slippers

Date:July 23, 2011
Pros: comfortable
Cons: laces were a pain in the butt
My 6 year old daughter has done ballet for a year now and it wasn't until the end of the year that we had to purchase another pair. The leather stretched a bit as her feet grew which was nice. She wore these at home as well and danced in them all the time. The soles had to be super glued several times due to wear and tear and even the inside was glued as well. However, the shoes were still in great condition. And I machine washed them and air dyed them several times with no problems. Oh and we cut off the laces. they are a pain and there's no need for them.

Ballet shoe

Date:April 1, 2011
Pros: ab quality
Cons: not a split sole
This would actually be a great shoe IF there was a split leather sole on the bottom instead of the the solid sole. Dance instructors want the dancers to have a split sole as it is easier to flex and point the foot. Her dance academy does not allow the solid sole shoes. It is a shame because AB has such high standards. I know there is an AB split sole shoe out there. Wish you could carry the other shoe. The only reason I rated this shoe as I did was because she cannot wear it at her dance studio. The shoe is AB quality just not a split sole,

EXCELLENT VALUE

Date:September 29, 2010
Cons: we changed to white - these only in blk patent
These held up better than the previous brand we had that cost twice as much! They've stayed in perfect condition. Love them! BUY ONE SIZE LARGER THAN YOUR CHILD'S NORMAL SHOE SIZE
