Ballet shoe sizing

Generally for children’s ballet shoe fittings we recommend 1.5/2 sizes above their outdoor shoe.

We recommend Bloch ballet shoes for a wider foot & Capezio or First Position for a narrower fit.

Tap shoe sizing

Tap shoes fit as outdoor shoe size however for growing room in children if they have been in an outdoor shoe size a while, the next size up is recommended.

Same as above in terms of brands’ fit. Capezio tap shoes suit a narrow foot whereas Bloch tap shoes are ideal for those with a wider foot.
