After decades of looking for the perfect shoe, I have found it. I would order these by the dozen if I had to.
- Fit: small
Comfortable, basic, hip, nice quality. Practically all I wear except for the occasional Mephisto sandal or Frye boot.
Give me every colour!
Bloch has a ballet shoe background and it shows. These flats pamper the feet with strategic cushioning. Fit beautifully and very comfortable. The irony for me is that these Australian shoes aren't readily available in Australia and I have to order them from halfway around the world. Wish I could afford the whole range!

These are absolutely great shoes! I ordered 12, as I usually wear 42 and it fits. They are stylish and match with most of my clothes. Probably the softest shoes I've ever had. Love the color, however, it's more like mint green then it seems in the picture.

Fit could be better
The shoe is okay, but the fit could be much better. I listened to the Fit Tips and ordered a full size larger. That was a mistake. Also, the shoe is NOT narrow... and I'm not sure why it's categorized that way on the site. Thank goodness there's elastic to hold it on my foot! It actually is really cute from the side and it's comfortable. So I'm keeping it.
bought a 43 and they still feel tight (i usually wear a 12) hoping they break in nicely. the color is amazing (i bought the purple)
Sizes run very small
LOVE these shoes, however, they are uncomfortable becuase they are too small. I normally wear a 10 or 11 depending on the brand, with these shoes I would order a 12 next time. I can only squeeze my feet into them for about 45 min until they hurt too much and i have to take them off. They are real leather so hopefully they will stretch with time.
A summer romance of a shoe
I ordered the blue lagoon, which is a beautiful colour, and was able to wear them straight out of the box - the leather is fantastically soft and the elastic shaped it to my foot perfectly. Since I spent my formative years in men's shoes I even loved the pink box and the little tulle bag the shoes came in! I'm a size 12 but ordered the 14 because 44 is my European size - it was a perfect fit so that's worth bearing in mind. There is a little padding in the shoe but not much - I could wear it to work but only because I'm not on my feet a lot. The leather soles are also quite thin so I imagine they might wear out quickly, and I would NEVER wear these in the wet. But I sure will enjoy them while they last.

I use these shoes for day to day wear, but they can easily double as a nice flat to wear with something a bit more dressy. They are very comfortable, and do not rub or cut into my feet at all. I bought the yellow and it is a nice, bright colour that pops.

While I say it's a size too small that's only b/c I followed the recommendation to order a full size up - which I did and the fit is perfect. So normally I wear a 13 (I can get away with sandals and flip flops at a 12) and I ordered a 14, which fits great. I've worn them twice and they scuffed up pretty badly on the bottom - but it's probably just cosmetic. I like the look and feel of them and would consider getting another pair in a different color.
Perfect ballet flat
I've been searching high and low for the perfect ballet flat and I'm so glad I finally found it. These shoes are just perfect once you get the right size. Do read the fit tip - they run small! I actually went up two full sizes in this shoe. They are comfortable from the get-go. It only took me one day of normal wear to get them completely broken in. The leather is soft but not at all flimsy - very high quality. They conform to your feet well and the cushy heel pad is a very nice touch that adds a lot of comfort. The elastic on the back doesn't pinch my heel. They look really nice on, a classic shape that goes with everything.

Very comfortable, supple leather, perfect fit. I should have gotten these in all the other colors when they were available.

These were a love at first sight affair. I had to spray the inside with water on the first wear but they are so well made with quality leather that I lasted the whole day without crying, and I am a wimp folks! I can't say enough good things about them, except that now I want accent pieces in the same color.

These shoes are incredibly well made - on the level of a designer label like Manolo Blahnik. I ordered several pairs of ballet flats at the same time, and the quality of this is so above and beyond the others (which were FS/NY and Barefoot Tess brand). These shoes have leather soles, no exposed stitching, no rough patches. The only downside is they were a touch small, my big toe's nail rubbed inside. I think I'll exchange them for the next size up (43) and I normally wear an 11.

Make sure you get them re-soled
These are fantastic ballet flats because they're so comfortable and you don't even need to wear them in, but I strongly recommend getting more durable soles put on them before you even start wearing them because the soles are not durable at all and if you don't get them re-soled the toes get scuffed very quickly and the soles get holes in them. They're worth paying to have extra durability though because the leather is so soft and gorgeous and they're so comfortable from the first wear (usually it takes me a long time to wear in shoes because I get blisters easily).

love these. everything that is advertised--gorgeous leather, great fit, perfect flat. toe is not too pointy, but not too round. i just ordered two more colors. my size was perfect, but they hug your feet. i think you could order up a size if they are sold out of your size, or if your feet are slightly big for their size.

Can shoes get any better?
Soft leather, gorgeous colour, cute style, total comfort. I love them.They're not kidding about the size: order at least a size up.

The best ballet flats, ever.
These ballet flats are beautifully made and long-wearing. They are the third pair I have bought (now having Red, Coral and Luxury in Atmosphere and White). There are none better.

Fantastic- but follow the European sizes
Sizes are a bit misleading -- I wear a US 12 but a European 44. Ordered a 44/14 and the sizing is perfect. A pleasure from the moment you open the box (they come in an adorable pink tulle bag). These are just gorgeous -- rich, supersoft leather, fully lined in suede, and with a surprising amount of cushioning for such a flat shoe. They are cut just low enough without showing too much toe. Highly recommend -- I'll probably get a second pair myself.

Cute, but VERY small
These shoes are beautiful and the color of the violet is exactly as pictured. I usually wear at 11.5/12 and the 13 is too small. I think the 14 will be perfect, but beware that it's more like 2 sizes up.

Love these shoes
These shoes are great! They're very comfortable, durable and stylish. They also make my feet look smaller, even at a size 14!
GJ would recommend this product to a friend.
These shoes were a full size too small. They also didn't feel right, perhaps because they are too flat.
The perfect ballerina flat
These shoes are the superstars in my shoe collection. I have 3 pairs to date (in different colours) and hope they remain in stock as I don't see a reason to search for something else when I've found perfection.I find these shoes true to size and they are the first shoes I have ever bought that I can wear the first time and not suffer from blisters or rubbing.They look and feel luxurious and even with constant wear are still in excellent condition. While there is a bit of stretch after wearing them for some months, the shoe still hugs my foot and they don't slip off my foot at all.

Such a great shoe! A perfect, simple round toe flat shoe. The color is more a mix of a bright yellow/lime than the photo - but it's a fun color and gives your outfit a nice pop of color! Will be buying more in the future for sure!

I bought the White with Black Cap toes last year and quickly followed it with the red and hoped it would come in black. I just got the black ballet slipper and I love the fit; I wear a size 13 and it fit true to size. The soles are a bit slippery as they are leather, but the heel is really durable. I am planning to put a rubber half-sole for traction and to reduce wear. I may buy the shoe in the camel.
