I'm a beginner at tap and I initially bought the Bloch Women's Tap-Flex Tap Shoe in my street size (5.5M). It was a little tight, so I ordered the Capezio Women's Flex Master Tap shoe in a size 6. Though both brands fit well, I found that I prefer the construction of the Bloch and returned the Capezio. Both are nice shoes and sound great. Here's a comparison:
Bloch Tap-Flex: - Shaped more like an Oxford, wider at the ball and tapering toward the toes - Soft leather upper. The flex sole is stiffer out of the box than the Capezio. A couple of weeks and the flexibility has improved while still providing support. - There is no stitching around the support at the back of the shoe in the Achilles tendon area. The edge of the support caused some friction but nothing a pair of socks will not mask. - Liked the short laces. Even if they come undone they are not a trip hazard
Capezio Flex master: - Shape is different. It looks and feels somewhat...
I'm a 65 year old woman taking on tap dance classes for first time in 58 years. I have well-earned foot problems, I expected the worst when going in to this challenge but I put these shoes on and started a vigorous class. These shoes are divine. I needed to put orthotics in for my arches but that solved my personal mechanical foot problem. I bought two pair, another from a name brand, all for comparison. This shoe won, hands down. No pun intended. These passed a strident litmus test.
Soooo comfortable and supportive. I love this tap shoe. I have wide feet and ordered the medium, and thankfully the medium actually runs wide. It worked out perfectly for me. I also ordered a full size larger than my street shoe, and the shoes are a little bit too big. But they work just fine without socks. Next time I'll go up only a half size bigger instead.
