General consensus, whether it's online or at the barre, seems to be that the Sansha Pro split sole ballet slippers are the favourites of most dancers. I decided to give them a try - and found out that they truly held up to their reputation, so long as size is pre-determined.
I would recommend that a shoe 1.5 sizes larger than the dancer's street shoes be selected. If between sizes, order one size up and shrink in the washing machine and dryer if necessary.
Following other recommendations to size 2 sizes up from street size, I ordered a 12 M. For reference, I am a size 10 women's with a very narrow ankle. I found the size I ordered to fit quite loosely, especially through the arch and heel. Adjusting the drawstring to tighten the shoe only caused the back of the slipper to rub against the back of my heel, causing a very minor blister. However, considering that the product is made out of a canvas material, I would try shrinking these shoes with hot water and a hot...
I bought these in a 15W for my boyfriend's halloween costume. They fit his feet really well (he is a 10.5 in vans normally, I used the chart and ordered a size up.) They seem to be made of good sturdy materials, both the textile and leather seemed quality, not flimsy. My only issue with them was the elastic straps that were meant to go across the top! On both of the shoes, they were only attached at the back, by the heel! The elastic didn't criss cross over to the other side like it shows in the picture. I thought it might be on purpose, but the elastic's loose edge was a straight cut that was fraying a bit, which made it look like it was cut with scissors. Weird that it happened to both elastics on both shoes. Luckily I can sew so I just reattached the strips and hid the extra stitching, but if someone else got these, they'd probably be really unhappy.
I travel and fly a LOT. I can't live without ballet slippers. I pack them in my carry on for the plane (that's not water on the bathroom floor, ya'll) for the long-haul flights, and I have a separate pair that I put in my luggage for the hotel. They are the perfect hotel shoe, I seriously have to have them. I also love the black ones because they don't show dirt. I also throw them right in the washing machine with the rest of my stuff when I get home. These ones are perfect -- I have bought the Sansha brand before, I do find that they run a little small and for these purposes I order up a size. Definitely worth the money!!!
