The shoes are really nice if you are searching for basic leather full sole ballet shoes. Unfortunately, the instructions to buy a number larger than your normal size are wrong. I wear 6uk size and ordered 7L C fitting but they were huge! I sent them back and I am waiting for the refund. Finally, I went to the Bloch shop and ended up buying these but in 5.5 C fitting!! So, my advice if you are 6size go for the 5.5! I would so much like to know it in advance and avoid the disappointment and having to go to the shop..
