I love my new shoes, and so far they are holding up well. IDS has such a great reputation I'm confident that my shoes will last a long time if I treat them well. But I really get nervous about ordering shoes online when I can't see them in person to try them on first (I'm in eastern US), and I think I just got lucky. If return shipping were free, I would have bought 3-4 pairs to try different sizes and styles to make sure I got what I wanted, then sent back the extras. However, return shipping is NOT free, so I gambled that my research on sizing & styles would be enough. My street shoes are US size 9 to 9.5, and I ordered my IDS Latin sandals in US size 8.5 (standard IDS everything: height, heel style, etc.). They fit beautifully, according to my dance instructor. One really nice thing is they came MUCH sooner than expected! I will probably buy from IDS again, since now I also need a pair of standard/smooth shoes in addition to my open-toed Latin dance shoes.

I have purchased multiple pairs of shoes from your company and have been very impressed with your personnel and their service and help. My only suggestion is to allow a little longer return period for shoes purchased. I recently purchased a pair of ladies dance shoes for my dance instructor, as a Christmas gift. I purchased the shoes in early December to make sure they would arrive in time for me to give them to her before Christmas. They arrived super fast and most of the allowing return period will be gone before I give them to her. The shoe size is correct but she might want a wider fit or something different, a woman's prerogative. That leaves me with an extremely short time frame to return the shoes (if needed) to exchange them. Anyway, I will still continue buying your shoes, when needed. Thanks. Ken Dame

I recently ordered shoes per my dance instructors request through your website. They came a bit too big although I followed the websites guidelines in sizing. As you know, good shoes are expensive!
I am sad that I had to pay $25+ not only to have them shipped to me but also an additional $25 to send them back for an exchange! I sure hope I don't have to pay for the right size to come back to me! That would be over $75 in shipping! I bought shoes on sale for a reason so this really bums me out!!!!

This is the second pair of shoes I have ordered in the Roxy style. They fit better than the first pair, despite being the same size (I had to stretch the others a bit to make them a bit more comfy). I loved the padded sole and it has made a real difference to how my feet feel at the end of a three hour lesson and practice session. The padding makes all the difference. I love it! I got the black ones before and this time got the 'art attack' design. I love the fact that I can choose a heel like the ones on my best dance shoes, so that I don't notice the difference so much when I have to wear my best shoes. That has really helped too. They look great, they fit great and they save my feet from hurting at the end of the night. I have nothing bad to say about them. It would be great if there were a wider choice of fabrics to choose from for them though. Any thoughts on offering more options guys? I'll keep an eye out!

Custom made shoes delivered to Australia in one week - absolutely can’t get better than that! Shoes are incredibly comfortable even though it was a new style and brand for me.

Love the shoes! Ordered red bottoms and narrow for a better fit. Only thing I would change is the height of the Mia strap across the toes was taller than I was expecting - since I have a slim foot, I had hoped the narrow sizing would be sufficient. The width was great but I have about a centimeter gap from the top of my foot to the fabric. Wish it was more snug. Something to consider.

See letter Dec 13, 2019. I have been ordering Flavia dance shoes for years and absolutely love them; hence I do not order any other brand or style. I was able to wear them for hours right out of the box and never experienced blisters or pain on my feet.
This last pair is different. I order same style and size and after wearing them only one hour last night, I have multiple blisters (both heels and over great toes).
The response from company: "the shoes are more padded now, as we work with a specialist to add extra padding to our shoes in all the correct pressure points" It didn't work for my feet!

Needed shoes delivering in time for a ball, contacted customer services who replied promptly and got shoes processed in time. Cinderella did go to the ball.

My wide-fitting black leather Gibson shoes are beautifully made but a little smaller than the wide street shoes of the same size that I have bought in different styles from Clarke's for many decades.
