I wear a size 9 in running shoes. After trying size 9, I ended up returning for a size 10.

I love my zumba shoes! However, I originally purchased from a retail store and thought I was buying US size 9.5 and they sold me UK size 9.5. So, when I later ordered a pair online I ordered the wrong size - so now have to return the US 9.5 that are too small. Ugh!

Haven't had much use yet, but feel great. I ordered half-size up from usual size as suggested.
