We love our essential pumps, I think that they are a great quality. We did use the size guide, and have found the shoes to be a bit snug. however we will be purchasing these again when my daughter needs a new pair.

My doughter wears the Essential pumps and she loves them (btw, i have Loop pumps and are the best!)! She said that they are soft and hard enough to make “rocks” at the same time. And mother thinks that value is GREAT! smile

Great shoes! The quality is amazing! The leather is soft and they are all around fantastic shoes! Easy to break in without too much issue. Very comfortable to dance.
They lasted an entire dance semester (5 months) before becoming too stretched out to perform in. There is still a break in period but not nearly as bad as I have heard from other dancers. I measured and ordered 1 size down to a 5. Maybe I should have sized down one more and make them last longer?

Please note if you ask us to leave your order somewhere on your property (e.g. in the porch, hide under hedge) so no signature is taken, then you will not be able to claim for a lost parcel in the event of it going missing.

We are happy to comply with your instructions but we do recommend that if you are unable to sign for the parcel that you get it delivered to a friendly neighbour.

If you are not in then a ‘called while you were out’ card will be left.

You can then arrange to get it redelivered to your address or collect from your local post office or sorting office.

Deliveries to Hotels

Hotel deliveries can be difficult due to the busy nature of their receptions desks and the number of hotel staff required to either handle or store the parcel before it arrives safely with the guest.

Due to this we advise that, wherever possible, you do not select a hotel as the delivery address for your order. If you do nominate a hotel please be aware that unfortunately we cannot accept responsibility for the parcel once the parcels tracking shows it has been successfully delivered to a hotel reception.

We also advise that you make the hotel aware in advance that you are expecting a parcel and that you liaise with them directly regarding collecting your parcel after it has arrived at their reception.

Essential Pump Sizing Guide

Essential Pump Sizing Guide

Please measure the length of your foot and refer to the guidelines below for what size to order.

If you require advice on how to do an accurate measurement then please visit our Foot Measuring Page for useful tips and assistance.

This guide is designed for the intermediate dancer. You may want to go a half size larger if you are a beginner or for a smaller size if you are an open dancer.

The measurements given are for the foot length we recommend for each size and DOES NOT indicate the length of the pump as your toes should be slightly curled when first worn.

Please note that this is a guide and does not guarantee the correct fit. For more information on this guide and on fitting pumps correctly then please click here.

To use: Measure your foot and choose the closest size to that measurement. If your foot measurement is between lengths then adjust for your type of foot or preferred fit.
For example, if you have a wide foot, a high instep or are a beginner then go for the size above your foot measurement. If you have a narrow foot or like your pumps very tight to begin with then go for the size below your measurement. You can find some examples here.

Please Note - Every dancer prefers their pumps to fit in a certain way. Some like them extra tight, others with a little room. Combine this with the fact that everyone's feet are unique in terms of width, length, arch type and height and you can see why pump fitting can be difficult. Hence we only offer this sizing chart as a guide rather than a guaranteed fit.
