I can't find ballet shoes anywhere. It looks like I am going to have to buy them online, but the sizes seem to be different from regular shoes. DD wears a 11 to 13 in little girls. What size do I need to buy in these funky sizes?

Ballet shoes are typically 1 1/2 - 2 sizes larger than regular shoes which means you need to choose a sz. smaller than your normal. They should fit pretty snug BUT when buying them for a child I wouldn't go quite as small as I would for an adult ... you need to allow a little room to grow ... so 1 1/2 sizes should be adequate.

This is not a standard rule though and each brand may be a little different. I would suggest finding the shoes you plan to order and then do a search on that brand's sizing chart just to make sure.

I ordered some off of Amazon. I finally found a company who sold her size. It was tricky finding shoes in the bigger toddler, but not quite girls shoes.

I totally understand ... having a 4 yr. old who wears a 7.5 shoe is a pita ... I can never find ones that look like and feel like big kid shoes.

Walmart had them too along with much cheaper dance tights.

Sometimes dance studios will also sell the shoes used.
