Like many other reviewers, I ordered a pair of Rockettes online and wound up with shoes that were a bit smaller than I had anticipated. I normally like my shoes small though so I decided to stick them out and I'm happy that I did.

Because of a combination of the small size and the dramatic shape of these shoes I had a few painful days in these shoes but ultimately, I really like them. They do stretch out over time and part of it is just your feet growing used to flexing in the way that the shoe encourages.

Once you get used to them you can climb on nubbins all day long.
