Capezio

Capezio Logo
Salvatore Capezio was born in 1871 in Muro Lucano, Italy. Uninterested in following in his father’s footsteps as a construction engineer, he became an artist of his own right, a cobbler. In 1887, at the age of 17, he opened his shop on Broadway and 39th Street, diagonally across from the old Metropolitan Opera House in New York City. Soon, the shop became a meeting place for dancers who would stop by to discuss their needs and to get a pair of his shoes. As Capezio’s popularity grew, dancers from around the world made it a point to visit him and purchase his shoes.

The innovation of the products that Salvatore Capezio created and the camaraderie he shared with the dancers molded the direction that his company would follow. In this image, the Capezio brand was established to promote and recognize ongoing achievements and participation in dance.

Capezio products remain in the forefront in quality and in technological advances with innovations like the split-sole, the stretch-insert, the Dansneaker® and the Tapsneaker. Capezio believes that their success is dependent upon the individual commitment of each customer to continually set new standards of creativity and performance, while preserving a reputation for dependability and distinction. Capezio pledges their support and dedication to the advancement of dance, theater and recreation in communities worldwide.

Unfortunately, these run too small. We had to go with size 14 for proper fit.

My daughter usually wears a size 9. After reading the reviews, I decided to go with the size 10 and they were perfect. Thanks!

I wear a 10.5 mens, ordered 11.5 and it was a bit too short. Reordered a 12 and it was just right. The B width is a bit narrow but the shoe still fits well and is comfortable. Bought these because training shoes I was using were too “sticky” for Zumba and Cardio (had to use talc on soles). These shoe have a nice easy grip on wood gym floors but rotate/spin easily. Needed that specifically because of knee replacement. Great value.

Lovely dance shoe. Too bad the maker is not making them “true” to size. These run very narrow, and a med width will not fit A lot of people.

Only the wide was in stock so maybe that is why it was not comfortable in the tie area on top of my foot. You can't really see in the photo, but there is an elastic under the ties. You can adjust the ties but then the elastic bunches if you need to tie it tighter than the elastic length.

Ordered 10.5M for my barely 10+ narrow feet. Reminded me of how hard it was to find dance shoes when I was a girl. Wonderful shoe, always well made, but the toe box was wide (nor surprising) and too short (very surprising, since I sized up).

I bought these to tuck in my purse when I go to my son's wedding. If the heels I'll wear start pinching when I dance, I'll slip these on and dance all night! I was glad to find them so conveniently- and I didn't even have to sew on the elastic band- it's already on!

Perfect shoe for my daughters needs, however we bought and returned several sizes before finding the right fit! She wears a street size 7M, but needed an 8.5W in this shoe.

Bought these for my daughter for color guard. She has a very narrow foot and wears a 9&1/2 Nike tennis shoe. Ordered a different brand in a 9.5 and she was swimming in them......tried these since most people said they run small, hoping they would be narrow. Ordered a 8.5, 9, 9.5 and we’re keeping the 9.5.

I ordered a whole size up from my normal size of 9.5 and the 10.5 worked fine. I returned them becuase the heel was 1/2 inch higher than I thought.

I ordered a half-size up and the fit was fine. The canvas upper did not appeal to me - not only did it make my feet look huge (not that anyone buys dance sneakers because they look good!) but I thought the cloth surface would quickly get dusty and show dirt a lot.

The shoe has a cheap, plastic feel to it. The wide size is wide enough at the toe, but it is still tight around the top opening of the shoes.

Yes, I'd agree that these shoes are a half size smaller so one needs to size up. Overall, it's a good, classic dance shoe but runs narrow even when I ordered the wide size.

Shoes look great but sadly run really narrow. I wear a size 10 in all my boots but barely got foot in these, even with the laces undone. Sadly I have to return them.

These shoes are cute. However, the fit at the forefoot was too tight. The length is fine. I ordered 6 wide, which matches my street shoe size. I need a pair of dancing shoes for ballroom and swing, and all my shoes are non skid so I need something that will rotate me without friction. If these shoes had more square forefoot, I think I would have kept them. I am returning because the shape of the forefoot squeezes my toes. However, if your toes are the right shape, these shoes would be fine.

Bought these for adult ballet class and they are too small! Too bad I wore them already.. my big toe and second toe was rubbing against the front. Uncomfortable but I’m stuck with them. For reference, I typically wear a size 10 in UGGs and Birkenstocks and a 11 in Nike’s and Converse

My daughter wears a youth size 3 and has narrow feet/heels. I believe a youth size 3 is equivalent to a womens 5. Capezio recommends sizing up one size from street shoe size and after reading all the reviews, I ordered a size 6B (medium). She slipped them on easily. In fact, I think a 5.5 probably would have fit better. We're keeping the 6 because they aren't so big that they'll slip off, but she has growing room.

I ordered a half size up but should have listened to other reviewers who said to go up a full size. Otherwise they felt great. I will be stretching these manually to make them more comfortable.

These are my second pair of dance sneakers and they are very comfortable. I'm glad I ordered a whole size bigger, because they run small and are tapered at the toe. Nice support for arches.
