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.

I bought this shoes for my fiancé so he couldn't complain about not having the right shoes for dancing. He didn't complain when we took wedding dance classes.Published 3 days ago by Ess
I really like this shoe.
My one piece of advice is to order slightly large, someone left a review detailing the exact fitting and their advice was quite helpful.
Definitely too small. How hard is it to make the shoes the same size as they claim to be? Why if I wear a 10.5 do I have to guess and order a size up or something? Seriously?Published 1 month ago by Lost in TN
The quality is so good and you can wear at least 1 year before it gets completely worn, supposed you have weekly lessons and practice all year along. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Andy
The leather sole used to be stitched on. On this shoe it was not. Therefore it peels off after a while. That's why the stitching was good. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Joshua B. Moses
These size small, as has been noted by other reviewers here. Because of that I bought a full size larger than I'd normally get, and the result was just right. Read morePublished 1 month ago by W. C. Gawne
