Product Description

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.

Heel Height: Approx. 1'' Tall. Soft, supple, and durable PU upper. 3/4" EVA, standard style wrapped heel with suede top lift - stitched for security to prevent delamination. Full suede outsole. 3/4 shank. Shock-absorbing sponge insole and heel. Strong heel counter for maximum ankle support. Begin with mens street shoe size.

    Shoes seem nice when trying on, but sizing directions by Amazon were not accurate for the wide widths. My "street size" was too small, so I had to re-order the next larger size. Of course Amazon does NOT consider this their mistake, so I was charged $5.00 shipping to exchange them.

    The shoes would have been fine, if I had known they run small. To accomodate any kind of socks, I would get a whole size larger, then I think they would be fine. I had bought Wide, and that seemed ok, it was just the length. They are soft, and suede bottom, 1" heel, that part is just right.

    Well designed shoe. I have bunions and typically wear a 4E shoe, and this 11.5 W shoe was not wide enough.

    I took up ballroom to improve my health and meet people, found a good school. Bought these shoes from Amazon for a good price. Less than what the Capezio web site wants for them, less than what my school would have charged. You wear thin socks so you learn what your foot is doing, it's designed to keep your foot flexible not in a box. This is a dance shoe so your foot stays flexible and can feel the floor, not a hiking boot. I stepped on my teachers foot. I could feel her toe through the sole of the shoe and got off before I hurt her. Nice smooth leather shoe that looks good and is comparable to the men's shoes the instructors and professional dancers wear.14W works for me, I'm 6'3", 337 lbs and on borrowed time, due for a heart attach or stroke. Loosing weight, looking good, dressing well, holding a beautiful woman. Best workout ever!

    A little snug for my foot, but held up well and lasted a year. I was dancing 3-4 times per week, so got plenty of use out of them. Definitely recommended! Recently ordered a pair of Capezio BR116's to replace, if you have a wider foot go with the BR116.

    Ok, I guess, but not as nice as the Dance For Less shoes I kept (I returned these). Dance for Less were real leather and came with a handy felt bag to carry them in. These are synthetic, so you wouldn't get the softness and breathability of leather. And one would think a dance supply company as renown as Capezio would be so thoughtful as to supply a bag as well.

    It is a good shoe for dancing, but when they say "Wide", it is about a "C" width verses a "D or E" widith.
