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.

These shoes are unique. I was looking for a pair ballet slippers when I came across them. They are more substantial and fit nice and snug. Read morePublished 5 days ago by Robin
Great little shoe for pilates, yoga, and knocking around the house. You could put separate insoles in to give a more support and cushioning.Published 12 days ago by Margaret
A comfortable, durable dance sneaker. I danced in these shoes on city street pavement and they really held up well.Published 28 days ago by KKO
The soles wore out because I wore them so much--they are sooooooo perfectly fit and sooooooo comfortable. Felt like I wasn't wearing shoes at all. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Karen
These are light and portable, perfect to have on hand for light use. However they are flimsy and will not hold up to heavy use, the sole liner will come unglued and slide around... Read morePublished 2 months ago by Leslie Anderson
So glad I bought these shoes. They are more like slippers with a bottom. They make my Zumba class much more enjoyable than when I was wearing tennis shoes. Read morePublished 2 months ago by JP
There isn't any arch support, but these were fine for zumba and similar dance classes.Published 3 months ago by YourNameHere
