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 don't know squat about dance, maybe they are supposed to fit tight for ballet and maybe dancers are used to it,or tape their toes or something. They do seem to be well made, but I dropped mine into the prop box for someone with smaller feet to wear in the next play.
Anyway, if you are NOT a dancer, but for some reason or other you get talked into doing something where you need to wear ballet flats, get these AT LEAST a size larger than you usually wear.
The elastic straps come sewn in.
I wear a size 12 street shoe and find that, between the 12 and 12.5 sizes (both of which I own), the 12 is best for ballet work. I initially ordered a half size larger due to what some of the reviews said. I didn't like the half size larger for the actual ballet work, but I'm going to keep the 12.5 for yoga and other stuff where I don't require such snugness.
The product is good quality, and I'd definitely order them again.
I bought these to trade off with a leather pair I had cut out a space for my toe after the toenail was removed and the doctor wanted it be in the open air as much as possible. A bonus is these can be washed.
I can also cover the toe with gauge, or half of a shoe cover held in place by 3M Corban Wrap, Vetwrap or Dynarex Sensi Wrap. Wrapping just a bit of my foot or all the way up my leg over the shoe.
These are one of the few shoes I can find that are large enough to fit.
I will buy again as house shoes.
