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 really are so cute, that's why I went ahead and ordered them anyway eventhough there was a bad review left about them. I thought I could handle them, but I was very, very wrong. These shoes are extremely narrow at the toe hole, so even if the width is good for you, your toes will be crying withing a few minutes-I just tried mine on for a minute or two and I couldn't walk across my living room (and I have a small living room!). Fight the urge to order these adorable shoes, I guess unless you have teeny, tiny cinderella toes.

    I bought these shoes for salsa dancing. These were my socond pair of social dance shoes. I was expecting Capezio to be a good brand since they make other dance shoes, but I was very disappointed. I measured the heel and it's 3 inches not 2.5. The first time I wore these shoes they gave blisters on my large toes. To solve the blister problem I had to buy Dr. Scholl's anti-rub strips. Also, after dancing in them the balls of my feet are in pain and my middle toes get numb.

    I have given up with these shoes. after talking to other women in the class, I did a litte more research and found other social dance shoes that are suppposed to be better for you foot's anatomy. I just order a pair of Fantasy dance shoes from souldancerusa.com.

    I ordered these shoes for social dancing and salsa classes. I have a hard to fit wide foot and so ordered the wide shoes being skeptical but hopeful at the same time knowing I could return them if needed . I got the shoes and they did not disappoint! I love them! They fit beautifully and are very comfortable. The quick snap feature on the buckle is a nice bonus! I'm glad I took the chance.

    These shoes are actually over 3" tall! Close to 3.5"! I ordered a half size larger than I usually take and they were still a good size and a half too short! My toes didn't just go to the end- my toes weren't even on the shoe! Most dance shoes have decent area in the forefoot, but the toe opening is super narrow too- just made completely wrong. I'm going back to Very Fine for my professional dance shoes.

    I was afraid that the clasp would not hold during the twirls and dancing, but they were perfect and never unhooked once. They are comfortable and stylish. I might even be able to wear these out to a night out on the town. My size runs between 7 1/2 and 8, but I had to buy a half size bigger because I have longer toes. I would recommend these to anyone.

    Ok these are tight across the big toe. Hopefully, I can break these shoes in. I am a size 11.5 so ordered a 12. Mayve I should have gone a whole shoe size up with the 12.5. The shoes fits just right but the toes is right on the edge. That may start to irritate me after dancing for a while.

    This is my first pair of social dance shoes. I selected this shoe because of the brand , style and price. However, I have to admit I'm a bit disappointed. It's a nice shoe but there are fit issues. I generally wear 7-1/2 M so I bought them 1/2 size larger to give myself a little more room for comfort. I realize now I should've purchased them a whole size larger in wide width. The right shoe fits perfectly. The left is tight and cuts my big toe. Thinking maybe they just needed to be "broken in" I walked around in them for a couple days before I wore them to class. Big mistake. I could tell immediately that there wasn't enough padding in the shoe. And by the end of class, the balls of my feet were killing me and the left shoe blistered my big toe. I'm going to purchase anti-rub strips and additional padding to hopefully resolve these issues. If that doesn't work, I'll have to chalk this up as a loss!

    So I ordered this one in 6.5 since people said that I needed like a whole size smaller. Although they fit, they started to feel really tight. Had to give them to a friend and ordered a 7. they fit really well. I like tight shoes because it feels better when I dance so this was the perfect match. I recommend people to bye their actual street size and a half size smaller and try them on and return the other one.
