    The shoe itself is fine, the problem is the heel. It is completely uncovered wood-looking material with a nail in the middle. Ballroom dancers know that turns are done on both the ball of the foot AND the heel. An uncovered heel is slippery and the nailhead will ruin a ballroom floor. In my case one of the heels has the nail in in a slight angle-the nailhead is slightly offset making it protrude just enough to scratch the floor. I won’t bother to return the shoes–otherwise they are fine–I will hammer in the nail a bit more and take the shoes to the cobbler and have him put suede over the heels -which is what Capezio should have done in the first place.

    After 3 pairs in the last 3 years for middle school choir my daughter broke her shoe with 2 shows left. She was not looking forward to having to break in a new pair when she was never going to need them again (high school uses higher heels). These were perfect. She said they felt like they were worn in straight from the box. Also we didn’t notice that this had a suede bottom but makes them quieter and less slippery than the leather on the other pairs she’s had. I didn’t know I was buying a different shoe (wasn’t paying attention to anything other than what it looked like) would definitely recommend these to anyone Read more

    They fit true to size. I usually wear a 9.5 and the 9.5 feel great. They kind of look like a pair of black ballet slippers with a heel on them, the toe is a little more rounded than I was expecting (but that also means more room in the toe area which is nice). The heel is strangely lacking suede and you can see nails (like other reviews mentioned.) They bulge out a lot on the inner side when I flex my foot. There is almost no support under the arch. They are nice and light and a pretty black matte color. I bought these for swing dancing lessons. I think they will work well, I just hope they hold up well, I’m eying the thin strap warily that is absolutely needed to keep these on. Read more

    I ordered both the Capezio Women’s Suede Sole Jr. Footlight and the Capezio Women’s Jr. Footlight Character. Both models fit me like the description from Capezio predicted (one like street shoe size, the other half a size up). I normally wear a 7.5. Luckily, I got free returns so that I could order several sizes and I did not have to rely on the review only, but I would recommend to order several sizes when you are unsure like me. The shoe is quite narrow, which I liked because I have slim feet. Maybe that is why some people find it smaller than street shoe size or maybe the deviation from street shoe size is larger when you go up in size. One issue that I had with all four pairs of Capezio shoes that I ordered is that the heel seems to be at a slightly different angle than the front part of the shoe. So when I had my toes/the ball of the foot on the ground, the back part of the heel does not touch the ground. When I have the weight on the heels, the toes/ball of the feet do not touch the ground – which feels very unstable. Maybe this is because these shoes must also work for tap dancing (they have a hole in the heel so that you can put a tap heel on it). I hope that the heel will not break because of the uneven weight distribution. The Suede sole is nice, good for (ballroom) dancing probably. I couldn’t keep this pair because the good size was not available and kept the Capezio Women’s Jr. Footlight Character instead. Both are comfortable. Read more

    I am very disappointed. I was headed to a dance festival and couldn’t wait to have real dance shoes. The shoe doesn’t fit right at all. Too much room in back, yet foot slides forward and toes are squished. So initially when putting the shoe on it appears that it’s too large because of the spacing and back. Yet, after wearing them I had to take them off because they hurt my toes. Now that I’ve worn them though I’m unable to return them. Something’s wrong with the style or the way the shoe fits.

    The shoes looked good, my daughter wanted comfortable character/dance shoes in tan, and she prefers Capezio. The first pair lasted 3 practices and the heel detached from the shoe. She was distressed as this was one week before open. Amazon handled the return with aplomb and efficiency,as always, and the new shoes seem to be holding up better, but time will tell. Maybe just poor quality control, but I expect better from Capezio. Read more

    The product claims to fit street shoe size. It definitely does not. Just like another reviewer says, you should order a half size up. I ordered it one day shipping with Amazon Prime and was excited to get it in time for my next dance class, but was very disappointed that the item did not fit as described. I’ve had it for less than 5 minutes and already have it boxed up for a return. While if it fit correctly it seems like it would be comfortable, the construction looks very flimsy and cheap.

    The fit in bare feet is slightly loose, so when I use nylon or cotton pedis it’s just right. I dance Argentine tango, not the dancing with the Stars type. This is my first time using a suede sole shoe and I will never go back to leather. The suede makes it easier to cross my feet and turn while my balance feels solid. I preferred the shorter heel Don’t wear these shoes on any surface except a proper wood dance floor or it will ruin the smooth suede sole. Read more
