Capezio Teknik Ballet Reviews:


I purchased these at the same time that I purchased some very sensible New Balance cross-trainers (yay to Zappos, my first order with them!); while I am quite fond of the New Balance, I am absolutely in love with these little Capezios, and also the idea of being one full size smaller (6) in them, than my street size (7). Nice! I ordered 6D, thinking my feet are slightly wider than normal, but probably would have been better off with the medium width (C) - though the adjustable drawstring helps much with that, tied tautly! I've recently begun using the "New York City Ballet" book by Peter Martins as my primary exercise routine, and these work brilliantly for that (and the adorable look of these shoes prove an inspiration, truly!). Personally, I like the positioning of the elastics, and have not adjusted them like some reviewers have. They're just about perfect - and seem quite durable though they look so delicate, and when they've worn out, I'll surely buy another pair from Zappos. Superb!

A very sexy shoe! I have bought my wife Capezio ballet slippers for years. She loves them and they are sooo hot when worn with straight leg jeans or cut offs. When I was in high school Capezio ballet slippers were the rage - every girl had a pair but black slippers dominated, worn every where. The more worn the better!!! With all the imports of cheap Chinese made plastic knock offs its glad to read these reviews that some women love them too. I hope that they make a come back. Their classic style is timeless and YES they are great for street wear.

Classic traditional ballet slippers - These are for dance class (indoors only) on wood floors or surfaces suitable for dance. They can be used for indoor slippers if you like, (I'd buy regular slippers). They were not made to go outdoors. It is nice that they sew elastics in for you. However, they are a little far forward than I like and was taught to sew them in. Just as Zappos' suggests for dance buy 1 size smaller than street shoes and usual or even narrower width as leather is very soft and stretches easily.

Capezio's Teknik - Beautifully made, fit is terrific. I bought them as slippers/VERY casual shoes, to wear after a long day in hiking boots-very, very nice. I usually wear a 7-medium so, based on prior reviews and what I wanted the shoes for, I ordered them in 6 1/2-wide so they could stretch (a LITTLE) to fit and have a little more leather in contact with the ground. I am very satisfied and will buy them again whenever they wear out.

Always a favorite - I have always loved these for kicking around in - beware, they feel just like bare feet, so don't expect arch support, etc. Used to be that I ordered half a size smaller, but now I must order true to size.
