Capezio's professional split-sole ballet slipper features lightweight, extra soft leather developed exclusively for this shoe with elastic drawstrings. This is one of the finest soft ballet shoes that Capezio offers. Single elastic included.
My daughter has always worn this brand and style. They wear well, are good quality and fit her studio requirements. My only "con" would be that the ballet pink color is not pink. It's closer to a very muted rose/beige.

Purchased for someone who wears street size 6 . Bought it in size 7M. The M width is really for narrow feet. Length is good if you buy 1 size up from street size. Great shoe for beginners. Lasts forever.
I think these are actually quite ugly. The heel slips off of my foot and when not on releve, they just look so, weird! They just don't seem to flatter my foot very well for some reason. The color is a dusty rose, not really a pink. The drawstring is made out of a slippery type material and they do come undone. It has a full sole on the inside and it does bunch up in the arch for me. Just not pretty. I can't say much for durability and working with them, because I just can't stand to wear them!
These are great shoes for barre and jumping. Turning is sometimes a problem on wood, but they work great on marley. When not on releve however, they look dull, and if you try to dance without the elastics, they fall off easily. But you can feel the floor the most out of pretty much any other shoe.
