Capezio's "Mix-Lo" Jazz shoe features a full grain leather upper with power span inserts, power span is a poly spandex blend that is lightweight and breathable and hugs the foot providing a comfortable and high functional shoe. The soft elastic topline is comfortable and allows the shoe to articulate with the foot during extension and flexion. Other features include a padded counter for Achilles comfort, padded insole with non-slip socklining, non-slip heel counter, poly cotton laces, brushed microfiber lining for comfort and moisture absorption. This shoe also has an EVA sole and heel and an elasticized shank area for further articulation.
These are amazing. I have used many jazz shoes before this, lace-up and slip on, but these are by far the best. They make my arch look great, my turns are comfy and require a lot less thought than with other, slipperier shoes. Ugh. So perfect. They're a little less durable than some; after a month of four classes a week, they begin to look used. With some other shoes this isn't as noticeable. But honestly, I've had them for a year now and I'm still on one pair. Love them. Buy them.
