The stitched "T-strap" design by Capezio has a leather upper, 2" wrapped leather heel and scored leather sole. It has a tapered vamp, suede sock lining and heel counter, and arch cushion. Excellent character or tap shoe. 2" heel
I was looking for a nude character shoe and love this brand, so when I saw that they only had the 2" heel available in the t-strap, I decided to order these instead of the traditional character shoes in a 1 1/2" heel (the 2" only come in black and caramel). I ordered my shoes in my street shoe size and the sizing was great! Don't order to your regular high heel size.
I bought two pairs (put taps on one) to take with me to the Radio City Rockette Summer Intensive. I did get some pretty brutal blisters on the back of my heels, but overall the shoes were incredibly comfortable. I normally wear an 8 in street shoes, but the 9 was a perfect fit. I would definitely recommend getting the soles rubberized too, because they are seriously slippery on the bottom. Altogether, these shoes are fantastic! Once they are broken in, the leather literally conforms to your feet!
I LOVE these shoes! They are my all time fave dance shoes. They're so comfortable. I'm an actress/dancer/singer and have worn the same pair for around five shows. They totally last and are totally perfect for the stage!
The shoe's leather upper is very soft and forms to your foot. Shoe size runs one whole size larger than street size. Bottom of heels wore through to nail after 32 wearings and heels became loose. Really shows off the legs!
We ordered these shoes by the sizing they suggest, same as street. It is wrong and I am not happy I now have to pay an extra $5.95 for shipping! My daughter is between a 6 and 6 1/2, we ordered a size 7 to give her room to grow. They were too small! It seems she may need an 8. Way different than street size!
