This jazz boot from Capezio hugs the foot with comfortable elastic instead of laces. The fit is smooth and secure, producing an unbroken line. Soft, supple leather and split-sole construction create great flexibility and a beautiful arch. Built with PowerPointe Construction - a scooped arch construction that eliminates excess material and enhances a dancer's performance. The pattern change enhances the look and the feel of this ankle boot, creating a clean line and a high performance tool. Soft, supple and durable leather upper features folded edges for a cleaner, more polished look. The footbed features a split design to allow the shoe to work with the dancer while minimizing the amount of material inside of the shoe. Rubber forepart and heel is connected with stretch neoprene that hugs and caresses the arch. Available with a non-marking injected PVC heel that provides longer wear, more comfort and stability. The heel also features a raked breast that virtually disappears into the arch during pointe. The contoured, smaller EVA sole patch is designed to better replicate the ball of the foot, providing superior protection and the most articulation.
