Capezio's best-selling canvas ballet shoe allows you to glide freely across the studio floor. This slip-on ballet shoe features high-quality canvas material with stretch construction and a barely-there feel. The "Hanami" design eliminates bulk in the arch, provides ultimate protection for the metatarsal, and creates the flattest platform to pivot on. Its patented technology also offers a seamless diamond gusset in the arch of the shoe, no center stitched line to interfere with pointing and flexing, and its no-drawstring design avoids any adjustment fuss during studio time. See sizing tab for important fitting suggestions.

These are the best ballet shoes. They are super soft and comfortable and last a long time. As others have stated, they do run small. For us, they run about 1.5 sizes smaller than our current street shoe.
These are perfect for my little dancer. She says they make her toes point better (she is 5). They do run a tad small but that’s clearly stated in the description. We got a size and a half bigger than street size, they are a perfect fit. The canvas cleans fairly easy which is a plus. We will defiantly be getting they next size up for when she grows.
We are vegetarian, so I wanted to buy canvas ballet shoes versus leather. I originally bought bloch "synchrony" ballet shoes that my daughter outgrew, so the next time I bought the capezio "hanami" ballet shoes. What a difference in comfort! The bloch shoes are made of thick high-quality cotton canvas and are very durable (even after 8 months, they look almost like new), but they have almost no stretch. So my daughter prefers these new capazios because they are incredibly soft, stretchy, and comfortable. We will see how durable they are after a few months, but as of now, my daughter is quite happy with them.
Love these shoes. I have my younger students wear these, they look beautiful on there feet. Most of the had to get 2.5 sizes bigger than their street shoe though. One girl out grew hers and we put building blocks in the shoe over night as far as we could stretch it and it stretched the shoe about a half size. Also, the elastic come pre-sewn which is nice for the parents.
My daughter has a street shoe size of 2.5 Y - what is the right size for her JazzBallet shoes

For street size 2.5 you would need to convert to adult size, which would be 4.5. And then follow the recommended sizing for this shoe which is 1-2 sizes larger putting her in a 5.5-6.5. - DDS Customer Service (10/26/2020)
