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.

    SIZED UP AND STILL SMALL AND TIGHT

    I am a US street shoe size 8. I read the other reviews and decided to size up 1 size to a 9W. They looked like child's sizes, but are marked correctly. And are sooo tight haha I shoulda gotten the 10. Lol did I order wrong? I got black canvas. Feels comfortable, but will rip though after a days work probably.

    WELL MADE CANVAS BALLET SLIPPER, BUT THE SIZING SUGGESTIONS ARE OFF!

    Based on reviews and the sizing guide I ordered this shoes 2 sizes bigger than my street shoe. I will definitely be returning these shoes, they are way too big. I will try to order them again, but maybe only 1 size bigger then my street shoe.

    SMALLER THAN EXPECTED

    I wear a size 9-9 1/2 and the size fitter suggested 9M. My shoes arrived two days earlier which was just in time for me to use them in class. They looked really small and when I put them on they were really tight. This is a particular issue on my left foot which has a slight bunion. I've worn them for a couple of classes so now the right foot is fine. For the left, I have to constantly adjust so there's not so much pressure. It becomes tighter when I flex so I can't stretch as much as I know I can and when I point the pressure is relieved. So if you have a bunion, corn, etc. maybe go a little bigger.

    INFO ON SIZING

    We finally figured out the sizing with these ballet slippers on our third try, and after reading a number of reviews. My 10-year old daughter wears a size 2 in street shoes. For these ballet slippers, she wears a size 4. So, in our experience, I recommend that you plan to size up 2 sizes.

    UNCOMFORTABLE UNDER TOES

    The inside of the toe patch is thick and catches my toes, especially when I point. The outer pads have a nice cushion to them, but I can't with the inside. Street size 10M, sized up 2 and got a 12. They fit alright but I think an 11.5 would fit better. Returning these.

    VERY COMFORTABLE AND FLATTERING

    This shoe fits like a glove and shows off my feet beautifully despite having a low instep and only moderately high arch. I wear a street size 9 narrow and bought this in an 11 N for the best fit. It's easy to articulate through and great for turns. Can't comment on durability yet but I love the fit and how comfortable they feel. I also love that it's ready to go right out of the box. There's no need to sew them or fuss with drawstrings first.

    PRETTY SHOE

    This is my first Capezio Hanami purchase. I was curious about this shoe based on all the great reviews and after receiving the shoe I will agree with those positive reviews. It was hard deciding on a size...so many different opinions on the sizing. I wear a size 6 street shoe, have an average width foot. I ordered a size 8C...going up 2 sizes from my street shoe size. My studio sells this shoe but didn't have what I thought to be my size. After receiving the shoe I questioned if I needed a smaller size. My studio had a 6.5C in stock and I tried on that shoe and it fit great...I will keep the 6.5C. The canvas has a nice stretch and I like the round toe of the shoe. I wear ballet flats 5 days a week for teaching...time will reveal the durability of this shoe.

    WONDERFUL FIT AND FAVORITE SHOES!

    Wonderful! This is the best flat shoe I have ever had. I have very flexible arches and I have had a lot of trouble finding shoes that shape to my arch. This shoe fits perfectly, feels like I am wearing a sock, has wonderful friction, and I love that it does not have an elastic drawstring. I wear Capezio pointe shoes as well, and the size of my pointe shoes is the same as my flat shoe. It is wonderful to not have to figure out a different size.

    FAVORITE FLAT BALLET SHOES!

    I've seen a lot of reviews on here that say these run small and to order a few sizes over your street size. I found the opposite to be true. I had bought my first pair of Hanamis in a store and tried them on to find the correct size. I am a size 8 street shoe, and I wear a 7.5M in the Hanamis. I have medium to slightly narrow width feet. I found these to stretch A LOT when you put them on, like socks. They are very thin like socks as well. I found that I needed a half size smaller than my street shoe because of all the stretch. When doing multiple pirouettes or chaines, if the shoe is too big, it will bunch up and twist around your foot. It also just makes your foot look better when pointed to not have all the extra fabric. These are not the most durable shoe, the trade-off is that they are extremely light and thin and they show off your arch if they are the right size. I take class 4 times a week, and a pair usually lasts me around a year before they get holes. I don't mind though since they usually get so gross anyways, it's better to throw them out and get a new pair. I love these shoes, they allow me the feeling of a sock with the traction of a split sole shoe.

    GOOD SHOES BUT SIZING IS COMPLETELY OFF

    I am making poor rating because the sizing is way off. The shoes themselves are nice. Also shipping took a lot longer than 3 business days. I ordered 2 sizes up compared to the street size. The street size is seven I ordered 9M and they still are significantly smaller. Now reordering size 11.00, hoping that it will fit. Whoever is advertising these shoes on the website should provide accurate sizing. I realize that sizing could be not exact but being so much off is simply unacceptable.

    SIZE UP UP UP!

    I read through a the reviews because fit is always such a gamble with shoes and settled on ordering these in 10.0 W (I am normally a 8.5-9 street shoe with a slightly wide foot) Upon opening I truly thought, "oh no I just have ordered a child size!". These really do run so small, hoping to exchange for the right size as they seem like great quality shoes but I've yet to do so successfully.

    Great shoes! It is nice that there is no drawstring that digs in to your foot, but the shoes also stay on really well (not loose at all). They accentuate your arches nicely and also do not twist off of your feet if the floor is too sticky.

    From my experience, these slippers run very small! I was a shoe size 6 but purchased a 8M when I first bought a pair. Now I wear size 7 in shoes and wear 9W in these slippers. Once you establish your size, no problem buying as you need to replace them.

    THE BEST BALLET FLAT I’VE TRIED!

    I have decent feet, but slightly less flexible ankles so the line never looks nice. I also have small and thin feet which is a pain to try and accommodate for. I have tried Bloch synchrony, So Danca bliss, Body wrappers 4 way stretch, and none of them were as comfortable and the capezio hanamis. They make my line look amazing, and my feet really get showcased with this shoe. I am a size 5.5 in women’s shoes for American street size, and got a 6.5N and the are perfect! They fit like a glove and are my new favorite shoe, I’m definitely sticking to this one!

    GOOD ALTERNATIVE TO SO DANCA BLISS

    My daughter usually wears So Danca Bliss but since it is sold out for several weeks, she tried Capezio Hanami and they are of equal quality. The only difference is Capezio Hanami fits more snugly lengthwise, so she had to exchange for a half size larger (So Danca 8 B to Capezio 8.5 Narrow).

    BLECH

    It's been a long time since I've bought ballet slippers, but in the interim the definition of the word canvas hasn't changed. The fabric of these shoes (described as canvas) is not canvas. I hate the fabric. It feels too thin to last very long. The length fits, they conform to my foot well, but the inner soles are uncomfortable, and the elastics are too tight. I'd like to stitch my own elastics, thank you. Not a fan. At all.

    Don’t order street shoe size!! I am a size 8 usually and I ordered a 7.5 to make sure they would have a snug fit and they don’t fit what so ever. Other than the sizing a great classic ballet shoe that looks sleek. Also, blends great in with tights to create a smooth line.

    BEST NARROW SLIPPER

    This is the slipper that fits my daughters foot the best. She has a narrow foot and it comes in a narrow. It hugs her foot nicely and doesn't gap. I have found if you follow the sizing directions the shoe fits as it should. I wish they carried a narrow Capezio Jazz shoe, then we would be set.

    NOT FOR ME

    I know so many dancers who absolutely love this shoe, but for me, they just were never right. I probably had around 3 pairs of these because I was trying to give them a fair chance but they just wouldn't flatter my foot no matter the size. All of my hanamis got holes very fast (I dance a lot tho). I have very archy, small, feet and I fount that the shoe did not really hug my arch. Instead, I had about 2 inches from my arch and the shoe at all times. Like I said before, these shoes are perfect for so many other dancers that I would still recommend trying them out.

    LOVE THESE BALLET SLIPPERS

    My daughter loves these, drawstrings sticking out and super comfortable. The elastic felt weird to her when she first put it on but after one class she wouldn't go back to her drawstring ballet slippers.

    GREAT FOR NARROW FEET

    my daughter has narrow feet so these work perfectly for her as the hanami comes in a narrow width. the canvas is soft and she has been able to wear her last pair for an entire year - 4 ballet classes a week, recitals, and shows!

    This is my second pair of these slippers and they are definitely one of my favorites to have ever worn. I like that they are stretchy and mold to the foot. i also like that there is no drawstring to worry about flapping out or digging into the top of your foot. I felt like the inner padding on the sole and heel of the show was a littler more raised than I would prefer, so it took a few wears to get used to, but it doesn't bother me any more. I typically wear a size 7 in street shoes, but I wear an 8 in these.

    BEAUTIFUL FIT

    My daughter fell in love with these shoes the minute she put them on her feet. The 4-way stretch makes for a beautiful slim fit that really allows her arch and point to be highlighted. In many canvas shoes, she's sensitive to bulkiness under her toes and the ball of her foot, but this shoe doesn't bother her in that way. She's thrilled with them!

    STRETCHY CANVAS

    The canvas material has an elastic-like feel making the show fit to my foot well and making my arch look really good. One thing I wasn't a fan of was the elastics that were already sewn in. I loved not having to sew them but they were too far forward on the foot for my liking and way to tight for my wide feet which pinched the skin on my foot when I stood normally or flexed my foot. My main issue with the shoes is that they don't come up very high on the side of my foot making my foot look strange from the top. This could be because I have rather wide feet. Either way, they were super comfy and I got a half size bigger than my street shoe and they were pretty snug but not necessarily uncomfortable. I ended up returning them because they just didn't fit right and I would probably go a up to a 10.5 or 11 (my street shoe is 9.5) just because they were a bit too snug for me. Overall, great shoe and idea, just maybe not meant for me.

    COMFORTABLE AND FLATTERING

    I went to a local shop and tried on every pair of split-sole stretch canvas shoes they had in stock, and this was by far my favorite. These shoes hug my high arches without any bunchy fabric, so they look great on. The medium thickness and cut of the leather soles is comfortable to dance on. The fully pre-sewn elastic and elastic edge instead of drawstring are great right out of the box. They feel very lightweight, like dancing in socks, which is fabulous, and the stretch eliminates any pressure on toenails and joints. I do think the fabric may wear out faster than traditional canvas, but since the price is reasonable I'm willing to take that chance. The only thing I dislike about them is the giant logo on the sole, which is a bit tacky.

    Very comfortable, super soft. Fits like a glove, which is great when you have narrow feet. I’m usually a 7 in shoes and I got a 7.5 m which are snug, just how I like them.

    GREAT SHOE FOR THOSE WITH NARROW FEET

    I love these shoes! I used to wear traditional canvas shoes, and with very narrow feet, there was always too much extra fabric when I wore them. With these shoes, they fit like a glove. I'm an 8 in street shoes and ended up being a 9M. I didn't even need to try the narrow sizing! I love that there's no elastics to worry about either. The fabric is thin, and I feel like I can feel the floor better in them than I could in my traditional canvas shoes. My younger sister also has these, and she likes them too. My sister and I have had them for a couple of months now, so we'll see how they hold up in the future.

    AWESOME BALLET SHOES!

    I LOVE these shoes! The stretch canvas hugs the foot, the front pad lies smooth without digging into the bottom of my foot, they're super comfortable, and they make my feet look great. The color's lighter than I'm used to for traditional ballet slippers, so they get dirty quicker, but it's no big deal. They do run extremely small, I wear a sz 7 to 7.5 street shoe, but need a 9.5M Hanami. A lot of other kids at my school switched over to this shoe after trying mine. Definitely recommended!

    I love how stretchy the canvas is and the no drawstring. But I find the shoes extremely uncomfortable the pad on the inside of the shoe and hard and there is way too much of it it digs into my heel. The outside sole is not flexible and catches when I try to pointe my feet. BUT if you don't already have heel/ achilles problems and don't mind the think padding that they should be fine.

    These are great shoes. Many of my ballet friends wear these and I love the way they look on them so I wanted to try them out. I got them and they felt super comfortable but they run pretty small. I am normally a size 8. I ordered an 8.5 just to be safe and they are too small. I am going to return them and order a bigger size.

    My daughter has a narrow foot and precise requirements for how she wants her ballet shoe to be. It is very hard to find a ballet shoe that isn't baggy or bulky on her foot. This shoe is perfect. Ultra soft canvas that fits her narrow foot like a glove and satisfies her standards for how her foot looks when dancing. She has ballet classes 4 days a week and these have lasted nearly 7 months for her. We have recommended these shoes to many classmates who also have purchased and highly recommend.

    My daughter has very, very narrow feet (AAA) and has been on the hunt for a shoe that fits well and flatters her foot for years. The Hanami hit all the marks. The shoe is very soft and comfortable, does not have the under sole padding that many shoes have, and stretches more than you would think possible. (When you pull them out of the box you'll no way these will fit, but you will be surprised.) The A width fits her foot beautifully, due to the stretch and the low profile of the shoe. With that in mind, if you have a very high instep, you may need to go up a width. It does run a little small. She measures a size 9 and needed a 9.5, but that isn't too bad. (If in doubt, order multiple sizes at once and return the ones that don't fit.) The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because she hasn't been wearing them long enough to really test the durability, but they've already lasted longer than the So Danca SD16 do. She dances about 3 hours a day, 5 days a week, and can kill a pair of those in about 10 days. The Hanamis have been in use for about a month and are doing fine so far.

    I used the size chart. She is a girls street shoe size 2. It says to go up 2 sizes and then look at the comparable adult size. It was a 6. I thought there's no way this won't fit. If anything it would be too big. She's in a Capezio Juliet size 4.5. I realize they're stretched out. I just bought her a new pair for Nutcracker at the end of November in Juliet size 5.5. With these shoes the right foot fit in length but the elastic around the top wasn't really tight enough. Then she went to put the left one on and couldn't even get it all the way on. Very dissappointed since I really didn't think they'd be too small. The shipping I paid when I ordered and the shipping I would have to pay to send them back will be almost as much as the shoe. I guess I learned a lesson and won't order shoes online where you have to pay shipping. It's just not worth it. It can make one pair of shoes very expensive. Basically 2 for the price of one. Lesson learned. Other than fit issues they seem very nice. The insides look as if they'd hold up better than the Juliet.

    Finally, a ballet flat for narrow feet! These shoes are a dream come true. They are stretchy, yet not constricting, unlike other elasticized canvas slippers. I have a very narrow foot (like AA-AAA) with tapered toes so most slippers are baggy, but these do wonders for my arch. The soles are thin and work well for turning and balances.I wear them between 5 and 8 hours per week, and I find they wear out after three to four months. They're not as durable as some slippers as you compromise fabric thickness for the form fitting elastic fabric. Can't wait to see the nude ones in a narrow size!

    I highly recommend this shoe. The canvas is very thin so that you can feel the floor and is very flattering. I will definitely be ordering them again. I run a street shoe size 8.5-9, but usually order a 9 because my feet are very wide, but I decided to go with 8.5 and picked the W width. It fit like a glove.

    These shoes are so soft and feel almost like I'm wearing socks. They turn well and the pad on the bottom does not irritate the foot. However, I wear a size 7 and a half street shoe and the description says to order your street shoe size. I was fitted for my pair of Hanamis at a dance store and ended up buying a size 9W. I do not have a wide foot, so I highly recommend you go up at least a size if not a size and a half.
