The Capezio Cozy Toes gel pads are a welcome relief to every dancer's feet. Pads feature a medical grade gel that adds comfort, and Cotton/Spandex fabric that provides moisture absorption and grip. The shape of the pad hugs the foot and keeps them from sliding or bunching, while the soft flattens on pointe.
I was looking for an alternative to my bunheads jr. This is not it. I ordered as per the sizing which was very strange, putting me into a medium-large. I should have went with my gut and ordered the small-medium. I wear a 6.5 street shoe. I cut on these big time. I probably need to do more as I have nothing to lose a this point. I am not wearing them. The pieces I cut off make an ok toe separator. They come up really far on the sides and they were sticking out everywhere. Back to the drawing board and the scissors.
It honestly is true to the name I love that you can still have comfort without having to smother your foot with thick cotton toe pads. They are just the right amount if support, comfort, and durability.
Wow, where do I even begin on these cozy toes? They are just INCREDIBLE in every way imaginable. The issue with most of the toe pads I have tried is that they slip and slide. Not my cozy toes, they don't budge. The name does not lie, my toes are tremendously cozy. They take the pain out of pointe and create a feeling of love and support. Capezio has done a great justice to the art of ballet. There's no holding me back when I have my cozy toes. Love those guys so much, everyone needs a pair in their life.

If you ordered these,wear these, what size did you orderwhat is your street shoe? The sizing on these seems odd. Are these kid shoe sizes? Are they ballet shoe sizes in capezio? I normally wear sm-med in their tights. My street shoe is a 6.5 American. My pointe shoes are Gaynors, box 2 narrow, size 8. I am worried if I order large, which seems correct, I will have them bulging out of the shoe if the sizing is not really correct. If i order small,the sizing is true, then it may not even fit my foot. Confused... I called Capezio as wellthey were no help. Thank you!!
