International dance superstar Sophia Lucia and Capezio have teamed up to bring you this exclusive signature Pirouette dance shoe! Inspired by Sophia Lucia's Guinness World Record of 55 consecutive pirouettes, this half sole features a wider EVA sole patch for maximum floor coverage, soft leather that shapes and conforms to your foot, and a more rounded toe shape for perfect lines. Special details include the Sophia Lucia "Lovely Heart" embossed into the leather and her signature on the outside lining.
We are done going through canvas turners and the constant holes, so we decided to give these a try. We were worried because the last leather pair she had dug into the sides of her feet. These have worked out wonderfully and she told me she never wants to wear another turner again! At first the plastic bottom is very slick but after a few wears the bottoms are broken in and she can turn with ease. They are so durable, lasted for one dance season. True to size, she was a street size 2 and the XL fit perfectly. They are starting to get tight on her so we're moving up to the adult shoe. I would definitely recommend this shoe.
I purchased a Medium pair online for my teen daughter who wears a 6.5 street shoe (Size 7 Bloch super jazz) from another company. The shipment was extremely delayed, and she needed them for a performance, so I took her (and my little daughter) to a storefront to buy them. I'm so glad I did. They run extremely small. She needed a Large. My younger daughter who wears a street size 8.5 Toddler was able to fit into the Girls Mediums with just a tiny bit of growing room. They are very well made and have shown little signs of wear in the few months they have had them. The elastics are still in great shape and the leather is heavy and durable. All in all a great shoe, just very misleading sizing.
For the girl obsessed with sophia lucia, these are perfect! I've used capezio's foot undeez and their full coverage toe-cover moderns and these have the same great quality. They were a little pricey for my taste but my niece is going into her second year of modern and since Sophia as Capezio's new model, she had to have these. I'm just happy seeing that the quality is on par with their other modern products. She'll get some longevity out of them. Pleased aunt. :)
