This shoe fit perfectly and made turning easy but the bottom split after only 1 1/2 wks of daily class! Evidently, this has been a common complaint of this shoe (very atypical of Capezio!). After discussing with customer service (they were great!), another brand in the same style will be ordered.
I ordered these because I am beginning a lyrical class in a couple of days and just received them in the mail. I tried them on and immediately they were uncomfortable. They were tight and too small even though the sizing chart told me to get this size. Anyways, I literally did one pirouette and the bottom sole ripped about 3/4 from stitching to stitching. I am very angry and disappointed because one, I was looking forward to these shoes and two, what am I supposed to use for my lyrical class? I will not be buying these again.
I love these shoes they are wonderful! Great for contemporary dance and lyrical! I've always have had a hard time turning on the dance floor with any other contemporary shoe with an open toe. With this shoe since it's a closed toe you can spin very easily and do great turns. I think this shoe is the best for turns... LOVEEE THEM!
This product looks cheap. Not something I will be taking to comp. They spin, ok. But not a very smooth spin. The bands are a little tight. I am a size 8 in women's and ordered a Medium.....still a tad bit tight. They are nicely packaged but still not sure! The shoe doesn't look like it would last a very long time. We shall see!
