Capezio's Jr. Footlight shoe is perfect for any performance, whether it's character, theatrical, or you can even attach
taps on its stitched leather sole. The shoe features a traditional buckle closure for custom fitting, and a shapely,
mid-cut heel that's just the right height.
Salvatore Capezio was born in 1871 in Muro Lucano, Italy. Uninterested in following in his father's footsteps
as a construction engineer, he became an artist of his own right, a cobbler. In 1887, at the age of 17, he opened his
shop on Broadway and 39th Street, diagonally across from the old Metropolitan Opera House in New York City. Soon, the
shop became a meeting place for dancers who would stop by to discuss their needs and to get a pair of his shoes. As
Capezio's popularity grew, dancers from around the world made it a point to visit him and purchase his shoes. The
innovation of the products that Salvatore Capezio created and the camaraderie he shared with the dancers molded the
direction that his company would follow. In this image, the Capezio brand was established to promote and recognize
ongoing achievements and participation in dance. Capezio products remain in the forefront in quality and in
technological advances with innovations like the split-sole, the stretch-insert, the Dansneaker and the Tapsneaker.
Capezio believes that their success is dependent upon the individual commitment of each customer to continually set new
standards of creativity and performance, while preserving a reputation for dependability and distinction. Capezio
pledges their support and dedication to the advancement of dance, theater and recreation in communities worldwide.
