Broadway & Beyond
By the 1930s Capezio products were dancing across Broadway in the Ziegfeld Follies and in dozens of other musicals. In 1941, Claire McCardell showed the Capezio long-sole ballet shoe with her fashion collection. The enthusiastic response provoked Lord & Taylor, Neiman Marcus and other major stores to purchase and promote Capezio footwear. This trend became so strong that in 1949 Capezio made the cover of Vogue. In 1952, Capezio received the Coty Award, fashion’s highest accolade.
Capezio is Dance Innovation
Capezio's continues to push the envelope by developing technologically advanced, quality products for dancers. Examples of Capezio shoe innovations include:
