Capezio Pointe Shoes Reviews

Capezio has really narrowed down its pointe shoe options (they cut 5 styles in the last year). Sometimes having less options is great. You won’t get sidetracked by slight variations.

This list of Capezio pointe shoes has been categorized by shank strength because that is one of the top qualities to consider when picking a pointe shoe.

Check out HTD’s Dance Shoe Questions for more information on fitting pointe shoes.

Soft Shank

A soft shank is great for certain types of feet. If you have a hard time getting all the way up on toe and/or have a shallow arch, ask your teacher if you should try soft shanks.

How do you know when your pointe shoes are dead?

Medium Shank

Most pointe shoe shanks are medium strength because they are good for most feet. As a beginner, you want to start by looking at a medium shank, unless your teacher or fitter says otherwise.

There are also minor adjustments you can make to medium shanks to stiffen or break them down (like jet glue or shanking).

Education is the key to great pointe work. What should you learn now to help your pointe work?

Hard Shank

Hard shanks are for dancers with super flexible arches that need extra support and/or dancers with very strong arches who tend to break shoes in a couple of weeks. Capezio has a few shoes with a hard shank option.
