Ballet shoes by Capezio

ENG Capezio was founded by Italian-born artist and cobbler, Salvatore Capezio in 1887. At the age of 17, he opened his first shop on Broadway and 39th Street, diagonally across from the old Metropolitan Opera House in New York City. At the time, the Statue of Liberty was barely a year old and the sign above his door read: The Theatrical & Historical Shoemaker. Capezio has been a family-run business from the beginning and has become the industry standard for all dance shoes and apparel.

FR Capezio a été fondé en 1887 par Salvatore Capezio, artiste et cordionnier d’origine italienne. A 17 ans, il ouvra son premier magasin sur Broadway et 39eme rue, juste en face de la Metropolitan Opera House à New York City. À cette période, la Statue de la Liberté avait à peu pres un an et on pouvait lire sur la pancarte au dessus de sa porte: Le Chausseur du Siècle. Capezio est une affaire de famille depuis le début et est devenue une réference dans l’industrie en matière de chaussures et tenues de danse.
