I have worn Footlights for years, obviously for dancing (ballroom, but also tap in the past) but also for dress shoes. LOVE THEM!
29-Nov-2015 Product:
The shipping was fast. The overall quality was great, but the shoes were very narrow and pinched my toes so much. I was told they would stretch, but I wore them in quite a few rehearsals, and they never stretched much. The regular shoes are very narrow. I had to purchase another pair of shoes in... Read More.

I love the shoes, so comfortable and pretty.
08-May-2015 Product:
This 2" heal shoe does not fit my foot (sadly). I own black Capezio leather (upper and sole) 1.5" heal shoes and they work well for dancing. I bought these 1/2 size larger and in wide (normally wear a medium). we are glad that we were able to successfully help you. We are glad you were able to take advantage of our free return process. We do have a sizing suggestion in the description of this shoe online but it is really just a general guideline and everyone's feet are different. Hopefully if we work... Read More.

I found that a dance shoe that is the same size as the street shoes I wear is best for me, rather than a dance shoe that is a half size larger. I've worn my new shoes twice and love them. They do their job well and are comfortable.
11-Apr-2015 Product:
for some reason these shoes (the 650) do not fit me correctly. The toe get pushed down and leaves space at the heal. I have been wearing capezio 1 1/2" charcter shoes for ballroom dancing for several years and have been verry satisfied. thanks again gloria we have resent the invoice email of that new order. We are glad to see that you were able to take advantage of our free return policy .

31-Jan-2015 Product:
Shipping was a bit pricy to pay on top of the cost of the shoes
27-Jan-2015 Product:
Too tight for me but really liked and ordered another size.

Product is what I expected.

Great shoe!
10-May-2014 Product:
I already used 2 different brands of character shoes and all of them ripped of on the sides. Yours is full leather making the shoe more stable
09-Apr-2014 Product:
First pair we bought locally (they had to order and it took a week) ripped about 4 days before the show. Had to order a new pair (chose to do it online) and pay for overnight shipping to get them in time. Haven't taken the first pair back to the store yet, so don't know if they will refund. thank you for your feedback. We will always stand by our product so you should have no issues returning if purchased from a Capezio store. If you do have any problems please contact our online customer service and we will be sure to help.

Good quality, the right look and a great price!
18-Feb-2014 Product:
I have been wearing these shoes for about 15 years for work. I am a waitress and I wear them 6 plus hours a day. While I still love these shoes and will continue to wear them, I feel the quality has gone down hill over the years.
06-Nov-2013 Product:
Even though it has a higher heel, this shoe is more comfortable than the Suede Sole Jr. Footlight that I returned. I believe, however, instructions are to order your normal shoe size but that is incorrect; I had to order 1 whole size larger than my normal size. I have the Jr. Footlight Character shoe in...
