Capezio is now a trademark of Capezio Ballet Makers, Inc., headquartered in New Jersey; with a full line of dance wear and a chain of dance centers. Capezio products are marketed worldwide but mainly found in USA and Europe.
Origin: Salvatore Capezio, 1887.
Inside cover ad, Dance Magazine Apr 1930, stated, “Salvatore Capezio, the world's premier theatrical shoe manufacturer; whose 43 years of dedication to the art of creating dancing foot wear has won him distinguished honer both abroad and in America.”
I have been informed by a reader that Salvatore Capezio opened a shop in 1887, named The Theatrical & Historical Shoemaker, when he was 17 year old. It was cross from the old Metropolitan Opera House in New York City. In the 1950's - 1980's Capezio Company head was "Ben Sommers, a non-family member whom the childless Salvatore Capezio thought of as a son."
Sommers eventually sold the Capezio name to U.S. Shoe Corporation. Then U.S. Shoe Corp was purchased by Nine West...to Ballet Makers, Inc. of Totowa, NJ,, now it’s Capezio BalletMakers, Inc. Basically, all that remains it the purchased name, “Capezio.” The ads for Capezio, 1924-1938, show Salvatore Capezio was a big fan of advertising. His ads were large and frequent. They featured, all new creations, about the same time, or just after other companies introduced the same all new. Regardless of all of the above, Salvatore Capezio is to be honored for his hard work, is ability to turn a small shop into a company known all over the world. In 2012, Capezio celebrated 125 of operation.
