Capezio's Daisy ballet shoe has a supple and durable leather upper, full suede sole, and bar-tacked elastic drawstring that won't pull out. It has pre-attached a elastic over the arch so no sewing is required. For maximum comfort the pleats are flat and even. Kids love the colourful daisy print cotton lining. "This belongs to" ID tag on the inside so they'll find their way home if lost.
It's so important for children to begin dancing in a leather shoe that gives grip on all four sides of their feet, as well as the bottom. A good fit lets them feel the floor with their point. Too much growing room in a ballet shoe will set them back. Remember the shoe will grow a half size with wear.
For fitting, begin with street shoe size. The Daisy was designed to fit a child's foot naturally, and so fits wider than other shoes. Narrow (N) width is average and Medium (M) is wide.
