Capezio Nicolini

Capezio Nicolini

These pointe shoes have been discontinued for more than 10 years. They were one of the narrowest pointe shoe models in the Capezio line. I do see Nicolini’s for sale at various dance supply companies even today. I can only guess that more shoes were made than could be sold. The Nicolini fits a small majority of dancers who need a very narrow pointe shoe. The shanks are medium strength. Soon these pointe shoes will become a collectors item, along with the Capezio Ultimo and the Dura-Toe. I definitely want a pair to add to my collection…….

  2. I have a pair of Capezio Dura-Toe pointe shoes! I know they are extremely rare, and if you would like some pictures of them to post on your blog, I’d be happy to send them! 🙂 I LOVE THIS BLOG by the way, as I am also a fanatic for pointe shoes!

  3. Thank you, Alexis. Yes, I would be glad to post your Dura-Toe pictures here.

    I have a brand new in the box pair of 5C Capezio Niccolini’s. I can e mail a photo if you are interested in buying them. I bought them about 11 or 12 years ago.

    • margaret bergland, if you’re still interested in selling, and if the site owner did not already take you up on the offer, I would be interested in buying! I’ve been looking for the very same size (Nicolini 5C) for my mother, who used to wear that size when she danced. Her pair are gone now, so I’ve been trying to bring back the magic. Are they European Pink, by any chance?

  5. I have Nicolinis! I did not know they are now only made by custom order. They are exquisite pointe shoes, I even kept the box. My Gaynor Mindens are quite beautiful, too. So happy I found this blog entry.

  6. I got some random pointe shoes for 8 dollars at a small thrift store. They are the Nicolinis, although the shank is extremely hard and the bottom is a very dark brown. The look very old and the canvas sole is falling out because of the old glue. It’s very interesting
