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…….
