You may then decide to put on a Capezio dance shoe and feel like it was made just for you. The difference in brands is the quality of material and design of the shoe. Companies that have a long history of experience in dance shoes understand what it takes to make a shoe comfortable and light on your feet.

There are no specific brands of shoes that schools require but many encourage that girls wear pink and boys wear black or white for ballet. Popular ballet manufacturers are Sansha, Bloch, Grisko, Capezio and Prima Soft. These companies have popular full-soled and split-soled shoes.
