Bloch

Founded in Sydney, Australia in the early 1930's by Eastern European immigrant Jacob Bloch, a craftsman who began his career producing exceptional hand-made pointe shoes for revered ballet dances worldwide. So successful was Jacob, that a full dance range quickly followed. Since that time, the rapid growth of Bloch’s reputation has established the brand as one of the most trusted in the industry.

 

Capezio

Capezio was born over a century ago when Italian émigré Salvatore Capezio opened a small theatrical shoe repair shop a stone’s throw away from New York’s old Metropolitan Opera House. The sign above his door read: “The Theatrical & Historical Shoemaker.” On the day he created an emergency pair of shoes for Jean de Reszke, Salvatore quickly made the transition from cobbler to shoemaker. With over 130 years of quality craftsmanship and timeless design to its name, Capezio is a popular choice for athletes and performers, the world over.
