Capezio Collaborates with DWTS' Tony Dovolani on Dancesport Ballroom Shoe Collection

For 125 years, Capezio has helped dress performers of all ages and skill levels, from dance and theater to fitness and recreation. The brand has now announced its collaboration with two-time World Rhythm Champion, Emmy-nominated choreographer and "Dancing With the Stars" professional dancer Tony Dovolani for the latest Capezio Dancesport ballroom shoe collection available this December.

Dovolani added creative input and final approval on each style within the Dancesport ballroom shoe collection. The lineup includes nine women's styles and seven men's styles, all blending together comfort and design. Within the line are three trendy new styles, including the Tony Latin, Tony Flex Latin, and Tony Smooth, available in black leather or patent, all aptly named after the star. The line will pay homage to all things strong and stylish by featuring the highest quality in leathers, finishes and fabrics, as well as crystal Swarovski(®) Elements embellishments to complement the latest season's trends.

"Capezio represents a long-standing tradition in the dance community, which is why I've been wearing the brand for years and feel right at home working with Capezio," said Dovolani. "Capezio is made by dancers for dancers. Capezio products are the perfect package, blending together aesthetics with function, offering proper foot support to help ensure dancers perform their best."

"Capezio has been known throughout the industry as the go-to sole for dancers everywhere," said Capezio CEO Michael Terlizzi. "To help us create a new innovative shoe line that every dancer would love to wear, we found our perfect 'dance' partner in Tony Dovolani. His professional insight and firsthand knowledge can be seen in each shoe within the Dancesport ballroom shoe collection."
