Theatrical, Period & Dance Shoes

Founded in 1922 specifically as a dance and theatrical shoe company, Anello & Davide has developed extensively, but our high quality theatrical footwear is still a point of pride. Stars from Sir John Guilgud to Victoria Beckham and beyond have chosen to perform in our shoes. Guilgud gave his shoes enough importance to once state that "The day when the public is aware of my shoes, is the day my theatrical career is over."

Theatrical Footwear catalogue

This latest Theatrical Footwear catalogue is a comprehensive guide to period footwear, as well as a working catalogue to enable the appropriate selection to be made for any theatrical production. Anello & Davide makes a feature of creating footwear to specific requirements, which may not be met by the catalogue range.
