.2: Pair of dance tights, size small/medium, with inherent holes in feet that are custom-dyed to a dark brown to match the skin tone of the dancer. The foot holes allow the tights to be worn covering the foot and toes, with the hole at the ball of the foot, or worn footless with the foot portion rolled at the ankle. The tights have an elastic waistband with the clothing designer logo woven within the waistband that repeats "Capezio". A clothing tag is attached at the back of the waist with the care instructions, size, and materials. On the back of the tag is hand-written text in black ink reading "IS".
