Bandolera Tango Shoes from Italy are well known throughout the world and are the favorite shoes of many tango professionals and devoted amateur dancers. You have likely seen them on a dance floor at home and during your tango travels, but you may not know what goes on behind the scenes at Bandolera. 

The NO MORE PAIN cushioned memory foam insole and the precise arch support that is the standard feature in the entire women’s line of high heels are just the starting point for Bandolera’s technical innovations and fashion forward philosophy. The Bandolera style team works in collaboration with fashion professionals to discover and incorporate new trends in colors and shapes. 

The Bandolera shoe atelier is staffed with artisan shoemakers and master craftsmen and, in addition to Bandolera, they make walking and dance shoes for other major brands. The showroom is reserved for Bandolera retailers, where distributors get the opportunity to examine prototypes, new models, semi-finished shoes, custom options, or the catalog and personalized items, so they can better serve the dancing public.


The Bandolera warehouse is stocked with approximately 6,000 pairs of Tango shoes, in sizes 34 to 41 for women and 39 to 46 for men. It’s the ultimate shoe closet for tango dancers!
