My first time ordering tangolero shoes. I have bought several Bandolero shoes and been very satisfied. But even though the shoe size is similar, and the heel height is my preference, and I like the color. And it has a heel cap which are harder to find—rather than an open heel. The material over the first metatarsals does not hug my foot like some soft leather shoes and so it puckers slightly over the phalanges. I am only guessing that may be the reason the left shoe creates a noise and sounds like a muffled croaking frog when I walk. Though the right shoe is fine. I’m terribly disappointed that they are not acceptable.
