Please note, this is an approximate size conversion guide. Conversions may vary from brand to brand. For further information or advice, contact customer care.

Tango shoes should fit nicely & comfortably snug. Premium quality tango shoes will relax onto your foot. If you purchase shoes that are not snug enough to begin with, this can become an issue after a few tandas.

Axis Tango shoes are listed in Italian sizing unless otherwise specified. Italian tango shoes overall run small, so if you are between sizes you may need to go the size up as opposed to down, i.e. if your street shoe size is 7.5 you will most likely be a size 38.

A note on width: Narrow, medium, and wide width descriptions on women's tango shoes are only in reference to the manufacturer's width classification for the specific design. Again, Italian tango shoes run small and "wide" tango shoe is likely not comparable to the U.S. wide width used for street shoes. 

Please review the comprehensive sizing guide page for more information such as heel heights measurements and more.
