These shoes are really lovely! Surprisingly Madame Pivot’s 80mm heel appeared to me to be about the same height as Tangolara’s 70mm heel. I expected these shoes to fit a little bit more generous than a Tangolera of the same size and width, but unfortunately I found this medium width Madame Pivot “Daisy” size 37 too tight around the metatarsals. I am comfortable in medium wide Tangoleras. I had previously tried another model MP in medium width and it fit comfortably and much wider than this pair of Daisy, so perhaps width varies amongst the MP models ? I worried about how the beautiful glitter leather would stretch (if I were to use stretchers), so I reluctantly returned these shoes. They are very beautiful! They are neutral in color with a bit of glamour.
I initially ordered this in a medium width, but it was way too tight. The patent leather in the vamp makes it less stretchy than designs with other material. Gaia made it easy to return it for a wide width, which after a few wears, stretched out enough to fit my feet. Beautiful shoes, good padding, stable heel. The heel cage design makes it feel really secure.
We were happy to assist you in finding a better paid for your feet! We are excited to hear that this pair works significantly better. We hope you come back soon!
Trying a smaller but wider shoe did the trick! Gaia is very helpful in guiding your tango needs
Thank you Claudia! We loved helping you find the right fit and are happy to hear that you are enjoying them too. We hope you come back soon for your next pair!
Gorgeous shoes! A true nude on me, with subtle and elegant sparkle. Well-balanced shoe. Love it!
Thank you Rachel! We're happy to hear that you love our Daisy shoe. Finding the right nude heel is hard, so we're thrilled that they work perfectly for you even with the little hint of sparkle. Happy dancing! We hope you come back soon for another pair.
Tried these in same size as Jasmine and Penelope by same maker, but these had a thumb's width of space between my heel and back of shoe. So maybe pitched differently? Comfortable shoe though and would have liked if the sizing was right for me.
Hi Katie! We're sorry to hear your shoes didn't fit quite as well as you would've liked. Have you contacted customer service? We'll be sure to find a shoe that fits perfectly! We appreciate your 5-star rating.
