I am so beyond impressed! Not only are my shoes the perfect fit, insanely comfortable, and beautiful, the customer service is unmatched. I called asking many questions as a first time buyer and each question was met with kindness and immense knowledge. They also went out of their way to add the size I needed to their order so I could get my shoes sooner. I already want another pair and it’s been less than a month of wearing them. I will never wear another brand or order from another company. I didn’t even have to break them in, they fit beautifully and don’t make my feet hurt.
I am really happy with this wider style, since I have both wider feet and bunions. I've only danced in them once, but they were super comfortable right out of the box with no break-in necessary. I love this strap style that can be buckled under the instep or around the ankle. A well-balanced, elegant shoe! I'm very pleased and glad I took a chance on the wider footbed.
I was so excited to open the box of my first pair of tango shoes. They are beautiful and surprisingly very comfortable. Thank you so much!
When my shoes arrived...I was so excited. Packaged beautifully and my shoes looked beautiful. I wore them to a Milonga and was surprised at the comfort of this shoe.
Catania black is classic, elegant, and comfortable. My feet are on the wide side and this one fits perfectly. It did not require any breaking in out of the box. Super stable and supportive. The ankle strap adds some sassiness to it. Customer service from Gaia and Charles is always top-notch. Highly recommended!
I purchased these Derby's for my wife, who enjoys studying the Lead Role in Tango. However, finding a good pair of women's derby lead shoes is not a simple matter in Japan. Low and behold, Axis Tango presented the Derby from Madame Pivot. I order a pair of these with my Fresedo - Black & Burgundy (see review above). While it took four months for the shoes to arrive, neither my wife nor I have been anything less than joyful. My wife was surprised by how remarkably comfortable the shoes were as she put them upon her feet and began to dance. She said they were light, flexible, and supportive. The style and looks of these Derbies are impressive - unique - and the members of our practice noticed her new shoes immediately. However, she did take them off after an hour because, she said, she did not want to lose all the sparkles on the shoe.
After several months my Fresedo Black and Burgundy Tango shoes arrived, and, most importantly, I was able to wear them during a Practica in Japan. I have purchased multiple pairs of Tango shoes - several from Axis Tango - and these are unequivocally the best pair of Tango Shoes I have purchased. Visually, they are stunning, the leather sublime, and the colors rich in depth. However, looks do not make a good tango shoe alone. Here are some of the reasons I would like to share with Axis Tango customers. First, lateral support is outstanding. The shoes hold my feet well without slipping or cramping. Second, the sole is leather - this was a special order - and it is excellent. I could not believe how smooth and connected they felt to me and, more importantly, the floor. And third, the leather lining fits perfectly without any slippage. Finally, I would be remiss not to state that these are also one of the most comfortable pairs of Tango Shoes I have owned. Yes, they are slightly more money, and they had to be ordered from Italy, but the wait and cost have already been well worth it.
Comfortable, practicable, sparkly, and FUN ! I like close toed shoes, these give me that and look good too. I am an artist and a friend of mine said that they are perfect for me !!!
Lovely to walk and dance in the Katrinski Flats. They are comfortable, practical and functional.
It has a timeless design of playfulness.
These shoes are not only beautiful but a perfect fit and very comfortable. Arrived nicely packaged and in a timely manner.
These shoes are so beautiful, with all the soft neutral colors, and a touch of animal print. The wrap style ankle strap is my favorite style, too. Very secure and comfortable. I love them!
I was pleased with the look and quality of the shoes, and happy with the purchase for this reason. The downside is that the shoes are a little snug so it will take some breaking in. The soles don’t have any cushion, another downside for comfort. I was disappointed that the shoes were advertised as ready to ship (as my old shoes were disintegrating fast), but in reality it still took a little over 2 months for them to arrive. COVID shipping delays? Who knows….
Hi Kareen, thank you for your review, we appreciate your feedback! We're sure the shoes will mold to your foot with use as they are made of high quality leather. Regarding a bit longer wait than expected... yes, everything is now taking longer as we are still experiencing the pandemic-related delays that are out of our control. We'll adjust the likely delivery time notice on the website so that we can better manage expectations. Thank you for pointing this out, it's helpful to us and other buyers as well. Enjoy your new shoes!
Thank you Sheldon for letting us know! Enjoy your new goodies!
Wish I had gotten a response about suede soles - I asked if it incurred an additional cost and was never answered.
The strap is way too long.
Hi Kathleen, thank you for your review and I'm sorry we didn't earn your 5-stars feedback. We replied to your inquiry but perhaps it didn't reach your inbox; suede sole option is available for custom order. This design has a longer double ankle strap as shown on the photo so that it can be wrapped around your ankle twice, but this can be easily adjusted by cutting the strap to your desired length (we suggest a cobbler's assistance). Hopefully you'll still enjoy dancing in your new shoes!
Just what the doctor ordered!This is my second pair of these shoes. That is the second pair in black and this fabric. I love them so much the first time when my shoes were out I ordered a second pair. Classic ❤️❤️❤️
Oh, we are delighted you are happy! This shoe is so perfect no wonder you are getting the second (or third pair) (P.S. You are not the only one!) Enjoy your new beauties!
I thought I would like the shoes but I am totally in love with them now that they are here. They’re classy, comfortable and fit like a glove.
Yay, yay, yay! You made us dance in our office when we read your fabulous review. Thank you for making our day! ❤️
Excellent fit and quality. They feel good. I feel stable despite the 7 cm height which was a concern when purchasing. Definitely one of my best dance shoe purchases.
Thank you Sara for your lovely review, we surely appreciate it! Enjoy your shoes!
I wanted a pair of conservative black shoes with leather soles for more formal dance events. These fit that bill perfectly. As usual with Axis Tango shoes, these are extremely comfortable. Do note that the soft leather stretches quite a bit as you wear them, so size accordingly.
First of all, they are incredibly beautiful! And they fit my feet straight out of the box! The heel placement is exactly where I need it for walking and dancing. The comfort level is outstanding, no strain anywhere in my feet. I bought these for an upcoming wedding and can hardly wait to dance the night away in them! I appreciate that you make such beautiful and functional shoes available!
These are so much more beautiful in person!! I thought the leather was textured, but it is smooth, which I like better. They looked gorgeous at the milonga and definitely caught attention.
Oh, we are over the moon you are happy! Thank you so much for your kind words and wonderful review!
These shoes are a gorgeous shade of red that will look great with many of my dance dresses. They are super comfortable and fit great too. I can't wait to get out dancing in them again.
Thank you so much for your kind words and wonderful review! We so appreciate it. Enjoy your new shoes :-)
