Overall, dance shoes should fit comfortably snug. They should feel like a glove enveloping your feet. You may find that your correct shoe size, for dancing, is one size smaller than your regular shoe size. That is especially true if you are in between sizes. If you don't plan to wear our shoes for dancing, then choose your regular shoe size.
For sandals, your toes should be close to the front of the shoe but not hanging over the edge. Generally speaking, your toes will be closer to the edge for dancing shoes than in your regular street shoes to avoid catching the floor during dance moves.
With wear, the leather will stretch, molding to the shape of your foot. The shoes will stretch across the widest part of your foot as you break them in, but they will not stretch in the length.
Axis Tango shoes are based on Italian/European sizing.

Improved comfort, subtle beauty

These Comme Il Faut have comfortable padding under the metatarsals. I found these definitely improved in comfort compared to my older closed heel CIF. I found these shoes comfortable in general, the fit was generous. I returned these shoes because they were not the color I expected , but also because I wondered if the heel strap and t-strap would be secure enough on my foot while pivoting. I didn’t try pivoting in these shoes and have never danced in t-strap shoes, I simply had a doubt in my mind while trying these on.. The color of these shoes is beige, but is different from what is shown here. An internet search for Comme Il Faut Charol Beige will yield a photo that shows the right color. I think any dancer who is looking for a neutral colored shoe, who likes the fit of CIF and feels secure in a t-strap model would appreciate the improved comfort and subtle beauty of these shoes. As a side note: With this order I had also ordered a pair of Madame Pivot 80mm. The difference in actual heel height between the brands was astounding. Apparently heel heights are determined differently from brand to brand! Madame Pivot’s 80mm was very close to the same height as my Tangolera 70mm, whereas these CIF 80mm appeared to be very nearly , if not the same height as Tangolera 90mm.
