Size Guide
Shoe Size Guide - Women

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.

Stamped soft coral leather with leather insole.

  • Katrinski flats fit fairly true to size; if you are between sizes (i.e., 36.5), select the next size (i.e., 37). 
  • Leather upper and leather insole.
  • Flexible PVC outsole for indoor and outdoor use. The first time you use them on the dance floor you might feel a bit of resistance, but very quickly the PVC outsole will "cure" and become soft and perfectly suitable for all surfaces.
  • These flats are such a joy to wear! As one tanguera exclaimed: "Yummm! Just spent a day dancing in Katrinskis for the first time. Never been so comfortable in my tango life." They are perfect to dance indoors or for dancing & walking outdoors.

After working as a wigmaker and makeup artist in Sweden, Katrin Urwitz took a break to travel to Latin America. Her first encounter with the enchanted Buenos Aires led to many more trips and to immersion in tango life. Since 2007 Katrin spent a lot of time in Argentina and her interest in craft & design, combined with getting used to wearing high heels for the first time in life, awoke her fascination with shoes. They had to be beautiful, comfortable, and functional. Katrin wanted to learn how they are made by hand. And so she did. 
 
As a result of this personal journey Katrin started her tango shoe atelier, Katrinski. In her own words, "I do almost everything myself, from idea, to design, and trough all the steps to a ready pair of shoes. I have learned from masters with generations of experience in the art of making shoes by hand, far from the big industries." Katrin's unique and sought-after creations are a beguiling mix of the Latin feminine way of expression with the Swedish practical approach to comfortable footwear. She has successfully melded together the best of both worlds, highlighting fine craft and original design.
