Made by hand in Argentina by 2x4 al pie

Order your 2X4 one half size SMALLER than your regular US dance shoe size.

FLEX is a new economical entry in the 2x4 al pie collection. It has the same soft upper leather and split sole construction you came to know and love from the premier 2x4 al pie atelier from Buenos Aires, but now with the permanent soft leather sole. Shock-absorbing heel. Handmade in Buenos Aires.

2x4 al pie are fully split-sole shoes. That means there is no "shank" whatsoever. The shoe can be folded like a wallet. Unique to Axis Tango edition of these new and sought-after models is the insole insert with rigid support for when arch support is desired.

2X4 are perhaps the lightest all-leather tango shoe available. Handmade in Buenos Aires with supple, deliberately light gauge leathers and linings, designed to break in better than typically heavier shoe leathers. Making an ultra light and flexible dance shoe without sacrificing too much durability is a tricky balance to find, but 2X4 stay supportive a lot longer than would be expected of such a light and flexible shoe. 

NOTE: The stamped leather finish is proving to be less resilient than we would like. We can not guarantee the "Iguana" finish. If you are an exuberant tango dancer, you should expect the finish to deteriorate sooner than later. The construction is the usual high quality you expect from Axis Tango. The issue is purely cosmetic. 

MORE INFO about the finish. The finish is achieved by embossing "Iguana" scales and pigment onto off-white base leather. The problem occurs when the "Iguana" pigment, either "natural" or "negro" in the case of this pair, is danced off, exposing the lighter base pigment beneath. See the example picture provided. We believe this will happen to all the "Iguana" finishes eventually. Depending on your style of tango, it could take a long time and barely be noticeable, or you could earn a blemish the first night! The picture provided is of my Almagro FLEX, Iguana Natural, with 75-100 hours of tango on them. Your result could be much worse, or much better, but we believe you can expect this result to the extent that you use your uppers in the course of the dance, deliberately or not.

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 9.5 you will most likely be a size 44.
  • 2x4 al pie fit approx. 1/2 size larger than street size.
  • DNI shoes fit approx. true to street size.
  • DNI trainers fit 1-2 sizes smaller than street size; check shoe's fit notes for sizing advice.
  • Monsieur Pivot shoes fit slightly snugger/smaller than street size.
  • Paso de Fuego shoes fit approx. true to street size.
  • Tangolera men's shoes fit approx. true to street size.
