Bandolera (now Tangolera)

Asti - "Scottish" Pattern Leather (9cm)

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.

Hope there will be improvements

It looks very nice, but I hope the front would be more open for the toes. After dancing and taking off the shores, I notice that my feet are colored with black.

Thank you for your feedback. We must admit, we are a bit surprised with your experience with this shoe as it is the best seller for years and we haven't heard of happening what you describe. But of course, if there is something that needs to be adjusted, we have passed your comments to the manufacturer for a review.

Shoes is great

Shoes is very comfortable, great customer service. If you have pre order, it does take up to 14 weeks.

Thank you for your positive feedback! Since these shoes are made with care on order in Italy, wait time can be from 6-16 weeks for the artisans to finish them. But they are worth it! :-) Enjoy your dances in them!

Very well made, comfortable. My

Very well made, comfortable. My only concern is that I wear narrow/medium and these feel too wide on my foot...

Thank you for your feedback. This shoe's last is indeed a narrow/medium fit. The leather is very soft and because the shoes are handmade - and also because every foot is different - this could contribute to the feeling that the shoe is not quite as snug as desired. We can certainly make a custom shoe for you to make it fit snugger and narrower. Contact us privately and we'l be glad to assist you.
