For wider feet

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.

Fit Like a Glove!

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!

Sara M.

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!

Beautiful little black tango shoes

I absolutely love these shoes. The custom heel height and wide fit is completely perfect for me, thanks in large part to the most attentive customer service possible! These will be one of the most versatile pairs of shoes in my tango wardrobe. Once we can really start dancing again, I know they will be one of my main go-to's (like, if I'm travelling and only have room to pack 1 pair!) Thank you Gaia and Charles, and Tangolera, once again!

Janet Lee

I love the shoes! The shoes are beautiful and high quality! Unfortunately they are still too big for my small and skinny feet. I’m on the narrow and thin side when it comes to tango shoes. I think I need custom shoes especially made for me.
