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.
Still not sure? Purchase more than one size (shipping both ways is free in US), try in the comfort of your home, and return the pair that doesn't fit with our free & easy returns.
And lastly: We provide sizing information as a guide only and not as a guarantee. Returns due to sizing and fit issues are subject to Axis Tango return policy and won't be given any exceptions.
