It is a great sneaker. I am puzzled as to why you are not making them anymore Why ask me to substitute a different sneaker when this one has been great for many people.
My closet is full of shoes—tango shoes—that I don’t wear anymore. It’s not that I’ve quit tango, I'm dancing more than ever. But I purchased a pair of black Italian Milano sneakers from Axis Tango and stopped wearing any of my other shoes. The Milano black leather shoes are what I reach for every time. They are cleverly designed, functional, versatile, comfortable, vented, good for a practica and dressy enough to wear with a suit at a milonga. And they hold up. After a few years, I supposed the first pair might be wearing thin and liked them so well I ordered another pair. I now have three pair of Milano black leather tango shoes and still wear them all. They are the only dance shoes I wear. Having the “right” shoe just is not an issue anymore. Nor are sore feet. I couldn’t be more pleased. My partner feels the same way about her Bandolera shoes from Axis Tango. We both like the staff at Axis Tango and the service we receive there. It has taken a few years and some regrettable purchases to reach this point, but we are happy to share that Axis Tango now has become our sole “go to” source for high quality tango shoes.
Milano - Black Leather
This is a high quality shoe. This is the third pair I've ordered. With the second pair were improved laces. This time, however, I am disappointed. The color of the lining in the pair I received is a white patterned material that seems to be of the same quality but, instead of being dark or black like lining that came with earlier orders, this time it is lighter than the exterior of the shoe. The lining extends higher than the exterior of the shoe and shows. It creates the appearance of a lighter band or border around the opening where the foot inserts which, for me, is objectionable. I would have been pleased if the shoe had been like either of the earlier ordered pair or like the image in the catalog. Now I don't know whether to send it back or dye the objectionable material myself with some kind of permanent dye or coloring. It is not a functional issue but an appearance issue…honestly, why would they put a light lining in a black shoe like that
