Bandolera (now Tangolera)

Novara - Black Lace & Copper Metallic 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.

Axis Tango

The shoes are so beautiful and comfortable I told Charles that I wanted to wear them to bed. His personal care and counseling helped me to purchase the right shoe for my needs. This concern touched me deeply. I will definitely use Axis again and will recommend them to my friends.

Thank you so much for such a great review and feedback! We are delighted you are happy!
