Which model to choose to dance the tango?
To dance tango, it is very important that the foot is well supported in the shoes. When you try on your tango shoes, they should therefore fit well, even a little tight. The leather will then relax slightly, more or less depending on the type of leather used.
Our models are made with different leathers. Some are more flexible than others, and will quickly adapt to the feet, or even relax a little. They are generally considered more comfortable. This is the case for suede leathers, more commonly called “suede”.
Concerning women's shoes/follower shoes, we sometimes tend to think that those with an open back are unstable and provide less support for the foot. In fact, if the straps of open-back shoes fit properly, they support the ankle very well, even during pivots. The open rear also allows your foot to move back a little more than if the rear is closed, so it fits better in the shoe whose arch better supports the arch of the foot. If you have a very arched foot, it's likely that open back shoes will be more comfortable for you.
It is of course up to you to choose.
The Croisé models are well suited to different foot widths (except very thin feet) thanks to their two adjustable crossed straps! This is the most stable model we offer because it encompasses the foot very well.
The Salomé model is the most universal of all, almost all feet feel good in it.
