HOW TO DETERMINE YOUR SHOE SIZE?
Measure your foot with a ruler and a measuring tape. See the "Measuring Tips" below to make sure that you measure your feet correctly.
Check your size from the size tables above. Our sizes are standard in EU sizing system.
If your exact size does not exist on the table you can either choose the closest size (select the greater, not the smaller size) or you can place a Custom Order for shoes that will be made exactly for your feet's measurements.
Example: If you are a woman with foot length 24 cm and metatarsa girth 22 cm, you should definitely consider a custom order. If you are a woman with foot length 25 cm, and metatarsa girth 22 cm, then you can consider buying a size 39 (EU).
Measuring the length of your foot
Take a piece of paper and stand with your full weight on it. Shift your weight a bit forward to flatten your foot. You can place your right next to a wall for the correct position as seen in the image below.
Take a pencil and draw around your foot as close as possible. Make sure the pencil is perpendicular to the paper.
Measure between the toe and the heel as a straight line as shown in the picture below.
Make sure you measure both feet separately. Many people have different feet.
Your feet swell and expand when you dance. If you can measure your feet after dancing or when they are otherwise swollen that will be much better and more realistic.
When measuring the girth (circumference) of your meta-tarsa, use a tape measurer and roll it around the widest part of your foot, not too tight, not too loose, as in the example below:
Pont is the heel height of the shoes. The value of "Pont" changes as the shoe size change.
For example, 13 pont heel of a size 40 shoe is 8,7 cm and 13 pont heel of a size 35 shoe is 8,2 cm.
11 Pont: 7 - 7,5 cm (~3")
13 Pont: 8,2 - 8,7 cm (~3.5")
15 Pont: 9,8 - 10,4 cm (~4")
IMPORTANT: In our online store, shoes heels sizes are 13 Pont in all product photos.
With other heel-heights the shoes will look different because the shapes are different; as you can see below.
ErgoFlex: Super Comfortable Sole with Suede Cover
This is a superb option for those who prefer feeling the ground perfectly with feather-weight tango shoes. You will feel as if they are not there!
It is a good choice for experienced milongueras & milongueros and professionals. It is perfect for glamorous performances as it allows the ultimate flexibility and points & flexes.
This sole provides a good grip on the surface thanks to its suede cover, but has much less friction than neolyte soles. We use one layer of cushioning in this sole type to let you feel the ground as much as possible for a perfect and natural feeling of balance.
It is ideal to use this type of sole on a dance floor. Non-ideal surfaces (concrete, outdoors, etc.) may damage this sole quickly. It is a performance tool; a very good and elegant choice for intense dancing.
Standard Sole: Neolyte Rubber
Neolyte is a durable, rubber-based material that provides a firm but elastic structure. When compared to hard leather, neolyte is much more elastic, more ergonomic, comfortable and it is suitable for long hours of dancing.
It is a good choice for beginners, experienced milongueras & milongueros and professionals. Neolyte, unlike leather, is also good at enduring a certain level of wetness/humidity.
This sole has a good grip on the surface, but also allows pivots easily. It works well with the cushioning to support your feet.
Additionally, neolyte is also good for dancing on non-ideal, non-wood surfaces as it is both durable and provides an ideal level of friction.
