My first tango shoes

If you are starting your first tango class, we recommend that you wear trainers or flat shoes that fit well and are not too stiff, with a relatively thin sole, as you will be turning a lot. At the beginning, shoes with too high heels are not recommended, especially for women, and men should avoid shoes with too long a toe. You need shoes that will help you learn the right technique and gradually build your axis, and that will stand up to intensive use.


There are very few tango shoe retailers in Switzerland. There is, however, a shop in Zurich that sells tango shoes from popular brands such as Bandolera (Italy). You can go there and try them on:

Most experienced dancers order their shoes online. Before you place an order: Measure your feet and compare them with the size chart given for each brand.
