albuquerqueNeed a change?   Caught up in the local Tango scene and needing some fresh air?

Why not try out the idea of going to a new Tango Festival or finding time for more tango travel?

The lovely benefits of meeting new dancers (and old), listening to even more beautiful music, being in a different space and feeling a new vibe, certainly can be enchanting.

 
The idea of meeting more people that are as passionate as you and just as dedicated to growth within the dance absolutely beckons.

See you in Albuquerque.

Tango shoes in Buenos Aires…the selections in the stores here are fabulous and the shoes peer out in various showcases like gorgeous, shimmering jewels waiting to be found.

animals and tango shoes 2013 019Looking in some of the windows is so exciting at some locations, while at others you have to go in and ask to see the latest trends. Some of the shops are modern, others frou frou but my favorite is the shop that is loaded with antiques and harkens back to a by-gone era.

Tango shoes come in all kinds of colours, solids or patterns,, leather, suede, patent leather, even stamped leather and fabric.

Which heel height would you like? High? Low? In the middle range?
What style of heel do you feel good in? Flared? Spike?

Does the arch fit your foot?

Sling back, full back, or T strap?

Do you prefer things that are sleek or fuzzy?

What kind of sole do you like most? Leather, non-leather, chrome, a mix of both?

Should you pay cash or use a charge card? What are the advantages to either?

Go with a friend or find your treasure on your own?

Which brand will I choose??

So many lovely questions to ask oneself when on a tango shoe hunting safari.
No wonder it takes us so long to decide on which pair after considering all of the above!

Ladies….enjoy!
