Turquoise tango shoes are designed and handmade in Istanbul by a team of dancers and shoemakers, committed to creating comfortable, light and beautiful footwear for dancers around the world.
Having danced tango for over a decade, we the owners of Turquoise, can say that we have spent a fortune on tango shoes. We went shoe shopping in many countries, only finding some shoes to be far from elegant, others to be designed without proper understanding of anatomy or geometry; some to have balance issues while others to be lacking the comfort so essential for every tanguero wanting to dance for hours at milongas and festivals.
Our shoe shopping experience has led us all to the same conclusion that “good enough is not enough”. So we decided to create our own line of tango shoes, personally testing them on some of the busiest dance floors, to see if that ideal combination of quality, durability and elegance could be achieved.
At Turquoise, we believe that perfection is a journey, which – just like tango – evolves continuously. And just as dancers work on improving their technique, the Turquoise team constantly strives to improve the shoes.
Detail oriented and quality focused, we do our best to turn every single pair into a little masterpiece.
To ensure a perfect fit, Turquoise tango shoes come in half sizes, which is not often the case with many other top tango shoe brands.
