Beautiful shoes for tango dancers and brides
Turquoise Shoes are famous for being visually stunning, a bit quirky and different from most tango shoes, without sacrificing comfort and good engineering. Their unique creations are handmade in Istanbul and sold all over the world.
After years of not finding the right shoes for tango, Baris Sozen, Hande Orhan and Hasan Seremet started their own shoe line, focussing on fit, comfort and knockout style. Since 2014 they have designed for Dancing With the Stars USA with the show's official shoe supplier, Worldtone Dance.
The shoes are lightweight but stable, with comfy padding, soft soles and full leather lining. Each shoe is decorated with a butterfly on the buckle. They refresh core designs regularly and produce many limited edition models each season using stunning colours and unusual materials. Turquoise Leon shoes for men feature soft soles and stylish designs with beautiful detail and finishing.

Mr Tango Shoes is owned by Jorge Nel Giraldo and Sandra Milena Buitrago. A dancer and teacher for over 30 years, Jorge Nel has been in countless tango films and shows. He even has a day named after him - 15th May in Florida is Jorge Nel day! Sandra Milena is a lifelong dancer, a national champion in Tango Salon and a passionate supporter of Colombian tango talent.
Son of a shoemaker, Jorge Nel has been creating shoes since 1990. Made in Manizales, Colombia, his team use local leathers known for being buttery soft and strong. The shoes have an exceptionally sturdy shank, user friendly heels and wonderful padding. The attention to detail is superb - pretty shapes, secure straps (no flimsy elastic!) and full leather lining. Their mens shoes are works of art - strong, comfortable creations with leather inside and out.
