They are soft and flexible like ballroom shoes and have the character and support tango shoes. They can be used not only in tango but also in salsa, ballroom and other partner dances. And for the classically trained, yes, you can point your feet in them. Within days upon trying them on, they mold to your feet like gloves.

They’re perfect for all occasions: whether it’s for many hours of practice, teaching, social dancing, or for exhibition.

Turquoise Shoes – Handmade in Istanbul

Turquoise are tango shoes 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 for more than a decade, Turquoise owners have spent a fortune on shoes, buying them in different countries, finding some less than elegant, others constructed without proper understanding of anatomy or geometry; some lacking in balance others in the comfort necessary to dance for hours at milongas and festivals. Deciding that “good enough is not enough,” Turquoise owners resolved to create their own line of shoes, testing them personally at milongas to ensure that they achieved the right combination of quality, durability, and elegance.
Turquoise believes that perfection is an on-going journey, just like tango, which evolves continuously. And just as dancers work to improve their technique, Turquoise strives constantly to perfect their shoes.
Detail oriented and dedicated, Turquoise makes each pair into a minor masterpiece. Turquoise offers numerous unique styles, and — something important to female clients — many are one of a kind. Half sizes, not available from other leading tango shoe brands, are offered at Turquoise, resulting in a perfect fit.
