Women's shoes: size guide and shapes
Here you can find the size chart of our tango shoes with foot length and circumference by size. These measures have been taken on the "last", which is the chalk or resin foot around which a shoe is mounted (in green resin in the photo).
Your measurements should be taken while standing on a paper and drawing around your foot with a pencil held perpendicularly to the floor. The length is the line connecting your longest toe to the back of your heel. The circumference should be taken with a tailor tape and measured around the foot in its widest point, as shown in the photo.
|Shape width: foot circumference in mm|
|EU Size||Length mm||S standard||N narrow||F flat||W wide|
Half sizes are not available. We believe that the different choices of shapes are enough to cater all kinds of feet. In the past we have produced shoes in the half size, but the sole was the same of the base size (which means - for example - that shoes in size 37.5 were as long as size 37, but a bit wider). The current fit corresponds to size 37 in wide shape (W).
Standard shape S (formerly marked as 13)
It is the most common shape, with a comfortable sole fitting most foot types, particularly an egyptian-shaped foot, where the big toe is longer than the others.
Narrow shape N (formerly marked as 11)
The shoe sole is narrow and with a triangular shape and fits slim and thin feet. Particularly suitable to a greek-shaped foot, where the second toe is longer than the others. Same length as the standard shape, but with reduced volume.
Wide shape W (formerly marked as 15)
Suitable to particularly wide and square-shaped feet. The upper is mounted on the same sole as the standard but around a bigger last, increasing the shoe volume.
Flat shape F
Recommended to those who have slim feet with a low bridge height, but not particularly narrow in width and with a rounded rather than a triangular shape. Although the shape of the sole is the same as the standard, shoes have a reduced volume in the upper for a snugger fit.
