Serpentina Lila

£165.00 inc. VAT

Enter the milonga with a dazzling flourish! This tango shoe is unique, featuring an intricately detailed, woven leather toe strap in lilac. Skilled leather weavers in Spain braid each front strap individually by hand. This is a local heritage craft of Alicante where our shoes are made.

The woven leather vamp is flexible and molds to the shape of your foot. However, the edges of the front strap are reinforced with lining to maintain the shoe’s snug fit and elegant form.

‘Serpentinas’ are colourful paper streamers that decorate festivals throughout Latin America. Listen to the tango ‘Serpentina de Esperanza’ by Angel D’Agostino and let your mind wonder through the Carnival of Buenos Aires…

Note: We recommend this shoe mostly for milongas or light practice. Although designed to last, the nature of the braided leather doesn’t lend it self for heavy dance training.
