If something is worth knowing, it is worth knowing it well. For this reason, in this article we will discuss in detail how women’s tango shoes are structured.
All shoes have four components:
The heel is attached to the sole with glue and nails.
Between the insole and the sole, there is a metal plate (a piece of metal) to support the arch (the metal plate is shorter in tango shoes compared to other dance shoes, to provide flexibility).
There is normally some padding on the top of the insole; however, in the tango shoes, this padding is thicker than in normal shoes, to offer more comfort.
The insole is attached to the sole with glue, however tango shoes it is further reinforced with nails to provide structural stability.
There are three types of soles:
Every pair of shoes may have the sole that the dancer prefers for his dancing style, or for different types of floors, the sole then should not protrude past the shoe (making a circle).
The vamps can be made of different materials:
Regina Tango Shoes knows well the components of this type of shoes and was able to blend style, elegance and practicality in its models.
This is because it is well known that the tango would not be tango without beautiful shoes and, for the women, the heel is essential.
However, it is also well known that by wearing high heel shoes, there is a high price to be paid as the dancer’s health is affected. It must be noted that the body is a finely balanced instrument, and wearing inappropriate shoes can dramatically change this balance, potentially causing stress points in many areas on the body.
There are almost 100 common injuries affecting dancers. In order to avoid injuries related to the tango dance, or better yet, to minimize the likelihood of injury, you first need to wear shoes as good in quality as those made by Regina Tango Shoes and you should always perform stretching exercises, in particular for the calves, before and after dancing.
