“No woman needs more than one pair of shoes. But when it comes to shoes and women, the word ‘need’ doesn’t make any sense.”

—Alicia Muñiz (shoe collector, designer, and founder of Comme il Faut)

Five years ago Alicia Muñiz started making shoes for herself and her friends, believing that traditional tango shoes lacked attractive designs, while fashion shoes lacked the characteristics dancing requires. In January 2003 she became partners with Raquel Coltrinari and thus started Comme il Faut (French for “as it must be,” and the title of a classic tango by Eduardo Arolas). Before long, they began to receive orders from top professional dancers and connoisseurs, and from women seeking shoes of the highest quality that draw attention to their feet and show off their legs with sensuality, elegance, and comfort.

The secret lies in the brand’s three pillars: design, quality of materials, and superior craftsmanship, giving the shoes unique characteristics of comfort and reliability on the dance floor. Every pair constitutes an aesthetic object that brings beauty, style, and function into harmony. Designed and made by dancers for dancers, Comme il Faut offers a unique combination of stability, comfort, and stunning looks, brought together by the good taste of the brand’s designs, its daring use of color, its incorporation of novel textures, and the studied care it gives to proportion. Moreover, each design is produced only in limited quantities of just 20 pairs, making every customer the collector of an exclusive item.

If the brand is still a young one, it already accounts for a large list of fans all over the world. Even women who don’t dance have taken notice, and add a chapter to the brand’s success story as they show off their heels on the street. The name of this luxury footwear par excellence is Comme il Faut, and the shoes live up to their name: they are “as it must be.”

We also carry Delié. These are lesser known but equally high quality tango shoes from Buenos Aires. AxisTango is the only importer of Delié shoes.

We are also your distributor for Very Fine Dancesport Shoes!
