Let's kick the idea that historical shoes were plain and boring! Meet our famous Tango Boots, reproduction late-Victorian, Edwardian, and 1920s boots with sexy 3 inch / 7.6 cm French heels, almond-shaped toes, and the iconic lace-up closure through serpentine tabs running up the leg. Yes, these were all the rage in the early 20th century!
Wear them with historical dress or with modern outfits for some serious Historybounding, playful vibes. As well as historically accurate attire, Tango boots are perfect for Lolitas, Goths, Steampunks, Witches, and Cosplayers.
Tango boots do not extend to the calf muscle, but should have a good fit around your ankle. Here are some helpful measurements, based on US size 8; note that measurements scale a little based on size:
Shaft Height - 7.5 inches / 19 cm
Top Circumference (laced edge-to-edge) - 9 inches / 22.8 cm
Smallest Ankle Measurement (laced edge-to-edge) - 8.5 inches / 21.6 cm
Tango Boots are designed to be worn with a gap between the tabs.
