Comme Il Faut

Marilyn Monroe once said, " I don't know who invented the high heel, but all women owe him a lot."


Comme il Faut, loosely translated, means "As it should be."

And it's true. Described as "the Manolo Blahniks of tango," Comme il Faut shoes are known for their super sexy appeal and smoky milonga glamour.
These unique tango shoes are designed and created by Alicia and Raquel, two visionary tangueras who wanted to bring some feminine sex appeal to the traditionally modest world of women's tango shoes. Their style is so distinctive, a Comme il Faut shoe is instantly recognizable on a crowded dance floor.
Constantly innovating, Alicia and Raquel issue new limited-edition shoe designs on a nearly weekly basis, making each shoe a practical work of art, worthy of display in any high fashion art house, yet infinitely wearable. Created by dancers for dancers, these shoes may be the most comfortable stiletto shoe you'll ever wear. Even walking backwards.


I have half a dozen Comme il fauts and I can happily acquire a dozen more. They are the most feminine, comfortable, sexy, stilettos ever made. So much so that you can dance in them for hours without your feet getting tired. Unlike pumps, they have a feminine charm. They can withstand street wear too besides the typical dance floor.
