about turquoise shoes 


about ferociously handmade 


Turquoise are tango shoes designed and handmade in Istanbul by a team of dancers and shoemakers committed to creating comfortable, light, and beautiful footwear for dancers around the world. 

Having danced for more than a decade, Turquoise owners have spent a fortune  on shoes, buying them in different countries, finding some less than elegant, others constructed without proper understanding of anatomy or geometry; some lacking in balance, others in the comfort necessary to dance for hours at milongas and festivals. 

Deciding that "good enough is not enough", Turquoise owners resolved to create their own line of shoes, testing them personally at milongas to ensure that they achieved the right combination of quality, durability, and elegance. 

Turquoise believes that perfection is an on-going journey just like tango, which evolves continuously. And just as dancers work to improve their technique, Turquoise strives constantly to perfect their shoes. 

Detail-oriented and dedicated, Turquoise makes each pair into a minor masterpiece. Turquoise offers numerous styles, and -- something important to female clients -- many are one of a kind. Half sizes, not available from other leading tango shoe brands, are offered at Turquoise, resulting in a perfect fit. 

Turquoise shoes have been available in many countries, earning a reputation for great comfort and superb design. Now, at last, they have come to the U.S. and Canada.

Turquoise have a flagship store in Los Angeles, but will also be available online and at festivals across North America. 


Ferociously is a tango-inspired project that hopes to be the solution to at least one of our many woes in this dance, in life. 

The idea is a simple one: to handmake bags for men and women with beautiful, unique, and durable fabrics; to match them to that pair of shoes that have helped you dance your best, be your best.

Because you just paid $200 for that new pair of shoes. Because you don't want them to get mixed up with someone else's black shoe bag. Nor with those other shoes strewn in the trunk of your car. 

You can choose custom colors and designs on our website. Or shop pre-designed, but equally distinctive, bags in our Etsy store: www.ferociouslyhandmade.etsy.com.
