Tango Shoes

為應付舞蹈中的旋轉與跳躍,一雙高品質的探戈舞鞋會採用真皮材料以傳統手工製作。真皮皮料大致可分兩種:軟皮及硬皮。軟皮是鉻鞣皮,用於衣服、包袋、鞋面、沙發等的面料;而硬皮是植鞣革 Vage Leather,常用於皮帶、手工雕刻皮具,少數亦有用於高檔訂製男鞋鞋面(新鞋時較硬但非常耐穿)。一般植鞣革再經特殊處理最後成為烤焦皮或硬烤皮,最為厚重、結實,用於馬鞍、槍套、鞋底等需要耐磨的皮具。

同樣是真皮材料,不同的動物皮料因特性不同,價格與品質也不一樣。有些皮製品可能為降低成本使用便宜的豬鞣革或豬皮內裡,其毛孔較為粗大不雅;在傳統皮具大本營的歐洲,好的皮製品多會使用頂級的黃牛鞣革,皮面毛孔細緻且耐用。南美洲因在野外放牧飼養牛隻,不論墨西哥、阿根廷、巴西、烏拉圭、智利的皮料常有較多蟲斑與傷痕,因而成為黃牛皮中的便宜之選。

FELIPE.H 堅持最好用料,男鞋面料使用柔韌並俱,最適合跳舞又耐操的胎牛皮,或有義大利的高檔平紋牛皮;內裡則是舒適透氣的高檔台灣黃牛皮,鞋大底更是採用黃牛植鞣革硬烤皮,並搭配組合木跟。在室內跳舞並良好保養的狀況下,一般可使用多年。

Elegance. Quality. Attitude


From the Pampas to the ports, from the brothels to the salons, from the underground to the stage - “Argentine Tango” has slowly crept its way up the social ladder and is now a part of the world’s intangible cultural heritage. People who dance Argentine Tango, the “tangueros”, spend nights in the milongas, dancing a dance of elegance and passion. The perfect pair of tango shoes is the prized possession of any tanguero.

As a professional tango dancer, Felipe Hsieh fully understands the importance of a good-quality pair of shoes for walking. His background in mechanical engineering and industrial design has also given him an eye for details and proportions. For years he has had the vision of creating the perfect pair of shoes that in function, combines comfort and flexibility with the sturdiness and durability, and in design, incorporates the elegance of traditional tango shoes with a modern, sophisticated touch.

With a passion for design and the skilful hands of an experienced shoemaker, the result is a pair of understated luxuries that can easily be weared to anywhere by anybody who pays attention to the elegance and the quality.

INITIAL TANGO - The tango ideogram writing system
by Felipe Hsieh

Tango is a body conversation between partners, a language of the heart. And a language will die if it is no longer used. It could die even easier if there are no written words to record it.

It shall be suitable for every leader and follower, from beginners level to advanced; it also can be used for all the different school styles of Tango. “Tango” is no longer just a language you can speak and listen to.
