Tel: 54 11 4815 5690's insider take:

"So many shoes, so little time," says the cutesy woolen sign inside this Recoleta den dedicated exclusively to tango shoes. There's nothing cutesy about the footwear created by Alicia Muñiz and partner Raquel Coltrinari, however: Each sexy creation sports three-inch heels, velvet edging, or uppers of filmy silk and patterned lamé. Clients perch on a leopard-skin sofa or a Louis XV-style chaise longue, basking under rose-tinted spotlights, while Muñiz and Coltrinari bring in dozens of their designs, each more vibrant and sensual than the last. Within minutes, the floor is littered with mountains of suede, silk and leather, lace tassels, and blood-red ribbons—so attractive that most clients leave with several pairs.

Open Mondays through Fridays 11 am to 7 pm, Saturdays 11 am to 3 pm.
