Amy's was founded by Amy Krishnaswamy in 2014 with a mission to shake up the tango shoe market. We are a boutique for tango and occasion shoes, with carefully picked brands chosen to meet the exacting demands of dancers and brides-to-be. We are proud to have served hundreds of customers over the years, from all over the country and around the world. Our clients include tango dancers, ballroom, salsa, kizomba and blues dancers, brides and bridesmaids, tango teachers and performers, DJs, musicians and several West End theatres.
When we started, dancers were having to choose between pinning their hopes on expensive stilettos or making do with cheap latin dance shoes. The market was divided between fine shoe houses relying on loyalty and provenance; and a plethora of latin and ballroom shoe shops stocking a small range of tango shoes but with little in-house tango expertise. Many retailers did not offer a returns policy so tangueras were stuck with their purchases even if they didn't fit. The market for used tango shoes is testament to this and we hear so many stories of wardrobes full of shoes that can't be worn because they are too high, too thin underfoot or just too uncomfortable to wear.
So how do we strive to be different?
