Hello, As I mentioned in other posts I'm new to tango. I love so much about this dance including the shoes. I bought a pair of Madam Pivot tango shoes and when I received them I thought I was in heaven. They are stunning, fit like a glove and the quality is very high. Buying over the internet I found the communication with the company was excellent. I wanted another pair and decided to try Odile although I was hesitant because I knew I had a good thing with Madam Pivot. My Odile shoes just arrived and they are a far cry from the quality and beauty of Madam Pivot. They're OK but it's not a close call - Madam Pivot is the way to go at least for me. In case anyone is considering buying from either of these brands that's my experience. The only other company I'll try eventually is Turquoise.
