A SPACE FOR FLAMENCO LOVERS
Here you will find a selection of my favorite dance products.
Some of these I have designed to fulfill my own needs, others are simply my favorite picks from the best brands in the market.
All of the shoes that I have picked are handmade by "Menkes" in Spain.
Menkes was one of the first brands to make flamenco shoes, they began in 1950 and continues to be one of the best on the market and used by many famous flamenco artists. My mother, who was also a flamenco dancer, used them and I have used them since I was a little girl.
One of my favorite characteristics of these shoes is the sound they make. The flamenco shoe is an instrument that creates music and the clarity of the sound is very important. Another characteristic I like is the shoe's fit which is very feminine and comfortable.
... I hope these small insights are as useful to you as they have been to me.
