Comme il faut (the shoes)
by Simba tango
What I do understand:
People (men and women) are crazy about these shoes. They look (and are) extremely sharp, sexy, are light and well balanced. In other words perfect for dancing. An image of exclusivity also helps, although it has faded a little the last few years.
What I don’t understand:
Why the competition hasn’t caught up. It surely can’t be that hard? After all, we are not talking rocket science. They are pricey, so one would think others were ready to dig into that market as well. They only offer a small number of different models, and vary the color combinations, and they wear out quite fast as far as I have noticed. That is good for business, though, and should be easy to copy…
There is this fascinating tech reporting style dissection of womans’ shoes at Royce’s tango thoughts. Wonder if she noticed any difference between the Comme il fauts and the others.
The photo can be seen as my homage to ‘probably the best tango shoes in the world’.
