Flamenco dance shoes

Bailaoras dancing flamenco

Flamenco bailaores are considered percussionists that play music with their feet while they dance. Their instrument is the special flamenco footwear that has nails in the soles of the heels and the toes. The metal material of the nails makes that particular sound when bailaores hit the wood floor.

There are several kinds of heels that the bailaor will choose depending on what they find more comfortable: the traditional heel, the cubano and the carrete or garrucha. The height of the heel can vary from 2 cm. to 7 cm. Nowadays, flamenco shoe producers offer a wide variety of colors and fabrics for the shoes.

There are many stores in Madrid where you can find them: Gallardo, Senovilla, Artefyl, Luna Flamenca and Menkes located in the center of the city.

We kindly invite you to go to a tablao flamenco where you will see bailaores perform. And, to live the night in the very Spanish style, order some tapas and some wine! You’ll definitely have fun!
