A beautiful flat shoe for revelling

If you LOVE high heels, please wear them and enjoy!

But if you don’t love them, please feel free wear flats.

Whatever you do, don’t wear a heeled shoe under 6cm. Regardless of pretty leathers, these are NOT sexy.

If you’re not comfortable in high heels or they make your feet hurt, then find your beauty and sexiness in buttery sensuous motion and a really pointed foot. These are things you can do much much better in a flat shoe.

By flat I mean a shoe that does not have a hard tapered heel. Any kind of shoe that has a bit of rubber under the heel will help with your elasticity.

Ballet slippers, jazz shoes, and dance sneakers have a “split sole” which allows you to get a really good point to your foot. (They don’t do this for you, but if you make an effort your foot will easily look great!) You can have very beautiful feet.

Here are the options for flat shoes:

  • Ballet slippers have absolutely no padding and support for your foot, which feels great to some people and uncomfortable to others.
  • Dance sneakers have lots of support and elasticity, but the problem is they look terrible with skirts. If you usually dance in pants, go for a dance sneaker. The most attractive ones are made by the French company, Sansha.(I’m not saying all their shoes are attractive, but they have a few very nice models).
  • Here’s a sneaker looks delicate and beautiful with skirts. It’s the Sansha Jazz Machine #JS46C. Only €17!

Here’s the new Model, JS46C:

In the interim, I recommending a few designers and shops that I love, and curating their collections just for you.



Power is the courage, confidence, and competence to make things happen. I want to create in a way that’s incomparable and define my own compensation package. You too?

Syntax of Power is a raw, potent, and spare revelation of how I got to where I am and how I take on the struggle every day.

This book is not about tango, it’s about everything else.

It’s about stepping into the darkness of change, learning how to take care of yourself, and making things happen.

Dyv stands for Duro y Vio. We were inspired by a 2007 conference at Harvard University about tango as a transnational culture. Also we wanted to create something that would help people to imagine a queerer tango. We forbid ourselves to use the word ‘passion’ and instead tried to articulate the experience more precisely.

Argentine Tango is more than an elaborate and difficult dance, it is an international culture of intimacy, desire, and dignity. No mere romance or memoir, the intricately woven stories evoke tango’s true mysteries … the elation, the frustration, the compulsion…

We published the book in 2009. Dancers asked “how did you know what I was feeling?”

Silences in history. Silences by code. Silences of fear. You already know that Tango’s silences can be sublime and they can be devastating.

What I do in my blog is use myself as a lens – sometimes a microscope, sometimes a telescope. I try to be as honest with myself and you as words concede. Then I try to find a deeper meaning and imagine a pathway for us.

A blog post can be a fragment, a wisp of inspiration, an outline for thinking. A book must complete and reconcile it all. Now I drag the social scientist to the scene to enumerate the facts of the case, the mystery which brought both stardom and tragedy to my life.
