Argentinean tango and leather from the Pampa, the two essential elements in the creation of ANGELINA. An exceptional art, because nothing is like the tango, and an excellent raw material from Argentina with international fame. No other place could be better than Buenos Aires to create ANGELINA.
Tango, which was declared part of the "World Heritage Patrimony" by UNESCO in 2009, is one of the things that Buenos Aires is most well-known for abroad. It is an art that, emmerging from the banks of the Rio de la Plata river in the late 19th century, came to conquer Paris in the second decade of the 20th century, and then spread to the rest of the world. Today, thanks to this notoriety, Buenos Aires and Argentina, are recognized worldwide.
Tango is not only in the music, but also in the dance and the slang of its lyrics. It exists in the streets, in the bars and salons, and in the way the locals speak. Tango is thought, a way of being and feeling. It exists in the unique clothing, and of course, tango exist in the shoes.
Because of its unique style, temperament, presence and beauty, tango has been a great inspiration for fashion. The arts are always seeking out and complementing themselves. And this original aesthetic of tango shoes, the object of worship since their inception, are beloved by great designers and fashion celebrities.
ANGELINA combines the beauty of tango with raw materials of the highest quality, born in the Pampa fields of Argentina, in their shoes made from the fine tradition of European manufacturing that was brought by Italian immigrants at the same time as the birth of tango.
Our shoes contain the essence of art and tradition, beauty and fashion, created in the best place possible, from Buenos Aires out to the world.
