    “Tango is a feeling that is danced.” Shoes with good traction are a bad idea. Slippery-bottom (hard plastic or leather) heels with straps to hold them while walking backwards usually work well. As do leather bottom dress shoes of any kind. Nice, thick socks work wonderfully and are my personal preference.
