Dance shoes are probably the most important garment for the dancer. Good dancing shoes are characterized by quality materials and above all, for its sound.
In the market there are numerous materials for flamenco shoes. For a good quality shoe we advise that the shoe is a Spanish product and that it should made out of suede or natural leather....
The Flamenco semiprofessional shoe is the footwear that the beginners in Flamenco dance opt for. .These Flamenco shoes are cheaper than the artisanal or professional ones, but they remain within the semi-professional range. They also vary in material and quality.
How can we recognize a semi-professional quality shoe? As this is the most common question our clients make, we leave a summary of the characteristics and qualities that should have a semi-professional quality shoe.
Origin: In TAMARA Flamenco we never work with footwear of an Asian origin and we do not advise anyone to consume dance shoes with this origin due to the poor quality of materials and incorrect assembly and production that cause the product to deteriorate quickly and makes the heels break or peel off easily. In TAMARA, we consider that the best quality seal that a Flamenco shoe can have is the "Made in Spain” seal. No one will manufacture a Flamenco shoe, product originating in our land, with the same quality and professionalism of a shop or factory in Spain.
Materials: The most recommended materials will always be cowhide or suede. It is certain that plastic, fabric or imitation buckskin are completely disregarded, which in the short term will cause wounds, chafing and excessive sweating of the feet.
Material quality: the softer and flexible the suede or leather, the better the quality of the leather and it will be easier to mold. TAMARA Flamenco advises to disregard shoes with leather that is too rigid or harsh because they are difficult to mold.
Inner pad: If it has an interior pad, this will make the shoe more convenient and comfortable for the feet because it will cushion the foot against the ground. It is important that the pad is made out of leather with a proper foot perspiration.
The heel: A wooden heel, will have a better sound than a plastic one. This quality is also very important if we want a good sound in our flamenco shoe.
The fastening method: A strap will always be better that an elastic. The economic difference is small and the belt keeps in place the grip of the instep in order to avoid our foot to separate itself from the dancing shoe. It is very important that the strap is made of leather or suede to avoid cuts or wounds that may eventually may be caused by a plastic strap.

Professional brand shoes Begoña Cervera comes from its founder's passion for the Flamenco dance, design and fashion. Almost at the beginning of the company, the founder of Tamara Flamenco and Begoña Cervera met. Realizing that they share the same ideals, they begin to work together and today we are proud to say that after a long journey of 15 years, the Begoña shoes continue focusing mainly on strengthening the values that have always characterized TAMARA Flamenco: Craftsmanship, quality and the "Made in Spain” quality seal.
The Begoña Cervera brand always remains a part of the most important fashion events and Flamenco. Each year new footwear styles are designed to suit all the requests and needs of our dancers. Annually they surpass themselves providing innovation in the Flamenco footwear which turns it more and more into a piece of design and craftsmanship, the latest one, in 2014 they introduced to the world the painted flamenco heel, wooden heels custom made by a group of painters that reflected on the heels, famous paintings recognized within the world of art. This great, innovative and creative idea was so popular that the brand continues to create new heel designs each year based on the ideas and suggestions of professionals and dancers using the brand.
To help you recognize a professional shoe, TAMARA Flamenco will provide you with a summary of all the qualities and characteristics that a professional shoe must have:
Sole: Double sole and inner pad:
1st Sole: The first sole is divided into two parts. The half that is in contact with the ground is white and is made of a material called spay. Specially designed to grip the floor well and avoid slipping. The other half corresponds to the part of the bridge, it is hard leather and sewn by hand. This gives a great boost to the bridge and the heel.
2nd sole: It is brown (although sometimes it is painted black), it’s an intermediate layer that helps cushion the impact of the strike on the joints when we're dancing.
Inner suede pad: It is extremely soft and is made out of suede, in order to avoid excessive foot sweating with the heat and it absorbs sweat better than any other pad. This cushioned insole is designed with various reliefs in order to adapt perfectly to the dancer’s foot.
The professional shoe range should have more nails for a stronger and cleaner sound with a better formation and a perfect filling. Because of the professional shoe’s perfect finish, they make less damage to the floorboard and wooden floors.
The most professional Flamenco shoes are always handmade and 100% Spanish. Only the extensive experience of our shoemakers ensures durability, quality and an incomparable sound.
Various options to create a perfect shoe that fits your needs:
Models: The Begoña Cervera trade has up to 75 different designs for you to be able to be yourself, you can always find the perfect model for you.
Heel: choose the shape (Cuban, classic or reel), finishing (same material as the rest of the shoe, light wood or dark wood), height (5 cm, 6 cm and 7 cm) and design if it’s painted (you have many designs to choose from and you can also request for your name to be painted on your heels if you want to customize them further.)
Material: A professional shoe should always be made of leather and above all it should have great quality (usually cowhide). This ensures the strength and durability that characterizes the professional range. Currently Begoña Cervera offers other than the usual suede and leather, more exclusive skins such as snake, crocodile, alligator or leopard skins as well as patent leather in attractive colors (although we suggest that the latter two ranges, fantasy skins and patent leather, should have a more limited use or that they should be used for the stage because the surface layer of these skins is more delicate).
Additionally, if you choose a shoe with different parts, do not miss the opportunity offered by Begoña Cervera, to combine different colors and materials in the same shoe.
Another option that Begoña Cervera offers is to embroider your shoe with polka dots, with already created flower patterns or with your name on the sides of your shoes to make them even more custom made. With Begoña Cervera, the limit is your imagination.
Colors: The professional shoes have a wide variety of colors, almost as much as you can imagine because its craftsmanship will suit your needs. If you do not find your color in the color chart write to us and we will search for it ;).
Fastening your shoe: Having such a wide variety of models, the customer can choose any required fastening: strap, double strap, triple strap, laces, velcro, ankle ribbons or elastic. All are functional and the fastening method chosen will depend on the preferences of each person.
Sizes: From number 32 to 43.5. A professional shoe should fit your feet perfectly therefore the Begoña Cervera shoes come in half sizes and with a difference of only 3 to 4 millimeters per size.
Widths: In the footwear workshops it is known how important it can be the width of a shoe and therefore craftsmanship workshops at Begoña Cervera offer 3 different widths to fit all types of feet. You can choose from: normal width, double width (similar to the width of a larger foot size than yours) and width dome (double width in the shape of the shoe and also a wider toe)
Remember that, if all these features aren’t met, a shoe can never be 100% professional.
Important: TAMARA Flamenco is an official Begoña Cervera distributor and therefore we offer a guaranteed minimum price. If you find it cheaper elsewhere, we will refund the difference ;).
