This is one of the most common questions we receive. We appreciate that it can be difficult and somewhat stressful trying to choose the right size when shopping online. This is why we have done everything possible to give our customers very clear, step be step, instructions about how to choose the right size. But we do not stop there! As soon as you place your order, depending on the product you have chosen and measurements entered, a member of the Flamencista customer service team may contact you to validate the information you have entered.
There are always a few things that you can do to help with this process such as measuring your feet more than once, asking someone else to do it for you, including your standard shoe size or the size of other flamenco shoes you have. We then cross-reference all this information to ensure the right flamenco shoe is made for you.
We will support you 100% during the ordering process to make you feel completely confident about your final choice.

They are 100% handmade in Spain by experts who have been practicing their craft for many years.
All our flamenco shoes and clothes are made to measure after your order is placed. This why we do not ask the customers to choose a size based on pre-populated conversion tables. Instead we ask for your measurements in centimetres so that the right product is produced for you. To give you an example, in a few cases we have produced different size left and right shoe for customers to cater for their different shaped feet. Our flamenco skirts are tailor made based on your exact body measurements. We are the only online flamenco shop in the world that provides this service!
In addition, you can make your own flamenco shoes or customise your flamenco skirt by choosing from a wide range of material, colour and designs to create unique styles.
Yes they are. They are made to measure so we produce shoes for all feet widths from the smallest to the very widest.
The “flamenco legend” not only is wearing our flamenco shoes but also has contributed to their design to ensure perfect sound quality and unique performance! Manuela Carrasco adores 2 models.

Manuela Carrasco has many pairs of flamenco shoes depending on her mood and type of performance. Her favourite colour is red although she may wear different colours depending on the colour of her flamenco dress. She prefers a standard 5cm heel but occasionally she opts for a taller Carrete heel. In terms of material, she prefers leather shoes for practice sessions and suede for performances.
Now you have a unique insight into the great performer’s preferences! You can enjoy this video with Manuela Carrasco wearing our shoes.

Production and delivery times vary. Items in stock such as most flamenco accessories, can be available immediately but tailor made items will take longer. It is important to note that products such as flamenco shoes and flamenco skirts are 100% handmade after you place your order to ensure they fit your perfectly. Therefore production times can take several days. You can get an indication of our timescales by visiting our standard production times section. So far 100% of our orders have been prepared to or before our stated the standard production times. In some rare occasions we may have flamenco shoes in stock, in which case we will show it on our web site.
Delivery times really depend on the destination country. We cannot guarantee times as it heavily depends on local authorities (such as customs) and delivery companies. Again you can get an indication of shipping times in our production and delivery times page.
One of the advantages when shopping from Flamencista is that each flamenco product will be shipped to you when it is ready. This means that products in stock or with short production times will be delivered sooner than products with longer production time. To give you an example if you order a pair of shoes and a skirt, you will receive the skirt first. Although this approach is not cost effective for us it is something that our customers prefer so we have decided to make it standard practice. You can get an indication of production times by product in our production and delivery times page.
