My name is Pernille Emborg.
When I was a young girl at 16, I went to my family doctor because sometimes my feet hurt during sport activities. The doctor told me that the pain came from having a “fallen forefoot” – Metatarsalgia, and because of that I would never be able to walk on high heels. At that time I really did not care, I was more into sport than high heels.
When I started to dance tango I started to dance on high heels and it hurt so much – it felt like walking on broken glass.
I found a very good surgical appliance maker who “rebuilt” my tango shoes, and suddenly I was able to walk without pain.
This gave me the idea to make the most comfortable tango shoes, with extra padding and a built in support for the forfoot – I hope you will love it just as much as I do
