origins of Comme il Faut
Since Comme il Faut - Buenos Aires opened its doors
in the Rue des Artisans, it established its dominance
with an identity all its own. This historic street
of the city, evocative of Paris yet quintessentially
Buenos Aires, lined with art galleries and artisans
shops, is the ideal place for the design, display
and marketing of Comme il Faut footwear - heels that
aren't just heels, but unique works of art.
tango dance and habitué of Buenos Aires milongas,
started making shoes for herself and her friends,
believing that traditional tango shoes lacked attractive
designs, while fashion shoes lacked the characteristics
dancing requires. In January 2003, she became partners
with Raquel Coltrinari, also an habitué of
Buenos Aires milongas, and thus starts Comme il Faut
(French for "as it must be", and the title
of a classic tango by Eduardo Arolas). Before long,
they began to receive orders from top professional
dancers and connoisseurs, and from women seeking shoes
of the highest quality that draw attention to their
feet and show off their legs with sensuality, elegance
The secret lies
in the brand's three pillars: design, quality of materials
and superior craftsmanship, giving the shoes unique
characteristics of comfort and reliability on dance
floor. Every pair constitutes an aesthetic object
that brings beauty, style and function into harmony.
Designed and made by dancers, for dancers, Comme il
Faut offers a unique combination of stability, comfort
and stunning looks, brought together by the good taste

in limited quantities, making every customer the collector
of an exclusive item.

fans, not just in Buenos Aires but all over the world,
ensuring that in addition to the proven comfort they
offer, "Comme ilFaut shoes make women's legs
more beautiful." Even women who don't dance have
taken notice and add chapter to the brand's success
story as they show off their heels on the street.

shoes while they enjoy themselves. The name of luxury
