A great selection of Irish dancing jig shoes from Antonio Pacelli, Hullachan, Rutherford and Fays. Jig shoes can also be called heavy shoes, hard shoes, treble shoes and even Riverdance shoes. So if you are looking for a pair of these you have come to the right place!
We have everything from the perfect beginner shoe to the latest styles such as the Hullachan Ultralite.
We suggest young beginners start in the Superflexi which has a leather sole. These offer the best levels of support, which is needed until the Irish dancer’s arches become stronger through practice.
We recommend intermediate dancers go for a style with a black suede sole. There are quite a few to choose from and which one to go for depends on your budget and what tips and heels you would like on your hard shoes. The Antonio Pacelli Ultraflexi offers a choice of tips and heels from Leinster to the more extremely loud Liberty tip.
Advanced dancers are increasingly going for an Ultralite style, which is a lighter, more flexible jig shoe. These are extremely flexible right out of the box and you can toe stand in them straight away. However, it is important to note that they do not last as long as normal black suede sole jig shoes and you should be prepared to replace them more often.
For dancers who want ultimate comfort then we suggest the Hullachan Ultralite which has the most advanced comfort features of any jig shoe. The jig shoes have clever insoles which is a dual layer insole with a comfort and shock absorbency layer. They also a padded ankle and heel collar.
Our Ultra Light range was recently launched at the 2014 American Irish Dancing Championships in Montreal, Canada. This is the lightest of all our shoes, designed for dancers who do not want to have to break in new shoes enabling toe stands from time of purchase. Although lightweight in nature, the Ultra Lights will not overstretch and come with the durability expected from Fays Quality Irish Dancing Shoes.
The latest advances and addition to our quality shoe range. The Ultra Lights are the lightest of all our shoes, designed for dancers who do not want to have to break in new shoes. The heel stiffeners have been reduced to avoid blisters. The Ultra Lights are also made from more lightweight and flexible materials enabling toe stands from time of purchase. Ultra Lights come with Hi-tech heels for that extra sharp sound.
We recommend ordering the Ultra Lights a half size smaller than your regular shoes size for a tighter fitting.
