Jig Shoe: FAQ

Here are answers to the most common jig shoe questions we get asked by email!


Best Jig Shoe for Beginners?

We would recommend the Superflexi for younger dancers or those with little experience of dance. The Superflexi offers great support to the ankles and foot tendons whilst still being flexible in all the right places. The Superflexi comes with Leinster tips and Leinster heels which are perfect for beginners or dancers who are not competing at a senior level.

Best value for money?

The Superflexi jig shoe with Leinster tips and heels. Available in a choice of widths, it offers a great sound for those experimenting with Irish dance or who are on a limited budget.

Best Jig Shoe for Open/Championship dancers?

These dancers have been dancing long enough to make up their own mind on this one! It totally depends on the individual dancer and the shape of their feet. However have you seen the new Hullachan Ultralite Jig Shoe? This style of jig shoe is the new favourite amongst top dancers.

Narrowest jig shoe?


Widest jig shoe?

The Superflexi and Ultraflexi jig shoes both come with a wide fitting option.

Best jig shoe for getting on your toes?

Any of the black suede sole jig shoes will allow you to do this.

Best jig shoe for dancer's with injuries?

We would recommend the Superflexi if you require additional support in the arch area.

Best jig shoe for comfort features?

We would recommend the Hullachan Ultralite Jig Shoe as it has a padded heel collar, padded insole, padded tongue and blister ease heels.

I need a sizing guide!

'Excellent service...we changed the shoes 3 times but nothing was a problem for the staff who sent the last pair by special delivery as we had a competition the next day.'
