A great selection of Irish dancing jig shoes from Antonio Pacelli, Hullachan, Rutherford,Feis Fayre 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 newer styles such as the Hullachan Ultralite and Flexi Pro.
Beginners now have the choice of the Superflexi or the Essential jig shoes. New dancers and parents should read our help guide below to understand which style might be best for them.
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 range of tips and heels for all levels, from the Leinster tip and heel to the more extremely loud Liberty tip - Concorde heel combination.
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 the Ultralite range does not last as long as normal black suede sole jig shoes (Hullachan Ultralite excepted as this is made from slightly stronger materials than other Ultralites) and you should be prepared to replace them more often. Buy them close fitting but be careful. Buying them too small will result in the heel collapsing and making them unwearable.
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.
