My son absolutely LOVES the new Hullachan reel shoes.  He had broken his ankle last winter and was looking for something with a little more support - yet still capable of handling champ footwork.  These shoes have been a perfect match.  He loves the slightly wider heel because it gives him more stability.  They are holding up quite well, especially considering the number of outdoor events he’s danced at this summer.  Oh, and his clicks sound loud and solid - he couldn’t ask for a better reel shoe!

My son has the shoes and has had no complaints. From a parents point of view I’m happy. They’ve lasted so much longer than the brand he’s always had and still look new all these months later. He used to be lucky to get 8 weeks out of shoes before. He’s a 16 year old open dancer who is pretty tough on his feet.
He wore them at competition straight away without any problems. They look smart on his feet and no blisters or moaning about new shoe breaking in. He thinks they are very comfy and the heels feel more secure and sound good. We recommended them to friends who’s sons are now wearing them. 
I will def be buying more when the time comes and be telling friends with boys to do the same.
Whilst they are more expensive you Defiantly get what you pay for in quality and durability.
Thumbs up from us.

My son LOVES his Hullachan Reel shoes.  One of the problems he had with other brands was the size of the heel.  Because they are not purpose-built, they are all essentially jazz shoes with a hard heel mounted post-manufacture.  When he was smaller, this wasn’t an issue, but as his feet grew,  this began to cause problems.  The heel size wasn’t always proportionate to the overall shoe size - almost like the makers were using a few sizes of heels to fit 11+ different shoe sizes.  His feet were always unstable, even with elastics.  After coming back from an ankle injury, we knew we had to find something better.  The heels on his Hullachan shoes, fit the shoe much better, providing a safer, more stable dance shoe.  The Hullachans are also made from a slightly heavier leather, which provides more support while remaining flexible enough for championship-level footwork.

And regarding durability, we couldn’t be happier!  They have lasted a full year, with minimal wear.  My son dances at countless venues - outdoor festivals in the summer, St. Patrick’s Day events, 7 hours of dance class each week, etc. - and these shoes have survived the year with him!

I bought these for my son last week. We love the design of the shoe (materials, durability)! The only issue we had with the shoes are that they are very narrow. We ordered a mens 7 and they were very narrow and a bit too long. Other than that, a very good shoe.

Boys Reel Sizing Guide

Hullachan Boys Reel Shoe

The Hullchan Boys reel are generous in fitting so we would suggest ordering 1.5 sizes smaller than your normal UK shoe size. (1 size smaller you have a wider foot).

e.g. If you are normally a size 8 UK with a standard width foot then order a size 6.5 UK. If you have a normally an 8 UK and have a wide foot then order then a size 7 UK.

Traditional Boys Reel Shoe (Leinster or Concorde Heel)

We recommend that you purchase your normal school or dress shoe size. If you have a wider foot we suggest you add half a size.

Capezio Boys Reel Shoe

Due to the minimal structure of these shoes they can be difficult to fit. We recommend ordering your normal shoe size. Experienced dancers may want to drop half a size for a closer fitting and sharper toe shape when pointing.

Watch our video and find out about the great new features on the Hullachan boy's reel shoe!

The Hullachan boys reel shoe has been designed to meet the demands of modern male Irish dancers.

Designed by Craig Coussins and Antonio Pacelli, it is lighter and stronger than any other boy's reel shoe on the market. As any serious male dancer knows, the Capezio reel shoe has never been ideal. While the technology in girl's pumps has dramatically improved over the years, the boy's reel shoe has largely remained the same. Well no longer!

This is the first boy's reel shoe which has been designed from the ground up to be a boy's reel shoe, rather than adapting existing jazz shoes on the market.

The shoe is made from a higher grade of leather than the Capezio Boys Reel making it stronger and more resistant to tearing during training and competitions whilst still allowing maximum feel and control.

The heel area has been reinforced to provide a secure fit as well as ensuring the shoe has the strength to carry a Championship level heel. 

We have also introduced for the first time, proper cushioning and shock protection into a boy's reel shoe. As with all the new Hullachan Red range, the shoe is fitted with Clever Insoles, which are a dual layer insole which has both shock absorption properties to protect your joints as well as softness for comfort. This is covered in a Camberel lining which helps wick away moisture from the foot.

Hullachan boys reel shoes are also fitted with the Concorde Lite heel which is 30% lighter than our standard Concorde heel. This creates a more balanced shoe and allows you to dance at optimal levels for longer. In our tests, the Concorde heel Lite was louder than our original Concorde heel even though it's lighter!

Another major difference is the sole of the Hullachan. The plastic front sole of the Capezio has been replaced with a black suede sole, similar to some of the girl's pumps, allowing much more flexibility and a better point.

Try the new Hullachan Boys Reel and feel how different a shoe designed just for male Irish dancers feels. You will definitely notice feel the difference!

 

Sizing Advice

The Hullchan Boys reel are generous in fitting so we would suggest ordering 1.5 sizes smaller than your normal UK shoe size. (1 size smaller you have a wider foot). 

e.g. If you are normally a size 8 UK with a standard width foot then order a size 6.5 UK. If you have a normally an 8 UK and have a wide foot then order then a size 7 UK.
