Product description

Click here for the H3 Sizing Guide

The Hullachan 3 has been designed from the ground up to protect and enhance a dancer's performance and reflects the increasing demands of today's Irish dancing.

The Hullachan 3 uses new materials to cushion and protect Irish dancers from injury and offers dancers an innovative lacing system designed to offer excellent arch support and a beautiful arch profile.  


Hullachan have introduced a secondary eyelet closer to the arch of the foot. This allows dancers to use the laces to pull the arch of the pump up, so it fits snugly and securely along their own arch which acts to support and showcases it on stage.

Some dancers with high arches have struggled in the past to get a pump to support them and highlight this feature of their feet but not longer! Even if you have high arches you will get the support you need.

The secondary eyelet also allows the dancer to tie the pumps like a normal pair of shoes without the need to circle the laces around the arch.

Dancers need to demonstrate defined strong arches on stage especially at higher levels when every detail counts. A good arch profile is diffiicult to showcase to adjudicators if that area is filled in with laces.


The Hullachan 3 are fitted with Clever Insoles.

Clever Insoles are made from a combination of hi-tech materials new to Irish dance which protect and cushion your feet and joints.

They absorb 90% of impact shock from leaps and advanced footwork and are a real improvement over standard Irish dance insoles currently available on the market.

The insole is covered in a wick away Camberelle lining removing the chance of the poron cracking or tearing due to age.

  • 4mm higher at the back with a deeper heel seat so they feel secure around the heel so you can enjoy your dancing without fear of them slipping off.
  • A seam free toe for an extra comfortable fit around the toe area.
  • Softer leather than the H1 to allow for a slight stretch over time for an improved fit and point.
  • Hullachan signature red suede lining for that extra touch of elegance!
  • 15g lighter than the H1

So many dancer suffer with painful arches. At last some extra support in a pump. My daughter delighted with her new pumps.

12 August 2014

OMG! I love them. They make my feet look amazing!! Can’t wait to show them at class!!!!!!!!!!

12 August 2014

My daughter is in love with these. Had to go half a size up. The additional eyelet works great. A bit fiddly first time around but definitely worth it for the great arch support.

12 August 2014

An excellent pump. Great leather and the arch is fantastic. My daughter’s feet look great in them. Back to Hullachan after trying the Ryan O’Donnell pump which we were not that happy with!

Have been suffering from injuries for a while and this is just wanted I needed. They feel wonderful on the foot and are very supportive. You can feel the extra support when you pull up the arch lace. Would definitely recommend them to dancers.

For me the best pump ever. Very beautiful and good shape on my foot. Padding and shape of arch very good.

At first very tight, but gave them a chance just walking around.  Now love the arch, love the cushion, leather is durable yet flexible—really the best soft shoe we have owned!  Thank you Hullachan!

This is my favourite soft shoe ever….will probably not ever wear anything else!

They are the best fitting soft shoe I have ever owned, including any of the other Hullachans I’ve tried. The stitching on the bottom as a single seam (instead of the extra leather pieces) as well as the sole that stays on the ball/toes of the foot (instead of coming down through the arch) is perfect…They are the best soft shoes in terms of fit, comfort, look and feel

Both my girls hate them so much so I have had to buy the pro 2 the eyelet that’s been added seemed to dig into the foot we had to cover with plaster only worn one feis

**Hi Allison, Sorry to read that your daughters didn’t get on with their H3 pumps. It is a shame we didn’t fit them here at the shop as we may have been able to identify and remedy the issue for you. Glad to see that the pro 2 seemed okay.

We do extend our returns period over the Christmas period to cover early purchases which then need to be returned.

The customer is responsible for the cost of return unless the item was sent out incorrectly or is faulty.

**Please ensure you pack the return correctly (you can reuse the courier bag we sent your order in - simply turn it inside out ). Please do not just sellotape the jig shoe box and write your address on it as this means we need to replace the box on return. We do charge a new box fee of £2.50 if we need to change the box because it has your address or tape on it.***

How To Return An Item (Non-UK Customers)

International customers can follow the instructions above, but you will also need to write on the outside of the box/bag and customs slip 'Returning to Manufacturer' to avoid delays and charges in customs. Any charges arising from customs documentation not being completed correctly will be deducted from the refund amount.

We DO NOT accept deliveries from FEDEX due to the high admin charges involved.

Mistakes happen from time to time, so if have received an incorrect or faulty item, then please email us at If the item is faulty then please include photographs of the fault so we can resolve the problem for you as quickly as possible. We will advise you of the next steps once we receive your email.

When returning incorrect or faulty items please note we will only refund return postage up to the value of the original postage paid for the order.

Please note if you ask us to leave your order somewhere on your property (e.g. in the porch, hide under hedge) so no signature is taken, then you will not be able to claim for a lost parcel in the event of it going missing.

We are happy to comply with your instructions but we do recommend that if you are unable to sign for the parcel that you get it delivered to a friendly neighbour.

If you are not in then a ‘called while you were out’ card will be left.

You can then arrange to get it redelivered to your address or collect from your local post office or sorting office.

Deliveries to Hotels

Hotel deliveries can be difficult due to the busy nature of their receptions desks and the number of hotel staff required to either handle or store the parcel before it arrives safely with the guest.

Due to this we advise that, wherever possible, you do not select a hotel as the delivery address for your order. If you do nominate a hotel please be aware that unfortunately we cannot accept responsibility for the parcel once the parcels tracking shows it has been successfully delivered to a hotel reception.

We also advise that you make the hotel aware in advance that you are expecting a parcel and that you liaise with them directly regarding collecting your parcel after it has arrived at their reception.

Size Guide

Hullachan 3 Sizing Guide

Please measure the length of your foot and refer to the guidelines below for what size to order.

If you require advice on how to do an accurate measurement then please visit our Foot Measuring Page for useful tips and assistance.

This guide is designed for the intermediate dancer. You may want to go a half size larger if you are a beginner or for a smaller size if you are an open dancer.

The measurements given are for the foot length we recommend for each size and DOES NOT indicate the length of the pump as your toes should be slightly curled when first worn.

Please note that this is a guide and does not guarantee the correct fit. For more information on this guide and on fitting pumps correctly then please click here.

To use: Measure your foot and choose the closest size to that measurement. If your foot measurement is between lengths then adjust for your type of foot or preferred fit.
For example, if you have a wide foot, a high instep or are a beginner then go for the size above your foot measurement. If you have a narrow foot or like your pumps very tight to begin with the go for the size below your measurement. You can find some examples here.

Please Note - Every dancer prefers their pumps to fit in a certain way. Some like them extra tight, others with a little room. Combine this with the fact that everyone's feet are unique in terms of width, length, arch type and height and you can see why pump fitting can be difficult. Hence we only offer this sizing chart as a guide rather than a guaranteed fit.
