Product description


Hullachan has created a jig shoe which ticks all the boxes. Flexible and responsive but packed with comfort and support features which make the shoe a joy to dance in, while protecting your feet and joints from injury.

  • High Grade Leather Uppers -For a professional look on stage which wear well and hold their shape beautifully.
  • Padded Ankle Collar - So no sore heels when you are breaking them in! They also make the shoe feel very secure on the foot.
  • Lightweight - The shoe has lots of support and comfort features but we have kept the shoe very light so you can dance for hours.
  • Clever Insoles - No dancer wants to miss class or competitions through injury. Our dual layer insoles have a twin shock absorption and comfort layers to protect your joints and make the shoe a joy to wear. 
  • Flexible black suede sole - Zero breaking in time so you can get straight up on your toes.
  • Concorde Lite heels - These heels are 30% lighter and create a sound  louder than the original Concorde heel thanks to an internal echo chamber.
  • Shorter toe length - Your feet will look nice and tidy thanks to the short toe profile of the design.
  • Breathable red lining - Elegant and effective at keeping your feet cool even when training hard and for long periods.
  • Championship level tips  - This shoe is fitted with our Liberty tip, the loudest tip available to ensure you don't blend into the background when you are on stage.
UPDATE: We are currently sold out in certain sizes of the Hullachan Jig shoe. Our design team is working on some fantastic improvements to the shoe, so unfortunately there will be a delay on restocking any sold out sizes while we make these changes.
The new and improved Hullachan Jig shoe should be back on the website February/March next year.
We know there are a lot of Hullachan jig shoe fans out there so we will be letting you all know as soon as the new design is available for purchase through our newsletter.

We are very happy with the upgraded Hullachan Red jig shoes. We had the original reds, and they were amazing for about a month, but they wore out very quickly due to thin leather. These are very sturdy. Hopeful that we’ll get many months out of them!

I really like the ultra-light shoes.

They stay on my feet better than other shoes that I’ve bought in the past especially because I have narrow heels. The padding is very nice and has held up well. So far the shoes have worn well overall. Other Hullachan’s that I’ve had in the past would split along the side seam and sole around the big toe to the ball of the foot.

The sound is much louder which is great because I don’t have to dance as hard to be heard.

I will say that I don’t really see any difference in the weight between these and other types of hardshoes.

My daughter is delighted with the shoes!

I literally wore these to dance class as soon as I got them! They are very comfortable and supportive – and make a lovely clear sound.

These are my first hard shoes so I don’t really have other shoes to compare them too… I was a bit scared as from what I had heard hard shoes are usually uncomfortable, but I find these very comfortable and light! Also quick delivery.

Thank you so much for your help.  After years of ill fitting shoes, my daughter is finally happy.  As soon as they were on her feet, before they were even tied or danced in, she knew these were the ones!
We will be ordering more through the years!
I would also add that you were helpful with the sizing and information on the shoes as well as fulfilling the order in an efficient and timely manner!

We DO NOT accept deliveries from FEDEX due to the high charges involved. If you prefer to send it via FEDEX then you will be responsible for the import charges and please note that the processing of your return will take 3 - 4 weeks longer than normal as we will have to wait until FEDEX confirm the import charges first before we can process your return.

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.

Ultralite Size Guide

Hullachan Ultralite 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.

The measurements given are for the foot length we recommend for each size and DOES NOT indicate the length of the jig shoe.

Please note that this is a guide and does not guarantee the correct fit. 

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.
If you have a wide foot, then go up half a size. You can find some examples here.
