Performance Heels


Product description

Antonio Pacelli Performance Heel.

These heels have been designed in association with Fusion Entertainment and offer dancers of all levels the opportunity to feel like a star.

Performance heels are made from stainless steel and add flair and drama to any exhibition or performance. They naturally catch the eye of the audience as they glint on stage and the sound they generate will delight even the most hardy Irish dance fan.

They are extremely hard wearing and should last the length of your dancing career. Each set of heels come with fixing screws and can be fitted by any good local cobbler. As the heels are so durable we have ensured they can easily be refitted onto other pairs as required.

These Heels are available in both light and heavy weights. The heavy heels have more of a resonance and a sharper sound than the lighter heels, but some dancers' may prefer the lighter heel if the sounds of your show are pre-recorded or you are a lighter dancer.

So share the magic of Irish dance and become the star of your own show!

  • Please note these heels are not suitable for competition.
  • Please note that they are only suitable for sizes UK adult 7.5 - 9 only. 
  • If you would like to order a new pair of jig shoes with the Performance heels attached then please get in touch for pricing. Please note that once the performance heels have been attached to the shoe they become non-refundable

Price is per pair

Weight - Light = 84g each heel

Heel Height

The performance heel is 1.5" which is the same height as our standard Concorde heel.


**These heels are not suitable for outdoor performances and should only be worn on wooden floors and sprung stages. Dancing outside on concrete or incorrect surfaces will invalidate any warranty on this product. **

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

We recommend that you test the fit of any pumps or jig shoes on carpet to avoid marking the soles. Please note that we cannot refund or exchange pumps or shoes that have been worn at a dance class unless faulty.
