The Antonio Pacelli Show Shoe is the jig shoe worn by dancers in Irish dance shows and exhibitions all over the world.
Based on our Ultraflexi jig shoe, it is fitted with Capezio metal tips and our Concorde Lite heels.
The show shoe also has a half rubber sole which increases the stability of the shoe and reduces the chance of slipping on stage during complex routines. The rubber sole does not affect the performance of the shoe in any way.
The height of the heel can be customised by adding layers to the heel. Each layer is about 4mm in height.
This model has one extra layer on the heel. If you require no heel extensions or 2 layers then please see the other models in this range.
The heel extensions allow choreographers to level out the height of dancers or increase dramatic tension on stage.
If you require more bespoke customisations such as tip extensions or a full rubber sole then please call us for a quotation.
**Please note we have changed the height of our Concorde heels so if your previous show shoe is more than 3 years old then it may be the older, higher style and you may need a heel extension if you want your new pair at the same heel height. If you are concerned about this then please let us know before ordering and we can assist you. **

Please note that show shoes do require ongoing maintenance. The tips will need to be regularly tightened, as the screws that hold the tip in place will become loose over time.
You can glue the screws in place with Locktight glue if you are happy that you will not be able to adjust the screws to change the sound generated from the tips. You can also request for our technicians to do this when ordering.
If you do not glue the screws in place or regularly tighten the screws, then the metal tip may come off. This would not be classified as a fault and is due to a lack of aftercare.
Showshoes are only suitable for professional dance surfaces such as sprung dance floors. Dancing on any other surface such as concrete or pavements invalidates any warranty.
Due to low staffing levels, we can't not exchange an order. Instead please return it for a refund and reorder the item you need online.

We are happy to refund any purchase within 30 days as long as the item has not been worn or soiled (please note that this excludes show shoes and any products made to your bespoke requirements - in these instances we strongly recommend that you are confident about the sizing before ordering).
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 shoes that have been worn at a dance class unless faulty.

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.
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.
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.
**Please note that this is only a guide and does not guarantee the correct fit. Show Shoes are not returnable in the event that the size is wrong. If you are unsure of the size we advise you come to the shop for a fitting.**
