The Antonio Pacelli Superflexi jig shoe has a flexible leather sole and high quality leather uppers.
The Superflexi is the perfect choice for new dancers or those requring a balance of support and flexibility. The leather sole acts to support the arch and structure of the foot.
Over time the leather sole will become more flexible, this process is known as 'breaking in' resulting in a pair of amazingly comfortable jig shoes with soles which are both flexible and supportive.
As the sole does require time to 'break in' we advise dancers who want to go on their toes straight away to purchase our Ultraflexi jig shoes which have a black suede sole which is very flexible from the first wear.
The Superflexi comes with a U-shaped heel stiffener so the top edge of the back of the shoe, the part of the shoe which meets your achilles tendon, is softer which reduces the possibility of blisters and irritation when new.
All Superflexi jig shoes have a poron insole which is a medical grade material with excellent shock absorbing properties which reduces the impact on the joints of the foot and lower body when dancing.
Other features of the Superflexi include a high grade strap and easy open/close buckles - important when you need to quickly change from soft to hard shoes during competitions!
All tips now have a large squared front for extra balance during toe stands and toe walks.
Please note that our sizing is UK sizing.
These Superflexi hard shoes come fitted with Leinster Tips and Leinster Heels.
These are beginner/intermediate level tips and perfect for those new to Irish dance or who are not competing at a senior level.
They are made from highly compressed materials to create a tip which offers a bright clear tone.
All of our tips have a large 'Toe Stand' square at the front to make toe walking and getting on your toes easier.
The Leinster heel is a hard wearing polymer heel. The heel is light and easy to dance in and produces a satisfying sound when clicked.

Please note that from size 8.5 upwards the Leinster heel shape is different to the photographs above. It is not a straight block heel but slightly tapers inwards on both side so the heels gets slightly narrower towards the floor.

I would like to commend you on the service I received from yourselves.I ordered a pair of dance shoes for my granddaughter for Xmas but as it was a surprise I took the size from a pair of trainers she had left at our house . When she opened them on Xmas day she was thrilled and tried them on, it was only later that she told her mum that they were a bit tight. I contacted yourselves and was told to return them for replacement and from sending them back to the replacements arriving was only 5 working days. You have made a little girl very happy and I thank you once again

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 for the same size but choose the wide fit option. If your foot is extra wide or you prefer a comfort fit then choose the wide fitting and go up half a size. You can find some examples here.
|9 (Wide Fit Only)||170|
|9.5 (Wide Fit Only)||172|
