The Antonio Pacelli Superflexi jig shoe has a leather sole and high quality leather uppers.
The Superflexi is the perfect choice for dancers with weak arches or those requiring a lot of support due to a recent injury, as the leather sole supports 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 requires time to 'break in' we advise dancers who want to go on their toes straight away to purchase our Ultraflexi jig shoe. The Ultraflexi has a black suede sole which offers more flexibility when new.
The Superflexi comes with a U-shaped heel stiffener, so the top edge of the back of the shoe which rests against your achilles tendon is softer, reducing the possibility of blisters and irritation when new.
All Superflexi jig shoes have a Poron insole, a medical grade material with excellent shock absorbing properties that 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

These are my daughters first pair of hard shoes and she loves them! Other Mums from her dance school recommended we go for these, they said they are the best beginner shoe and I can see why, they are great!
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.
