Amazing. My daughter LOVES them. They are so light! I have seen these on other top dancers before didn’t know where to get them online. Definitely recommend!

I love them. They are so much lighter than my current pair of Rutherfords. My heel clicks sounds great even though the heel feels really light.

Thanks so much. They look beautiful. I can’t wait for my daughter to see them she will be so surprised.

These shoes are simply fantastic! Though it took about 2 months to get accustumed to their weight after my previous ones (Ultraflexi with Ulster tips and heels which were perfect for a primary dancer), I just love them! They have incredible and loud sound, the clicks are great. Competing alone in a huge sport hall, my teacher and my parents were able to hear every single step I made! Thank you!

I came to your Wembley Store to purchase a new pair of heavy shoes and ended up buying the Ultralite Heavy Shoes. I wore them on stage at the World’s 3 weeks later. Never in my Irish dancing career have I been able to get heavy shoes stage ready in such a short amount of time with such little pain. The soft leather made them really easy to control my whole foot and had very little resistance when arching. The Liberty tips and Concorde heels also made for a really loud, crisp sound on the stage. Needless to say, they were effective, and definitely helped me in achieving the Senior Men’s World title this year in Glasgow.

I absolutely love these shoes!
The best pair of jig shoes I have ever had on my feet. I usually take a couple of months to break in heavy shoes and be able to complete toe stands but with these shoes I literally had them on my feet twice and I was able to get up.
Both myself and my dancing teacher were in shock as I really feared that I wouldn’t have them broken in on time.
They are very comfortable shoes which take to the shape of your feet, this makes them feel very secure.
The sound from the tips and heels is second to none. Although they have stretched slightly due to the leather used they don’t feel that they are too big or anything.
The dual layer insole is great as it absorbs the shock when dancing. They are lovely to dance in and feel very light on my feet.
I really wish I could have tried these shoes sooner than I did as they really are the best pair of jig shoes I have put on. I will certainly be recommending these to anyone!

We are thrilled with the Ultra-Lite shoes! I bought them for both of my daughters (aged 9 and 6 and both open championship dancers) and will never buy another brand!
The sound from the heels and tips is far superior to any jig shoes we have had previously, we can really notice the difference.
The girls have found them to be extremely comfortable and needed no ‘breaking in’ as the leather is so soft and they have commented that they feel much lighter and less cumbersome than their previous shoes.
In fact, the girls dancing teacher commented at class on Tuesday evening that going forward, if anyone is buying new jig shoes, they should buy the Ultra-Lite as when the dancers point their toes in their jig shoes, the Ultra-Lite gives a beautifully shaped point.
Thanks so much – we will certainly be buying them again!
