Find the Right Light Shoes for Girls

How to Find the Right Light Shoes for Girls

Beginner/Intermediate Dancer – The Essential Pump

Made and designed by Antonio Pacelli, the Essential Irish dancing pump is a great option for beginner dancers. Made in a traditional design, the Essential pump has leather uppers, a full black suede sole, and a cushioned leather-lined foam insole for comfort while dancing. The perfect shoe for a beginner or intermediate dancer, at a competitive price!

 

Prelim/Championship Dancer

Aoife Pumps

Made and designed by Inish Free the Aoife Pump is a great option for prelim and championship dancers.

The key features of this shoe:

  • Hugs and moulds your foot giving an award-winning arch
  • Short split sole allows a really flexible and neat fit, it’ll wear like a glove
  • Gives an incredibly professional and slim look with its short and pointed toe
  • It Will not hurt and take any time to break in unlike our competitor’s versions
  • It has a medical green ‘Poron’ Urethane ball and heel of the foot padding for superior cushioning, shock absorption and breathability
  • Its full-grain leather will give a supple and quality look and increased longevity

We believe the Aoife Pump is a great option to showcase pointing, the soft leather also means there is no breaking in time, so it is perfect for dancers prone to blisters.

Hullachan Pro 4 Light Dancing Shoes

Made and designed by Antonio Pacelli, the Hullachan 4 has an elasticated arch enhancer that pulls the pump securely around your foot as you tie the laces creating a stunning arch profile while supporting your arches.

The key features of this shoe:

  • Soft leather uppers for a professional onstage appearance.
  • A higher heel seat so the pump feels extremely secure around the heel allowing you to dance with confidence and focus on your performance.
  • A seam-free toe for an extra comfortable fit around the toe area.
  • Hullachan signature red suede lining for that extra touch of elegance!

 

We believe the Hullachan Pro 4s are an excellent option for dancers wanting the perfect point and dancers with narrow feet.

Hullachan Hug Irish Dance Shoes

The Hullachan Hug Irish Dance Shoes is also made by Antonio Pacelli, their team design team have replaced the leather at the back of the Hugs, with a new hugging material, which shapes around the dancer’s heel to create a personalised fit and streamlined look. When you dance the shape of your heel is continually changing, depending on whether you are pointing your feet, leaping through the air, or up high on your toes. Hullachan Hug heels continually adapt while you dance, ensuring the pumps always feel secure, whatever the step.

We believe the Hullachan Hugs are a great option for dancers who struggle to find comfortable light shoes which mould to their feet.

Fay’s Celtic Choice

Fay’s Celtic Choice Dance Pumps are the latest in technology, with an ultra-flexible suede split sole design and special arch stitching that emphasizes the dancer’s natural arch. They have refined heels which hug the shape of the heel not allowing for any excess room in these areas so the pump feels secure during movement. Extra-heavy shock absorbing with this ultra-flexible black suede sole and full cushioned Poron® insole between inner and outer sole protects your feet.

The key features of this shoe:

  • Highest quality Irish Dancing Pump design with 100% strong leather upper and sole for comfort and durability
  • Fitted with full Poron® insoles, between the inner and outer sole, for extra cushioning
  • Heavy shock-absorbing on the heel and metatarsal areas to protect the feet
  • Well-fitting pump with perfect foot shaping

 We believe Fay’s Celtic Choice pumps are the perfect options for dancers with wider feet or dancers wanting a cushioned and durable shoe.

When it comes to light shoes there are so many options, and it is all about finding the perfect fit. Light shoes also stretch and mould after the first wear, so we recommend choosing a size and style that fits correctly but isn’t necessarily comfortable, to begin with – tight shoes are the right shoes!
