Heavy Shoe Sizing Guide
Please remember that while following the guidance below will help you get the correct size, the foot is a three dimensional shape and factors such as the depth of the arch will also affect sizing which we are unable to account for here. As such the sizing guide is not a guarantee that the size will be correct. Customers will be responsible for the postage cost of any exchange unless an item was sent in error.
On a general note, jig shoes should not be purchased too large as the ball of the foot needs to sit correctly in the shoe to be able to generate the required sound with the tips. Jig shoes which are too large also make toe walking and more advanced techniques very difficult. They also create more blisters than shoes which are too small. A little toe wiggle room is fine but the distance from the tip of the longest toe to the top of the shoe should be no more than 5-10mm (depending on the level of the dancer).
Flexi Pro / Atlantic Bróg/ Atlantic Black Heavy Shoes
Please see our page on Flexi Pro for full fitting techniques. Please note that shoes which are purchased online are not guaranteed from splitting if the shoes have been fitted incorrectly or the wrong width purchased. Flexi pro come in Standard and Wide Fit so if you have a wide foot please try the correct width fitting. We can also supply Narrow as a special order.
Fays Heavy Shoes
Fays shoes are a narrower fit and we do not recommend them for dancers with a wider foot.
We suggest that you order half a size smaller than your normal UK school shoe or dress shoe size (Please see below for our UK/US/EU conversion chart).
