The light leather uppers fits close to the dancers foot for an excellent shape whilst dancing.
The shoe is fitted with a Concorde heel which is an Open/Championship level heel. It has a curve on the inside to allow easier and clear heel clicks.
This type of reel shoe is extremely popular amongst experienced male dancers and is worn by the majority of World Champions.
The shoe is not suitable for beginners, younger dancers or those with recent ankle injuries as the shoe does not offer much support and replies on the strength of the dancer’s arches for structure.
Unfortunately we are unable to offer any manufacturers guarantee on this product as it has been adapted for Irish dance. The leather upper is extremely soft and susceptible to tearing if heel are clicked incorrectly.
We will continue to meet the needs of our customers, but customers purchase at their own risk.
The Hullchan Boys reel are generous in fitting so we would suggest ordering 1.5 sizes smaller than your normal UK shoe size. (1 size smaller you have a wider foot).
e.g. If you are normally a size 8 UK with a standard width foot then order a size 6.5 UK. If you have a normally an 8 UK and have a wide foot then order then a size 7 UK.
TRADITIONAL BOYS REEL SHOE (LEINSTER OR CONCORDE HEEL)
We recommend that you purchase your normal school or dress shoe size. If you have a wider foot we suggest you add half a size.
CAPEZIO BOYS REEL SHOE
Due to the minimal structure of these shoes they can be difficult to fit. We recommend ordering your normal shoe size. Experienced dancers may want to drop half a size for a closer fitting and sharper toe shape when pointing.
