Described as a Revolution on the Irish dancing scene by Ann Flood Brennan TCRG/ADRG from Carlow – she adds that ‘the Aoife Patent by INISHFREE is incredibly neat and creates the most beautiful silhouette and point to the foot. It is crisp, clean and looks amazing on stage’.
Fitting the AOIFE patent pomp
The patent pomp is not a practice pomp and should only be worn for competitions. It is important to understand the properties of patent – It is essentially normal leather with a high gloss finish.
Because the finish isn’t as flexible as the Aoife leather we recommend that you do not over pull or stretch the patent as this can cause unnecessary breakage and cracking.
Aoife patent pomps should be worn a size smaller than your street size and remember that all our sizes are in UK sizes. The pomp should have no room at the toe and should be pulled up at the heel (very important) before lacing and shaping around the ankle.
Please note that the smallest size currently in this is child’s UK size 10.
Finally, note that due to the delicate nature of patent leather these pomp’s must be worn with extra consideration. We will not guarantee cracks or splits where the patent has been pulled or stretched. We thank you for your understanding.
