WIDTH FITTINGS

As all of our shoes are hand crafted in our factory in the United Kingdom, we’re able to offer a range of width fittings. Our standard fittings are Regular, Wide, Extra Wide and Narrow, but we can go as far as Extra Extra Extra Wide and Extra Extra Extra Narrow. See below the full range of fittings we offer, and note the surcharges that apply to fittings outside of our standard range.

Each fitting has a 0.5cm difference. For instance, a Wide fit is 0.5cm wider than a Regular fitting in the circumference in the front of the shoe. An Extra Wide fitting would be a further 0.5cm wider than the Wide fitting. The additional fitting is based on the circumference of the upper/vamp and the insole remains the same width throughout the various fittings, except when we go wider than Extra Extra Wide (in these cases we'll talk you through how to measure your feet to give us accurate measurements).

 

HEEL OPTIONS

 

ELITE

web-heels-elite.jpg

Our Elite heel has been developed with many of the world's leading competitive dancers. It is a slim heel with the heel centred further down the arch for a really sleek and stylish look. We have a 2.5" Elite and 3" Elite heel available and this is available on all of our Ladies Latin shoes. Pictured above you can see the 3" Elite heel on the left and the 2.5" Elite heel.

IDS

web-heels-ids.jpg

The IDS heel is our classic heel and the most traditional. It is a flared heel and offers the very best in stability and balance. It is very popular on the Ladies Latin, Ballroom and Social shoes and it has 2" IDS, 2.5" IDS, 3" IDS and 3.5" IDS versions available. From left to right can see the 2" IDS heel, 2.5" IDS heel, 3.5" IDS heel and furthest right is the 3" IDS heel.

VOGUE

web-heels-vogue-all.png

Our stylish Vogue heel is best described as a slightly flared version of our 'Ultra Slim' heel (further below) or a slimmer and more sleek version of our 'IDS' flared heel (seen above). It's available on heights of 2" (5.2cm), 2.5" (6.5cm), 3" (7.8cm) and 3.5" (9cm) on Latin shoes and 2" & 2.5" on Ballroom shoes. This elegant heel blends the ultimate in style with exceptional balance and comfort, taking inspiration from heels often worn for Argentinian Tango dancing. The slight flaring out at the bottom enhances that crucial feeling of stability of the dander, giving you even more confidence when you step out onto the floor.

SLIM

web-heels-slim.jpg

Whilst our Elite heel is our sleek and stylish slimmer heel for Latin shoes, our Slim heel is our slim option for Ballroom. Much like our Elite heel, this is a tapered heel which a stylish look. It's one of our original designs and the difference between this and the Elite heel is that the tip of the heel is further back toward the heel which is better for Ballroom and we have a 2" Slim (pictured on the right), 2.5" Slim (middle) and 3" Slim (left) heel available.

ULTRA SLIM

web-heels-ultra-slim.jpg

The Ultra Slim heel is the slimmest of the heels we offer and is available on Ladies Latin and Social shoes. It's one for the confident ladies and is very similar to the kind of heel found on Argentinian Tango shoes. It is available as a 2.5" Ultra Slim (pictured left), 3" Ultra Slim (middle) and 3.5" Ultra Slim (right) heel.

OTHER LADIES & GIRLS HEELS

web-infopage-heels-others.jpg

1.5" HEATHER (left) - A padded heel with a curved lip on the back for our 'Heather' and 'Heather Split' practice and teaching shoes. This is perfectly comfortable and supportive for the long days in practice and teaching shoes.

1.25" CUBAN (2nd from left) - This is mainly used on our Girls shoes as a heel for Juvenile dancers, however it is often chosen on adults shoes too for an extra supportive lower heel.

1.5" JUNIOR (2nd from right) - Not just a shoe for younger dancers, many find this heel particularly comfortable and supportive as it is lower and has a greater surface area for better balance.

1.5" CK (right) - This heel is for our 'CK Line Shoe' and is a lower heel which is thicker with a wider surface area. The sole of the heel is flat.

MEN'S BALLROOM HEELS

web-heels-men-ballroom.jpg

1" Tango (left) - Like the 1" Contra heel, this heel features padding and a lip that comes over the back of the heel for smoother movements on heel turns, it's simply slightly narrower in the shape. This is used for our 'Tango' design.

1" Contra (middle) - This heel features comfortable padding with the lip design where the sole material comes over the back of the heel for smoother movements on heel turns. It is used on our Contra, Contra Pro and Brogue.

1" Gibson (right) - A slightly wider heel with a larger surface area which is flatter than the above heels and doesn't feature that lip design on the back. Used on our Pino, Pino Flex, Gibson & Oxford.

MEN'S LATIN HEELS

web-heels-menslatin.jpg

1.5" (right) - This Latin heel features the lip on the back of the heel for smoother movements on the heel. It's the most popular requested heel for Men's Latin.

2" (left) - A slightly higher version to the 1.5" heel for dancers looking for that extra height.
