The Antonio Pacelli Ultraflexi jig shoe has a flexible black suede sole and high quality leather uppers.
The Ultraflexi is the perfect jig shoe for dancers who do a lot of toe stands and toe walking as the Ultraflexi is flexible straight out of the box. This is an intermediate level shoe, much more flexible than the Antonio Pacelli Superflexi but not as advanced as the Ultralite.
The sole of the Ultraflexi does not offer as much as support as the Antonio Pacelli Superflexi model so we do not recommend them for very young dancers, those new to dance or dancers with foot problems.
The Ultraflexi comes with a U-shaped heel stiffener so the top edge of the back of the shoe, the part of the shoe which meets your achilles tendon, is softer and reduces the possibility of blisters and irritation when new.
All Ultraflexi jig shoes have a poron insole which is a medical grade material with excellent shock absorbing properties which reduces the impact on the joints of the foot and lower body when dancing.
Other features of the Ultraflexi include a high grade strap and easy open/close buckles - important when you need to quickly change from soft to hard shoes during competitions!
Tips and Heels
These Ultraflexi hard shoes come fitted with Leinster Tips and Leinster Heels. These are beginner/intermediate level tips and perfect for those new to Irish dance or who are not competing at a senior level. They are made from highly compressed materials to create a tip which offers a bright clear tone. All Antonio Pacelli tips have a large 'Toe Stand' square at the front to make toe walking and getting on your toes easier.
The Leinster heel is a hard wearing polymer heel. The heel is light and easy to dance in and produces a satisfying sound when clicked.
