Formed in 1980 by Dan Fay (who had been making shoes for nearly 55 years previously), we believe in creating the highest quality Irish Dancing footwear. To achieve this, all our shoes are handmade by craftsmen in our own workshop in Dorset Street, Dublin Ireland. They have been worn by many a champion and we supply our shoes worldwide to Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Europe, Canada, United States of America and throughout the rest of the world.
From years of experience in manufacture of quality Irish Dance Footwear, our shoe range are customized to maximize your potential, provide durability, with varying degrees of support and flexibility required allowing you to concentrate on your dancing. Furthermore all our hard shoes are made entirely with 100% calf leather. This soft supple leather gives the shoes terrific flexibility, an essential factor for Irish Dancing and puts our shoes at a unique advantage. Other standard features on all our hard shoes include the flattened toe for support and balance when performing toe-stands, click heels for increased sound and tone during heel clicks, reinforced high density heels or high-tech heels for terrific sharp sound and durability, and our specially formulated Hi - Tech tip with many years of improvement and fine-tuning delivering an excellent sharp sound, yet very tough and durable.
In Ireland we manufacture many shoe styles to suit all levels, including the original Fays Original Flexi leather sole with increased support for the feet through the leather sole. For intermediate and advanced dancers, we recommendFays Ultra Flexi black suede providing maximum flexibility and shortest breaking in time. The Ultra Flexiis our most popular choice among the champion dancers. We now have our Ultra Lights which provide even more flexibility and ready to dance straight out of the box.
The latest advances and addition to our quality shoe range. The Ultra Lights are the lightest of all our shoes, designed for dancers who do not want to have to break in new shoes. The heel stiffeners have been reduced to avoid blisters. The Ultra Lights are also made from more lightweight and flexible materials enabling toe stands from time of purchase. Ultra Lights come with Hi-tech heels for that extra sharp sound.
We recommend ordering the Ultra Lights a half size smaller than your regular shoes size for a tighter fitting.
