    Fit: Runs very large

    I'm not exactly certain how they made the shoe look like it does in the photo. When I tried it on, it was such a large loose bag of leather that there was no way of closing the shoe unless I folded one side over the other and wrapped my foot like a leather burrito. I don't even have particularly narrow feet.

    Wonderful for aerial net and belly dance

    by: Esterminator - 07/12/2014

    Comfort: 5 star rating

    Durability: 3 star rating

    I perform on an aerial net and these shoes are perfect for that. Aerial nets can become horribly tangled on bare feet. You can wear socks but this is prettier. These shoes are in no way meant for walking around in as they are not very durable. Nice clean dry mats or dance floors are where they should be worn. Super soft. I also wear them for belly dance when I don't want to have bare feet. I'm buying my second pair as my daughter stole my first pair to use at circus camp.

    May I recommend Rutherford's?

    by: eirerincemochroi - 06/06/2014

    Comfort: 2 star rating

    Durability: 1 star rating

    As an Irish dancer and now Irish dance instructor, I have become a pretty good critic of Irish materials. Unfortunately, these shoes do not fit the standard. They do not bare a resemblance to a proper ghillie; they do not look traditional or show quality craftsmanship. These shoes have an extra long toe, extra tall leather sides, loose, thin leather that fits poorly around the toes, giving a sloppy, flipper foot look while dancing and pointing, etc. These look like a jazz shoe with the tongue cut out and the lacing figure-eighted, but they do not look like a ghillie I would be happy to see my students in. If they were a generic knock-off brand ghillie, I could accept these better for schools that do not have Irish roots and are looking for something that is less financially demanding than the traditional Irish shoe market, but when you consider that genuine ghillies actually cost less, fit better, last longer, and look much better, I don't see the point of these. For those looking for Irish ghillies, I would recommend them looking over Irish brands as well such as Rutherfords, Antonio Pacelli, Corr's, among others before committing to these shoes. These may be more appropriate for Highland dance, but they are not a good fit for Irish. Check with your teacher before ordering these!

    Great fit with comfortable split sole

    by: kplie - 03/11/2014

    Comfort: 5 star rating

    Durability: 3 star rating

    I have gotten two other pairs of this type of shoes in the past. This one so far the best! The first pair was not a split sole and they were just not comfortable when I am pointing plus they didn't last at all. The other time the shoes came out too big. This pair so far the most comfortable ones, true to the size and the sole is actually black. I think black sole is better for black shoes like this so while pointing or audience might see the sole but it shows the extension of my feet, not distracting patches of other color. So far love this! Because of my past experiences, I was skeptical about purchasing this pair, but I'm glad I did get them.

  • what clothing goes with this?

    by: fg (07/09/2014 - Ri) Age: 18 to 24

    i'm doing an irish dance

    I might recommend a lyrical style dress, something like style 7799.
    - DDS Customer Service (07/10/2014)

    1- don't buy these 2- you need to wear athletic shorts, a t-shirt, poodle socks(you'll understand when you start) and PROPER ghillies - Jujubee33 (10/02/2015)

  • how should I size these with my wide feet?

    by: Jackie (11/14/2013 - Sault Ste. Marie, Mi, Usa) Age: 18 to 24

    I have had problems with sizing other ghillies and other dance shoes due to the width of my feet changing. By the recommendations of the site i should be in a 6 or 6.5 but I am wondering if I should order a 7 instead to compensate for width. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks

    By going up a 1/2 size the shoe will get longer by 1/4 of an inch. Unfortunately this will not change the width of the shoe. Though with the leather it will naturally give a little with time.

  • Is this product for men? If so, what sizing? (US)

    by: Shane (02/13/2013)

    sizing for this item: Women order 2?-3 sizes smaller than street size Men order 1/2-1 size smaller than street size
    - DDS Customer Service (02/13/2013)

    I am a Highland dancer/teacher/parent and have been wearing these ghillies exclusively for over 15 years. In my personal experience, I size down 4 size from street shoe to get my perfect fit, aka I wear a US women's 10 street shoe and a size 6 So Danca ghillie. This sizing has worked well for most of my students, although some prefer them a little tighter and go down 4.5 sizes from street shoe. Keep in mind that the leather is thinner and so they stretch more than most Highland ghillies. Hope that helps! - Emmyport (03/01/2013)

  • I would like to know how the sizes run?

    by: dance baby (02/06/2013)

    The worse thing in the world is to anticipate receiving your shoes and when you get them,they're too big or small.

    Women order 2?-3 sizes smaller than street size This information is shown as a guide only and not a guarantee. Actual fitting may vary.

  • I am trying to figure our what size to order

    by: Pam (01/25/2013)

    I wear anywhere from and 8 to a 9, depending on the shoe. I tend to run wide, although rarely have to order a wide shoe. The recommenation for this this shoe is 2 1/2 -3 sizes less than your street size? I am hesitant to order a 6? Can you help?

    I would suggest ordering 2.5 sizes smaller thank your street shoe size. Sizing is only a guide, not a gurantee

So if you're wearing an 8-9 (in US women's street shoes, I'm assuming?) and are a Highland dancer, I would recommend trying a 4-5 in the So Danca split sole ghillies.
