- RECOMMENDED FOR EXPERIENCED DANCERS ONLY
The Antonio Pacelli Ultralite has a soft lightweight upper. However, it is not just the leather that makes them so light. The Concorde heel as been redesigned to the Concorde Lite heel so it is much lighter while keeping the same amazing sound that dancers expect from the Concorde heel.
There is also no 'toe puff' at the toe which creates a much lower profile when seen from the side, which helps accentuate the toe when pointing.
The thinner leather upper means there is absolutely no breaking in time, no blisters and no waiting for the sole to soften.
This shoe is proving extremely popular with Open Championship Irish dancers.
Due to the lightweight nature of this jig shoe we do not recommend it for less experienced dancers or those who require more support.
Due to the lightweight nature of these jig shoes they will not last as long as our other models as they have been designed to be extremely lightweight, flexible and responsive to the dancer. You should be expecting to replace these every 6 months, or even sooner if you are very hard wearing on shoes. Unfortunately this is the compromise for having such a light weight, flexible shoe. If you want a more durable model but still flexible out of the box then we would recommend the Ultraflexi jig shoe.
Tips and Heels
The Ultralite jig shoe is only available with Liberty Tips and Concorde Lite Heels.
The Liberty tips are an Open/Championship level tip and are worn by many of the world's top dancers.
They are made from a mixture of high performance materials, all tightly compressed together to create a very compact, dense material.
The sound of the Liberty tip is a clear, crisp sound with a high resonance which is unique to the Liberty tip. It produces a higher frequency than our Concorde tip and the Liberty tip is often described as a 'gun shot' due to its sharp sound on impact.
All of our tips have a large 'Toe Stand' square at the front to make toe walking and getting on your toes easier.
The Concorde Lite heel is the latest innovation from Antonio Pacelli. It is much lighter than our standard Concorde heel but gives the same outstanding performance and sound.
It is an Open/Championship level heel made from the same composite materials as our Concorde Tips, which is a mix of several ingredients, all tightly compressed together to create a very high density material.
The Concorde Lite heel also has a curve on the inside of the heel to improve the accuracy of heel clicks and ensure a nice 'shot gun' sound when clicked.
