As seen in Irish Dancing Magazine, Corr's Irish Shoes is thrilled to officially introduce its brand new soft shoe, the Corr's Wild Irish™ Dance Ghillie. A split-sole design, the Wild Irish is not intended to replace the Corr's Champion™ Split-Sole Ghillie, but is instead an alternative to that more traditional design – with the many different foot types usually suiting one style or the other.
The Wild Irish has been designed to emphasize the dancer's arch in every way, but has a modern design that does away with a center-seam over the toes. Unlike other soft shoes of similar modern design, the Wild Irish has been constructed to allow for a secure fit over the dancer's heel without bagging or puckering due to excess leather – a fit that is smooth and clean, resulting in a beautifully enhanced point.
With the introduction of the Wild Irish Dance Ghillie with Split-Sole Design, Corr's is also introducing a new, improved and more advanced padding in its soft shoes – EVA. Deceptively thinner, Corr's EVA padding (that is combined with a reinforced lining that wicks away moisture – aiding in blister prevention – and, as with all of our soft shoes, an additional layer of neoprene padding in the ball of the foot area) has many advantages over the commonly used Poron padding in that it provides the same or better shock absorption, but takes up less space within the shoe, provides better grip/traction, and does not crack or split. In addition, Corr's uses it's finest Champion™ leather on the Wild Irish, which offers a remarkable balance of suppleness and durability.
This shoe is sold in UK sizes, not US sizes.
All sizes are in UK sizes. If you don't know your size, please refer to the measurement chart below to help find a good fit. Click here for instructions on how to take an accurate foot measurement.
If you like a more comfortable fit please size up 1/2 to 1 full size! The sizing chart is meant to give you an extremely tight fit. For more fitting tips, visit our Find Your Fit page. The foot measurement recommended by Corr's DOES NOT indicate the length of the shoe as they should be tight enough that your toes are curled under when they are first worn. If you're unsure, we recommend ordering a few sizes to try and then returning the ones you don't need. Please be aware of our Return Policy.
