New Bobby Munro Jig Shoes are now in production. There is nothing on the market quite like these state-of-the-art shoes, designed for the modern highland dancer by Craig Coussins and made in Britain by Hullachan Pacelli. The samples in this photo are beautiful shoes, and would grace the foot of any dancer!
NB we're now changing to open toe (removing the front tab) for these shoes - in the Bobby Munro tradition.

The shoes are made with leather uppers and soles; have no front seam or tab. They are both flexible and light and were designed to fit like a second skin and enhance the dancer's foot. The shoes are manufactured in England by a well-known manufacturer of ballet shoes. They are available in sizes -
The country danceshoe has a full length sole, with a draw-string to adjust fitting to the upper foot.They are made of leather and are available in black and red.
