Our latest Country Dance shoes
Our dancing range is 100% hand crafted in Scotland and our manufacturing division has over 30 years experience in this specialist field. We use the highest grade leathers in our dance shoes, with soft leather for the uppers and the most durable and flexible leathers for the insole and sole unit. Every pair of our dance shoes includes a noene shock absorber to help prevent injuries.
Noene Shock Technology – Your guarantee of the highest quality protection
NOENE is the ultimate shock absorption and dispersant system, absorbing about 98% of the shock which in turn helps to relieve and rule out back pain, tendinitis and repetitive strain injuries. It has also passed the strictest tests to become a Class 1 medical device, the only shock dispersing insole to do so, which means it has proven medical benefits.
“I have been dancing for nearly 60 years and teaching dance for 50 years, both country dancing and highland dancing. I recognised from those early days how important shoes are for the achievement of neat and precise movement on the dance floor. Over the last few years, I have been searching for dance shoes that would be a good fit, but also cushion the feet against the impact of dancing on hard floors. Shoes become more critically important for comfort and good dancing as the years progress. Thistle shoes with the impact sole are exactly what I have been looking for. The quality is excellent. In all these years I have never had such superb service and attention to detail as I have from Thistle shoes.”
We offer 2 main styles in our country dance shoes, Royal is our left and right lasted designed for standard to wide fit and Regal is straight lasted designed for narrow to standard fit. We also offer a custom made fit on all our dance shoes should you wish to visit our factory in Glenrothes, or if you are looking for something a little different we may be able to assist as our team has 30 years experience so the chances are they have already seen and done it before. Please contact us should you wish to discuss your individual requirements and special requests.
