recommended dance shoes

For Sean-nós and Old-style Step Dancing:

I recommend a comfortable and supportive shoe with a smooth hard sole. Taps and fiber-glass sole are not necessary. For a louder sound on any shoe, ask your cobbler to add a layer of “neolite” or “vibram” hard rubber soles. The cobbler I use is Jimmy, at Jimmy’s Shoes in Central Square, Cambridge.
