Aoife pomp’s or split soled pomp’s are generally favoured by advanced, professional and open dancers. If you are migrating from a full leather outsole pomp please be advised that the Aoife will fit neater and tighter, you want the foot to look slim, pointed and incredibly neat.
Aoife pomps should be worn a size smaller than your street size and remember that all our sizes are in UK sizes. The pomp should have no room at the toe and should be pulled up at the heel (very important) before lacing and shaping around the ankle.
The fitting of the pomp will feel tight initially but the soft and supple leather will stretch slightly. This is why a lot of really excellent dancers go down 1- 2 sizes. They will essentially stretch the pomp to the fit and contour of their feet.
As with any shoes, remember the fit is always a personal preference. Do however rest assured that we are here to help if you have any issues contact us directly.
