How to Order Custom Shoes

The Just TAP! Professional and Just TAP! Sean-nós are custom-made shoes. Each shoe is constructed based on careful measurements of your feet to ensure a proper fit. First, an outline of each foot is drawn, and then two dimensions of each foot are measured. Please follow the instructions below VERY carefully as shoes are not refundable.

You will need:

  1. A piece of white unlined paper large enough to make a tracing of your foot

  2. A cloth tape measure. The tape must be flexible to measure around the foot accurately.

  3. A fine-tip marking pen.

Before you fill out the order form

> Trace your foot

Take the piece of white paper and place it on a hard-surface floor (no carpets please!). Place your foot on the paper so that the complete tracing will fit. For large feet you may have to place your foot on a diagonal. Wear the foot-covering (sock, etc.) that you will wear to dance in your new shoes as this will affect the measurements. Place full weight on the foot while making the trace to ensure accuracy.

Using your pen, make a careful trace of the outline of your foot. Go slowly! Remember how you made all of those careful hand traces in kindergarten?

> Measure the widest part

Place the cloth tape under your foot at the widest part. This is the area across the ball of the foot. Put your full weight on the foot and look at it, you will see the widest part. Bring the tape ends around to the top of your foot and record the measurement around the widest part.

 

IMPORTANT! Be sure you are reading the tape correctly and it doesn't twist... a measurement of 85 inches is WRONG! As a guideline, this measurement will usually be somewhere between 7-10 inches.

> Measure around the arch

Place the cloth measuring tape under the arch of your foot (instep). Bring the tape ends around to the top of your foot and record the measurement.
