NEW! Our XG Sole for Latin is here!

Posted by

New XG Sole available now!

Our latest innovation to launch at the 2017 Blackpool Dance Festival is our new XG Sole! It has been developed to offer Latin dancers a greater level of grip and traction on the floor. It features specially designed flexible rubber padding embedded into the under-sole of the shoe, all flat, in the area under the weight of the big toe where dancers need the extra grip.

This design has been developed, tried and tested with several Latin couples within our #IDSEliteTeam of sponsored dancers who have taken these shoes around the world over the last few months to help us create the perfect shoe enhancement - one to give you the edge in Blackpool and beyond. The improved grip allows dancers to be more confident and more adventurous with more speed and more power for greater performance.

The XG Sole will be available on a select and limited range of Latin shoes in Blackpool: for men, our 'Rumba' in Black Calf & 'Rumba' in Black Nubuck. For ladies, it will be available on our 'Mia' & 'Mia T-Bar' designs. We have a limited range with us so if you want to be the first to get your hands on a pair you'll have to be quick!

The sole is also available as a Sole Option (+£15 / Bespoke) on the following shoes (click to view):

With the Elena & Flavia, you'll need to select 'XG Sole' from the 'Sole Options' dropdown. These will be +£15 and classed as a Bespoke shoe. If you would like other designs, then please email us at sales@ids-danceshoes.co.uk. We will make the XG Sole available on more styles in the coming weeks.

If you're in Blackpool from the 23rd May to the 2nd of June, come and visit us and try them out for yourself!


If you have any questions at all, please feel free to email us ( sales@ids-danceshoes.co.uk) or call us on +44(0)1908 31997.
