What makes us different from other dance shoe brands is that our shoes are made here in the UK. We have a huge variety of heel types and heights available, so if you’re looking to reach your maximum height, or want something lower for greater stability and comfort, then we have you covered. You can read about our heels here and scroll down to the bottom of the page to view them all! 

Take a look at our heels below and select your preferred heel on the product page of the product you’d like. If the heel isn’t available on the particular product page, then it may not mean that we can’t add it to your favourite shoe.  Email us at sales@ids-danceshoes.co.uk or call us on +44(0)1908 319937 to find out more.

Please note that all heel heights are measured from the middle of the heel when viewed from the side, and not from the back of the heel.


Our Elite heel has been developed with many of the world's leading competitive dancers. It is a slim heel with the heel centred further down the arch for a really sleek and stylish look. We have a 2.5" Elite and 3" Elite heel available and this is available on all of our Ladies Latin shoes.


The IDS heel is our classic heel and the most traditional. It is a flared heel and offers the very best in stability and balance. It is very popular on the Ladies Latin, Ballroom and Social shoes and it has 2" IDS, 2.5" IDS, 3" IDS and 3.5" versions available.


Whilst our Elite heel is our sleek and stylish slimmer heel for Latin shoes, our Slim heel is our slim option for Ballroom. Much like our Elite heel, this is a tapered heel which a sleek and stylish look. It's one of our original designs and the difference between this and the Elite heel is that the tip of the heel is further back toward the heel which is better for Ballroom and we have a 2" Slim, 2.5" Slim and 3" Slim heel available.


The Ultra Slim heel is the slimmest of the heels we offer and is available on Ladies Latin and Social shoes. It's one for the confident ladies and is very similar to the kind of heel found on Argentinian Tango shoes. It is available as a 2.5" Ultra Slim, 3" Ultra Slim and 3.5" Ultra Slim heel.


We have developed this heel as a slightly skinnier version of our traditional IDS flared heel. It is available only on Ballroom shoes and is a very elegant looking heel. At the moment, it is only available as a 2.5" Ultra Flared heel.


2" SPANISH - The 2" Spanish heel is a lower heel available which has a larger base with a larger surface area for better support and balance.

1.5" JUNIOR - Not just a shoe for younger dancers, many find this heel particularly comfortable and supportive as it is lower and similar to the 2" Spanish heel with greater surface area for better balance.

1.5" CK - This heel is for our 'CK Line Shoe' and is a lower heel which is thicker with a wider surface area. The sole of the heel is flat.

1.5" HEATHER - A padded heel with a curved lip on the back for our 'Heather' and 'Heather Split' practice and teaching shoes. This is perfectly comfortable and supportive for the long days in practice and teaching shoes.

1.25" CUBAN - This is mainly used on our Girls shoes as a heel for Juvenile dancers, however it is often chosen on adults shoes too for an extra supportive lower heel.


1" Contra - This heel features comfortable padding with the lip design where the sole material comes over the back of the heel for smoother movements on heel turns. It is used on our Contra, Contra Pro, Tango, Brogue & Randolph. 

1" Gibson - A slightly wider heel with a larger surface area which is flatter than the above heel and doesn't feature that lip design on the back. Used on our Pino, Pino Flex, Gibson & Oxford.


1.5" - This Latin heel features the lip on the back of the heel for smoother movements on the heel. It's the most popular requested heel for Men's Latin.

2" - A slightly higher version to the 1.5" heel for dancers looking for that extra height.
