MANY CONGRATULATIONS to CAMERON WALKER, RUBY BAILLIE, OLIVIA WADDELL & HARRIETTE WADDELL on their successes at Cowal this year. We are proud to be associated with all of you and wish you all continued success in the future.

We are continually striving to improve the fit of our Highland Dance range and will gradually phase in shoes with in-built Shock Absorbers at the forefoot area only, leaving the shoe to fit snugly round the heel. In addition we are now lining the shoes with a thin suede top-piece, replacing the current leather lining.

EVERYONE is welcome to visit us at our warehouse in Glenrothes where you can try all our styles and sizes to achieve the best fit. We are open Monday - Thursday 9am - 5pm and Friday 9am - 12 noon.

St Andrews Shoemakers Ltd manufacture the world-famous 'James Senior' Scottish Country and Highland Dance shoes including Ghillies, Pumps, Jig and Jazz shoes in addition to dance accessories. We are the ONLY manufacturer and distributor of James Senior dance shoes and we are not associated with any other dance shoe manufacturer - please be aware of imitations.

Manufactured in the finest high quality calf leather produced in our own tannery, James Senior dance shoes are world leaders in both Scottish Country and Highland Dance shoes with the shoes feeling like a second skin around your feet. St Andrews Shoemakers Ltd was the first manufacturer to develop the concept of an in-built Shock Absorber in a dance shoe back in 2003. Having trialled a range of products over the years and with its proven track record of benefits Poron is the Shock Absorber of choice and is now standard in all of our styles today.

St Andrews Shoemakers Ltd enjoys a long-standing affiliation with the Royal Scottish Country Dance Society (RSCDS). For 12 years the company has provided a comprehensive service to the annual Summer & Winter Schools in St Andrews and Pitlochry, attended by Scottish Country dancers world-wide, where the company benefits from feedback from dancers who after-all are the true experts in a good-fitting shoe. St Andrews Shoemakers Ltd has many long-standing relationships with Highland Dance Schools at home and abroad and we continue to listen to suggestions for improving our dance shoes, as quality control and customer satisfaction are vitally important to us.

The use of high quality fine leathers and the original James Senior patterns and lasts, together with Linda & Tom Struthers’ vast experience as dancers themselves, we have a truly winning combination.
