Sneak Peek at Pictures of the Iconic Dancer Hardshoes by John Carey

Happy Mardi Gras everyone! Whether you’re celebrating with beads or pancakes, I hope you’re fully embracing fat Tuesday!

Of course, Mardi Gras means the start of lent tomorrow which means Easter is 40 days away. That also means that Worlds is only 40 days away! Get to practicing!

After the All-Irelands, I’m super excited for Worlds. One of the things I’m looking forward to is the premier of John Carey’s new hard shoes – the Iconic White and Iconic Black. I posted last week about the price release and now I have some more exciting information that I received to share – the pictures!

The Iconic White has white accents to elongate the leg and create a softer look while eliminating the hassle of white tape. It’s definitely a revolutionary approach to Hard shoes! I would say its one of the first major changes to the style from a visual standpoint. Shamrock lacing was another change, but that was more functional than aesthetic. Pretty cool approach. Can’t wait to see dancers’ reactions!





The shoes go on pre-order tonight at 5 EST, so be sure to check that out on iconicdancer.com if you’re interested!

So now that you’ve seen the new shoes, what do you think? Will you preorder them? What else are you excited for about Worlds?

Stay Fashionable, Feisers!

  1. The Iconic White is interesting, but my first reaction as an oline vendor is, “Where are the rest of the photos?” It’s like seeing a dress on a hangar – you need to show how it looks when worn. I’d like to see photos of a dancer wearing these standing (how will they look in a competition lineup?) and an action shot. Show us the new look, like designers showcase their new creations on the runway. Give us a little marketing sizzle.

    • Hi,
      Thanks for the comment – we will have photos taken as you have suggested and will add them to the website in a few days. Comments like this are much appreciated as we want to promote the shoe in the best possible way for both the vendor and the customer.

      • Donald – I look forward to seeing the photos and will share them on my vendor facebook page!

      • more importantly than the look, what can you tell us about the construction? Is the upper nice and soft and flexible? I would spend up to $500 on a shoe that was somehow kind to the athlete’s feet.

  2. I agree with the first poster. I would love to see the white topped shoes on a dancer’s feet. My imagination can only get me so far. I understand what they’re going for with lengthening the leg, but it may take a little getting used to after seeing the same type of shoe for so long. Nevertheless, I’d love to see them! If they look really clean, I could see them being in high demand.

  3. Hi all,
    follow the link – http://www.iconicdancer.com/engine/shop/product/SI-2035/PRE-ORDER+Iconic+White+-+Woman%27s+Hard+Jig+Shoe+by+John+Carey to see feet in the shoes.

    the shoe is a soft leather and in our trials all the feedback we received was positive regarding comfort and how easy the shoes were to break in etc
