Welcome to Rutherford Products Irish Dance Shoes Website.
Rutherford Products is the leading producer of Irish Dancing Shoes, Irish Dance Wear, and Irish Dance Accessories
worldwide. We are the makers of the now famous Sound-blaster tips, and HyTech heels...the loudest heels and tips anywhere. They come standard on
all on Rutherford Jig Shoes, and are the overwhelming "Choice of Champions". We are the inventor and leading maker of the popular Black Suede Super Flexi Jig Shoe...the most
flexible jig shoe anywhere...and a phenomenal shoe for toe-walking. We sell only the finest quality products. We also are the leading N. American distributor of Hullachan Reel Shoes, and offer an outstanding collection of Ghillies including the Hullachan Reel Shoes, and Rutherford Black Sued Sole Ghillie.
If you find something you like, you may make a secure purchase online, or feel free to give us a call and
have a chat with girls in the office. Most of our
staff enjoyed long careers in Irish Dancing (some more productive than others), and many of them are now proud parents of stepdancers...so
they will be able to relate to any questions you have. Or, if you prefer, ask for John Rutherford.
He started Rutherford Products 30+ years ago to help give his own kids the best quality dancing
shoes. A native of Co. Cavan Ireland, the problem will not be getting him on the phone, but rather, getting
him off it.
We have supplied shoes to Michael Flatley, Jean Butler (original Riverdance), Liam Harney (Folgers commercial), most of the Irish dancing schools worldwide, and we are the #1 supplier for RiverDance and Lord of the Dance.
Look for the Irish dancers in the wake scene of the Hollywood feature film "The Road To Perdition". It stars Tom Hanks, Paul Newman, and it features
some of our best customers including teachers and/or former dancers from the following schools in Chicago: Trinity, Mayer, Mullane, Dillon-Gavin, Hanna Sullivan, Dennehy and Eilish Sullivan.
Tom Hanks actually bought a pair of Super-Flexi Jig shoes with very
good intentions, but apparently he makes a better actor than dancer.
We produce only the highest quality products at very competitive pricing.
At Rutherford Products we are constantly striving to improve based on your suggestions.
An example of this is our infamous "Sound-blaster" Tips.
This is the "loudest tip available anywhere in the new millenium". It has been specially
designed and constructed for pure sound using our newly patented micro sand-glass procedure.

website will bring up a larger picture to give you a better look at the actual product.
