Discontinued by Hullachan, once they are gone they are gone.
The new Highland Red ghillie is part of the latest Highland ghillie range from Hullachan. The pump has been designed in partnership with Craig Coussins and is the most innovative Highland ghillie on the market. The Highland Red has a uniquely beautiful one piece upper without a front seam. There is no loop at the front of the ghillie and the front has been cut straight across the top of the foot. This allows for a shorter front which will suit dancers with a more rounded toe shape, where the toes are almost straight across the first 2 or 3 toes or where dancers with a wider foot.
The ghillie forms perfectly around these foot shapes and creates a wonderful tight clean point. It has a narrower sole than previous models which allows a closer fit around the foot and an improved overall shape. It has a revolutionary new arch eyelet system which allows dancers to achieve a beautiful arch profile as well as offering unrivalled arch support. The eyelet allows dancers to pull the ghillie up into their arches so that they are supported and protected.
The Highland Red also has a dual layer insole which has been designed to absorb impact shock as well as provide a soft comfortable pad to dance on, reducing foot fatigue and the risk of injury. The toe and heel have also been redesigned so that they feel secure on the foot. Reinforced stitching creates a very strong, long-lasting ghillie.

How do I work out pump size?
Sizing shoes and pumps can be difficult especially if you are moving between styles.
If you are unsure what size to purchase then doing a tracing of your foot and measuring it can be a useful indicator of what size to go for. Many customers complete a foot tracing as described then contact us directly before ordering.
Here are our top tips for creating an accurate foot tracing.
• Have someone else to do the tracing while you stand up as this will allow the foot to spread to its natural shape.
• Put a book underneath the paper or something hard on the floor if you are doing this on carpet, as it will make it easier to draw around your foot.
• Draw around your foot with socks on (ideally with your dancing socks on) as there is no need to draw between the toes and removes the temptation to ‘spread’ the toes to draw between the toes.

• Do not use a pen with a very thick body as this will distort the length and width measurements.
• Keep the pen vertical at all times when drawing around the foot. The aim is not to draw around the part of the foot, which touches the paper, but to convey the accurate size of your foot.
• Draw a line on the sheet going from the heel to the top of the big toe and measure it.
• Do this for both feet. If different (most peoples are!) for a snug fit use the smaller foot measurement when purchasing pumps, and the larger foot measurement when purchasing jig shoes.
• Compare your foot measurement length to the sizing chart that is displayed with the pump brand in their listing.
• If you are concerned about foot width or any aspect about sizing at all, draw a second line across the widest part of your foot (usually the bunion area or the area behind the big toe) and contact us directly with your measurements.
Please note: that while this method is a good way of assessing the correct size, there is no guarantee that this method will deliver the correct size in 100% of cases. This can be due to a variety of reasons such as the height of the dancers arch, or human error when measuring. We cannot accept liability for return postage in the event where this sizing method is used and the size is incorrect.
