    There are two different kinds of shoes, for each of the two different kinds of dancing.

    The soft shoes, also called pumps or ghillies, are leather, with a suede split sole. Flat, and really soft and flexible like ballet slippers.



    The hard shoes, or "jig" shoes, are the heavier ones with the fiberglass tips and heels that make the noise, like what most people recognize as Irish dancing ever since Riverdance and Lord of the Dance hit the U.S. in the late 90's

    Maybe these would help?

    They're Irishish.

I would think if it's a stress fracture, the pain would never go away as I was putting weight on it.

    I'd been dancing for a while, but always in shoes. Never any foot problems. Last week was the first "formal class" I'd taken in a while. I know that stress fractures are usually from prolonged, repeated force... but could it develop as quickly as in a one hour class?

    Honestly, I think it's just my paranoia that's telling me it could be a stress fracture, because the thought of having to rest it for that long and miss class is not something I want to think about!!

    Every day of training counts! The world championships are in Philadelphia in 2009, the first time they've been held outside of Ireland or Scotland. Will you come watch me?
    The primary difference is the swelling, though you can have a very minor stress fracture with no noticeable swelling. Most likely you've strained the muscle, but as G&P, both require rest - bag it for this week - and see how things improves for next week. I fractures the joint in my big toe and it about a week before I could walk without pain.

    (It was back when a bare footed placekicker appeared for U Hwaii. I thought it was cool and gave it a try not realizing he was kicking soccer style, I kicked it toe on. Ouch, that killed my placekicking for the season. Coach was Po'ed big time.)

    Oh yea- if you're appearing in the world championships, of course I'll come down and root for you. Maybe I'll bring my shillelagh along. A little crack behind the knee should take care of any competition.

    Thanks, but I don't need a Jeff Gillooly to win for me
