    The Bleyer Saddle, which is based on a design that was popular in the 1950s, is a mainly white low heeled shoe characterized by a plain toe and distinctive black panel in the mid-foot area. The clean look of the shoe makes it very versatile and so can be worn with any number of outfits. The Bleyer Soles serve to enhance your movement across the dance floor and have been specially designed for this purpose.

    Bleyer Saddles are offered in black & white as standard, although ANY colour combinations can be requested through a Special Order. If you would like more information about placing a Special Order, please get in touch.

    The Bleyer Saddle is a high quality, lace-up shoe. The materials used for the uppers on the standard model are matt leather.

    The Bleyer Saddle is produced with the Cell Rubber Sole as standard. Bleyer Saddles in sizes 36-37 are produced with the White EVA sole with a heel as standard. If you prefer a different sole, then consider making a custom order.

    The Cell Rubber Sole

    The material used is a high-tech innovation that gives you the ideal combination of light yet hardwearing soles for dancing. The look and feel of this sole type is at odds with most people’s idea of a rubber sole, it seems like hard plastic. Dancing on this sole offers slightly more grip and a more sure-footed feel than the other Bleyer composite soles (except the non-slip sole) or leather soles. This sole will tolerate being worn outdoors, and can be wiped down ready for dancing. These soles are Vegan friendly.

    The White EVA Sole with Heel

    The White EVA Sole with heel is a popular sole for swing dancers. Of all the Bleyer synthetic soles, the white sole offers the most freedom of movement for sliding, swiveling and gliding easily across the floor, offering dancers a similar feel to suede. The addition of the heel makes the shoe feel more like a street shoe rather than the flat sole options. These soles are Vegan friendly.


    The shoes themselves are fitted on the unisex last and so they fit similar to the Bleyer Rock'n'Roll, Boogie Woogie and Lindy Lace. For wider shoes please consider the Bleyer Charleston. Bleyer shoes are marked with European sizes and they tend to fit approximately one size small compared to typical European sizes. So, for example if you normally wear a European 38 you would probably want a Bleyer 39.

    As we are a UK based site, UK sizes are listed first in our drop-down options. We have used our experience to translate the Bleyer sizes to UK sizes. This means that there are half sizes in some, but not all, UK sizes. This is simply as a result of the translations, so if your feet are a half size that is not listed, we would normally suggest that you select the next half size up. If you’re still not sure which size to select please call or email for advice. Although we are confident that these translations work for most people, this information is not a guarantee and should be used as a guide only.

Standard products purchased between 1st December and Monday 23rd December can be returned with normal terms and conditions at any time up to 10th Jan the following year.



    Wherever any customizations are offered, these items are classes as a “special order”.
