The Bleyer Hep Cat is a rock & roll era classic.
Bleyer Hepcat hails back to the hey-day of the rock ‘n’ roll era. It offers clean lines and minimalistic detail together with a robust sole. This high-quality lace-up shoe gives excellent sure-footedness for dancers of all abilities.
Our standard pair come in genuine soft matt black leather teamed with white Durasoft, a soft, durable and popular alternative to leather.
You can choose to pay a modest extra fee to design your own special pair of Hepcats! Pick from a wide variety of colour combinations to make them truly your own!
Custom Orders are a one-off production, so they do take a little longer to produce. But, unique to you, they will make all the difference to your look on the dance floor!
Bleyer Hepcat is available as standard in Bleyer size 39 to 46 (covering UK 5 to 10). Please note that this style is a relatively tight fit all over, even when compared to other styles of Bleyer men’s shoes. If you are deciding between sizes, we strongly recommend that you select the larger of the two.

Cell Rubber Sole
The Hep Cat (BS7500), Balboa (BS7500) and Saddle (BS7139) are produced with the Cell Rubber Sole are available from size 38 and up. As an alternative for sizes where the Cell Rubber sole is not available, the EVA sole with a heel is normally used. If your sole choice is critical then please check with us before placing your order.
The Cell Rubber Sole
The material used is a high-tech innovation that gives you the ideal combination of a light yet hardwearing soles for dancing. The look and feel of this sole type is not what you would expect from rubber, to look and touch 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.
EVA Sole with Heel (when Cell Rubber option is unavailable)
The 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, swivelling 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 also Vegan friendly.
