Trapeze Boots - Protection for High Fliers!
I’ve had a sudden slew of interest in these so I thought I’d put them up on tumblr. These are trapeze boots, designed to protect the shins and feet whilst sliding over a trapeze bar, as unprotected legs can get bruised and rubbed raw. They also help hold any costume in place!
I was first approached to make a pair of these for someone via my Dad’s office, whose usual boot maker had retired. Working from her specifics - and with the reassurance that she wasn’t going to expire horribly if design #1 didn’t work - this was the style that was settled on.
I do NOT list these on Etsy, they’re only shown on my social media and website pages, because I have to custom-fit every single pair! A standard pair (as shown) in black, with laces, costs £60 and I can ship anywhere in the world.
Reblogging for reference as I’ve wanted to buy some of these for ages and they’re hard to come by!
