Trapeze BootsProtection 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!

If people want to let you go, just let them do it. They may not understand who you are. So don’t play around with fire; don’t give them their cake and let them eat it too. Here is your rule of thumb: they either commit to you or get none of you.
