Hello! Welcome to my trapeze boot (gaiters) website, My name is Sammy.
All these trapeze boots (gaiters) were made at Temple Cloud Circus in South Bristol, and are handmade by me with leather that is a by-product of the meat industry. I also up-cycle leather clothes into boots. I am developing vegan Trapeze Boots, I found some new Artificial Leather in India JAN19 – so the boots currently in are made from this new thicker material, there are some available to order, the ones I have are ok for static work, it’s not as strong as leather but its the best material I have found so far.. I have some found as well, some very very thick vegan leather, I think it will be ok for Swinging Trapeze, I’m looking for an Artist to try them out, if your a Vegan Swinging Trapeze Artist and want to trial my first pair of exceptionally thick Vegan Boots PLEASE get in touch with your measurements, I will only charge shipping to make you a pair to do this research for me.
I have over 50 ready-made pairs in stock, most of them are in Temple Cloud trapeze school south Bristol. I have all different sizes and colours if you can make it down to have a look you will enjoy all the choice.
Some of my boots are also in a display at Aircraft Circus if you’re in London. http://aircraftcircus.com.
If you require a pair made especially for you – or you would like me to find out what ones I have in stock that might fit you – please click on this link and send me the relevant measurements.
Things to consider when trying on trapeze boots.
- The leather will stretch more than you imagine, so you need to consider the lacing gap needs to be big enough to accommodate this.
- Before lacing them, pull them up, so that when you do them up they are tight.
- Suede boots have more grip on the equipment and will feel more secure if you’re a beginner artist.
- You can also get longer laces from http://www.biglaces.com. This way so long as the tongue is big enough to go around your calf completely, a smaller size pair could still fit you, You will have a bigger laced area. Some people like this look.
I always have black in stock,
All the for sale items on this site are in stock and will be shipped within a week, I will get to the post office usually within 1-2 days, but sometimes it may take longer.
If you require different design, a tailor-made pair, or a pair similar to the pictures in the sold category, I can make you a pair within 8 weeks.
I use satin ribbon, lace, and sparkly trims. Recently I’ve started adding a star design to my boots. just ask if you want something different.
One last note ….I am dyslexic so if you find any irritating typos or spelling mistakes on any of my websites – I welcome being told where they are so I can correct them.
