Aerial Gaiters in the film ‘The Greatest Showman’12/06/2019
I am so excited that I have the opportunity to write about this! The aerial gaiters from ‘the’ film. I saw the film The Greatest Showman with a couple of circus friend when it first came out. We were disappointed as we didn’t know it was going to be a musical and we wanted more aerial circus. (I now love the songs.)
So a few months ago, I saw a job advert on Facebook for aerial boots. I thought it would be ideal but then I found out that the creator, Danielle made the boots in the film. I just knew that they were very pretty but didn’t know where they were from.
It turns out, she made 18 pairs for the film! OMG that sounds like quite a choice I’d like to have.
I guess if you are reading this, you’d probably know what the boots are but in case you don’t, these are boots that are used as leg and feetprotection when doing aerial circus. Danielle was one of the very first companies to start making boots.
I wear my boots when I do a lot of rope or if I’ve had a break and the skin gets soft. Sometimes new moves really take the skin off. It’s making me feel squeamish writing this.
She provides ‘off the peg’ sizes as well as custom made boots. The materials available include leather, suede, denim and PVC. They can be shipped worldwide and she has sold boots to aerialists in over 50 countries.
UK Aerial Championships
Aerial Boots sponsored the UK Aerial Championships for the past 2 years and the current world aerial silks champion is a customer and won in boots made by Danielle. Aerial Boots are going to be sponsoring this years UK Aerial Championships too!
If you would like some pretty aerial gaiters like in the film, you can buy them here. They are gorgeous so best used for performances to keep them nice rather than regular training.
