 Welcome to the Gaiter Guide…

Whether you’re a total beginner or a professional aerialist, sometimes finding the right aerial boots can be difficult. Choosing the right aerial boots can be hard because they come in different materials, lengths, some have reinforcement options etc.

The purpose of this guide is to help you find out which material will suit your aerial art and which length is best for that discipline.

You will also find out how to shape your gaiter perfectly to your leg and also how to keep them in great condition for years to come.

It is no secret that aerial work hurts! Bruises can arise in places that you never thought possible.

Intro to Aerial Boots

Aerial Boots are also known as aerial trapeze gaiters. They provide protection to the foot and ankle during training and performance. Depending on the length of gaiter, they can also protect all the way up, to the bottom of the knee.

Prevention is always better than cure – so if you are considering starting aerial activities, it would be wise to purchase gaiters before you do any possibly lasting nerve damage to the foot.
