Default Big Foot Stilts for sale

If anyone is interested in buying NEW Big Foot stilts, please email me off list. Due to a canceled order, the mfg.
MAY have some stilts available. Low four figures. If you know Big Foots, you know that this is an extraordinary
opportunity. These are the stilts that took me through TWO marathons (26 miles each, plus probably 100 miles of training)
with out ANY damage apart from wearing the soles down. These are the stilts Disney, RBBB, Universal Studios and other discerning buyers order by the dozen every year.

I stand, walk, skip, RUN, jump and more on my Big Foot stilts. These are the original Bending Toe (and ankle) patented stilts. As comfortable a stilt as it gets. As stable a stilt as it gets.

Normally a when someone like you or me orders a set, we pay in full and wait six months for delivery.
Not in this case. Due to "undisclosed" reasons, a small producer has canceled his order. From what I understand, you could take delivery in less than 30 days.

10 times the cost of a set of drywall stilts. Big bucks? You bet! And worth every penny. As I asked myself when I ordered my second set, "how much is it worth to NOT squash some kid?" or have a stilt break and cause me to fall?.

If you are seriously interested email me off list: Stretch@StiltWalker.com. I don't expect these to last long. The mfg. is up to his eyebrows in alligators right now, with a big rush order. So as a favor, I am posting this. enjoy!

more details:

I'm double checking on the price, I know it is under Four Thousand (US$4000), but this is what I have so far.

> Serial # 660 - Disney Average shoe size about men's size 10.5 (toe 4.25" and heel 7.5") This is based on survey of shoe sizes. It will fit all Disney employees, girls or guys. Stilt height is 37.5" tall from ground to top of shoe plate. Calf elevation is also based on averages and is 15.75" tall (top of shoe plate to center of calf muscle strap assembly. Elevation is based on survey of MANY users for comfort. This is newly made with NEWEST features of stilt building, including "axle savers" and new chemical and mechinical bonding systems for bearings pushed in aluminum tubing. Also has newest side poles, a special new stronger extrusion just for side poles only. Has "Disney heel cup system" that I developed for them. It allows shoes to move forward and backward for positioning for ball and toe of feet. Has advanced Velcro shoe plate and heel cup for VERY POSITIVE shoe positioning when shoes are equiped with velrco hook soling and velrco hook heel. (I will modifiy first pair of shoes free for each stilt) I actually have a patent on this shoe fastening system, which is only thing that Disney and _snip_____ will use due to the turn around of employees that will use these stilts.

Default SII SurStilt Sale

Hello All!

(Intro - Other than being a new customer, I am not affiliated in any way with SurStilt)

SurStilt, the only 'reasonably priced' maker of a stilts with two supporting calf braces is having a crazy sale. They said the sale is in effect until they sell them all.

At the following link, you can buy two different sizes of stilts and here are the terms:
-Buy one, get the second half off (249.99, 124.95; this is less expensive than the MSRP on the SurStilt site at stilts.com)
-No Tax
-Free shipping to the continental USA

Notes:
-225 lb limit, completely customizeable (with screwdriver and wrenches) to any size foot, calf, leg, etc.
-Apparently they are doing this to get rid of these aluminum ones as they just came out with a lighter (and more expensive) product made from magnesium.
-I tried these models out a a local showroom and they are far superior to the one-calf-brace version.
-While BigFoot stilts (or jaywalkers) are MUCH better, you could buy 1 new set of SurStilts per year for 15 years and still spend less money; I have had my current DuraStilts for about 5 years with minor repairs


For more info (or to purchase):

If anyone has any questions, let me know.
