Peter Fox Shoes for the Phantom of the Opera

Post  Melly on Mon Feb 27, 2012 3:14 pm

This is a kind of "Girly topic" but... Smile

As I'm always looking for historical accessories, I've discovered this website (quite randomly!)...

www .peterfox.com/

This creator made the shoes for the show and MANY famous productions/movies/TV Shows.

Have you ever dream of buying exact Christine shoes tweens? Smile It's quite expensive but it was funny to find these cute boots here:) I wish I was rich!

If I weren't so opposed to having shoes on my feet, I would have a fun time with this site!


A bit off topic, but I noticed your user name - are you the same Melly who runs the Sandor Clegane tumblr?

Hi Melly,

I absolutely adore Peter Fox shoes and own a few pairs. However I have never paid retail for them as like you say, they're quite costly.
If you keep an eye out on eBay, you can often find gently used pairs.
I was able to get my Christine Dressing Gown shoes that way for a steal of a price in comparison to their $300ish price brand new.
One of my other pairs was from the Broadway Fleamarket and were still at least 1/3 of the price brand new and hold a lot more sentimental value with their past history on stage (Christine's Il Muto/Countess shoes).

If you look right now I believe there are a pair of the Peter Fox boots used with the Aminta Costume on eBay. Depends on what size you need though.

Becky > No, it's not me ^^

MasqPhan> Thanks for these details! I can't find anything interesting for me for the moment on ebay Smile But as 9/10 of shoes I try are hurting me, I'm not sure that I'd be able to buy my shoes on the web without trying them before Razz But I'll try to check ebay more often now Very Happy If I can find a non expensive pair someday, it would be great! I need a simple pair of shoes with "talons bobines", so representative of the 18th century for my original costumes Very Happy

Are Peter Fox shoes comfortable? For such a price I hope they are >_<

Peter Fox shoes are hard to begin with. Once you've broken them in, they're better. Very Happy

I've always wanted a pair of Peter Fox boots. They are da bomb. But I've always chickened out in terms of size and shape. I don't want to spend $$$ on shoes that might not fit me. So so far I've just drooled over them online. But one day I WILL own a pair of black "Aminta" boots from them.

UK Phantom, and several of the European productions, get their footwear from Anello & Davide in London. I have a pair of Star Princess boots from the Hamburg production, fully leather lined and dressed in baby blue satin, signed Anello & Davide. I think the model is the Gigi boot, here:

( http://www.handmadeshoes.co.uk/ <---- main site)

The "Tango" boot has been used for Masquerade costumes and possibly Don Juan, while the "Scalloped button boot" looks awfully like the Aminta boots they used in Copenhagen:



I want these too! Want, want, want, want... I should not have been born poor middle class. Laughing

One note on the Peter Fox shoes, they often fit on the small side. So you'd likely have to go up at least a half size. If they're used and well broken in, stretched you might be ok. It turns out Marni Raab's foot is a great match size wise for mine. lol

I'd heard this too, so I went a half size up for my wedding. I'm normally a 10.5, so got an 11, and they were BIG. I think it depends on the particular shoe. I got the Lucia shoes. But I wasn't about to complain because I bought a new pair on eBay for 75% off their retail of $475. A 10 would have been better, but finding Peter Fox shoes at all above a 9.5 is extremely rare.

That's very handy to know. The sizing makes me so in doubt in terms of buying a pair. But I guess it's better to have the size run a bit bigger, and wear a sole in it, than not being able to wear it at all.

BTW, welcome to the forum!

*whistles*

Now those are some NICE boots. Seem like longer versions of the Aminta boot? Good thing they're a couple sizes too big for me, so I can't be tempted! Very Happy
