I have aluminum ones now that leave a rub on my boots and sometimes bang me in the shins when I carry it, but it's not a huge deal to me. I just have to be extra careful to make sure when I throw my fender over the seat, to make sure it is secure. I have been whacked in the face with a wooden stirrup and that hurt enough, I imagine an aluminum one would leave me with a broken nose.

I wish I knew someone with those Walls ones. They look interesting, but are rather pricey for my poor self.

Im wondering about angled/ crooked stirrups too!

My husband cant move from the knee down on this left leg cause he had Encephalitis when he was a 18 months old and now he has Cerebral Palsy from the knee down. In a regular stirrup he cant keep his foot flat and so it goes sideways and it gets sore on the outer part of his foot. I thought made these types of stirrups might allow him to keep his foot flat so that his weight is on the bottom of his foot instead of the side.

Ive looked into Oxbow too but heard negative things about them.

But you aren't where I am, so I can't just ask to borrow them for a day. That's what I meant.
