Sorry - 1 more tack question - stirrup irons

Hello! Sorry for all the recent questions about tack. When I bought Gem I had to settle for the tack I could afford at the time. My big 3-0 (gasp!) birthday is coming up and my husband wanted gift ideas. I figured that upgrading my tack would be nice. While I was on my quest for the full cheek snaffle I want to put Gem in (found a nice Mikmar one I want to try) I ran across a beautiful pair of irons, but I can't seem to find them again I am hoping if I describe them maybe someone on here has seen them or uses them.

They were not your typical iron and I think ran around $95-110. They were all stainless steel -no black rubber on the sides. The eye where it connects to the leather is at an angle (Like the Hem Sprenger minus the black sides) to prevent twisting. The best part was the actual foot pad area itself. It was set at an angle to help encourage heels down and prevents the toe being pushed deeper into the iron and the foot getting caught. If you spin the iron when mounting it serves as a nice aide to mount.

Has anyone seen this iron? I am a horrible online searcher and can't seem to find it again. I thought there was a female name attached to it, but am not certain of this. Thanks!!

O.O I have never heard of a stirrup iron like that before! I do know that you can get angled treads, though.

They were probably something like those Stubbens posted above, and then you can buy the slanted pads separately.

I've see irons with the offset eye and I've seen stirrups with the footbed that pivots down ... but I can't find both in the same iron. (I also found some MDC irons I'm drooling over, but can't justify buying)

I don't have anything to add about stirrups. However, I just wanted to say...

NEVER EVER EVER be sorry to ask a question. Seriously. Always ask, and don't worry about asking too many - you can't!

So I think these are them. My husband found them for me. I thought they had an angled eye for the leathers, but apparently that was a different pair. I've looked at way too many. Has anyone tried these? How about ones with the eye set 90 degrees from normal? Would one be better than another?
