The Boots

Tap Dogs is very proud of our association with Blundstone.

Dein Perry was asked to create a 5 minute routine for the ABC program Performance Space in 1994. It was set on location in a factory resembling the Industrial environment where he worked as a Fitter and Turner. The clothes the dancers wore were overalls and blue-collar work gear. It became very apparent that a pair of standard tap shoes would look out of place so it was a natural progression to add tap plates to work boots. Blundstone were the boots of choice for Industrial workers and was what Dein wore as a Fitter. They happened to convert very well into fantastic tap boots.
