I inherited a pair of marahalltown sky walkers with my Chewie and at a recent troop the strap that anchors in my ankle and heel broke completely. I know these are discontinued at this point, but there seems to be no parts available either. Have any of you that have these had to deal with replacing this part. Without it I am basically immobile, I managed to finish the troop but wouldn’t choose to do so again if I can avoid it.

You can probably just screw your shoes down to the stilt instead of using the strap. Or another idea, maybe rivet in some regular drywall stilt straps instead.

I found some Dura Stilt straps that I was able to anchor onto the footplate. I'll test them out sometime this week, they are a little more narrow as they anchor to the plate instead of the sides so hopefully it'll work.

I replaced one of my toe straps with bolted in dura-stilt straps. You should be okay doing that.
