I'm pretty sure that a lot of you will know this effect, but like most of Copperfield's close-up effects, is this one available to the public?
I've searched everywhere and the word "air coppers" keeps popping up (whatever that means).

Also if it isn't for sale, does anyone know whether Copperfield has all the rights to perform this still.

Thanks very much.

Hey J_C,
I have never seen it on the market, but if it isn't, would it be so hard to just gimmick your own baby shoe? Keeping on a similar topic, what are some of the more unique ring flight final destinations that some of you have seen?

I believe this is a Chris Kenner effect and it was, at one time, commercially available. Check out Hank Lee's website. He might still have it available for sale.

Thanks for your help.

I could knock one up in my workshop, but I first wanted to know whether it could be bought or not, as to me it's a bit unethical really.

I've searched around for all Chris Kenner effects and it's not available anywhere. Thanks a lot though Marty.

I think I might make it. I wonder if I'll get strange looks if I try and purchase 1 shoe - maybe I should buy a pair.

Thanks.

All this it is is a glorified Ring flight. Buy a R##L, baby shoe, extra lace, glue, and away you go. That is if it is not for sale by the originator.

Many of Copperfield's smaller effects come from Chris Kenner. The Ring on Shoe, Torn Asunder and Linking Rubber Bands being just a few.

I doubt you'd be able to track down these originals, as I imagine Copperfield would have the sole performing rights to them for at least the next few years.

The only way we might see the originals hit the mainstream magic market is if Copperfield and Kenner had a major falling out... We can only hope! Smile

Richard Sanders has a version of this on the market. It is kind of cumbersome from what I understand. But the ring ends up on your own shoe! Whcih makes more sence than a baby shoe. Why would you carry around a baby shoe? It smacks of "gimmick". Anywho, just my 2 cents.

Air Coppers are what copperfield calls his tiny shoes, like air jordan's.

I found one on penguinmagic
http://www.penguinmagic.com/product.php?ID=S3159

in 2 of the 4 times I have seen david Copperfield
he has performed this and it plays big.. of course is more because of Copperfield´s than because of the trick itself..

I don't own it.. so I cant comment on the quality of this one.

Kenner created it for Copperfield. They do not sell it, and would hope nobody RIPS IT OFF. Think about the ethics.

I do not know of it being a rip-off, but I know with certainty that Hocus Pocus used to sell a ring to baby shoe a few years ago. Don't know if they still do. If I remember correctly, the shoes were red with white stripes.
