Gary Lyness & Paula Moulton
Gary and Paula were introduced in a bar by an opera singer back in 2000 and have since become one of the most inspiring couples in the world, winning their first ever international competition in the Netherlands in 2011, at their very first attempt, when they'd never even danced a wheelchair dance competition before! Despite the memory in the Netherlands, Malta is their favourite place to dance. They love the comfort in our shoes with Gary loving that he can 'put on a brand new pair and be on form' whilst Paula loves the simple change of moving the buckles to the inside of the shoe to make them easier to get on.
Despite their successes, Gary admits to managing to kick Paula in the head whilst dancing, however Paula has also managed to drop Gary on his head! Away from dance, they love to enjoy time at the theatre and at musicals either locally in Manchester or in the West End in London.
Gary wears our 'Brogue' - often in custom colours! Paula wears our 'Tasha', which is custom made for her so that the fastening buckles are on the inside ankle rather than outside, so that it makes life easier to put the shoes on and take them off.
