Toe Straps

Hi All -
I need to replace the toe straps on our Merlin and was wondering if anybody had any advice on which ones / make to get that strong, not going to give too much with use and don't perish too quickly?
 
 TIA

We replaced our toe straps last year with bespoke ones made by Chris Gould at Creation Covers. Really pleased with them and most comfortable.

Thank you - out of interest how are they 'bespoke' as such? Did he require specific measurements etc ?

The boat I own was built in 1969 so I had two long straps made, rather than the more usual four straps. I measured the old straps and sent to Chris who priced them up, added eyelets as requested and sent very rapidly back to me.

If it's any help at all, I took the seat belts out of Jo's scrap Peugeot & used my mother's 1946 Singer to sew over the ends....
