"dress[..] himself first while walking on a wire, then within a hoop of fire,

But they won't let him wear the shoes.
...a week last Saturday when, while wearing the shoes, he fell from a

broken his metatarsal bone.
Of course, it's all the fault of the size 18 shoes.

Valerik Kashkin has been told by his bosses that he can no longer
wear his giant comedy shoes because they are a health risk.
When clown shoes are outlawed, only outlaws will wear clown shoes.
