Can these boots be used?
« on: Jan 11, 2017, 10:31 PM »
So, i saw someone else ask this question, but it was over a different style of boot.
I was wondering if it is okay for me to use these Western styled boots, as i was going to have a set of gaiters and toe plates on my boots, and would like to keep a sleek and tall look that these give, as my only combat boots are more akin to those on a tank than a medical build


These are the boots in question, along with the most basic thing i had on hand for a toe plate. A spare square of carboard

Shouldn't be an issue.  No logos, laces or zippers, right? 

Toe plate and gaiters would cover any earthly western stitching that cowboy boots often have.  The stippled leather could easily pass for rancor hide.

Nope. All logos are internal patches, type DD boot, pointed toe and no lacing or zipping.

I never thought of it as being rancor hide, thanks. I'll definitely be working on some natural weathering for the gaiters to make them look less than store new.
