I dunno about using a full biker jacket for a vest. Seems a bit too hefty. I use a biker vest for my mando vest and it's even pretty thick

new rock boots from ebay auction ... never seen this blocky sole design/style before on this type of boot , they looked right for my kit . remind me a bit of Durge in style ... trooped in them today actually and they are sooooo much more comfortable than my old boots.

Ha, aye, just saw this thread again, noticed they were new rocks. Still, i spend a lot of my time around people with them. :P Not for me, combat boots all the way, but i know more than enough 5'something peeps rocking 6" high stompy boots.

You've done a really good job covering them up, and aye, that blocky side pattern works really well with this. And yeah, they tend to be really comfortable. they are designed for dancing e.t.c. in all night, so you'd hope they'd be okay for a few hours of walking about ;)

Hi Talos Kot
I am vertically challenged too and noticed you added height to your boots. What glue did you use to do this as I am looking to do the same.
Thanks
Andy

Hello Andy,
            No glue used, I got the boots on ebay ( used )  Newrocks they just suited the look and added height was a big bonus  :) I removed some of the metal hardware they do the job and are really comfy for trooping in.
You could add height to your existing boots using cobblers sole material and a good chunky sole and heel to finish using a good quality leather glue .... I also did this for my Vader costume.  PM me if I can help
