Title: Passable Boots
Post by: Briikase Runi on Apr 16, 2012, 08:06 AM
I found these boots that actually fit me pretty good.  Will these work?

I was planning on adding a armored plate to the toe and on on the rear heal of the boot.

I must ask where you found those boots. Just my on-official opinion, but an armor plate on each "flap" might look cool as well.

 We have a Costuming shop localy. These were the shops owners personal boots for on of her  steam punk outft.
I got them for 35 bucks. Nice comfy and mostly broken in. I was thinking armor on the toe and the heel and leave the top part of the boot unarmored do to thats were you get most of the flex/play when you walk plus I have a issue with stuff rubbing on the top of my foot do to the shap of my feet. I was going to leave that squarish/retangular section between the sequenced leather armor and toe unarmored.

Got to disagree wi ye bud, these scream for armour plates. Maybe a full size one on the top panel and smaller and not the full size of the panels for the rest would still make them easy to walk with, usually its tha ankle plate that restricts movement.

I could I was going to use Jango style Shin Armor. I wounder if there is a way to use both or make it so that I can easy switch between the two. I really like the looks of the leather armor. It looks like some thing a Mando would wear for casual out of armor times.

Totaly up to you mate, you could strap jango shins to them. But armour plating the sections would look brilliant. Maybe just the top three sections with some sintra could work then a jango spat at the bottom.

I have these boots....http://gothstore.piratemerch.com/images/disorder-301-bpu.jpeg would they be passable if I cover up the chains cause I spent too much on them when I bought them for everyday use to remove them

I also know that shoe strings would not be allowed to show so I would rig up some sort of cover that I can hook on the top and bottom of the places where the laces show that way I can use them to be my mando boots.

I've been wearing those boots for some time. They are nice and I did play around with the armor plates but since I'm in a "light" set I decided against them.

I have taken my boots of which the picture I showed you and cut the chains off and now have the armor so I don't need the chains anymore plus I have been told the boots I have will suffice with a little modding done to them so I shall begin so if you see the picture of the boots imagine them without chains and you can see that they will look good when I am done with them and I will post pictures as soon as I am able.

Cool I'm working on armoring mine

My boots have zippers on the right side of the left boot and on the left side of the right boot. So my question is this how should I cover those up so they don't show?
Title: Re: Passable Boots

If they're on the inside you're not too bad. If they are ankle boots, you could just add spats to help hide them. Longer boots you can always add armour. But as i said you should be fine. Laces are the main thing that need covering.

Well my mom is a professional seamstress(retired) and a long time back when I was doing fort re-enactments she made boot covers for my dad so his laces would show on his military fort uniform and she said she might still have them. so I shouldn't need to worry about the laces or zippers showing at all and my boots are thigh high boots.

I don't know exactly where to post this so....http://a2.zassets.com/images/z/1/6/9/6/4/1/1696414-p-2x.jpg This is what I have bought to cover the laces on my boots and with a few tweaks and a little modding and paint it should work out well. What do you think what are you thoughts on this?

That is going to take more then a little modding. Per the CRLs any sports armor must be  so modded as to no longer be recognizable as sports armor. There is more to it, but I am not going to hijack this thread to explain it. If you read up on the CRLs you will see what I am saying.

Could someone send me a link to that specific CRL cause I am unable to locate it.

You will find the CRL guidelines on the Home page, i suggest you read through them all ;) .
