Another boot question
« on: Nov 26, 2019, 06:30 PM »
Would Doc Martens boots be too recognizable to wear? I plan for boot armor.

You would definitely have to cover up the laces and anything woth a doc Martin logo on them but other than that I would imagine they’re fine

We aren't concerned about the shape of the boots being recognizable.  There's only so much you can do with a general foot like shape, so all the various shapes of footwear that exist on earth probably also exist in the Star Wars universe.  The identifying logos and other brand representations, on the other hand, would be different, so you have to remove or cover logos.  Also, laces on footwear are practically unseen in Star Wars (though laces do exist on other garments), so you have to cover the laces with spats or armor.

would the yellow stitching around the sole need to be blacked?  i'm a n00b here but that's kind of the de facto doc marten identifier.  i'm also looking at some doc's for boots.

I hope not. The yellow is going to be part of my armor color.

Doc Martens has Chelsea boots, which are pretty close to what Boba wore. No laces to worry about, and no obnoxious logos. Just a thought. Still has the yellow stitching. Model number is 2976 I believe.
