Cowboy Boots ?
« on: Jan 03, 2010, 01:08 AM »
Was wondering if anyone tried cowboy boots on their custom..  Since other bounty hunters in the clone wars have a western feel to them,was wondering if a mando ever had cowboy boots..Thanks for the answers !!!! :)

I tried it a while ago and wasn't happy with the way it looked. It just clashed, somehow, with my sense of aesthetics, but feel free to try for yourself.

I am not sure if I have seen a Mando with actual cowboy boots, but I am positive I have seen a Mando with spurs on the boots. The spurs keep that western look, but can look good with regular Star Wars type boots. I agree with Buruk about trying it out with your kit and seeing how you like it.

I don't think anyone has done it before to my knowledge on an official kit.  How they fit into the overall armor set would determine if they look acceptable.  I like the old west style look myself, which is why I use lots of leather in my kit.

We have one in our Rancor Clan. Bandolier wears a boot that could be considered Western. He also wears spurs with them. The boot is a lighter color. More of a blunt end instead of the typical CB boot they call roach killers. Roach Killers are the real pointy toe that you can get into corners and stomp bugs. Bando's boot also does not have the Western stitching on the top of the foot (I think). If it does, it does not stand out. His work, but if the were the real high heeled, roach killin', Porter Wagner wearing flashy kind, I think they will not.

There are other horse riding boots besides Western. English riding boots are more conservative in style. You can find ankle height to over the calf style. A lot are zip-up or slip on style. Try a regular Paddock boot.

Maybe I'll snap some picks of the boots I have around here and post them up.

Yeah, i have cowboy boots with spurs.
 

honestly, most biker boots like these look good if you cut off the straps around the ankle/ heal area and they look much better >>>  http://www.viewpoints.com/images/review/2007/209/12/1185645409-74421_full.jpg
