Boots enquiry
« on: Jun 07, 2022, 05:21 AM »
Hey guys, not sure if this question has been asked before (if it has let me know), but I was looking at a pair of motorcycle boots to use in my kit, notably these:

What I'm thinking of doing is this: the top of the boot sits roughly 2-3cm below the knee, I was going to cover up the laces with armor and have the straps run over the top, I noticed the CRLs say that straps and buckles are allowed as long as they appear "in universe", I was going to remove/cover up the finger tab on the top of the boot (I don't really like them anyway), there is a zipper in the inside of the boot, it looks black from the photo but I would probably make up a flap to cover them if need be, and I'm not sure what the pouch (thing?) on the back of the right boot is, but that will come off.

What I wanted to ask was, would I be able to tuck the leg of my flightsuit into the top of the boot leaving it exposed, or would I be better off having the flightsuit cover the top of the boot? Any feedback/criticism is much appreciated.

I'd check the heel height but they are pretty darn cool in general. If they are comfortable to stand and walk in for a few hours (the major issue with all footwear, but motorcycle boots in particular as I understand it) they would work.

As for tucking pants versus pants over the boots - you can do either. But if you are going to the effort of getting these boots Mando's up, I would tuck the pants in and show these boots off because they are rad.

I've got a similar pair of boots I wear around town (casual) so I think I'll be right on that part, but I'll definitely check the heel hight
