Those look pretty cool, actually. They're made of a nylon cordura material, right? I think they might be ok.

Do they come in other colors?

Will wait for an app team member, but I think they would be okay as spats.

I believe there are a couple of OM's who use them as a base for shins ;D as long as there are no visible logos i don't see why they would not be approvable.

I just thought it would be a cool look for spec ops or a tech mando, that is why I suggested it to Jacad

Armor them or theyre no good... too recoginizable as real world snake guards otherwise. It's bad enough we accept catchers shins because of the Mara Jade loophole. These would be fine as a base, as long I can't see em.

That said, for the price... doesn't seem like a great investment choice for modding unless you have an old pair laying around that aren't in use.

+10.

These things use velcro and shiny nylon in their construction.  Very much a recognizable earth garnment, and would detract from the other-worldly feel of the star wars. 

a suitable replacement made from more swarzy fabrics could be made any competent seamstress in a day.

REALY , i had no idea what they were for , far as less being real worldly . But hay i'm sure if there's plenty of snakes around where you stay then they'd be easily recognised

armor them really? As soon as I saw them I thought legacy armor. How many people  know what snake guards are, especially people do conventions?

Really. 

I do conventions, and so do all my other Herpetology friends.
