Acceptable boots?
« on: Apr 13, 2012, 11:02 PM »
I was out shopping today with the wife at a DSW and I found the boots below. They were laceless/strapless and are extremely comfortable. They were marked from 130.00 down to 30.00 so I snatched them. Im assuming they're passable due to no laces but if Im wrong feel free to set me straight :D. If they're A-OK Im planning on wearing them like a pair of Boba boots since they arent high top boots as you can tell but I have a few questions. On the inside of each boot there is a zipper (to get my foot in obviously). From what Ive read exposed zippers arent allowed so whats a good way to hide a zipper on boots? Also besides a heel plate to hide the little tiny logo on the back whats standard armor to put on this type of boot? Im assuming toe spikes but since my pants will be covering the top part of the boots I dont think armor up above would be too logical. Would it look goofy to just put on a heel plate and toe spikes?

On the side shouldn't be a problem, especially where your pant leg will cover most of it. Also, a heel and toe plate should look fine, I mean look at Boba, he only had toe spikes on soft boots.

Ths an awesome find! The zipper will be fine (I have the same on my boots), and your armor idea will work as well. Worst comes to worse if you thought it looked funny you could add a plate to the top of the foot. But I don't think you'll have any issues.
