Passable Boots
« on: Apr 16, 2012, 08:06 AM »
I found these boots that actually fit me pretty good.  Will these work?


I was planning on adding a armored plate to the toe and on on the rear heal of the boot.

I must ask where you found those boots. Just my on-official opinion, but an armor plate on each "flap" might look cool as well.

 We have a Costuming shop localy. These were the shops owners personal boots for on of her  steam punk outft.
I got them for 35 bucks. Nice comfy and mostly broken in. I was thinking armor on the toe and the heel and leave the top part of the boot unarmored do to thats were you get most of the flex/play when you walk plus I have a issue with stuff rubbing on the top of my foot do to the shap of my feet. I was going to leave that squarish/retangular section between the sequenced leather armor and toe unarmored.

Got to disagree wi ye bud, these scream for armour plates. Maybe a full size one on the top panel and smaller and not the full size of the panels for the rest would still make them easy to walk with, usually its tha ankle plate that restricts movement.

I could I was going to use Jango style Shin Armor. I wounder if there is a way to use both or make it so that I can easy switch between the two. I really like the looks of the leather armor. It looks like some thing a Mando would wear for casual out of armor times.

Totaly up to you mate, you could strap jango shins to them. But armour plating the sections would look brilliant. Maybe just the top three sections with some sintra could work then a jango spat at the bottom.

I have these boots....http://gothstore.piratemerch.com/images/disorder-301-bpu.jpeg would they be passable if I cover up the chains cause I spent too much on them when I bought them for everyday use to remove them

I also know that shoe strings would not be allowed to show so I would rig up some sort of cover that I can hook on the top and bottom of the places where the laces show that way I can use them to be my mando boots.

I've been wearing those boots for some time. They are nice and I did play around with the armor plates but since I'm in a "light" set I decided against them.
