What boots do you use for your mando?
« on: Jan 08, 2014, 08:47 AM »
I'm struggling to find suitably plain and laceless boots for my first kit so I was wondering what everyone else used?
Some links would be fantastic too. ;)

Thanks. :)

I personally use Jedi boots. I know a few others do also. Just go to amazon and look them up, you can find them for around 30 to 50 usually. Price fluctuations.

Engineer boots also work very well.

Looking to upgrade to Chelsea boots, though...

I use standard combat boots or doc marten's type things, then I wear leather spats over them to cover the laces.

70's vintage motorcycle boots here. They had this great steel plate on the front and lots of buckles. Honestly can not remember what they were bought for, but they made nice Mando boots. Planning to add some 360 degree armor plates to the back and sides beneath the straps at some point for a more "beefy" look  :P

Mine are a pair of leather laceless boots with a zipper on the side that I got from a DSW for an awesome price. Extremely comfortable and as far as Ive seen so far pretty much waterproof.

I use these for my Jedi costume, and I'm going to use them for my Mando, too.

They're some calf-high, faux-buckle boots with the zipper up the in-seam (so no laces).  They took some time to break in, but they're fairly comfortable to wear around.

Good call Tips! And with that steel toe in there if anyone decides to get mouthy with you then you can give them some free mandalorian dental work  8)
