    Just an FYI I've been waiting since Aug 20th, the day I placed an order, for my CaBoots.
    At least I've had regular communication with them, but no boots as yet.
    But I'd agree with Icedevil. Don't know if either are still making them though.

    MC is no longer making boots, nor is JW. You may get lucky and see a pair on eBay from time to time. Other than that, there are two options: CABoots (not very accurate), or making them yourself (very inexpensive!).

    I got an email back in SEP from MC.
    He said that he was still making boots.
    perhaps, things have changed since then.

    That's good news! If you can, send him another E-mail, ask him why he doesn't post here anymore? He might be willing to make another boot run, since it's been a few months since the last JW run. There's probably enought interest.

    Request has been granted.

    I had tried getting ahold of MC back when I was trying to find boots last summer and settled on the CaBoots purely because they said they could do them in my size.
    But I'd be up for a MC set too.

    Hello everybody.

    Sorry I've been out of the loop. Been concentrating on work. I recently been selling trooper boots only. This time I had a business partner who screwed me over big time. So I clipped him.

    I'm taking a break from boots right now. Both trooper and fett. I plan to get back into it, but don't know when right now.

    I will definately let everyone know here when I get back into the game.

    I wish everybody a Happy New Year and I appreciate the love.

    Yeah, I ordered mine early December and got them by Christmas (this year)! It should have come by now. Call them, they are really nice people.

    I'm slowly putting together Boba Version 3.0 and one of the things I want to replace is the boots. I'm currently using some grey suede Pradas that are suitable (they have the black elastic insert....correct height etc>.) but they aren't great (wrong coloured sole being the biggest issue).

    My problem is that because I wear a size 7 ladies/size 5 mens I can't buy from CA Boots. Although several months ago they told me they could make them in any size. Now they say they don't know what I'm talking about....grrrrrr......

    Any suggestions??

    The best pair of boots I have seen so far were custom made and were somewhere in the neighborhood of $450 (one off boots ain't cheap, fellas). I am not sure if the original owner still has them or sold them. I'll let him chime in if he sees this thread (he knows who he is ).

    I have owned both MCs and JWs. Based on fit, finish and color, MC wins. But as far as shape goes, JW is the winner. MCs are kind of narrow and are not wide enough in the toe area. I hope that if a new run is undertaken, that will be corrected.

    I'm pulling "noob" rank here, who are MC & JW?

    I love my MCs and wouldn't trade them for anything but a second, more improved run of MCs.
  19. Apr 7, 2006, 12:23 AM - Re: Best Boba Fett boots ?? #19

    Angela,
    I may be able to give some sound CA boots advice here. I was much in the same boat as you, needing fett boots for a girl. I'm sure you'll find me searchin in some old threads.
    I wear a ladies 7 - 7.5 and after much, and I mean much prying for several months last year. Last august I placed a special order for my CA boots in a ladies size 7, no half sizes and I'll have to wear thin socks with these.

    Due only to the fact JW and MC don't seem to be making any anytime soon.
    If they do.... I'd love some!

    But heres the down fall with the whole thing.
    I was suppose to have my boots by Halloween last year. Halloween came and went.
    Then it was Mid November. So by Mid November and no boots I was a bit concerned. So I spoke on the phone with the manager and many a sales guys there weekly trying to find out when I might have them.
    I got them last week literally, I could have had another baby in that time frame?? J/k not hardly but you get the point.
    They will make them, persist, persist, but they don't make them in house and unfortunatly they are made somewhere else, and the guy who makes them was not on the ball so to speak and spoke broken english.
    As I was told the special orders go in as an individual Fett order and don't go in with the group (mens sizes) order. And well my order was getting over looked (lost) is what I was told.
    So...At this point they new me by name and knew exactly who I was everytime I called "oh yeah the fett boots"
    I hope you can get them and I hope the issue I had didn't spoil it for them to do a womans size, special orders ever. It was a big headache for both parties!
    They did come through just 8 months later.
    Also one other note the toe spikes from omegaman will not fit on them as his spikes are made for the guys toes size so you will have to mod the toe of the boot considerably to get them to fit. Another issue you may find.
    I hope that helps and good luck.
    Feel free to pm me.

    Oh yes....I want to avoid dealing with CA boots like the plague but it seemed they were my only option. Thanks for telling me your story, Christi. First it confirms that they did use to do custom sizes despite the crock of shatner they are feeding me now. And it's just one more reason not to ever deal with them for anything. Others in my Garrison have had similar problems to yours only with Stormie boots and not even custom made. And thanks for the heads up on the toe spikes.

    ~waving~ Hellow Wes!
