    Thanks Wes, I must say what Ive seen ofthe boots you offer I like them better then CA. Dont get me wrong Im not saying CA is bad but it is made from leather.

    I got my trooper boots from them and they are great.

    Well, I don't know anything about the first run, and as far as I know this is the second run... I'm glad you took care of the first group of people, but we are a whole new group and it seems to me that weekly or bi-weekly updates aren't too much to ask. Snake Fett's question wasn't out of line, but you seemed to get tweaked at him... and now at me.

    In any case, you seem to be very touchy in regards to being asked about the progress of your runs... would you prefer we NOT ask how things are going?
    Perhaps it's not the response, but the "tone" of the inquiry. And it should be noted that JW is not "doing" these runs...the boot maker is.

    As a "Newbie" to this forum, I did "lurk" on the first run thread and kept myself informed...that's easy for anyone to do. Regardless, I jumped on the second run. By all accounts, JW has done an outstanding job and the majority of this board is pleased.

    It was also noted that it would be a two month window before delivery.

    Perhaps it's just me....then again, Rome wasn't built in a day.

    Thanks for the update, Wes!!

    yeah i got in on the second run fully expecting not to get these till late summer/fall or so. i too followed the first run and damn near busted my keyboard replying to get on the second run. since the CA boots came out everyone seemed to drop wes like a bad habit for the price of boots i want to get a pair and not worry about getting a more accurate set later, there are other parts that im gonna upgrade at a later date but since boots are far and few between i wanted to do it right the first time. besides i honestly dont believe the CA boots will be the same price whan they start using canvass.

    I agree with you. I think they may jack the prices up because of the demand...

    Re: Boba Fett boots 2nd run: UPDATE 28 JUNE

    Thought just drop a positive line in support of JW....

    I simply can't wait to get my boots & have every confidence in JW & his boot maker that we're going to get an absolutely fantastic product!

    Thanks again for doing this for us JW!

    Re: Boba Fett boots 2nd run: UPDATE 28 JUNE

    Well, it's not the news I was looking for.....
    Good news first: The DO have soles and the side gore (elastic on the sides).
    Bad news: They are still waiting on the gray material. Evidently, the supplier didn't ship until this week (so I'm told) and the material is/was due in today.
    I do promise y'all this: IF this turns into the fiasco the last run turned into, I *WILL* refund everyone's money and tell my boot maker to take a long walk off a short pier. (darn no cussing TDH rule....)
    I'll update again Monday.

    thanks for the update Wes. Either way it turns out i know you'll make it right. I'm not worried. Hell i've be waitin for a set clone armor for the past 2 years thats completely paid for.ugh! But i still have hope for it.
    I believe everyone involved with this 2nd run would agree that your a very generous and trust worthy person.

    Oh yeah...I don't wanna see this fall through. I'm willing to wait as long as it takes. Might have to go barefoot at DC, but who cares!
