This is my first post, as such...
Thanks to all for providing such great information, tutorials, and your own trials and tribulations. Ive been stalking posts for a long time and putting my own rotj together.
Like many I cant spend the money on quality parts... In this case, the boots.
The boba boots are essentially ankle high chelsea boots with a flat sole. Ive seen some examples of modifying soles or completely resoling a boot here so im not too concerned. many of the links here to alternative boots are old and dead, so ill post one I like.
Men's Chelsea Boot from Lands' End Canvas
lands end chelseas. There are plenty of better ones but on average this style of boot seems expensive. These are under forty.
