    Boot alternative

    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.

    Thanks all

    I had something similar... I used a piece of foam and GOOP glue to fill in the heel area and smoothed it over. You could scratchbuild a decent pair of boots out of these.

    Hah, I was actually thinking of that thread when I was referencing the sole.

    No I havent pulled the trigger on the purchase yet, so I can't vouch... I just thought they were decent for the price... A lot of the chelsea style boots are expensive and wouldnt be worth the extra work compared with a finished boot. I'm glad I could help someone! And yes those are current.
