    I was just on the CA Boots website and saw that they are pre-ordering for their new Boba boots. Thought I'd pass the info along.

    The screen used boots had canvas tops. It's a small detail but noticable if your concerned about a nice and accurate suit.

    I don't know if they intentionally changed the boots to steer clear of LF or what, but they could have had some deceint boots if they were canvas with a 3 layer white foam sole, too bad.

    Sure they could use a little weathering, and a painted sole, but hey we had nothing before. And uh.... that's me on their webpage

    Their website actually says that the final boots will have a white sole. That's good news.

    they're a bit too shiny, If you could dull the finih on them a bit, they would be great

    If they are made of the same leather as the stormtrooper boots, you can just go at them with some steel wool to dull the finnish. It worked on my boots.

    These look pretty good I bet when they are dulled down and weathered....$100 for leather, sounds pretty good to me.

    That's true, they are cheaper. But mine are screen accurate.
    Don't get me wrong, I'm not knocking his boots. I, like many others, don't think leather is the way to go.

    I'll probably get a pair of these one day since $100 US is a good price. Screen accuracy like the beauties Jango_Wes is selling is an awesome thing - I'll be saving my pennies for that one day.

    I'm actually glad CA boots is making these. It takes a lot of pressure off me to get the runs done. The way it's sounding, I probably won't need to do a third run.

    Hey guys. I know many of you are excited about the new CA boots. Well I am and I am not. The price is right but the accuracy is severly lacking. However, it is our great fortune that CA boots appears to be receptive to input! I am currently putting together all my MoM and AoSW pics, many of which have not been published to send to CA boots in hopes that they will make a few changes. I would strongly encourage each and every one of you to write them and ask that they switch to a cloth based boot. If enough of us demand them, I believe they will make the changes we ask. I also hope they will alter the sole and overal shape of the boot. The contact I have is "Joey". His email address is: attitudeboots@hotmail.com PLEASE write him and tell him you like the boots but would REALLY like them if changes were made! These guys just want to sell boots. Lets let them know what it will take for us to buy them! Together, as a community, we can make this happen!

    Mods, if possible, I would appreciate you posting this so everyone can see it and will write CAboots. Thanks.

    Wow, those do look promising. I just sent them an email requesting the changes to be made. This would be great if they can, thats a nice price as well.
