    I was wondering if i could get some feedback about the Pros and Cons of each boot. It seems the color of the Chengs is about right vs the Caboots. But then the shape in the Chengs especially in the toe area seems off compared to the Caboots. Thanks

    I don't have CA's nor seen them in person. I do have MCs and think they are great! I think the fabric they are made from is closer to the real deal. Someone who owns some can correct me, but from the pictures material of the CAs looks...for a lack of better descriptors "spongy"... I don't think the shape of the toes is off at all on the MCs. And the MCs come with the toe spikes...though now that the found part for the spikes has been identified that could be a moot point if you are going for the more authentic spikes.

    Never Ending Fett you don't by chance have a link for the found part do you? I looked it up in the search but did not find. Maybe it's just operator error.

    I dunno what's up with Wiki... changed loads since I last went there!
    But the toe spikes are from the found part from the Mitchell's Engineering turntable sweep arm...

    I'm no boba expert. But ain't the Mark Cheng boots more accurate in relation to the films, in particular the black part on the boots compared to CA boots.

    Mark Cheng boots are very rare to get and very expensive for that reason.
    CA boots are the best alternative and cheaper also.
