    If it's not too late, add me to the list for a size 10 with spikes.

    Do you want my payment now or when I get back then? I don't want to miss this if you don't do another order. I also want to get them made out of the good materials as well
    LMK and I can pay at anytime.

    Wes Payment no problem but please let me know if shipping to the UK is going to be extra and, if so, how much extra?. Once I have this figure payment will come winging its way to you

    Ditto Crusty, what's the inclusive cost with shipping to the UK?

    Also ditto Crusty on the first page, if the spikes could be removeable, that'd be great. If not, or it will affect the price, leave 'em on and I'm sure we'll figure something out.

    Cheers Wes, Great work. Looking forward to those completed prorotype pics!

    Shipping to the UK should only be a couple of dollars extra. Just add $5 for UK shipping.

    For simplicity sake, all boots will have spikes. They will not be attached, that way, if you want to put them on, that's up to you.

    Yeah, Jeez. Add $5. And for customs, I'll check "gift" and make it like a $10 toy. Is that ok for the out of the US guys? That way you don't have to pay tax or whatever.

    Value - fine. $10 - $20 should skip past customs, plus if they open them, they'll have no idea of the value, so it should be a winner.

    As for marking them "toys", that may cause problems for Europeans. There is some very dull law in Europe that says that all toys must have been tested to destruction and be safe in the process. Once they've been tested they get what is called a "CE mark". I have no idea what it stands for, but toys without this are illegal, as is the importing of them. This all sounds like a bunch of crap, but I have friends who have had prop packages marked "Toys" be inspected at customs and confiscated as the "toys" didn't have the CE mark.

    Very dull, but from Europeans point of view, it would be better to have it marked "2nd hand shoes" or "2nd hand fancy dress costume parts" or something.

    I guess marking it off as a "gift" with a $10 value would do best for international customers as well

    I think if you mark them as shoes for $10 that should avoid any European toy entanglements.

    I mean, no customs inspector in the world would open the package, look at the boots, and think that anyone in their right mind would pay more than ten bucks for what they see in front of them!

    So, for future purpose, what are these boots called? JW boots?

    Cheers!

    Yeah you're right. No-one outside of this hobby is going to believe how much we're paying for these. Especially my wife!

    Your suggestion should be fine, sorry to have to bring it up, but the European toy police are real sticklers!

    JW boots is OK, but how about "Wes' Wellies"? (J/K!)

    I'm just worried that there's a possibility that they won't be ready for Dragon*Con. I'm having my fingers crossed for that to get them in time, cause that's my main goal (as well as many others here.

    Email sent to you, Wes. Money should be on the way once I get a reply from you.

    Cheers. Looking forward to the pics with the soles on!


    Let us know when you have a timescale. I'm in no rush at the moment, but do have a couple of events coming up later in the year I'd like to have them for.

    Wes, money sent today in the mail (Money Order)...I didn't want to send PayPal cause if my wife knows, she'll die of a heart attack just for the price of these ones (even though, she doesn't know yet about how much I paid for my helmet (&#36;320)

    BTW, I know you said that the spikes are included with the boots, but not attached to them (that we have to do that ourselves).

    Now, can you describe how are these spikes are gonna be attached with? I mean, if the boots are gonna come with some bolts or screws of some kind, or the spikes are gonna be screwed in somehow...let us know.

    Re: *UPDATE 9* FETT BOOTS: Payment info!!!

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't someone tell me that Dragon Con was 7 weeks away? If so cool. I talked to the boot maker today and he said he should have no problem meeting that deadline, barring no unforseen problems, but again, no guarantees. But like I said, if need be, I'll FedEx em to see that you get them.

    The spikes will be attached by screws. For more reinforcement, should you desire it, you can always use contact cement or another type of adhesive.
