    Full Rubber Boba Boots?!?

    I've been doing a little research on Boba Fett's boots when I came across this curiosity:

    http://www.villageshoes.com/prroli1.html

    BTW, it seems that the Fett boot is a just a flat soled Chelsea in canvas. Since Chelsea's are typically heeled. I'm sure it's posted here somewhere already though...right?

    Supposedly Boba's boots are a found item and were "Miners" boots from the U.K. that's probably were the designer of those boots got the idea. Who knows, but they do look very close I agree.

    they look like they have detail lines on them that would border the color change on a regular fett boot. Look to be a similar design overall, but different materials. cool find.

    Seeing the closeup and detail, they look great as a comparison to the real deal! But the only problem is that they are not the same material, but there's always paint

    I thought it was pretty close. Anyway ProKeds makes canvas shoes so those are probably rubber over canvas.

    If you look carefully, it appears that these are rubber 'covered'. I would bet money that these are material boots overlayed with rubber.

    You could always cover the existing shoe with canvas strips cut to size.

    size 11 here, most of the sites people reccomend for the boots only sell shoes that come in small sizes. I'd probably buy them if they came in my size. but i,m still working on my converse all star boots right now and they're not looking too good
