    Home made boots option

    I used canvas to re do my old home made boots. First. I added foam to the front of the boot to square them off, then later to the sole. I folded over edges of three pieces of canvas and sewed on black piping. I fabric glued six total segments to each boot. I then glued in 6 inch high black elastic. A leather shop added the heavy stitching. They still need toe spikes.

    Thanks gents. Like all my parts, a WIP. I need to color the soles somehow. Paint or a thin layer if rubber glued on.

    They look great! I'm starting on a full ROTJ costume and after seeing your work, I'm now seriously considering making the boots myself.

    Finally finished the boots. wrapped the sides of the soles with white vinyl. Did the toe spikes on a lathe. Won't do it again.
