    They appear to have a great shape to them but being leather instead of canvas you'll always have that going against you. You could paint the details on (but it'd still be leather) OR you could glue the strips of fabric over it.

    Webchief is correct, but does it fit you and is it confortable for
    trooping?.

    I have a pair like that. I was going to paint them and use them for stormtrooper boots.

    I suggest plain simple grey... the one that's available near you. then wash and some spray some correct colours of weathering, that should help in getting the right colours. The CA boots aren't the right colours either, but they have a nice base, plain black and grey, and with some washes and sprays... there ya have it.

    There is also a special kind of leather paint from Tarragó which you could use.

    http://www.tarrago.com/anglfl/frproda.htm

    used it on my boots anyway.. the results are quite good. And i used Suede which sucks up alot more paint than normal leather does.

    se my thread:

    There used to be a pattern for the exact dimensions for the cloth strips to cut. Unfortunately that was a million years ago and I'm not sure where it is.
