    Arrggghhhh!!! I just bought CA boots!!! I wonder if these are good for a 1st run. Gabriel's stuff is getting better. I could of saved a bit of money if I waited...Well, here are some pics:





    They look good enough for the price. Now for any of you that own CA boots, do they work okay for width or are they a thin shoe? I have some pretty flat feet so wide is better. The Evolution shoes look a bit wider...

    Well, I decided to be the guinea pig on this one. I ordered a pair and will let everyone know the verdict when I receive them.

    Who knows how long it will be until CA restocks!

    better than his first attempt. the colors were way off and they were leather instead of fabric. I'm going to pick up a set of these as well.

    I curious to see what anyone thinks in person. The dark looks too dark to me. Depending on material im not sure it will fade well.

    But they arent bad Thats for sure.

    I thought that too at first, but when I visually compare the pics between these and the CAs... the CAs look just as dark. I am curious as the width of the black in the center. Looks wide, but that could be a trick of the camera angle.

    My two major concerns are their durability and the fact that they look wider for people like me who have flat feet!

    Only reasons for my question of longevity/durability is because CA has been making boots for some time now. I'm not sure but it seems like Gabe is scratch building each pair...

    I'm curious to see...that's a nice price for sure. Save you 60 bucks compared to CA boots. They are 140 + 15/20 for shipping.

    I ordered wookie scalps and toe spikes from Gabe and they should be here soon so I'll let you know about them. He went through alot to get me accurate ESB braids and his spikes look as good as any for 1/2 the price of most I've seen.

    Thanks Gabe!!!

    Okay so I got my CA boots from UPS 10 minutes ago and I'm a bit dissappointed. My major concern about the width isn't too bad...they're comfy enough and I have room in them. My flat feet only hang a smidge outside the arch which should be fixed when I add some arch supports soon (thanks wolfie)!

    They are big too. Well, I'm an 8.5/9 depending and I ordered an 8 and I would say I have at least the .5 to a full size room in which is great since I will be adding insert support/lifts.

    The two only concerns for me is that the dark stripe down the middle seems too narrow at the toe and the sole isn't built well to the shoe. What I mean by this is that it seems like w/enough pulling, you can rip the sole right off from the shoe. You can see a lack of glue in the heel area. I think before I weather these I'm going to use shoe glue or liquid nails in any sketchy area. Sucks to pay 155 for a pair of shoes to have to ghetto rig them.

    I can't wait to see a review on Gabe's. I'm about 75% happy with the CABoots...

    I'm waiting to see too. I feel like a penguin shoving his buddy off the iceberg to make sure there aren't any sharks in the water.

    I got a shipping notification from Gabe earlier this week. Once I get them, I'll put up a detailed thread with pics, a review, and weathering progress.

    Everything is close to or right on the money especially considering price. I love my wookie braids! The toe spikes were great too but I sold them just to buy a pair from someone else to compare the two since I'm in no rush.

    I also had a set of gloves that were close to the same quality of GBH's but a good amount cheaper that I sold to get a pair of real gloves which aren't as accurate but I just like them better.

    by this time next year I would imagine that Gabriel will have a one stop fett shop!

    In all, he's great, easy to communicate with and reasonable.
