    Oct 28, 2003, 5:01 PM - Rogue Studios Custom made Fett boots #1

    I have had many request to post the boots I had made for my Fett suit so here they are. It took me 8 months to have them made and considering the guy made them with only photos and no input from me was amazing he did a bang up job. Take care and sorry for poor quality I was in a hurry. The spike were produced by DeanO and I had to mod them up and build the toe area myself.

    Now, those are the most amazing custom-made boots I've seen to date!!! Even with a high-class costruction rather than the ones I have (scratch-built pair)

    Good to go, RS!

    I'm actually curious about the spikes, which looks just like the actual ones on the Fett costume (with little holes in the tips). I also like what TK-Fett said about the flat-looking...impressed.

    Now a question for RS: are they made with that reason, just to look like that or is because you actually have wide-feet?

    I had them made in the impression of the Jedi boots which are wide by comparison. If you use the prepro boots or the AOSW they are narrower. What makes them look a little too wide to me is he made the center striping too 1/8" too wide.
    Here's a clearer pic before weathering.

    The ESB boots look to be about this width as well. Certainly would look good on my display!! Very nice man...

    I dont think they look to wide at all and with your foot filling up the inside no one should be able to tell. Is that a Millenium Falcon in the back of the last pic?

    Yeah I had to set the Falcon project aside for Fett builds I hope to get back on it in a few months.

    I am really impressed. I like the detail of the more square look to the front of the boot. Your maker did a great job. The boots are always essential to a great looking fett costume.

    Since no one else has asked yet, I will.

    1) How much?
    2) Is the maker planning on making any more pairs?

    I'm with BF...If the price is right, I would rather pay a little extra for some nice crafted ones than waste time on creating my own. I looked at a few shoes at Wally world today, but nothing looked right to try and mod out.

    Yes he is willing to make more but I had these built around what I suspect the original boot was. He is a high end bootmaker and is pretty well known in his profession. He will not turn out a downgraded product which I did ask to reduce the price for everyone but he says it's a reflection of his standards and really saw no way to compromise.

    The inside of the boot is all soft leather and the piping is leather as well. The outside it is the same material as the jumpsuit (I have never been convinced of the canvas theroy). The sole was also done in 3 sections just like the original

    Anyway I'll state the price but don't forget I'm a spare no expense guy when it means accuracy and quality. Make sure you are sitting down and if price is not a concern then this is the boot.

    $700 a pair.(I have $900 in mine just due to R+D and having to develop my own measurements sole thickness etc).

    If you haven't stroked out please contact me to make arrangments if you are interested. A few board members saw these at Dragon con if they want to speak up please do. Also they can verify that the price of the boot is exactly what you pay the maker I do not make one cent.(just in case you wondered .

    Has the maker considered how many pairs of these he could actually sell for a remotely reasonable price?? It could be the difference between selling 5 pairs to a couple of hundred! Every person on this board would have our current boots on ebay. Well thats a shame because I'm sure most of us wouldn't let ourselves spend that kinda money on shoes... Oh well, back to the drawing board...

    The thing is he has a mainstay business making stuff for the industry and these are like a side table item so he has more work than he can handle. It's not really an issue of money and how much he can make per se'

    Well, when I look at my MCs and then at the price of these... I'm VERY SATISFIED with the MCs! As they say in my line of business: "Close enough for Government work!"
