    I bought the same pair for my son's costume. What kind of paint did you use - acrylic, enamel spay, vinyl house paint?

    Yeah, I have been tempted to take the little patches off the sides (already took the ones off the elastic) but I am afraid they will fall apart if I do 8-o
    Anyway, looking good - I will get mine done this weekend, thanks for the inspiration!

    i'm not sure if they have them for little kids. as far as the brand name they are faded glory. i took the little leathery patches off with a stitch remover. took about 5 minutes per boot, but there is an adhesive under it that im trying to figure out how to get off the best way. thanks for the compliments guys!!

    The smallest size I saw on these was an 8. My son wears a 7. I did look for kids sized versions too and did not see any.

    just to let everyone know (if your interested) that the white substance on the left boot is a form of glue that was under a piece of pleather that i removed. i am working on finding the best method for removal. thanks for the comps guys.
