    Finally put them on my mannequin and I must say, what a difference. I love these boots! Think I might wear them to bed tonight......

    Nice boots, now get 'em dirty!
    Never seen Cheng boots in person, didn't even know you could still find them. I just saw a pair of Caboots, not that great. Now I LOVE my Jango Wes boots. Just weathered them this weekend.

    are any boots other than CA still available? I cant justify paying for CAs since they kinda suck and went up in price. I might just do my own but if Jango or Cheng are still available...

    I use acrylic washes. I get my boots a little wet, then start brushing on paint and wiping with a rag to blend. Try to let them dry between layers. For colors I used gray, burnt umber, and black.

    Cheng boots are the best! Bought mine way back when from the man himself.... They are the only original parts of my Fett costume left!

    I know they look way too clean but....dirt on my new shoes? Since birth you're told to keep your new shoes clean! Can't you just hear your mother now?

    I had the same issue with my Cheng boots. They came in on a Friday, the day before a convention in Dallas. (Man, that was eight years ago!) I had to convince myself to weather them in the hotel room that night.

    I have Jango_Wes boots now, and you know what? I STILL haven't weathered them.
