    Nov 12, 2007, 5:38 PM - Source for Boots -- Kohl's #1

    Hey guys, I work at Kohl's part time as an adset associate and also as cashier. The other night at work I was sent to shoes to help them sort and organize for a bit, and when I was adjusting the men's boots area, I spotted something miraculous -- A sign from the heavens that I should begin my Fett costume, as I had been thinking of for some time:








    Price is $80 normally, on sale 50% off for $39.99, and with my employee discounts mine are going to be about $30 (discounts appear on my Kohl's charge card). However, I know that we currently have a scratch-off dot sale, so if you have a Kohl's card too, you can get 15-30% more off them!

    Good luck, and happy hunting!

    Honestly, I have no idea... I can't remember seeing any. Granted, our Kohl's is a "small market" Kohl's, and therefore we don't carry -everything-. I know Axcess is kinda like a men's dress line, so probably just for men's...

    Heck, I was surprised they had a pair of 13 mediums for my honking feet! I immediately put those puppies on reserve until today

    Not entirely sure. Any suggestions? Maybe make a "filler" piece to fill in the triangle-ish area between the toes and ankle... Or do this:

    But then again, I dunno... they're kinda nice boots, and the support is *really* nice from how much I've worn them so far -- not too much yet, but still... Bah! You are the killer of dreams, Saint! J/k...

    And by "do this:" I meant cut the sole off and use a flip-flop sole, as that poster did... But like I said, they're *really* nice boots. Kinda am skiddish about modding them, but... if it needs to be done for Fett...

    Actually, I just found them on the Kohl's website.
    http://www.kohls.com/kohlsStore/shoe...rnett+Boot.jsp

    Not sure if they ship to Canada though... Doesn't appear to.

    I picked up a pair on black Friday, they look good I don't think that I'll be converting them to Fett though not unless I get totally desperate. They will be a great help in makeing patterns when I make my own boots.

    Be warnned they run a bit on the small size I had to get a 10.5 and they are still a bit snug. May have to get some shoe trees to stretch them a bit.

    Kohls were pretty wiped out, I think I go the last pair of 10.5.

    Thank you for the tip.

    Alan
