    Hi andy, i bought them second hand as Caboots but i am not sure if they are. Don't get me wrong these things are sweet and they fit lovely. I thought they might be Mark Chang but again i'm not sure. They seem to be slightly different from Caboots that i have seen in the past.

    Thats what i figured. I am really happy with them though and they fit perfectly and are so comfy. If i could get away with wearing them when not in costume, i would

    I don't think my boss would appreciate it, board meeting with the local county council, pin striped suit and spiked boots

    i would so love to be able to get away with

    thanks for the kind words though, although do you think i have over done it with the purple tint? The lighting is a bit funny on the phots and in reality its not quite so in your face

    Early I will start to search the Boba boots. I think, not, I'm sure those will be Mark Cheng (or JangoWes) Boots (I'm speaking about my future boots, hehe). Those are the best . Good find Ronin

    Cheers

    Speaking from someone who owns a pair of the best boots out there...

    Yes, those are Mark Cheng boots. Great steal! You can't find a better Boba boot in my opinion. Wish mine weren't falling appart (I've had them for 5-6 years).

    Yeah, those are definitely MC boots. You got some very nice boots there, man! Oh, and try not to pull too hard on those finger loops on the heel...they can tear...

    Re: Time for my old boots to retire

    Well HELLO Mark! Great seeing you here! Any chance we can pull you out of retirement with these bad boys and get a new run going? My Cheng boots have served me well for years but could certainly stand to be replaced with new ones. The only problem is that I refuse to upgrade to anything less than the Chengs.

    After speaking with Mark he said that he was not in a position to do another run but maybe in the future...
    I'm thinking If there was enough interest maybe he could be teased out...
    I'd be deffo on that.
