    Nov 12, 2010, 1:27 AM - Acceptable Jango shoes? #1

    Hi all,

    I was wondering what others thought about these shoes for Jango:

    Mens - Dexter - Plymouth Plain Toe Waterproof Boot - Payless Shoes

    They are not accurate, but I hoping they could do until the Holy Grail comes along. I bought a pair and to me they're not bad. But before I painted the silver on the bottom, I wanted to hear opinions/suggestions.

    I also came across these on the net, but haven't bought them as of yet:

    Walmart.com: Herman Survivors - Men's Contractor Work Boots, Wide Width: Shoes

    It looks like either one would work, once painted up and armor attached. For the price they are both a good find.
    I would have to favor the Walmart pair for the sole is taller and gives more space to paint in the silver trim.

    I agree, the Walmart ones don't look too bad until real ones come up.

    No one but other Jango enthusists will notice anyways

    Hi all,

    I went with the Target boots instead of those above. I think they're all fairly ok for the job for now. For any interested, I have another pair of boots with the right sole but too small (size 7 women)!
