Boots

    Boots

    Searching information about the Jango Fett costume I am starting, I was looking for the boots.

    I may have found some here http://www.shoemall.com/product/Kenn...eyCode=SMJQ993

    Are these ok?

    Thanks
    John

    Re: Boots

    In all honesty, those aren't too accurate. The cheap alternate are the JBX2 boots that are sold at Journeys.

    I got myself a pair and they are pretty decent as far as accuracy goes.

    Re: Boots

    Lower buckle needs to be removed. Other than that, not any real mods.

    Re: Boots

    I'd suggest taking some black shoe polish to the stitching as it's a dark grey. Aside from that and the lower buckle, you'll be good to go.

    Re: Boots

    After all modifications are completed, like the removal of the lower buckle, the addition of rub-n-buff to the edges of the soles and boot armor... this is what you'll get.

    Re: Boots

    I got my boots in last week, the Journey's.
    Modification will start as soon as the boot armour is ready.

    What exactly is rub-n-buff that is needed for the boots?

    Re: Boots

    The rub-n-buff is for the edges of the soles, the two silver areas on either side of the arch in the above photo. You'll have to mask off with painters tape then simply apply the rub-n-buff. Pretty easy really.

    Have you got close us of the finished boot Ian?

    Laar0406 - am shocked and disapointed they don't ship them boots outside US. I'm in the UK, bit stuffed too in getting those boots.

    How did you attach the straps? To the boot. To the armor?

    Indeed.
    I got then through a friend who lives in Alaska. Took four weeks and some extra import costs, but seemed like the only way to get them.

    The straps are attached to the armor with rivets ( I'll be adding some velcro to keep the armor from riding up my ankle ), and the srtaps are attached to the boots with snaps.

    You'll have to make holes through the sides of the heels to mount the snaps. Make sure that you get the long shaft variety.

    WTG Ian, :thumbup

    I have the same exact boots and now that I've seen the way to do it, I'm not afraid to mark them up now!

    We might be out of luck. And by "we", I of course mean "me". Looking at the website, it appears that Journeys no longer sells the JBX2. Bummer.
