    LusjoOrdo, thanks for the info on a possible seller, but I'm not real keen on the thread hijack.

    I apologize about that. It was not my intentions. Again apologies.

    Re: Boots

    Hey, Gee2. It's been a couple weeks, and I was wondering if there'd been any updates from your POC. (I know, you'd tell us if there were, but I thought I'd ask. )

    Re: Boots

    I love the top part of the boot but since much of it can't be seen in costume for Jango, it's all about having the right sole. It would be nice if they could get that closer...it's all in the arch.

    Better than a pair of Star Fortress...but nowhere near the real deal.
    An accurate sole is key!

    Re: Boots

    It's not all bad, but would like to see a closer to accurate sole. That's really the only way those things are going to sell like crazy.

    Re: Boots

    I have to agree with the rest of the guys. "It's the sole"

    Re: Boots

    I, too. The sole has to be right. The rest almost doesn't matter.

    Who makes these boots? Does anyone have a boot from Star Fortress to compare? I know all the stories about them, just want to see a pic that's all. There site shows a grainy pic that is hard to compare.

    Re: Boots

    If they could even some how get the soles that were produced for the Journeys GBX boots, that would be a closer type of sole than this one.

    It's completely missing the high-cut arch.





    The toe should also be more square shaped at the tip.

    Re: Boots

    Here's some pics of my GBX boots, which are closer than the current prototypes in my opinion.




    Perhaps the proper tread is still out there, or at least a closer one like the GBX tread.

    Come to think of it... that tread that they have on the prototype would work better for a Zam boot. It seems rather close to a Prada.

    Re: Boots

    [FONT=Verdana]As I expected itís unanimous that the sole is the deal breaker. I will be visiting the boot shop Friday if they are open (Monday if not) and will take my pair of Bed Stu's with for a up close and personal with the maker. I canít guarantee anything but I will make the case as best possible that without the correct sole itís a no go.[/FONT]

    Re: Boots

    To me, the top part of the boot looks "pretty close"... which is close enough for me.

    It's definitely the sole. If the correct or close to correct sole can be found, then I'd be in for at least one, or perhaps two pairs.

    Re: Boots

    Ok, I've gone back and forth with the POC. I explained the issue with th esole and its importance, and they are very cognizant of our needs and are very willing to work with us. The tan sole on the prototype is as close as they can get, for the tan boots. However, there are some other options for the black soled boots, and it may be possible to place the other sole options on the tan boots as well.
    The owner, the lassiter (sp?) and the POC are all set up for a meeting with me next Friday where we will discuss what "has to be" and "what we can live with". As I said I will be taking my pair to give them a hands on, along with all the gathered reference we have for the boots and will hopefully get this sorted so that folks can rely on them for an accurate boot replica.

    Re: Boots

    Thanks for being a bulldog on this, Gee2. I think the trapezoidal detail on the arch is non-negotiable on the black or tan versions. The Galactic Marine/Kashyyyk Trooper boots both have the tan/wheat sole, and their toecap (look at mrbungle's thread in the Clonetrooper section) is designed to interact with the edge of the sole -- including that upward projection.

    Re: Boots

    Great work. If you needed various sole sizes I'm sure you could find people here that would be willing to send you the shoe to make a copy of the mid- sole detail. I have a size 13 Kenneth cole. The main sole is worn, but the mid-detail is intact.

    Thank you so much for sticking on this, Gee2.

    Re: Boots

    Personally, I'd prefer only the exact sole with the squared toe.
