Hey guys,im haveing a time findeing boots for my Jango,does any one have a link or could point me in the direction of a good set.
what size do you wear?
I am in the same boat as Roddie. I need Jango boots as well. Size 10. Thanks!
Yeah I have been hunting for months now as well.
OK, I will let you all in on a little secret. Jango Boots are nothing more than Black Hightops shoes at Disney. The Shoe armor covers that fact. I have a pair of boots I got from either Wal-Mart or Payless. It is a set of low cut boots that match Jango almost perfectly. The name brand I have for boots is Fadded Glory. That did come from Wal-Mart. I am a size 11 by the way.
Jango boots (accurate soled ones at least) are HARD-AS-HECK to find... but be patient and you CAN find them... I found mine on fleabay and got them for a steal at < $30... They are Bedford Stus and are a size 8, even though I wear a 9, so when looking take into consideration that they are made a little larger so you can look for a slightly smaller size even.
I'm with TLobe00 on this... I've been searching for a truly accurate pair for over three years now. I've got a pair of the now discontinued GBXs, which are close, but I'm still scouring for a nice pair of size 8 Bed Stus, Kenneth Coles or Pradas.
Finding the proper boots is the "Grail quest" of all Jango costumers.
Yup, I too, am looking for a size 11-12 and still nothing and it's well been over a year. I guess that thread where someone was asking for sole samples never took off
some one should do a run of them and make them for ever one
I may have inherited a pair that is too big for me. I'll check when I get home tonight. Maybe I'll stop at Walmart too.
let a brotha know if you wanna part with them.
Ok, here's the deal. I bought a Jango costume from someone in my garrison and the flightsuit and boots are way too big for me. In regards to this thread, I have a pair of Kenneth Cole Reaction boots, size 11, color BROWN. They are painted black but the paint is chipping off as they have been trooped in off and on for a few years. I'll put them up on the Cargo Hold.
Crow62 here, Jango72, I don`t think a Grail quest anymore, at least not to me, right now I am producing the live style clone boots and the animated style clone boots, so you know my skills and I can do Jango boots for the brotherhood, I will make the boots here in Ecuador, the first stage is to make the cast of the Kenneth Cole or Bed Stu boots, for this Marcelo Gallo TK1389 will take the cast of the boots in California and then he will send me the molds to start the production, Marcelo found one KC pair to start, but I will need for few days the other number sizes, after Marcelo will take the cast, will resend to you your boots, so, If someone have accurated movie KC os Bed Stu shoes, send me a PM, this is my offer:
IF YOU SEND ME FOR FEW DAYS TO CALIFORNIA YOUR PAIR OF BOOTS TO TAKE THE CAST, I WILL MAKE FOR YOU A PAIR FOR FREE OR YOU CAN TAKE ONE PAIR OF MY OTHER MODELS (CLONE BOOTS: ANIMATED OR LIVE STYLE) I will post your name in the Cargo thread post too. The sole boots have to be like this reference picture and in good shape as possible:
The offer is on the table, you take it or leave it? sounds good to me, don`t you?, so, lets move this thread!!

I really hope this works out.............I would love to have some accurate boots. I have seen your clone boots thread over on CTN and they look pretty good. Heres to hoping this turns out as well.
I'd be interested in a size 11 as well
interested pending price. 9.5, 10
I think he is making a list of boot sole sizes that have been offered for molding.
Crow62 does it again.
I've got a pair of his original Real Life Clone boots and I couldn't be happier.
Comfortable and hard wearing. You could kick clankers in the bolts all day with these beauties. Giovanni is a stand up guy.
Awesome to see you helping out the Star Wars costuming community once again mate.
Thanks your feedback Trooperdyl, it is good to hear that, post 15 with the volunteers is updated, we need other numbers to make the soles cast, run the voice, and remember: I am not making boots yet this is the initial stage: the soles cast taking, we need more sizes, an only taking cast session is the ideal timing.

You can also take a look at amazon.com and search a Harley Davidson Pallas boot. Or, if money is not too much of an objetc, search Altberg Bootmakers (in the UK) and take a look at the SNEAKER AQUA police boot. Good luck to ya!
OK, I sent PM`s to Fettfanatic, EAGC and Thrax with the Marcello`s address, they can send the boots, Marcelo is ready to host your boots for a few hours.
We will start making the cast of sizes 9.5US(43EU), 10US(44EU) and 11US(45EU).
More sizes would be wonder but there are not more volunteers by the moment.
Thanks ner vod's

the 9.5 is all I am needing, so we are good.
This is so great...I am glad some one has stepped up to tackle this...Glad you got a size 10 in there. Looking forward to making a purchase...but also can't wait to see the progress as you guys work on this.
I talked via messenger with EAGC, he putted his boots in a box, will go to the postmail tomorrow, he has the 10US, we still needing more sizes, stay tuned everybody.
I hope someone has a size 12 to volunteer to be cast....crossing fingers.
Thanks so much Thrax, Fettfanatic sent today the boots to Marcelo we hope will be on CA on Friday, I will ask Marcello take some pics to show the progress. Again, stay tuned.
This is great...I hope someone puts up a size 8.5 or 9 as 9.5 is a bit too big for my lil tootsies : )
Crow, put me down for a 9.5, or a 10... depending on how the sizes run. Can't wait.
Good work Giovanni, I sold a pair of boots to a guy here in Australia not sure what size but I'll point him to this thread hopfuly he can help out.
Hi Jaster, nice to see you over here, thanks by your help, I´ll be waiting for the size if avalaible to cast.
Hello guys, I am from Czech Republic and I am trying make Jango Fett's costume. I just want ask, if some of those boots can be used for creating Jango Fetts boots, thanks:
bigger image - http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5300/...982ae88f_o.jpg
here an update about the boots, Marcello received two pairs of boots, he is making right now the casts, he promised me a lot of picks in the process.
Crow62, PM sent.
Crow, I have some troops coming up, but I might be able to help with a size 8 shoe (as that is what I have) after the trooping is done... I'll keep you updated
P.S. I wear a size 9 and these do fit pretty comfortably, so I am sure anyone in a 8.5-9 range could wear these

I really hope this take off. I'm still hunting for the boots
Yeah, I got rid of my Bed-Stus a few years ago and wish I hadn't. I'll be watching this thread for updates, as I'm very interested.
Squirk you will be able to get a second gen off your boots. You sold them to me and I sent them to have their soles molded.
That's awesome. Simply awesome. Seems like you never say "goodbye" to props in this social circle. It's more like, "See you later".
Thanks for letting me know.
OK, this weekend was the weekend the last w/e that I will troop fpr a while. My concern before I send out my 9.5 BED STU's is that they are a bit worn. Crow. Do you want some detailed pics before I send them to see if they are still usable?
Thanks Thrax, PM me some pics to confirm the worn, if it is not so much, I think we will can fix that in the mold.
no way to get a size 14 in the mix is there?
SmuWindu, a brother on bikscout offer a 13UK to cast, his boots are on United Kingdom, we are looking the way to cast locally on UK that number, if you are 14US may be your dream is coming true.
I found out I know someone near Boston with US14 KC PC's. I'm not sure he'll be up to letting them out of his sight but I'll ask.
Crow its good to hear these are getting done...even better that's it's marcello and I happen to be the new guy with g2 so I'll have a direct hand with the casting of these and also since I will be picking up a pair from you crow (10.5) I'll make sure that we get them done quick I got a set of clone boots comin from ya and and I couldn't be more excited about em!!
Yeah the dudes are great I guess I'm like marcellos apprentice and we got a ton of new stuff comin but it is nice to be able to contribute to our community.
I have a pair of 14's, would that be of any use at all? I mean, I know someone who is a 13 would be able to fit in them, but I don't want to help if I'm not really helping lol. I do hope more people jump in on this, it seems the average guys foot is between 10 and 13.
About the CA casts, here a pic of one local forum member:
Today arrives the silicone to start the cast in CA, don,t you Tuskenfett?
Last edited by crow62; 02-22-2011 at 06:42 PM.
So have you scored a size 12 to mold yet? if so I'd be in for one of those for sure!
I could recognize those boots anywhere.
i am interested in a size 12
10.5 or 11 for me!
Somebody have KC little numbers to cast?
I have really little....euro 39....which is like 7 us mens....prob smaller
I'm pretty sure that's too small.....just thought I'd throw it out there.
Crow62... Thanks for the heads up!!! I may be buying two pairs from you, when they are ready...
12.5 US or (12 UK) for me! PM sent!
I had my grubby little fingers all over your boots and they are still ok me and Marcelo went over he casting process but the silicone isn't there yet we are picking It up wed I believe then casting them and sendin them out
Tuskenfett thanks the update, remember take pics on the process.
Interested in size 11 when the boot become available.
keep up the good work Crow62, thanks
Tuskenfett you take care of my babies. If something happens to them I'll be hunting you down. Ha Ha. Just kidding.
Good News for 13US users, Heatshock from bikersscoutnet will be sending his boots to California to take the casts.
So an update Numbers:
P.S.: TK337 is going to send me pics of the 7us KC to see if are the accurated soles (39EU,6,5UK)
Well I will certainly be in for a 9.5 or a 10 depending on the fit.
Thanks for doing this
I am still going to cooperatewith my BED STU's 9.5's but am working with Crow on some details. My boots have a little wear to them so I was wondering if they were viable. We are working that out now.
I must to wait the other bros opinions, I am looking for this:
Confirmed, we have now a 7UK too, thanks TK337 from TDH 7UK,9US,10US,13US for now We still needing 8,11 and 12 US sizes
Hi Giovanni, any news on the casting process?
Women's Converse = US8, UK6, EUR39
Men's Vans = US10, UK9, EUR43
Last edited by Devilstar2k2; 03-11-2011 at 03:47 PM.
They are euro 39.
Sorry, I just read the post where he called it a UK7... In any case, we checked some more of my wifes shoes and it looks like the ratio for the size conversion is all over the place depending on the brand. I went back and edited my previous post to just show brands and size.

Sorry, i am still using my boots for local trooping. I am hoping for a break to send my 9.5 BED STU's. DC
Thrax, easy, Marcelo taked 4 casts this week, if we can find the another numbers we will make another set of casts.
I will talk with Marcelo on wekend about the boots devolution to the volunteers, thanks again brothers!!
If you want an accurated shoe size conversion, use this, works perfect to me, 0 complaints on my dispatched shoes:
International Shoe Size Conversion Charts/Converter Tables for Shoes Sizes
Hey guys I don't want to step on toes cause I don't know who they belong to but we got a brown pair with "close" soles but not accurate with the blue stripe in the heel and ribs on the arch now if the goal of this project is "close enough" then we'll cast them but if it's for accurate then I would say it's not worth casting them. So whoever you are shoot crow or me a pm so we can decide what to do thanks!
Hello this is Marcelo
after over 18 full moons Im finally back on this board and with my first post.
II have the casting mostly done, there is one part that I'm having a problem casting, and I'm talking with Crow62 about it, once I get his input on the little snag, we can go forward but I need his input on it.
Thank you all for being patient (the ones that have provided the boots so far) and for the ones anxiously waiting for a final part
BTW for the ones that have provided the boots, THANK YOU and rest assure that they are in safe hands, I only dropped one pair in water last week, but I think it will be fine...
On another note, will be posting up pictures here, I misplaced my camera card I just hope I did not throw it away as most of the pictures were there, have a squad meeting tomorrow and will clean up the shop to look for the card K...
On a lighter note, the bit on the boots in water was a joke LMAO...
Thank you all
Hey Just got a reply From Crow62 on another board
I will be shipping back your boots Monday If I can, Tuesday at the latest, Thanks for your help on the project... In other words there is no problem Crow can't solve lol...
Here is a picture of the boots in line, the inside was casted with stone and DID not touch the leather OK so thanks again!!!
BTW don't mind that shoulder bell on the table, I had to make that out of stone and had some left over from your boots
I have a pair of 39.5 european I can ship out.
I had to remove the insole and stretch them a little to fit my 9.5 US feet.
Those boot are pretty cool... Let me know when you get the 13/14US ready...
just what I'm looking for, PM sent.
Jeeze, how many varient shoes use this sole???
BTW, Got my size 16s in the other day :P
Thanks to Marcelo by the pics, the plastic bags with silicone in front boots was a try to cast the inside boots, the bag was for not make interior boots damages, we are not happy with the interior casts, so, the exterior cast soles will be the only usable for molds.
P.S.: mhlayne is offering his 11.5us boots as volunteer, we are more close to fill the sizes.
I think our best bet (if they are willing) is to cast all the soles then send the most accurate pair along with the molds to Giovanni so he can use them to get everyones the same and best quality.
My last troop for this season will be April 9th. Then they'll be on the way.
No update on sending back the originals?
They were supposed to be returned a few weeks back....
I have a pair of 14s or 15s but the heel is a little worn. It could be built up with RTV or clay for molding. Let me know if you could use them!
