    Eh, they're ok... if you are in to that whole "so good George Lucas would hit you with an C&D" type thing....

    Great job as usual, Seeker.

    They look great seeker. I'm still working on mine, I'm having trouble making that bend in metal. Is your armor held on by just the snaps?

    Looks awesome. I think you should paint that hash mark on the back of the boots blue though. I used the ocean blue color to paint mine and it came out awesome.

    Yep just snaps in the side for now. I notice with this new armor I dont need to have it velcroed anywhere else. it sits very well on the boot.

    Ohh I took my boots to my local shoe service person and he said whom ever made these boots did a fantastic job on them. He's been doing shoe service for 25 years. I was really happy to hear that from him.

    He also said that the sole is a very good quality.

    Whew the originals are near on impossible ti find bro, and the reinone's were a limited run. the folks that got them pretty much hold on to them. boots are always one of the hardest parts to get and have accurate.

    Re: My finished Reinone boots.

    Well, I guess when I need the boots, it will be impossible for me to find a pair, not just because of when I'll need them, but because I highly doubt they will have a size 17 boot.

    Re: My finished Reinone boots.

    I like that one, "tubashaq85x"

    Its what Im wearing right now. The only place for me to find shoes that fit are on the discount racks at the Vans shoe store. I havent bought a pair of shoes that came in a box for about 4 years now. Im also afraid that I havent stopped growing yet. Just turned 18, and Im 6'7 with size 17 foot. Not even the big and tall store near me has shoes that fit, and I have no idea how im gonna get the proper Jango boot look at this rate. lmoa any place I can get them custom made? I should probly ask shaq, I mean he lives like 20 minutes from me....
