    I was hoping for an improved protype today but the guys have come to some delays and will need another week. They said it will be done on tuesday 8-19. So hopefully, the run will start soon.

    I am guessing that the GM versions will be in white. Can you confirm that for me?

    Any update on the boots Reinone. Thought you were having better luck on this run compared to the last run.

    Ok, its been a couple weeks since I was supposed get the boots. They were backed up on their normal boots so they didn't get around to making them when they said they would.

    So I talked to them again today and they said that they will have it ready for me this week. I will post pics update the list as soon as I can.

    This prototype stage is the worst part of the deal. The bootmakers take their time and sometimes put you off for weeks. But once the run starts its all good. They make their deadlines because they if they don't they lose money.

    Thanks

    I would like an order for a Galactic Marine if possible? Size 10.5 if possible 11 if I have to round to the nearest whole number.

    I await with great anticipation.

    Here's the new prototype. Looking better already. I still need a couple of more tweaks but I think its about done. These minor details will be done when the run starts. This boot is using the correct fabric. Just imagine these in white for the trooper boots.

    Looks more like a problem w/ muscular calves... I have a pair of reinone Jango boots from the first run - which had the same 'problem'... the opening on top is just really on the snug side... I mean, it's fine on my skinny-legs-fancy-boy-mannequin...

    BUT, for those out there who want to wear these boots - I would ask reinone to strongly consider, making that shaft/opening just a little wider/bigger... especially since it cinches on top any way, to accommodate all those chicken-legged guys out there... Good call on eliminating the the spongy padding under the leather trim on the top BTW...

    Overall - just like the first run... these look absolutely beautiful again! I'm still in for a size 9 [currently, I've got a pair of size 11s on my 5'8" mannequin... and he just looks too much like one of those manga-characters w/ the big, square feet/shoes]. Great work, reinone - keep 'em coming!

    Wow, they look beautiful! But I have to agree, it looks like they could stand to be a little wider at the top.

    very nice.

    So what type of material is the cloth part?
  16. Sep 11, 2008, 4:09 PM - Re: New V2 Jango fett boots sign up thread. #66

    The boots are nice, hope the run starts soon. As others have said the top could do with being widened.

    Hope we hear more news soon Reinone. Would be great to have before Christmas.

    Well I picked that fabric up several months ago and I can't remeber the name. It is waterproof and is used for trenchcoats, armyboots, and even tarps. Just with the fabric alone, these boot will be way better than the first boots.

    The boots in the pic are worn by my cousin, and he has large calves. They look tight on him but he says they are quit comfortable. I made them 1" wider at the top than the first boots and excluded the batting so they are a lot better than the old ones. I have small calves so I don't know how they how tight they can be, but like I said he has large calves and they fit him fine. I can go with another 1" at the top but its up to you guys.

    I am hoping to order the boots soon. So be prepared in this coming week to make the payment.
    Thanks

    Im leaving for Europe on Saturday. I do want these and will pay a soon as I get back. I'll be gone through the end of september.

    Reinone - Boots seem fine then. Sooner the better, would be fantastic for everybody. This being one of the most important items for any Jango Fett.
    Can't wait for the next prototype.

    Jango 5204 - How long you goin to europe for? Where in Europe you going to? Have a nice time! Thought you yanks had plenty to see in your country alone.

    ****, those are gorgeous. Like everyone else though, I'd say widen the tops a little bit. I play soccer, and my calves are quite big. They fit in standard boots normally, but...my ankle is about 14", and widens to about 19" around the muscle. Not asking for customized boots, just that the opening is wide enough for a bigger guy's calves. As it can be cinched down =)

    One thing to consider. is that the boots should not go up to you calves.
