    Well here my status so far:

    Went to several high-end boutiques locally (so. Florida) and spoke with some sales people who all reffered mt to two show warehouses. Neither had the old reaction styles or Bed-Stu's. One did have a style in a womens shoe that was practically a dead ringer for jangos sole. The problem? only 8.5 WOMENS size! Imagine a 6' 200 lb guy trying to shove his gigantic size 12's in that. All is not lost though, I was able to find a style of Buffalinos that have very similar soles. The only trouble is the upper. Totally diffrent, but still the sole is visually more accurate, and the focal point since most of the jango spats cover the uppers.

    What do you guys think?

    I'll take the baby blue ones"" Seriously though, since the top of the boot is covered w/ armor those look pretty good.

    Mirax, i had an idea, which wouldnt work for me, but might with you...I was gonna take the No Boundries, Slippery Seattle sandals, they are a womens sandal, and rip the sole off, and then take a square toe boot, and rip its sole off, and glue the square top, and glue it to the No boundries sole. Now the soles are THE JANGO SOLE! It might work..

    Hmm, maybe I will check and see if my Walmart has them. Thanks for the idea! I haven't seen them. They have the Jango sole?

    Wow...Very nice...

    I just got some Bed stu modules and they are great except for one thing...I wear a size 11.5 and these are closer to a 10.5!

    But Im going to get a shoe stretcher and strech these babies out...

    A board member sold them to me. Im still debating on what to do about the size. Like I said above, they are tight, but I can wear them. Im just worried about how my feet will look after walking around in them for a few hours.

    Im also thinking about casting the soles in hydrocal so that I can send a copy to someone who was trying to get these manufactured.

    Dude, I'd think about wearing shoes the wrong size. Many years ago, I wore some cool shoes for a costume. Too small, but they looked great with the outfit. After wearing them for several hours, I developed ingrown toenails on both big toes. Several months of treating them to no avail, I ended up having to have the extra growth cut out.

    Since then, I'm very aware of my exact size!

    Here's the shoe Brasstony is referring to:


    Close, but not quite the same sole. Might do in a pinch.

    Those prop palace repros dont have the correct sole. In fact the sole appears to be too flat. The rest of the boot looks very good though, although since 90% of the boot is covered you can probably get away with those vietnam Jungle boots. At least the sole looks better.

    The Prop Palace leather items are not all that great, I ordered belts from them before, and was kind of disappointed...

    Oooh, that's a pretty good match. Just need to find a way to make the rest of the shoe black.....or switch soles from the Nikes to a pair of Unlimiteds.

    I e-mailed the guy at west coast leather factory 3 weeks ago to know what the status on the Jango boots, here is what he had to say:


    "Ludo...nothing yet...the sole is the problem. We would need to have many orders (100) to have the sole manufactured... before we can move ahead."


    That's really too bad, I bought Stormtrooper and Solo boots from him, and they are really great

    I found another shoe alternative at Walmart for you ladies or those of you with really small feet. They were $35 & the model is Sasson "Mika".

    OK,

    I own a pair of Bedford Stu Modules. I used a silver marker paint pen to do the accents on them. I would like to remove it and try something else instead. Will WD40 work? Or will it hurt the shoe and sole?? Any Ideas??


    Thanks!

    Hey everyone. I just joined up and am in the process of putting together an ABS/Fiberglass Jango setup. Anyways, I was wondering if anyone had seen the Kenneth Cole Thunder Bird? They are not an exact likeness, but have a similar sole and are currenty available.

    I just found several Bedford Stu's with the same sole as the Module and KenCole Pit Crew. Of course I can't find any available (DOH) but at least it gives a few more options. They are the BedStu Capsule, Rover, and Lunar.
