    A board member here did a replica Jango boot run which looked exactly like the Pit Crews. They were a fairly big ticket item & there wasn't enough of a demand to justify a second run.

    The last pair look pretty good for a stand-in. Once dyed black & with the laces covered with armor, they will be close enough for the average Joe!

    I knew of a lot of womens shoes that have a VERY similar sole, but some were on sandals and such..but I figured if there was anyway to remove it and attach another shoe to the top.

    But I guess the real question is...can...and this is a BIG WHAT IF type...would one be able to either cast or sculpt the sole, and then make rubber copies? Then if we had the boot bottoms, and then being able to attach a shoe atop of that?

    Maybe it's time another thread was created to see if there is enough intrest to another replica run.

    I bet some people need a seond pair by now.

    Well seeing as how the last run took about a year to complete, I think it is better to source other alternatives. The original maker also was left holding several pairs, tying up his money, so I don't know if he would be too eager to step up again. You never know though.

    If anyone is looking for size 11, contact Reinone. He has a couple of pairs of the awesome repro boots he did last year. These are as good as they get.:thumbup

    Good find

    Those will look pretty accurate once the foot armor is on!

    Where did you come across womens' shoes that look close? I've been looking everywhere for weeks now, even in the boys' sections and have found nothing.

    how is that supposed to help him? you linked him to yet another thread all about discontinued shoes that ends in "check ebay".
    That should be a disclaimer for anyone before scrolling through the pages of out of date material around here I know I've been in every nook and cranny of this Jango forum over the last 4 or has it been 5 months? it's been so looong since I've seen daylight... all I can see is shades of bluish purple, shades of greyish black, shades of blue, and I catch myself looking at everyones shoe soles! This costume is a mental disease..

    hey, got a question i've always wondered....why are 99.9% of these boots discontinued? i see that the Co. probably doesn't know about the demand for these boots, but, you'd think that if they saw all these were going fairly quickly they would bring them back...but, i'm just glad i was able to snag a pair of Reinone's boots....which i'd love to thank him for all the hard work, and effort put into that project....i'd also like to thank my mom and dad......just kidding...

    Well he did ask about what woman's shoes were a close match. I can't help it if they are discontinued.

    How bout these?? I know the uppers are all wrong but the soles look pretty close. The uppers can be dyed black and the boot armor covers the rest.
    They are called "Nike Air coast Hiker" at the JCPennys site.

    Goldenrod, if it were me buddy, I'd ditch the brown Nikes idea and use a pair of cheap black jungle boots until I could find a shoe with an exact sole. Just my opinion, but I think the low leather upper profile and toe of a basic jungle boot (the kind you can buy at most military surplus stores) would resembles the Jango boot more than any type of shoe. Plus the jungle boot's aggressive and jagged sole somewhat begins to resemble the Jango sole...just my opinion.

    I'll look for a pic to post to show what I'm talking about.
    The first boot(my 1st choice) could be had at $26, the second at $45, and the other two were about $100.
    Hope this helps in your quest, even if it makes you think I've lost my freakin mind and you now know what won't work.

    my only down side with that, is the toe is too round, I know I wore those my whole time in the army, and it tapers in instead of being nice and square, and that sole isnt a standard sole, its an aftermarket sole available on some boots, otherwise you have to get it put on custom. I just don't see that boot being valid either. Trying to find a good base is tough. honestly a good pair of squared toed doc martins isnt a bad way to go. take a rotary tool, with a sanding drum, sand off all the ribs on the sole, then mark out where you want your recesses cut, dremel those in, then paint. thats what I did, and it came out pretty good. I'll post pics later.

    Thanks Cruzer i completely see what you mean.
    Abntroop, i also see what you mean.
    I was mainly just looking at the sides and shape of sole.
    I've been tring to get ahold of Reinone,but i guess hes forgotten to check his pm's lately because of the Holidays.Wish i had his email.

    Cruzer, I think the jungle boots might be my choice until I can find something really accurate... can't really be a barefoot Jango now can I?

    abntroop: You did what to your docs!?!
