    Show us your clone boots!

    In the process of putting together a pair of clone boots for my shocktrooper.
    They are work boots with a few add-ons but I'm not quite sure if they are up to the task?????
    Would be grateful if people would post pics of their clone boots!

    Mike, love those boots man

    Dougie - I know where u are going with this!
    I know lots of UK troopers use the microfibre chukka shoe as a base, although its sole is wrong.



    I've investigated gettin a new sole put on these, and ahve got quotes like 15-20 quid.

    I was thinking of poppin into Tesco to pick a shoes with that flat sole and gonna try to do a boot Mike style. Will post pics of the base shoe after I sneak off to Tesco ;P

    Very impressive Mike, thanks for the info.

    Yeah Nate, that's exactly the pair that I have, not really happy with them.

    Could someone post up the template for the Clone Boots details? I just picked up some white shoes from Wal-Mart for cheap, and I can't seem to find it on ct.n.

    Here are Danny's.

    After a couple of troops he ended up cutting off the whole top of the foam at the top edge of the shoe. And he took the front part that he cut off and glued it on the inside of the shin armor piece for padding . He has also weathered them very nicely.



    They have held up great!

    We are in the process of prototyping boots. It was near impossible to model the boots properly since they are never closely featured in any shots in the movies. It was a ton of trial and error but we think we are relatively close at this point.

    Look really good, if anything maybe make them a little taller. Just so theres no chance for a mishap.

    Re: Show us your clone boots!

    Yeah, I agree they should be taller in real life. This model was to make it as accurate as possible. We still have some tweaking to do but I think it's mostly there. I notice that I left the cross bar out of the ankle buttons. Oops.

    I don't believe those rectangles on the top of the foot should be recessed like that. The side view shows it as raised, with the rectangles with sharp corners rather than rounded off corners.

    Re: Show us your clone boots!

    These are mine, they were a pretty quick and dirty job (15 mins per boot, made for about 5usd) they're more of test than anything, I'm planning on redoing them with thinner foam over the toes and sorting the bottoms out with flat soles when my armour kit arrives, also missing the ankle disks atm

    (ignore the shin armour, they are from an fx suit)
    In the reference shots I've seen, the spat part almost looks like it should be ridged armour.. not sure how practical that would be though...

    I'm using these boots (puma's striscia 2), to modify them I'm using white rubber rainboots (cutting out for straps, and neck flaps).

    @ postmortem, will they be sold anytime soon? could you pm me with a price, when you start selling them?

    That style is not made anymore. I had them made over 5 years ago. I took some designs down that I made with the flip top front and the zipper for ease to put on, to a boot guy and had only 4 pairs made. They cost over $240.00 a pair. All leather and very comfortable and 501st accepted.

    They are the current boots that can be made from shoes.
