Are these acceptable boots for Centurion?


Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Given the current snag with TK Boots. I've been looking around for alternatives. Would these boots be acceptable for Centurion level after painting white?

I was looking in the photo archive in this folder:

They seem to be a decent match...

 

Thoughts?

Maybe these if the stamped logo on the side can be obscured?

 

 

i dont think can be oscured

 

today i just got mine bought from ebay

 

they fit ok. Now i have to remove the sewn circle logo and dye with angelus white leather paint as showed here

 

Painting the shoes is simple. The Angelus paints have good coverage, and are easy to work with. When applying light colors over dark leather, expect to use multiple coats. I had to use 5 coats to cover black leather with white paint, but other colors usually work fine with 2-3 coats. Allow the paint to dry between coats, I recommend at least 20 minutes. As with most paints, several thin coats is better than one thick one!

 

the light stamped logo will be oscured by the armor

Yea, I have a feeling even as small as it is, obscuring the logo wouldn't be possible.

 

I found these:

Nothing in the US though..

looks fine but we can see only 1 side, we can't see if there is any logo to the other side

How about finding a pair from Loake in the UK? I have several pairs of boots from this brand, I know they are a bit expensive, but handcrafted, Goodyear welted shoes will last a lifetime, and they are a pleassure to walk in.

Take that back, I'm not sure whether the Brogini jodhpurs have a label and I dont see one on the pics on the internet.  Some of their other shoes do have a label.  Maybe somebody who lives in the UK could tell us or you could call them.

 

 

Honestly, I think somebody from the 501st should approach Nocona boots with the appropriate design and get them on board.  When Star Wars VII comes out, they will be positioned and ready to go.  I think they are part of Justin, but they are smaller and might look at it as a good investment.

How about these then?

They are women size but go up to UK9 don't know if they can be worn by men but i guess they do?

 

 

if your feet are small enough to fit a 8 or a 9 then maybe these boots could be ok to use with just a small amount of painting to do to them etc. until you can get your hands on a pare of TK one's.

just a thought...

They look the part but, they only go up to womens size 9, and more importantly, they are made of plastic through and through, probably won't last, and I doubt they are comfortable to wear...just my 2 cents...

I didn't want to start another thread, and didn't want to risk hijacking someone else's thread, but this thread seems the appropriate place for my post.  :)

 

I've been doing some research into boots to get, and here are a couple I have found.  I'd like to know people's opinions on these:

Nope. Have a look at the original boots found in our gallery "photo references" and you'll learn why those won't do and what to look for next. The link is up top, under our logo.

Well then, I'm going to have a hell of a time finding boots - because the second one I linked to from zappos looks *exactly* like the photo reference boot.  It's just a darker black.  Which if these are getting painted, it'll be white.  

 

If there's something wrong with them, I'm just not seeing it.

 

EDIT:

 

I just realized - this thread is specifically for Centurion certification.  I should make a new thread, because I'm looking for boots for 501st / EIB certification.

 

DOUBLE EDIT:

 

Ok, I think I see - it's because the elastic part isn't in a U shape.  Which is 501st cert level.  Man, it's going to be difficult to find boots.

It is not the shape of the band that is the only problem with these. The way they are sewn, giving them that extra seam ("tongue") on the front, is the bigger issue, the front must be all smooth. The soles also appear a bit too large......and the DocMartens also have the brand name embossed, that is a no go as well. Edited by SorenM

I just got some Brogini Jodhpurs. They are acceptable for 501 and nice. Not going for Centurion myself. Half size was a bit difficult to get and mine are probably too tight, butthey are reasonably priced and I have no other complaints. No markings other than the pull strap which can be removed.
