What do you think of this one

with the code that shows at the top of the screen - you get $20 off and free shipping.

makes the total  $59.90 shipped to me in the US.

 

Is the rounded toe acceptable for EIB?  Centurion?

 

 

it looks much more rounded toe than the Bass

The leather sole of the lands end boot may be kinda slippery.... looks ok to me otherwise.

I wonder if Sears carries them? From reading in the link. You can return them to Sears if ordered by phone or online from Landsend. The reason is if they do not fit right.

I'm doing a shadow stormtrooper, so I won't need to paint these! And they have my size. I'm jumping on these Lands' End ones, great find.

Those look reasonably similar to the originals. The originals also had leather welted soles. This just makes them more accurate. Quality dress footwear is traditionally made with a leather sole. It's not excessively slippy, especially when scuffed up on concrete/tarmac.

I just bought mine last night.  They had free shipping on orders over $50.  Right now they have 20% off regular priced items and free shipping, but the boots are on sale.  You can still get the free shipping though.

One question on these.  Is it easier to paint the spice brown ones or the black ones with the angelus white?  How many coats? would y'all suggest?

 

I got the black ones and I had to do like 5 coats.  Although... I was using an air brush, so each coat was lighter than if it were brushed.  Also one bottle of the white is good for probably two sets of boots.

You should go for the black version, the originals were black.:-)

You will be using between 5-9 layers, apply thin layers. You should sand them lightly, and wipe them with acetone, before painting...and leave time enough to dry between applying the various layers....

I did the 4oz, Regular White.

 

Here is the link for the paint I got.  Directly from Angelus.  Probably cheaper from Angelus Direct, rather than Amazon.  $5.99+$5.05 shipping.  $11 amazon vs like $5 from Angelus.
