Alright, so for a while I've been reading mixed reviews about Motorcowboys work. Finaly got the Snake Plissken boots and here goes:

1.As you can see -(as is) these are NOT totally Snake's boots, But we all know that. There is a lot of work yet to go into this. MC never claimed that these were gonna come with proper laches and cable bales etc,

2. Comfort - yes. VERY

3. Duracble - hmmmm -This is a costume piece no doubt and you'd be a fool to wear these "casually" or on a bike. Mannequins and Halloween -hell yes.

4. Quality:..Yeah. ok. Not bad at all. Some of the materials used are a little suspect. Really good quality leather used on some parts and sketchy PVC-ish on others. I'm only Slightly less pleased for the price I paid. Again it's for a mannequin. I'm a sneakers guy.

5. Accuracy - Let's face it - you get what you paid for. Is it Magpie quality? Hardly but with a little work, plates added, cable loops , golf spikes, and the proper latches I have - it's gonna be pretty damn close.

Hope this helps for anyone considering picking these up. If yes, order WELL IN ADVANCE (6 months for me.)

I'm no expert, but it seems like someone could find a motorcycle boot that was just as close as those.

How much do they charge?

only reason i ask is because the boots they show on their site have the clutch guard (i don't know the technical name) up front by the toes. not bad though. i'll probably end up going with these. only other custom bootmakers i can find are for cowboy boots...:unsure

what leather type/finish did you select for these?

those are nice...They are made by the people who made the originals right? And is someone doing a run of those metal shin plates?

The Alpinestars Super Victory boots are a modern take on their old 70s mx boots. These have the metal shin guard, and would be pretty close to the Plissken boots.
