Alrighty, I know Christmas was quite a while ago, but I've only bothered to do this now. First, check out the awesome gifts (people know me so well :rolleyes), but then take a gander at those boots.

They are, quite possibly, the best knee-high boots EVER. Quite comfy and they've garnered many stares from passerby over the past few months. Lastly, I've also worn them to parties (alongside that new fedora) as a steampunk hero/generic action hero-explorer. The thing is, are there any real costumes that use similar footwear? I don't want to modify them too bad, short of changing the buckles or something.

So, any ideas?

For some reason I see Ramona Flowers ( from scott Pilgrim ) Wearing those......


But you're a dude.....so that could be a problem.

Chill out dude, I'm just using your super-convenient Subspace highway...

I think you're onto something with the neo-explorer thing. Just make a new costume from scratch - design something cool for yourself.

You could do a generic Old Republic style Jedi. I bet they would compliment some minimal armor pretty well

I so want those boots!
Not sure on Old Republic, as I can't recall ever seeing laces on SW boots, but they'd really work for something Steampunk, or for a generic treasure/monster hunter type of costume (for some reason I'm thinking of The Mummy?)

Hehe... Well the boots are on eBay for roughly $170. Just look for "knee high leather boots." and Angelus, you're spot on with the Mummy idea. I've already been ordering some khaki trousers and shirts.

JediJayne, also a good idea. Unfortunately, compact body armor isn't my forte... but regardless, maybe I'll just start with a decent outer robe.

Well these ideas are all great so far; I am starting to design a custom hero outfit though. Maybe this will be the steampunk thread!

Well using a puffy white shirt, a black waistcoat, black hoodie, plenty of red cloth, a spaulder made from a leather jacket and a belt, and of course the boots of awe, one can pull off a pretty effective Assassin.

Man, I am lanky.:lol
