Kevlar® Armored Returns Boots - Pics


I will wear these boots at San Diego Comic-Con, which have epoxy-Kevlar versions of Artsee1's Returns shin guards he graciously allowed casting in e-K. The e-K instep guards are my own design, in the spirit of Returns, but multi-segmented.

Image

Not keeping what I don't wear, I'll let go of my only remaining e-K shin armor and e-K Returns-style instep guards (also allowed as experimental castings). Below is that more wrapping armor; and if any Bro should want the Size 12 waterproof vinyl boots, you can have those too. The shins are Velcroed®, and the insteps can either be riveted by included metal binding posts or Velcroed. Being amateur made, no assurance or warranty of any kind is provided for functional or ballistic purpose, and I'm not planning to make more.

See ya at the Con?!

Zane

Thanks for asking about Comic-Con plans. We'll see.

Regarding spare stuff, serious inquiries only, guys. I'm not in business.

Re: Kevlar® Armored Returns-Style Boots


Thanks Dave, there are definitely things in the mill. Stay tuned.

Mel - 1st pic:
- shin guards 1 lb ea;
- instep guards 1/2 lb ea.
2nd pic:
- shins 2 lbs ea;
- insteps 1 lb ea. While the 1st pic shins are per the movie and protect less than the more wrapping ones in the 2nd pic, the 1st pic instep guards provide equivalent protection with less weight. So might you be open to accepting some movie indications could be doable rather than phony?
