Inexpensive Boots


I was searching for nice boots to make into Begins boots since I dont have much money, and I stumbled upon this costume site. They have a ton of boots and I thought the rest of you guys might want to check it out.

I'm definately going to order a pair from them soon.

Re: Great selection of cheap boots...


This is where I got mine from, about a year ago they were $40, now that they're $30 I may want to get another set. I've been very happy with mine. I have been wanting to get them resoled just for looks with a military style sole but just havent gotten around to it.

I have used those boots the last 2 years. You can getthem cheaper on Ebay from them. it is listed under the user "All Costume" They periodically list them for around $20 + shipping. Just need to be patient if others out bid you.

these are the same boots when you type in "Batman or Jedi boots" on ebay. They look pretty good.

I got a pair of the pirate boots for my costume last year, slippery and they click clack. And I'm kinda tall with longer legs so they only come up about mid calve, mostly in part that I have big calves and they won't go past there. So keep that in mind, If you're "husky".

I took care of the slippery issue by putting on the soles a strip of that "no-slip" tape you see on stairs, boat ramps, etc.

It's almost like walking on sandpaper, so if you do it, be careful when walking on carpet, especially someone else's. :wink

Thank you to all for your responses.
I will definately try out that non slip tape. Where can you get some of it?
I would assume just any hardware store.

Yeah, any hardware store should have it. Non-skid strips for the bathtub/shower should also work.
