Hi Guys
Just contemplating Jedi robes and wondered if these boots would meet approval?

Boots have to match the belt or obi is that right?

Cheers

I cant help you on this one, unfortunately, but I cant seem to access the link. It says it's a 404 error?

Hello Rebel Rach,

Most people do find it harder to get a jedi style boot, but there are a number of things to consider.

1. The boot must be at a minimum of calf level and cannot extend past the knee
2. Your boot colour must be the same colour as that of your belt, namely if you have a dark brown belt, you need dark brown boots, light brown with light brown, black with black, etc.
3. There are 2 main style of boots used, one been the easiest the equestrian style and the other is a lace up boot with a leather splat (namely the ones Obi-wan and Anikin wears). There are many jedi with many different styles to these boots, some include Qui-Gon Jinn which has a 8 strap feature on the front, Kit Fisto which has a buckle on the outter ankle of the boot, Bultar Swan has a zipper on the inner side of the boots, and the list goes on, but all of these styles have a square cut on the top, there isn't anything against it but it is something to consider.

I do hope this helps, but ultimately the choice is yours on which boot you feel fits your outfit. And make sure you get all the comfort you need from that boot, for some people might say it is fine to wear it after 5 minutes but will regreat having them after 30 minutes of standing, and you can imagine what they will say if they were walking.

These were recommended to me by Azrael on the Redback forum in Brissie. You're Brissie based aren't you?
Cheers

Ive been told to stay away from these... They dont breathe, so your legs will swell and get stuck in them, and being the budget riding boot series, they arent particularly comfortable, to ride and stand in..

Best bet is a guy called Daniel in South America..

If you do chose to get your boots from Jdos, be prepared to wait. I ordered and paided for a pair of boots for my Kit Fisto off him on on the 17th of April and I have only seen one boot made to this date. I do like the quality and he does go in depth with measurring your foot and leg, but the communication from him is very slow, you will be lucky to hear from him after one month.

Again I'm not saying to stay away from him, just to be prepared to wait.

I have a pair of the Duplins from Horseland. And they might be nice and comfy, but for someone who has a calf muscle, not easy to get on or off. So I modified them to be shorter and they did fit better, but still near impossible to remove. Since I have been using German jack boots on my NR Jedi.
