THE BOOTS HAVE LANDED!

Well guess what landed on my desk this afternoon…

Don’t you just love it when you get parcels… especially when they contain your made to order classic Stormtrooper boots from Imperial Boots (www.imperialboots.com). The expression ‘happy bunny’ springs to mind 🙂

Really impressed with these. The guys at Imperial Boots have done a great job and as far as I am concerned live up to their reputation – I’m glad I made this choice.

TIP: Any other troopers or costume builders considering buying a pair of Imperial Boots, do as everyone has said and go 1 size up on your normal shoe/trainer as they can be a little narrow. I am a 10 so ordered UK11 and they fit perfectly.

Now the boots have arrived I can complete the shin armour. These shots are with the armour taped together and I can feel already they will need a bit more trimming, especially around the back of the knee, however, even at this early stage the shins and boots combo is looking good 🙂

Nothing more to do now but box these bad boys up in readiness for the completed suit build… and maybe get some white leather cleaner 🙂
