Scout Trooper – Boots – New Direction

Mail Call…

I had been trying to work on my boots, doing the sole cut outs, but I just wasn’t feeling it. It’s an extremely tedious process, and I’m just not happy with the way they were turning out. I was finding it very difficult to even get excited about working on them. After wrestling with the decision, I decided to switch gears and order the Crowprops Biker Scout base boots

Today, my boots arrived, and I can’t be more happy with the way they look, and fit. The soles are amazing, and are VERY close to the original shoe soles used for the film…

Making Them More Screen Accurate…

The screen used boots had a very unique sole design. The base hiking boot is no longer widely available, so the next best thing is to cut the soles of the available work boots to match the screen used boots as closely as possible…

Here is the way the sole looks, out of the box.

This is the actual base boot used for the film.
