I just got a nasty surprise with the new shipping costs. 8 oz and lower is now only $13 but one oz more and it jumps to $22. (It used to be $14.40 for up to about 13oz)
So I have changed the shipping to the 9oz or higher rate to avoid losing money. BUT, I will refund $9 if your package can go for the 8oz rate which happens occasionally.
But please expect that it is unlikely the package will weigh only 8oz, mostly kid size covers will fall into that range and for some reason "taupe" is lighter than the other colors.
BESPIN BOOTS SHOE COVERS
PAINTED FOR A DIRTY LOOK
Custom made to your measurements
sizes 5 - 12 men
see the end of this description for what I need
The shoe covers are made of felt fabric.
There is black elastic at the bottom to hold them snugly on your shoe like a stirrup.
There are 3 straps that go up the boot leg and wrap around and fasten with hook side velcro.
Velcro is sewn onto the strap near the end where it is attached to the bootleg, so that the free end of the strap wraps around and adheres to the velcro.
There is no fuzzy side velcro at the end of the strap to avoid stitch lines which look awful. The strap adheres to the hook side because the felt fabric itself is enough to catch. So the felt will become fuzzy at this area, but is hidden on the underside of the strap so it will not look bad.
If it gets out of control, you can trim fuzz off with scissors.
The "dirty" is grey spraypaint and a little of a similar color to the boot color to blend
These shoe covers look best on a shoe with some fullness to it, like an athletic shoe (running shoe, trainer). Oxford type work shoes are good, too. Square toed dress shoes seem to work as well.
You want to fill out the shoe cover foot part for the best look. Even though the bespin Boot looks like a skinny, flat foot, My design needs to be filled out.
Sneakers like Vans or Keds do not work as they have no body, low profile and a flat sole with no gap in which the stirrup can nestle. If the stirrup is on a flat sole you would have an uncomfortable experience when you walk.
WHAT COLOR WILL YOU CHOOSE?
The first thing you need to do is "Your Research". Look at videos online, google image search "Luke Dagobah"
I will not give a recommendation on color. Please decide based upon the information I am giving you. I can't presume to know what look you are going for or how you judge the aesthetic.
Another issue that people have is they use a reference shot that has awkward lighting and can come up with a very different outfit than what Luke actually wears but it still probably looks good (even right).
You should match your boots to whatever pants you have settled on.
Think about what look you are going for and then choose which color for yourself from the swatches shown in the images. If you don't have your costume yet, wait til you have it and then order the shoe covers. It takes me 4 days or less to get them in the mail after I get your information.
In the photos,
I have given you a swatch sheet that is set against an Anovos Bespin suit jacket because this has been a huge request. You can choose which color looks best to you. So you don't need to wait if you are ordering Anovos. The model in the Anovos suit is wearing Taupe dirtied up.
Some people are even trying to match action figures and request colors I wouldn't expect.
That is how I came upon using Grey and Camel
Hover a photo of your pants over the photos in the gallery to see which looks best.
The colors are as follows:
First photo is Taupe
next is Sandstone
YOU MUST TELL ME MEASUREMENTS
Your shoe covers are custom made to your shoe size and leg measurements!
You can put the information in the "message to seller" area on the payment page
DO NOT PURCHASE UNTIL YOU ARE ABLE TO INCLUDE THE INFO WITH YOUR PAYMENT
HERE'S WHAT I NEED TO KNOW:
**WHAT COLOR DO YOU WANT? Taupe, Sandstone, Camel or Grey.
**WHAT IS YOUR SHOE SIZE?
as well as shoe size #, tell me if they are for a child, Man or Woman. Also tell me if it is UK, US, etc
(if you see a EUR size on your shoe, that is my preference and then I don't need the men's women's or country info)
**WHAT IS THE MEASUREMENT AROUND THE FATTEST PART OF YOUR CALF? (if you give me a measurement smaller than 14", I will question it, so reassure me if 13" or smaller is correct)
**HOW TALL DO YOU WANT THE BOOT LEG? With a shoe on, measure from the floor upward to the spot on your leg where you'll want the boot leg to end. The best way to measure boot leg height is to get down on bended knee and measure from the floor up to no more than your inner bend, not your kneecap.
If you give me a measurement shorter than 14", I will question it, so reassure me if 14" or shorter is correct
