I respectfully request a revision of the captioned costume.

With regard to point 11:

11. Grey suede boots with suede wraps around them and 3 white straps.

I have noticed that generic Snowspeeder pilots have the option of tan as well as grey boots:

3. Tan/grey Hoth-style boots and gaiters with accurate movie-style strapping or mid-calf black boots

Given that Luke’s Snowspeeder boots appear tan or “warm grey” (at least on all my screens) as opposed to “cool grey”, can we include this colour option for this costume?

Canonically, it appears that these are the same boots as Dagobah and Bespin boots. We even see a hint of his Bespin jacket under his flightsuit on Hoth.

Reference for Luke Skywalker Snowspeeder boot colour:


Reference for Bespin boots – light brown boots with light brown straps or just really dirty tan boots with white straps?:


Reference for “Bespin” jacket under Hoth flightsuit:

I agree they are the same boot but with the added white straps.

They actually are different boots. The Snowspeeder boot is the one he wears with his Hoth trooper gear. It's a grey color with white straps and white trim along the vertical shaft of the boot. The shaft of the boot is also shorter than the Bespin boot.

The Bespin boots are just a shade or two darker then the color of his fatigues, with a taller boot shaft, and no (or very slightly) contrasting color on the straps.

Hope that helps!!

Thank you, CaptSolo77.

Despite them being different boots, is there any consensus that tan should be allowed as an alternate Hoth/Snowspeeder boot colour?

They certainly look more tan to me than grey.
