I got theses boots and before I take off the strap and steam the logo out; I wanted some feed back on if they would wok for my ANH X-Wing Pilot.

They are 16" tall and the suit legs blouse well over it but I was thinking about having them cut down a couple inches, just below the top strap.





Thanks in advance

John.

You would have to remove the strap and buckle. I wouldn't cut them shorter.

You really want to find something close to these surplus German Jackboots


From the standard:

X-Wing pilot (Episode IV; VI), Y-Wing pilot (Episode IV):

2). Mid-calf black boots (Jack boots or engineer boots are acceptable. Leather pull-on style preferred with low heels. No laces. No ankle buckles (small buckle at top edge of boot allowable if covered by blousing). No non-black zippers. Any zipper closure must either be hidden or on the inside calf. No zippers on front or outside calf of boots. High-Calf boots are acceptable with sufficient blousing of the flight suit legs.)
