According to the CRL, Jedi boots are not allowed to have "visible outside zippers". Are "concealed" rear zippers, as per the image below, acceptable?

We have had lots of jedi with back zippers on their boots approved in my base. Outside seemed to refer to the outside of the leg, rather than the boot.

"outside zipper" refers to the outside of the leg;
zippers on the "inseam" of the leg, are always allowed;
zippers on the back are allowed IF they are 'hidden' (with a flap of leather).

this is what the judges are looking for:
- inseam of the leg, always allowed.
- outside of the leg, never allowed.
- back of the leg, only allowed if "hidden".



the boots in your pic seem OK to me.
they have a hidden zipper, on the back of the leg.
hope this helps. cheers.

Incidentally, those are some really nice looking boots! May I ask where you got them?
