View Full Version : Lara Croft Boots?

i've indented a pair of combat boots a few month ago and i discovered that they're not as good as i hoped. actually they're ok and they're looking good, but they're also a bit uncomfortable and it takes ages till i've tied them up.

therefore i'm toying with the idea to sell them and buy me some other boots, which look more like Lara's boots, are more comfortable and maybe have some buckles or something.

so does anybody know where i could buy some Lara Boots?

You could try New Rocks. Lara wore them in the movies and they were included in Legend. Check Ebay, or www.newrock.es. They've got lots of buckles and laces (and a zip on the inside so you can put them on and take them off in seconds...) and they're really comfy once you've broken them in, but they are pretty expensive.

thank you Geck-o-Lizard! but the boots on that site are really too expansive for me :(
i'm just a poor pupil, who earns no money ^^
i'll watch at ebay perhaps, but i don't know, if i'll find some goodly.

Here's mine that I bought from an American seller on eBay (yes, I did get the pair even though there's only one in the picture ;)).

You just have to keep your eye out, and - as Grace and Elysia have said - keep a watch on brands like New Rocks and Doc Martens :tmb:

Where are those from :)?

Im making my first costume, so its gonna be a cheapy first attempt (if it turns out anything decent i'll invest more money into it)

and i think these are the boots i'll go for;

Not perfect but, they'll do the job just fine until I can afford 100+.

Oh, wow! I love those! :D I've recently been looking for a pair of boots like Lara Croft's as well -- but so far, no luck. And the boots that I've seen that looks close to the one's she has in legend are a bit pricey.
